AceShowbiz - Toni Braxton is adopting a vegan diet to help in her ongoing battle with lupus.

The "Spanish Guitar" singer was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease in 2008, which sees the immune system attack healthy cell tissue within the body, and has made several life changes to manage the condition and maintain a career onstage.

Speaking to website Prevention.com, Toni revealed she's "in the process" of adopting a plant-based diet, which has improved her blood work and given her more energy.

The singer, who previously ate a pescatarian diet, explained, "I'm going fully plant-based. It's making me feel better, so there is some truth it... But I do miss a good burger!"

Toni went on to explain how lupus affects her day-to-day life, revealing she has microvascular angina and continues to experience blood clots. She said that despite having great doctors and medication, she has to be careful.

"I can't do five or six shows a week like I used to, but I can do three or four shows," she explained. She also holds back from dancing on stage, joking, "I'm not a dancer but I do the 1-2 electric slide."

The star recently completed her As Long As I Live Tour, in support of her 2018 record, "Sex & Cigarettes".
