Did you know that it takes 21 days to change a behavior? Psychologists have found that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. So on Day 22, it’s time to celebrate your success!

22 days you say?

That’s why 22 Days Nutrition was founded – to help you achieve that happy 22nd day of plant-based nutrition. Exercise physiologist Marco Borges was frustrated with the lack of nutrition-packed vegan options available for his clients who were interested in increasing their wellness by changing what they consumed each day. If there weren’t many tasty alternatives packed with perfect nutrition, how could he expect his clients to successfully make the change?

So Borges, the author of Power Moves: The Four Motions to Transform Your Body for Life, set about to create his own line of foods featuring a plant-based diet. The result is 22 Days Nutrition, for happily achieving a transformative breakthrough on Day 22.

What are the benefits of trying out a plant-based diet?

“I find that more often than not people come to me because they’re tired of being tired,” Borges said. “They’re tired of being sick, they’re tired of not sleeping well, they’re tired of the weight they are carrying around and they’re tired of all of the meds that they are prescribed.”

“When we founded 22 Days Nutrition, we started off with the word vegan. People said, that’s pretty cool, but vegan, man that’s tough.”

“I realized there was this negative connotation and that you had to go 100% in, that it’s all or none. The reality is, it’s not about that, 22 Days is about allowing people to define plant-based living the way that works best for them.”

Borges and his team of 22 Days Nutrition know that to make healthy changes stick, you’ve got to start small. They suggest Meatless Mondays, or even just replacing dairy with non-dairy options such as almond or coconut milks.
