In honor of Jay Z’s 44th birthday, both Jay Z and Beyoncé are challenging themselves to do a 22-day vegan diet.
The rapper celebrated his 44th birthday on Wednesday and made the announcement on his Life and Times blog Tuesday, letting fans know that he and his wife were going to make a major change in an effort to become more spiritual.
Jay Z wrote on his blog some words of wisdom and the reason behind the 22-day cleanse: "Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way," said Jay Z.
Some of the benefits of going vegan include a high metabolism, lower cholesterol and reduced risk of diabetes, according to the 22 Days Nutrition website.
The Washington Post reported that the superstar rapper is joining a number of celebrities who have gone vegan. From Al Gore to Gwyneth Paltrow, the vegan-based trend is in.
Jay Z also promised in his blog post to keep fans updated on the process and even asked for restaurant recommendations.
