The vegan challenge of Beyoncé

In January this Beyoncé and Jay-Z encouraged their fans to become vegan, ensuring that in addition to being a healthy diet was also a way to perform spiritual and physical cleansing. The couple wrote the introduction to the new book by exercise physiologist Marco Borges, entitled 'The Greenprint: Plant-Based Diet, Best Body, Better World'

"We used to think of health as a diet: some worked for us, others did not, having children changed our lives more than anything else, and once we considered health as the truth, instead of a diet, it became a mission for us to share that truth and way of life with as many people as possible, "says the couple.

In any case, the pair of musicians knows that they can not convince all their fans of become vegans, but if you invite them to follow a diet in which they consume more from plants and thus promote a "profound impact on our health and the environment".

We all have the responsibility to defend our health and the health of the planet. We are going to defend this together. Let's spread the truth. We're going to make this mission a movement, "remarked Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

The couple has proposed to their followers to make a 22 days challenge in which they assure that not only will they experience a noticeable weight loss, but that they will increase their energy level and improve the appearance of the skin. Some of the keys to the diet include eating three times a day, eating until you are satiated by 80% and following the ratio 80-10-10: 80% carbohydrates, 10% fat and 10% protein. "When the hydrates you drink are fresh and come directly from the earth, you can eat them in abundance," says Borges. "Such a diet, rich in vegetables and fruits, provides carbohydrates and proteins through legumes." Borges recommends doing 30 minutes of daily exercise, not drinking sugar, and drinking water or unsweetened teas.

In this vegan diet, the intake (of 1200 to 2000 calories) of fresh vegetables, red fruits, vegetable milks and legumes, seeds and other organic foods.
