Cliff Lipson/CBSBack in January, Beyonce announced a business partnership with exercise physiologist Marco Borges to launch 22 Days Nutrition, a home-delivery meal service that provides plant-based food. Now, she’s helped inspire an accompanying book, The 22 Day Revolution, penned by Borges with a forward by the singer, in which she recalls her experience with a 22-day vegan diet.
“Very proud to be on this journey with Marco! Congratulations on the release of your book, The 22 Day Revolution,” Beyonce writes on Facebook.
In the foreword Queen Bey writes that giving birth to Blue Ivy inspired her to “regain control of my health and my body.” She adds, “I decided I wanted to take a more proactive role in my health, and knowing all the amazing benefits, I knew this was the one. I was ready.”
Beyonce recalls the benefits she and her husband Jay Z experienced on their diets. “It took a few days to adjust, but what I discovered was increased energy, better sleep, weight loss, improved digestion, clarity, and an incredibly positive feeling for my actions and the effects it would have on those around me and the environment,” Bey writes. “I couldn’t believe how much of our health we can control with food.”
“The truth is that if a Houston-born foodie like me can do it, you can too — you just need to try it for 22 days,” Beyonce concludes.
The book is available for purchase online now.
