Before we heard what Beyoncé's trainer had to say about how he got her to slim down, we just would've assumed it was from riding Jay Z's surfbort.
You know, just grainin' on that wood!
Turns out, that's only part of the equation — and it actually took a LOT of hard work to see her in the shape we all peep'd at the Grammys!
Bey's trainer and nutritionist, Marco Borges, has no qualms in revealing the secrets… and yes, it has everything to do with the 22 Days vegan challenge!
Here's what he said:
"They're incredible human beings and we've developed a really beautiful friendship over the last seven years, and we were just talking about the benefits of plant-based nutrition, and health, and life, and I thought, it would be cool if I challenged them to a plant-based breakfast just one meal a day… A couple of months later it was so easy that they decided on their own to come to me and say, 'Hey, you know, your company 22 Days Nutrition, it stands for something that's taking on a new habit over the course of 21 days, and on the 22nd day something new happens, so it would be really cool if we try that challenge ourselves. We want to go plant-based.' And Jay says, 'Yeah my birthday is coming up, and I think it would be really cool, if for my birthday I just did this, like, spiritual health cleanse and I tried something new. … it was amazing."
Wow! It's so cool to get that behind-the-scenes insight!
And obvi it worked! He continued:
"Most people have that imbalance. And it's when they take control of their diet is when they truly take control of their health."
The cool thing is that, yes, this type of challenge is intense, but EVERYONE can do it! Be it the 22 Days or the Whole 30, this kind of re-set to the way you think about food and health is amazing!
