How Beyonce Knowles Got So Skinny

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am — Filed under:

Beyonce Knowles from the cover of Fashion RocksMy SELF magazine came with a supplement this month called Fashion Rocks. I pulled it out and walked to the recycle bin (those supplement things are ALL advertisment, no point reading it), but the girl on the cover caught my eye. The waif standing next to Jamie Foxx was Beyonce Knowles.

Beyonce was the girl who was happy to have “a little junk in her trunk.” She was never fat and her bottom was the envy of women all across the nation. Now, she’s just another stick with arms so skinny they look like teenaged boy arms.

How did she do it?

Apparently, she is touting the Lemon Juice and Maple Syrup Diet.

What few people are quoting is the side effect of a fast such as this. Beyonce lost the weight for a movie role. Here is her account of her eating after the movie was finished:

“At the wrap party the day after filming they had these cupcakes and I ate about twelve.”

“After that I ate waffles, fried chicken, cheeseburgers, french fries, everything I could find.”

“That was the best time of my life. I’ve gained twelve pounds.”

Don’t be fooled by these fad diets. They do make you lose weight because of the calorie deficit, but the risk of bingeing afterward is so great that it’s not worth it. Choose a healthy diet with a moderate calorie deficit and you will lose the weight AND keep it off.

    I think it’s harder for celebrities than we realize with weight issues. Yes they can afford trainers and fancy food but they also have more access to harmful diets and more pressure to stay thin. They are also more prone to be told their fat when they are not. If I went on that diet I’d be right there with Beyonce eating those cupcakes, and waffles. We deprive ourself into binges.

    You also have to consider the long-term impact on her health. Yo-yo dieting is especially stressful on the heart muscle…plus…she’s probably also losing lean muscle tissue each time she diets like this.

    Syrup and lemon juice…disgusting!

    Its pretty interesting to know that such diet regimen could help out, but apparently in quite disturbing somehow. This maple syrup diet could just give a temporary result, and could put your health in danger. A certain diet that is not accompanied by a workout regimen will not deliver a long term effect on the body. I could consider this a very drastic move in dieting way. According to researchers it is better, and considered healthy when you do your diet gradually. By doing so it you could avoid the YO-YO diet, which you lose weight fast, and gain the weight back that could result in a heavier you!

    i think the issue of weight is overated period we as a society have to learn that we are not all born a size 2and we as men and woman have too be confident in who we are now if there are things unhealthy about your weight then you should take in to consideration a diet too better your health.diets do not better who you are as a person

    Hey, I think that beyonce has a lot of courage and she is very versitile and she is really dedicated to her craft. Especially if she is willing to drop so much weight to play a role but I have to give her her props because she was fantastic as Deena Jones and she will probably win a grammy or a oscar because she really got into character

    what alot of people are tending to forget is that she lost all the weight to dedicatedly portray deena jones in dreamgirls. it’s not like she thought she was fat and went on a fast to simple lose weight. and she also gained most of it back, and in an interview with seventeen she said that she actually felt better when she had hips and a booty, because that is what is beautiful in her culture (african american). i couldnt admire a person more and i throughly support her AND her decisions regarding her weight. Bravo!

    I am even more confused! I was reading the comments on the “HYPE” post until they were shut down. I started the Master Clense on Monday. I didn’t feel bad thus far (until I read this, LOL). All I wanted to do is drop a few pounds, clense my insides (I thought they needed clensing), and start a normal diet. I was at the book store last night and there seemed to be a lot of information on “EATING RAW” or “QUICK EXIT FOODS”. More of an emphasis on Fruits/Veggies, and less on meats and processed foods. hmmmm, so confusing. I am 5’8″, weigh 215 pounds. A good weight for me is about 185-190. I know excercise is key, I need to get more active. ANY SUGGESTIONS??? Again, I am on my third day of the “MASTER CLENSE” OY!
