How Beyonce Lost 20 Pounds in Under 2 Weeks

beyonce weight loss

Beyonce used a very unusual diet called the Master cleanse diet (also called the maple syrup or Lemon juice diet) to shed 20 pounds quickly.

Beyonce had to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks so she could look more like the slimmer Deena Jones at the age of 16 (Deena Jones is a character Beyonce played in the dreamgirls movie)

"Normally they'd change your make-up or your clothes but I wanted to go the extra mile," Beyonce is quoted as telling China Daily. "Back in the sixties, models like Twiggy were popular and I knew Deena would have been thin then, so even though I really love eating, it was necessary to lose weight really fast because we shot Deena at 16 and Deena at 36 two weeks apart."

The Master Cleanse Diet is basically a fasting diet where you eat no solid foods and you have to drink 6-to-12 glasses of water mixed with lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for 10-to-40 days and…

That's what Beyonce did on the master cleanse diet to lose 20 pounds in 14 days and according to some reports… Beyonce cheated on the diet by eating fish, vegetables, and protein drinks… "I had to lose it really fast, so I fasted and only drank liquids and [had] fish and protein shakes and vegetables" but…

Beyonce quickly gained back all the weight she lost on the Master Cleanse diet

Beyonce admitted she was very cranky while on the diet…

beyonce master cleanse"As soon as it was over, I gained the weight back - I ate everything when it was over… the second I looked at a donut, it came back! I gained back all the weight, even the weight I didn't want to come back!"

Hi Adrian,

I desperately need to lose weight for my health. I'm 370lbs and I would like to be at least 20lbs lighter by June for a friend's wedding. I feel like losing the first 10-20lbs will motivate me to keep going with losing the 100+lbs I have to lose.

Please help!

Hi Adrian, I really like your videos. I will start with your 10 sec run 10 sec rest on a treadmill video. I like the fact that you were there to work out and count down with me. That was pretty awesome! I'm petite, only 4'11" and I weigh 117.5 lbs. I want to be at 100 to 105 lbs by 12/24/2015. Which diet and exercise would you recommend for me?

Now depending on your body you could try to go vegan. You could either not lose weight at all, lose weight quickly or possibly gain weight. That is why this I is risky so you might want to do some research on it. For quick weight lose try doing raw vegan (look it up) along with cardio as much as possible as well as blogilotes (it's a YouTube workout channel I love!) and remember drink as much water as possible don't eat anything past 8:30 pm

I hope this helped and good luck!

Hello, I am a young housewife and so far i have gained 80 pounds in over the course of two years. At my smallest i weighted 175 pounds(which was when me and my husband got engaged) and was actually happy with that amount. Now however i am 255 pounds, at my heaviest I've been 220 but never anything over that. It's really effecting my day to day activities and has me so depressed that I'm making my husband upset. I was wondering if you could help me out because this has really become a huge problem. I'm 255 pounds, I'm 5'6, and I'm 21. Thanks for your time.
