Why the 22 Day Revolution Book?
My good friend Erin recommended the 22-Day Revolution as a book where she got some great vegan recipes.
To my surprise it was an actual 22 Day BOOTCAMP Challenge. After watching “What the Health” and “Forks over Knives” I thought to myself: I need this book to keep me on track! *Beyonce recommended (Queen B says so)
“Forks over Knives” documents clinical studies showing how Plant Based eating can reduce the risk of cancer, high cholesterol and diabetes. Problems in the bedroom? First sign of things going wrong in the body is symptoms of male impotence?! Plant based eating solves that???????? SOLDDDDDDDD
Follow my YouTube channel: ChuiTake2, I’ll show you how to eat a nutrient-full plant-based weekly diet for $20. You heard me…
#3 PREVENT GLOBAL WARMING
Watch “Cowspiracy” – Animal Agriculture contributes to over 50% of Carbon Emissions? Not to mention deforestation? SOLDDDDDDDD (3 birds with 1 stone so far…….or should I say 3 Corns with 1 stone…….no, doesn’t work?…..we’ll stick with birds for now)
#4 ANIMAL CRUELTY
Nothing to see here, it’s too gruesome to even share, but anyways…SOLDDDDD!!!!
MY RESULTS AFTER 22 DAYS?!
#1 ENERGY LEVEL
Super Saiyan level. I usually get sleepy after lunch, NOT with this diet. I wake up with no grogginess. Superb so far.
#2 FITNESS RECOVERY
Amazing! I tested my recovery time between workouts because plant based athletes claim that recovery was a lot faster and guess what THEY WERE RIGHT!
Typically after a 2hour session of basketball I need to recover at least for 1 day. To put my diet to a test I played basketball 4 times a week (3 days BACK to BACK).
-Wednesday 1hr full court League play (shoutout League 42)
-Thursday 2 hrs open court
-Saturdays 1hr full court League Play (shoutout Muslim League Basketball)
*I also worked out 1-2x a week with 5 full body 3 set workouts, increasing weights each set. I did this for 3 weeks straight, NO PROBLEM
I weighed myself at the start of my 22 Day challenge I was 150lbs. At the end of 22 Days 149lbs (lost 1lb most likely because of my increased weekly cardio mentioned above). I didn’t disappear into the thin air and apparently this protein craze that everyone is stuck on had no ill effect on my body.
I spent about $400 on all organic produce (Wholefoods) for the entire month (feeds 2 people). Each recipe in the book makes multiple servings and a lot of condiments you can use well beyond the 22 Day Challenge.
If you shop at Trader Joe’s, dial down the serving sizes to 1 serving, you can pay about half of what I paid, so probably $200 for the month, even less if you want to buy non-organic produce.
Cooking time because of the prep work, cutting/washing and the need to make each meal from scratch (20-30min each meal). However this is a program that gives you DIVERSITY so that you don’t get bored immediately and quit because you’re eating the same thing over and over.
When you finish the program the cooking/prep time should drastically reduce because you will know what you like and can make bulk dishes for the week.
I highly recommend trying this 22 Day Challenge, Document your Journey, Have Fun!
I’ll post more fitness challenges in the future. Here some I completed: P90x, Air Alert, Jungle Fitness Weight Gain, 22Day Revolution, 10wk Half Marathon Bootcamp, Triathlon Bootcamp, Barry’s Bootcamp, Crossfit, Pedro’s Swim Clinic
