Vegan Celebrity – Beyonce Almost Nude At Met Ball: Her Vegan Diet and Weight Loss Secrets
Beyonce made jaws drop wearing a nude jewel-encrusted, Givenchy Haute Couture gown at the 2015 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute gala on May 4.
Beyonce, who topped her nearly nude look off with a sexy top-knot pony tail, was accompanied by husband Jay-Z. The superfit Beyonce has maintained her 65-pound weight loss for almost two years.
The 5-foot-7 Beyonce, who weighed 195 pounds while pregnant, lost 65 pounds shortly afterward by following a mostly vegan diet and doing intense workouts, Examiner reported.

Beyonce credited a mostly vegan diet for her rapid 65-pound post-baby weight loss.
Beyoncé lost more weight after following a 22-day vegan diet in December 2013. Beyonce no longer follows a 100% vegan diet, but is mostly vegan for health and weight loss reasons.
Her trainer, Marco Borges, said Beyonce’s go-to snacks are the gluten-free vegan 22 Days Nutrition Bars.
“Her favorite flavors are Peanut Chocolate-Chip Nirvana, Cherry Chocolate Bliss and Pineapple Chocolate-Chip Wonder,” said Borges, author of The 22-Day Revolution.
The weight loss and health effects of a vegan diet are no surprise to Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center.
“A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature — predominantly plants — is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention,” said Dr. Katz, author of Disease-Proof.
Dr. Neal Barnard agrees. “Studies suggest that free radicals [toxic molecules that form in the body] contribute to aging,” said Barnard, author of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart. “A vegan diet, rich in fruits and vegetables, is full of antioxidants which help protect the body from damage by free radicals.”
