Everything you wanted to know about Challenge 22

Considering joining the Challenge? Not sure if it's right for you? Here's a list of frequently asked questions to help you make up your mind. If you have any other questions, just ask!


After you fill out the registration form, a tab for a secret Facebook group will automatically open. This group will accompany you throughout the Challenge. Request to join, and once we approve you (please be patient, it can take up to a week), you can view and participate in the group. The group members are people who want to try a vegan lifestyle just like you, alongside a team of mentors which includes experienced vegans and clinical dietitians who'll be happy to answer any question you might have. You can also ask to be assigned a personal mentor who can help you with any specific difficulty you may encounter. Each day we'll post a daily challenge or a little tip in the group, to teach you something new about being vegan. This way, you can experience various aspects of the vegan lifestyle throughout the Challenge. You will also receive an email every few days with the daily challenges and additional information and tips.


Is it for me?

Our prep program is just for you! Before the Challenge begins, your Facebook group will be in the preparation phase, where you can take a little taste before you commit. Being vegan for 22 days is easier than it may sound, but if you feel that you need more time, you can always sign up for the next Challenge cycle.
