London: `Desperate Housewives` star Eva Longoria regrets adopting a vegan diet when she was younger as she passed out in the first week of her tough new regime.

The 36-year-old sais she has always been a keen meat eater but embarked on a healthier lifestyle which proved to have drastic consequences, reported Health magazine.

"I think the time that I became a vegan is my biggest regret. I love the philosophy behind veganism, but I went from one day eating chicken and meat to eating just salad. I didn`t know how to be a vegan. I didn`t know about soy or almond butter. I didn`t know that there are great breads. So I literally stuck to salads. And I think I passed out the first week," Longoria said.
