Dear Diet Buddy,
Isn't it painful to watch celebrity dropped serious pounds so quick and easy? Beyonce lost 20 pounds in 10 days for her role in Dreamgirls. She gained 25 kilos during pregnancy. But as predicted by every one, Beyonce dropped 27 kg within 4 months after giving birth. You might argue, celebrities have wider resources to help them lose weight fast. Million pounds, personal trainer, nutritionist, cosmetic surgeon, you name it. That maybe true, but what all the money in the world can't buy are self-discipline and motivation. Perhaps that what makes the difference between a celebrity and the typical person.
Shape uncover Beyonce's pregnancy weight-loss secrets. Worth reading, you may want to steal some of her weight loss tips.
How Beyonce lost her pregnancy weight.
"Breast-feeding took care of the first 14 kilos. I was amazed at how the weight just fell off of me. But I had to work very hard to lose the last 11 because I'd schedule a show just 3 months after I gave birth."
Beyonce's diet plan.
"80% of my weight loss from cutting back on food. I ate a very low calorie diet. I stayed away from red meat and ate a lot of fish, replaced pasta and rice with quinoa, and drink only water."
Beyonce's exercise routine.
"Not at all (when asked on being a gym addict). The key to staying motivated is to find a form of exercise you enjoy, and for me it's dance. I lose a lot of weight and tone up much more because I'm truly dedicated to it."
"I was at my ideal weight while working on my 'Crazy in Love' video. I was 20 years old! Whenever I wan to get into amazing shape, that's the body size I aim for. But believe me, I'm not a naturally thin person. I have to work for it."
Did she still counting calories?
"I'm not. I just try to keep my diet balanced. I always have breakfast - say, scrambled eggs whites, a vegetable smoothies, or whole grain cereal with low-fat milk. For lunch and dinner I eat lot of fish and vegetables. And throughout the day I try to stay hydrated."
Beyonce's cheat days.
"Even when I'm being strict, though, I always treat myself to one meal on Sundays when I can have whatever I want. Usually it's pizza, which is my favorite indulgence."
