“Empowerment starts within you and your decisions. You can control the quality of your life with the food you eat. 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.”
What does she mean by being a foodie? As reported by Mirror.com, growing up in Texas was a unique experience that made food an important part of her life. Her family included food in everything, be it getting emotionally bonded with each other or commiserating with each other. They celebrated with food and expressed their love with food too.

Marco Borges’s Opinion on the Vegan Diet adopted by Beyonce
As reported by Yahoo.com, when Marco urged Bey to try out the vegan diet, he was not aiming for a quick weight loss solution. Rather he was focused on achieving the goal of optimum health. He wanted Bey to create healthy habits and adding plant-based foods into the diet.
A Word of Caution
If you are wondering that if the Vegan Diet adopted by Beyonce is so successful, then why isn’t everyone adopting it? Well, the simple answer is that this diet may have some adverse effects. One of the major problems with this diet is that people who follow it may have to risk getting hit by nutritional deficiencies, as they may not get ample amount of protein, zinc, iron, B-vitamins, vitamin D, and calcium which is usually found in animal foods. So, before blindly following a diet plan, you must consult with an experienced nutrition expert, who can guide you, whether the diet plan will suit you or not.
