Beyonce’s 60-pound weight loss secret
Addressing fans on Saturday night during her concert at Revel Beach’s Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, Beyonce Knowles took a moment to celebrate her new look.
“Y’all have no idea how hard I worked!” the Associated Press quotes the 30-year-old new mom as saying. “I had to lose 60 pounds. They had me on that treadmill. I ate lettuce!”
Since giving birth in January to Blue Ivy, Knowles has been adamant about regaining her pre-pregnancy figure; something many celebrities are pressured by the media into achieving right away. But for those new moms down on themselves for not getting similar results, remember this: Beyonce is crazy rich, with crazy support to make something like this possible.
According to HollywoodLife.com, the singer moved her personal trainer into her home to assist her with twice-a-day, two-hour workouts. “Beyonce and Marco are up at 5 a.m. for a two-hour workout, and they do it again at 5 p.m.,” says the source. “They do a mix of cardio, Pilates, plyometrics, yoga and, of course, dance.”
Her diet? A mix of “protein shakes, egg-white omelets, pineapple chunks and lots of ice-cold water.” And apparently lettuce, too.
Want to achieve similar results over a more sane period of time? A diet rich in vegetables and fruit, combined with regular physical exercise (once possible) is key.
