Beyoncé Cochella Diet
I have spoken about the pros and cons of a vegan diet before, most of my friends who turn vegan make the mistake of substituting all the protein they need with high carb alternatives such as bread, bagels, wheat made whatever, etc. Looking at Beyoncé’s diet I feel like this is what I would have to go on to lose weight and maintain a vegan status. Here is the basis of her diet,
Beyoncé: I’m limiting myself to,
I don’t have Netflix so I did not watch her documentary but I did watch a lot of Youtubers trying it out and I discovered two things, #1 I find it extremely difficult to watch Youtubers and #2 there was a lot of substituting protein with carbs and sugar.
What I noticed was that people trying it would eat a ton of smoothie bowls and if you are a keto lifestyler like me you know that there is a ton of sugar in fruit that has been blended up together.
I was also surprised at the lack of imagination and creativity that went into meal preparation, so many people just gave up and bought ready made meals from vegan stores. I have always detested the idea of becoming vegan myself but I have friends who are vegan that I help with recipes all of the time! Just the other day my vegan friend discovered mushroom caps and I came up with four different recipes on the spot!
If I had to do this diet this is what it would look like,
Lettuce leaf (as the wrap)
Grilled red pepper, onion, cherry tomatoes, oregano and a touch of olive oil.
Boil up a head of broccoli,
Blend the broccoli with some of the water you boiled it in,
Add some non sweetened almond milk,
Bing Bang Boom Broccoli soup.
Steamed spinach with garlic
Grilled green pepper and onion
There you go! As well to this diet there was an excessive amount of training and cardio. I don’t know if this diet would really work better than other vegan diets without the exercise.
Try it, be careful, have fun!
