Beyoncé has announced that she’s switching to eating a plant-based diet as she prepares to headline Coachella festival, which is taking place in April in California.
The singer recently gave her 112 million Instagram followers an insight into her Coachella training regime by posting a photo of some food with the caption: “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!!
Beyoncé will be following a plant-based diet formulated by the 22 Days Nutrition meal planner, a programme that she co-founded with her husband Jay Z and celebrity trainer Marco Borges that was based on Borges’s book The 22-Day Revolution.
This isn’t the first time the singer has switched to a plant-based diet to lose weight, having made the switch back in 2013, with Jay Z publishing a blog post singing the praises of the diet. In fact, the pair even co-founded a meal delivery program based on the 22-Days program in 2015.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are quoted on the 22-day nutrition meal planner’s website saying that “[w]e want to challenge you as we challenge ourselves to move towards a more plant-based lifestyle and acknowledge you for standing up for your health and the health of the planet.”
However, in a 2015 video about 22 Days Nutrition that Beyoncé shared on her YouTube channel, she admitted that she did still eat meat on occasion at the time.
“Now, you know, I still eat meat, and it’s all about balance, but absolutely I make better choices,” she said.
“22 Days is about allowing people to define plant-based living the way that works best for them,” Borges explained in the video.
