It takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day you have cemented your actions into new habits that can alter your life completely. This makes 22 day challenges a great way to change yourself, your eating habits, your mood, and even your body for the better.
Jay Z, following this line of thinking, announced on the 3rd of December, one day before his 44th birthday, that he and Beyoncé would be embarking on a 22 day lifestyle change where they would follow a vegan, plant-based diet for those three weeks. What comes after, they don’t know, but their new habits will likely hold them to a healthier standard for quite some time. You can do the same thing, following their lead to a better you.
No matter how you feel about these celebrities, Jay Z and Beyoncé are doing something very clever by giving themselves a realistic challenge they know they can accomplish with specific deadlines. That is one of the best ways to enact change, reach goals, and improve health. We invite everyone to do the same. We know very well that not everyone who comes here is vegan or vegetarian and we don’t expect everyone to make the change right away or all the time. We may want everyone to go vegan, but that choice is ultimately one only each individual can make.
But if you are here with us, reading these words, then you are definitely interested in your health and fitness levels. So, as we prepare for a new year and all the resolutions that come with it, we would like to encourage everyone to try a 22 day plant-based cleanse.
Cut out the meat, dairy, and highly processed foods for just 22 days and see how you feel at the end of it all. Enjoy more fresh fruits and vegetables and you will be startled at how real nourishment transforms your mind and body with invigorating minerals, living vitamins, and all the age-fighting antioxidants nature has to offer. These real, whole-food nutrients will feed your cells, refresh your mind, brighten your mood, and detox your body. Feel free to browse through all our recipes and articles for inspiration, help, and guidance as you do so.
It is just 3 weeks. The first few days may be difficult, but it will get easier every day after that. You can do it and we can help!
