Beyonce and Jay-Z have decided to challenge themselves with a vegan diet for 22 days on the lead up to Christmas. The star couple have said that they would begin the diet challenge one day before Jay-Z’s 44th birthday and hope to continue until the day before Christmas. Jay-Z commented via his blog that the challenge initially started when his friend asked him to try a vegan breakfast and now he wants to take it a step further:

‘Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way. On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a ‘plant-based breakfast’ everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought.”

The rapper added that the diet change will also be a “spiritual and physical cleanse” and he hopes to keep fans updated on how it progresses over the 22 day period. He even asks his vegans readers to offer him advice and diet tips as he gives the animal-product free diet a go:

”It just feels right! So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress. Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please! I don’t know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We’ll see.”
