When President Clinton was in office, it seemed like his diet consisted mostly of junk food, but now the former president says he's a vegan.

Clinton, who was in Indian on Tuesday, was celebrated for putting away endless quantities of hamburgers, donuts and barbecue. However, two heart procedures changed his attitude toward food.

Clinton's diet now consists of fruits and vegetables. His diet excludes eggs and oil products. Clinton now considers himself to be a vegan.

The former president has dropped more than 20 pounds and says his goal is to get his weight down to 185 -- the same weight from when he was 13-years-old.
