Beyonce Sticking To A 'Mostly Plant-Based' Diet, Says Trainer

To the many who said that Beyonce wouldn’t stick to a vegan diet: you’re only partially correct. Beyonce’s personal trainer, Marco Bourges, reports that the superstar is sticking to a “mostly plant-based diet,” following her 22-day vegan experiment with hubby, Jay-Z.

Bourges told E! news: ”She is all about health and wellness. She just wants to feel good. The transition [from vegan] was fairly easy because [now] she’s sticking to a mostly plant-based diet with some fish here and there.”

While the vegan community would love for Beyonce to go fully vegan (and definitely ditch the fur), let’s look at what this diet change is doing for animals.

According to the book “Veganomics” by Nick Cooney, about 31 farm animals die each year per one omnivore. In rounded figures, the breakdown is as follows: 28 chickens, 1 turkey, 1/2 pig, 1/8 beef cow, and 1 1/3 farm-raised fish. When someone eliminates dairy and eggs from their diet (which it sounds like Beyonce is doing), that’s an additional 2 chickens and 1/30 of a dairy cow saved. If Beyonce’s eating our sea friends, though, studies show that one meat-eater consumes over 225 fish and over 151 shellfish. So while her diet does involve fish, look at the other animals her meals are sparing. Beyonce’s pesce-vegan diet is still sparing more animals than the standard american diet.

One can hope, though, that Beyonce keeps her fish consumption to a minimum, and will hopefully remove them from her plate altogether.

    Better not to post starfucking nonsense such as this in your otherwise fine blog.

  • I think this is great. Many of us come to a vegan lifestyle by way of a small gateway. Sometimes it sticks. Sometimes it takes a few tries. While I certainly don’t support her cruel fashion choices, imagine what good her feeling incredible on a mostly vegan diet can lead to? Thanks for posting this.

    Hmmm, maybe there’s hope that someday she’ll ditch the fur and leather.

Of course this act is outlandish, but so is the chicken being served for dinner, even if the picture deemed worthy of sharing is a less easily sensationalized chicken salad.
