In a video recently posted on Beyoncé’s website, Beyoncé along with our Founder Marco Borges raise awareness of the tremendous benefits of a plant-based diet. The video, now seen by thousands of people around the world, has started an open and honest discussion on why trying a plant-based diet may be the answer you’ve been looking for when it comes to getting healthy, boosting energy and losing weight.

Tired of Being Tired
In the video, Marco says that many people come to him for help and that they are “tired of being tired” and tired of treating symptoms but never treating the underlying cause. Instead, they are given medications to help with symptoms of disorders like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes but never given direction on how to change their lifestyle to drastically improve their health. Marco has seen dramatic improvement in the health of his clients and friends who have switched to a plant-based diet or even just tried a plant-based diet for 22 days. He says, “It’s not about having to go all in with a plant-based diet. It’s about allowing people to define plant-based living in a way that works for them.”
“I Felt So Incredible”
When Beyoncé challenged herself to a plant-based diet for 22 days, she said that she “felt so incredible.” She noted that the weight came off fast and the weight stayed off; something that she mentions was not easy in the past. In addition, she noticed that her skin was really firm and a lot tighter – an added benefit of healthy plant-based diet. Her great experience with 22 Days Nutrition inspired her to share her thoughts on it with everyone – and we are so grateful for her support!
Raymond Lost 70 Pounds
More often than not, switching to a whole-foods plant-based diet can be the ticket to a new life. In the video, we meet Raymond, who lost 22 pounds in just 22 days following The 22-Day Revolution and after 4 months of following a plant-based diet lost 70 pounds. Not only did he lose the excess weight, he also lowered his critically high blood pressure and high cholesterol and he never took one prescription to do it! His only prescription: eating a healthy and balanced plant-based diet. His energy has skyrocketed and he no longer has the sleepless nights he did in the past.
Marco finishes the video by inviting viewers to try a plant-based diet to see just how delicious it can be. It doesn’t have to mean that you are being deprived or that you have to stick to a set of rules. It means defining a healthy plant-based diet in a way that works for you. That’s when you win. Remember, it takes 21 days to make or break a habit and by the 22nd day, you’ve created a healthy habit. After that, you are armed with the tools you need to go forth with a healthy lifestyle that fits your needs. As Marco says, “It’s not a destination that we arrive at, it’s a journey that we take for as long as we’re here.”
