How going vegan, like Beyoncé, for seven days changed this fan's eating life.
Beyoncé went on a strict vegan diet for twenty two days and she claimed it changed her life, so much that the singer recently declared that she is now a complete vegetarian.
Beyoncé and Jay Z’s friend/trainer/nutritionist, Marco Borges, has used the star as a muse in his new book, The 22-Day Revolution, describing it as a "plant-based program that will transform your body, reset your habits, and change your life."
Beyonce, who wrote the foreword for the book, later congratulated the author and wrote on Facebook: "Very proud to be on this journey with Marco! Congratulations on the release of your book, 'The 22 Day Revolution'."
The book is based on the idea that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, so the book is a guide for creating the good habits needed to live a healthier lifestyle.
A fan decided to opt for the Beyonce's way by eating like her for seven days.
She followed the vegan diet strictly by eating three vegan dishes every day in order to avoid any temptations, the below is her verdict.
"Borges and Beyoncé are definitely onto something. By the end of the week, I’m six pounds lighter. I convince myself that the weight loss is motivation enough to put bacon on the backburner for a few more days, maybe weeks. Fifteen days later, with just a few white-knuckle moments, I've managed to actually complete all 22 days of the 22-day challenge. I reintroduced meat and diary back into my diet during a trip to Paris but have noticed that my eating habits are definitely different—I expect for good. Giving up meat and diary for 22 days has given me way more control over all other cravings. I’ve also adopted a “greener” approach to eating. All in all, Beyoncé would be proud."
