ABC News’ Daisha Riley reports:
She’s the ultimate diva with a body that’s adored and envied, but rest assured ladies, with the “Beyonce diet,” you can now be as bootylicious as Queen Bey.
In a new article from New York magazine’s “The Cut,” Rebecca Harrington chronicles her 10-day experience doing Beyonce’s dieting regimens.
Harrington lost a whopping 10 pounds in 10 days, starting with “the master cleanse,” a liquid-only diet made up of drinking lemonade made of cayenne pepper, lemons and grade B maple syrup nine times a day.
“Beyonce resuscitated that diet to lose 20 pounds for Dreamgirls,” Harrington, who followed the strict diet regimen drinking the concoction nine times a day, told ABC News.
Day four of the diet is “the cheat day.”
“Beyonce has a cheat day every week where she eats a lot of different things,” said Harrington. “She says her favorite things are pizza and wine.”
“A cheat meal here or there will give you more incentive to be able to eat well for the long haul,” personal trainer and best-selling fitness and diet author Harley Pasternak explained.
After the cleanse comes the reintroduction of real food with “the post-pregnancy diet,” where you begin the day with egg whites for breakfast, have turkey slices with capers for lunch, cucumbers with vinegar and lemon for a snack and sushi for dinner.
Although seeing great results from Beyonce’s strict dieting, Harrington notes it’s not for the faint of heart, something even the singing superstar herself admits.
“One thing I have always enjoyed about Beyoncé is that she’s very open about how hard it is to eat like she does,” Harrington wrote.
