I’ve got 99 problems, but going vegan ain’t one

If you were looking forward to binging this holiday season, wait till you hear what Jay-Z and Beyoncé have planned. Instead of going all out, the happy couple have decided to go on a 22 day vegan challenge – which will end at Christmas. Jay-Z took to his blog, Live and Times, to explain the reason for their radical decision. “Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you’ve found the way,” he wrote.

“On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 day 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 than I thought.”

At Hello Doctor, we’ve spoken about the dangers of fad and detox diets – so again we urge you to speak to your doctor before embarking on any major diet or detox programme.

Tell us – would you consider going on a 22 day vegan challenge during the festive season, or is the lure of Christmas lunch too strong?
