Singer Beyonce Knowles lost 57 pounds just six months after giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012, and has kept it off by following a partially vegan diet.

"[Beyonce eats] one vegan meal a day because this typically gets people to eat more greens than they normally would," her trainer, Marco Borges, told Life & Style, "If you have to snack, don't sacrifice nutrition."

Instead of grabbing chips or candy, Beyonce snacks on edamame, a green apple, or cucumbers sprinkled with vinegar, cayenne pepper and lemon. When the Grammy winner wants to shed weight fast, she substitutes a protein shake for lunch instead of having a full meal.

Knowles, who wowed fans with her super-fit physique during her Super Bowl half-time performance, wore multiple layers of pantyhose to achieve her sleek look.

"Under the fishnets, she wore four to six pairs of pantyhose to pull her all in," says a source. "She is very aware of her body. She knows what looks right and what doesn't."

In addition to a healthy, portion-controlled diet, Beyonce also works out almost daily to maintain her sexy bikini body.

"Consistency is the key to success," says her trainer. "I love running sprint intervals for quick cardio sessions and running stairs."


I know people are going to get on my ass for this (because it happens in every vegan post..)
But, I'm vegetarian and I try to eat the least amount of dairy possible, and I don't find it very expensive. I know every city is different, and I live in a small Canadian city, we don't have any specialty veg stores, so I shop at the regular grocery store. I eat mostly lentils, chickpeas and quinoa which aren't that expensive if you buy big bags.
I know people always say but vegetables are soo expensive, but personally I'm not eating that many more veggies/fruits now than I was when I did eat meat. You still need the same amount as you did before, and extra if you can afford it. idk idk.

meat and dairy is a lot cheaper in the states than in canada (as much as 2-3x more expensive here sometimes). ia it is not expensive to eat veg here, I get by on about $40 a week and I eat a lot, like 1800 cals a day.
