After the dismal announcement Beyoncé recently made, reminding fans that she is vegan as though it were news, it turns out the biggest and most dramatic news is actually that she’s not completely vegan. The star claims to eat meat sometimes, even though she has been promoting her 22 Days Nutrition program which is free of animal-derived ingredients. There was an extended piece of the video announcement she recently made on Good Morning America that has been unveiled: Beyoncé claims that she still eats meat but that she tries to make better choices with her diet. I don’t think we should shame Beyoncé for being a flexitarian, but let’s be honest: we’re a bit disappointed in her! I mean, what about her vegan program?
- Is this 22 Days of 'Sorta Being Vegan'?
It turns out the truth is a little fuzzy when it comes to her program. It’s supposed to be a vegan diet but Marcos Borges, the trainer who co-created the program with the star, has contradicted himself when it comes to describing the diet. He said that they used to call the diet vegan but people saw it as something too difficult to achieve, so they focused rather on allowing people to adjust the diet according to what they are comfortable with doing. The diet, however, bans all gluten, dairy and eggs. Misleading, much?
- Putting Down Veganism ’Cause it’s 'Hard'
It would have been better to promote the vegan diet 100% and show that it is not as difficult as people imagine! Rather, that it can be healthy, positive, and inspiring. Putting the diet out there as vegan and then changing it gives the diet a negative, difficult reputation. Coupled with Beyoncé constantly backtracking on her own vegan ways, the result is a big contradictory mess that smells like the star doesn't believe in her own vegan program.
