Meat Loaf is now vegan but he won’t change his name

The American singer and actor Meat Loaf is adopting veganism. Which is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet.


According to The Sun’s publication, he has joined the Frankie & Benny restaurant chain, famous for Italian food in the UK, and the British institution Veganuary, which aims to encourage people to spend January with vegan habits, so that they are slowly changed and incorporated the rest of the year.

To publicize the campaign, a video was released showing that Meat Loaf, meaning, declined to change its name to “Veg Loaf” or something like “Vegan Meatloaf”, but he changed his eating habits.

Meat Loaf Vegetarian History

And despite having the stage name with “meat” on, the 72-year-old musician already doesn’t eat meat for a long time.

He was a vegetarian for 11 years and said it all started with an unhealthy restaurant experience:

“I ordered rabbit and they served with its head without ears and eyes closed. I said: ‘Take it away and bring me vegetables and a salad.’ And from that moment on I became a vegetarian for maybe 11 years.”

However, he would have returned to consumption for health reasons as a way to lose weight.

Born Marvin Lee Aday in Dallas, Texas, the only child of Wilma Artie. A Gospel Music teacher and singer, and Orvis Wesley Aday, a police officer and World War II veteran. His fater had alcohol problems.

Meat Loaf’s most famous song is “Bat Out Of Hell”:

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
