Kristina Rihanoff has been strictly vegan since 2017. The professional dancer and former Strictly Come Dancing star has spoken of how her change to a plant-based diet has increased her energy levels and improved her health.
I’m choreographing and dancing, but I can manage it because I am fit, healthy and have a new-found lease of energy thanks to my vegan diet.
She has also stated that veganism helped to cure her partner, Ben Cohen, of life-threatening glandular fever.
Kristina who dazzled audiences with her wonderful routines of the hit TV show has been very open about the positive influence her change in lifestyle has had on both her and Ben. Indeed, feeling “energised” is something many vegans have stated as a benefit of going plant-based. She has also said that the change in diet helped her drop two dress sizes following the birth of her first child.
In 2019, Kristina appeared in a video for Veganuary titled: “The Best New Year’s Resolution”
