I Tried Beyonce's Vegan Diet & upprevention.org is what happened.
My body, however, is less temple and more a place delicious foods go to meet their demise. This is not body shaming, just fact. Based on the idea that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, The Day Revolution is a guide for creating the good habits needed to live a healthier lifestyle.
I Did A Vegan Challenge For 22 Days And It Made A Huge Impact On My Eating Habits
Borges is an exercise physiologist, plant-based-living advocate, and lifestyle coach. You may have heard about Beyonce going vegan, which she attributes to Borges. The two then teamed up to launch Days Nutrition , an all-vegan food delivery service. Dean Ornish wrote the introduction and not only focuses on the health benefits of a vegan diet, but also touches on the environmental impacts of a meat-eating lifestyle. Borges offers strategies and tips on how to stay motivated and successful with what can be a difficult change for lifelong meat-eaters.

The strict diet meant no sugar, flour, milk, meat, gluten, eggs, cheese, alcohol, coffee or soy products for at least three weeks, the time prescribed in The Day Revolution by Marco Borges. Instead, I sipped green smoothies, noshed on salads, learned how to make a mashed chickpea and smoked almond sandwich and spent hours in the kitchen preparing foods so I would not fail. As the Courier-Journal's food writer, I study eats for a living. And I care passionately about nutrition and exercise, with two marathon runs under my belt, two triathlons, a few mile bike rides and a rabid cycling habit for Kroger, errands and to work downtown from Old Louisville. But a recent marriage added three boys to my year-old son and has left little time for exercise. The approach of 50 and menopause in recent years has resulted in a maddening weight creep.
We respect your privacy. The Day Revolution is a vegan plan with an emphasis on eating fresh, whole, plant-based foods. The plan differs from a traditional vegan diet by eliminating processed vegan foods as well. Borges emphasizes the numerous health benefits of eating a plant-based diet , which include weight loss, increased energy, and a decreased risk of diabetes , high blood pressure , and heart disease. Why 22 days? Borges cites studies that have shown it takes 21 days to break an old habit and form a new one.
