I had no idea who she was when I read the question, so I did a quick google.
She's a young actor who adopted a vegan diet in a blaze of publicity a couple of years ago, and has now changed her mind - again, with a fair amount of publicity.
So far, so boring and so none of my or anyone's business.
But she's citing a recent, unspecified illness as her reason for abandoning her vegan diet.
Now, her illness is none of our business either. But she's not the first person to have made a big noise recently about abandoning a vegan diet for health reasons - but being vague or evasive about what those health reasons are.
A formerly vegan blogger, Voracious Vegan', whose repudiation of veganism has been cited several times recently by some of the non-vegans who contribute to this forum; described symptoms of a severe vitamin deficiency as a result of which her doctors advised her to change her diet.
But she claims that the deficiency was quickly - nay, instantly - cured by adopting a non-vegan diet. See the similarities between her born-again rhetoric and Goodwin's scrambled egg experience:
''Now after eating a single piece of steak, my heart thudded on, steady, strong, and slow. It made me cry all over again, this time in joy''.
If someone experience serious health problems and becomes convinced they are due to their diet, and so they change that diet - well that makes sense.
But it seems to me that 'voracious vegan' protested too much; she had either confused causation with correlation, or she just changed her mind about being vegan and, having blogged long and hard about the benefits of veganism, felt the need to make some serious excuses and over the top justifications.
I suspect Goodwin is on the same path.
The courageous and honest thing for both these people to have done when they gave up their much-publicised vegan diets would have been to say 'I've changed my mind; I've decided not to be vegan any more'. That I could respect
It seems clear to me they have both taken the less courageous route; it remains to be seen whether Goodwin will also feel she has to further justify her personal decision by invalidating her reasons for going vegan in the first place
