Going vegan is a lifestyle increasing in popularity and Jay Z and Beyonce may be joining the bandwagon. According to reports made yesterday, the power couple will be going on a three week “spiritual and physical cleanse” where they plan to cut out meat and foods that come from animals and follow a plant based diet. Jay wrote on his Life and Times website,
“On December 3rd, one day shy of my 44th birthday, I will embark on a 22 Day challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant based!”
The number 22 was picked because of the fact that he’s turning 44, the cleanse will be done in time for Christmas feasts and he also said his favorite trainer Marco Borges said that 22 is the magic number to make or break a habit. He said,
“Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way.”
We’ll how did he get to this point? Apparently,
“This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a ‘plant-based breakfast’ everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought…”
“I will post my progress…any professional vegans out there that have an great food spots please help out! Please…I don’t know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We’ll see.”
Here is the diet. I dunno Jay. I wouldn’t be able to give up chicken, but God bless.
