Beyoncé: Diets are a struggle

Beyoncé Knowles has admitted altering the way she eats to maintain weight has always been a huge challenge for her.

The 33-year-old Irreplaceable singer has been grabbing headlines for her stunning, toned body after walking the 2015 Met Gala red carpet in a skintight Givenchy gown last month.

And in a pre-taped clip broadcast on Good Morning America Monday June 8, Beyoncé revealed eating well has always posed a challenge for her.

“I’m not naturally the thinnest. I have curves, I’m proud of my curves, and I have struggled from a young age with diets, and finding something that actually works, that keeps the weight off, has been difficult for me,” the songstress shared.

But a vegan diet has delivered tremendous results for the superstar.

She first adopted this eating approach, which abstains from the use or consumption of animal meat and products, in 2013 after taking on a 22-day plant-based food challenge with her husband Jay Z.

Beyoncé’s trainer Marco Borges introduced the couple to veganism and now the pair have partnered up to bring wholesome food to the masses. Beyoncé has launched a vegan home delivery service with Marco and she is also currently helping to promote his new book The 22-Day Revolution.

Beyoncé wrote a foreword for the tome, which instructs readers to take on 30 minutes of exercise a day and drink lots of water.

She also believes veganism does more good for her body than just maintaining weight.

“I felt like my skin was really firm. A lot tighter than when I deprived myself of food and got the weight off fast. And the weight stayed off,” Beyoncé said in the promo clip.
