BeyoncÃ© Knowles forgets fasting, eating for America this Christmas
BeyoncÃ© insisted Christmas food is to delicious to miss out on because of a diet when she blasted Hollywood’s trend for frail actresses.
Britain’s Daily Star states that BeyoncÃ© said, “People are obsessed with skinny girls at the moment. I’m going to be eating for America over Christmas to get some more junk in my trunk. So raise a glass and toast for me, people.”
For her role in “Dreamgirls” the singer/actress lost 13 lbs in less than 10 days on a liquid-only diet consisting of organic maple syrup mixed with water, lemon juice and cayenne pepper.
“OK, I lost a lot of weight for ‘Dreamgirls’. But I sure am enjoying putting it all back on.”
During filming BeyoncÃ© warned other women not to copy the extreme eating plan after being criticized by health experts.
“In ‘Dreamgirls’, my character starts at 16 and then 20 years pass. Normally they’d change your make-up or your clothes but I wanted to go the extra mile. My nutritionist suggested the only way to do that was the fast. As soon as it was over I gained the weight back. I would never recommend it to anyone unless you are doing a movie.”
