Beyonce’s fitness trainer, Marco Borges, said a vegan diet can spur easy weight loss and confer many anti-aging health benefits.
While low-carb diets such as the Paleo, Atkins and ketogenic plans are all the rage these days, Borges said on the May 13 episode of the Dr. Oz Show that a high-carb vegan diet is better for weight loss and overall health.
Marco advocates a vegan diet that eliminates dairy and all animal products with an 80-10-10 macronutrient ratio. Borges says 80% of your diet should be carbs (from plant-based foods), 10% should be protein, and the remaining 10% should be fats.
Borges, who shares his vegan diet and weight loss tips in his bestselling book, The 22-Day Revolution, said his high-carb vegan meal plan helped Beyonce lose 65 pounds several months after she gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy in 2012.
The 5-foot-7 Beyonce, who once weighed 195 pounds, lost 65 pounds using Marcos’ vegan diet plan, and said it can do the same for you.
Beyonce has since maintained her weight loss and recently made jaws drop after flaunting her unbelievable body in a nude Givenchy gown at the 2015 Met Gala (see photos above).
Borges, who has trained Beyonce since 2007, said her mostly vegan diet is responsible for her smoking-hot body. Similarly, Jennifer Lopez has credited Marco’s 22-day vegan diet for her 10-pound weight loss and age-defying beauty.
According to Borges, CEO of 22 Day Nutrition protein bars, following an 80-10-10 diet will promote effortless weight loss and dramatically improve your energy.
“With most diets, you see weight loss and then as soon as the program ends the weight slowly starts to add back up again,” said Borges. “With ‘The 22-Day Revolution, you’ll experience weight loss, improved sleep, clear skin, increased energy, improved sex drive and more.”
