Despite being a vegan NYC Mayor Adams admits to ‘occasionally’ eating fish

After hiding it for days, New York City mayor Eric Adams admitted late Monday that despite being a vegan he occasionally eats fish.

“Let me be clear: Changing to a plant-based diet saved my life, and I aspire to be plant-based 100% of the time. I want to be a role model for people who are following or aspire to follow a plant-based diet, but, as I said, I am perfectly imperfect, and have occasionally eaten fish,” Adams said in a statement.

The yarn that Adams is not a strict vegan surface after Politico reported Friday that Adams has been spotted dining on fish at a Midtown Manhattan restaurant.

Sources said the latest statement of Adams contradicts his past pronouncements of consuming only plant-based foods.

According to reports, Adams has long told a story of cutting out animal proteins from his diet entirely in 2016 after being diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

Adams says the dietary move helped him reverse blindness in his left eye and wrote a book about it in 2020 entitled, “Healthy at Last.”

Despite his latest statement, Adams has long been a fervent advocate for veganism.
