Beyoncé Credits Plant-Based Eating for Her Incredible Coachella Performance
Grammy Award winner Beyoncé’s newly released video is all about living a plant-based lifestyle.
With help from her personal trainer, Marco Borges, Beyoncé followed a vegan diet for 44 days in preparation for her famed 2018 Coachella performance. In the opening scene, Beyoncé films herself stepping onto a scale, saying she has a “long way to go.” She had given birth to twins in 2017 and was still recovering. She says, “I was a woman who felt like my body was not mine.”
Borges, who is heavily featured in the video, states: “We know the power of vegetables. We know the power of plants. We know the power of foods that are unprocessed and as close to nature as possible.” In the video, we see Beyoncé snacking on vibrant plant-based meals, completing strenuous workouts, and finally looking incredible in her Coachella costumes.
While this video detailing her vegan journey is new, last year Beyoncé took to Instagram and encouraged her millions of followers to join her and try eating plant-based in the weeks leading up to Coachella. The caption read: “44 days until Coachella!! Vegan Time!! Click the link in my bio to join me!”
When fans clicked the link, they found details on a 22-day plant-based challenge and a message from Beyoncé and Jay-Z:
We 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.
In 2013 with the encouragement of Borges, Jay-Z announced that he and Beyoncé would follow a vegan diet for 22 days, calling it a “spiritual and physical cleanse.” Beyoncé was so impressed with the results that she and Borges unveiled a vegan meal-delivery service through Borges’s company, 22 Days Nutrition, which offers nutrition-packed plant-based options.
In Beyoncé’s new video, Borges goes on to say:
When you’re eating plant-based, you will definitely have more energy, you will definitely sleep better, you’re definitely going to have improved complexion. Your mood is going to change completely.
