Beyonce opens up in the new issue of Shape magazine and reveals how she lost 57 pounds after the birth of her first child, Blue Ivy. Also, fun fact: Beyonce's favorite food is pizza! Our favorite food is pizza, too! We must be soul sisters.
"Breast-feeding took care of the first 30 pounds," Beyonce said. "I was amazed at how the weight just fell off me. But I had to work very hard to lose the last 25 because I'd scheduled a show just three months after I gave birth. Let me tell you, I'll never do that again!"
But how did Beyonce do it? Shape reveals that Beyonce dropped the last 25 pounds on a low-calorie diet and regular dance workouts. She says that she always thinks of her body in her Crazy in Love video as her ideal weight—note: she shot the video when she was 20-years-old. Behold:
"Some people prefer the gym, but when I have to put on workout clothes and run on a treadmill, I get bored," Beyonce said. "The rehearsals leading up to a tour always get me in shape, so I never have to feel like 'Oh no, I have to get up and go to the gym!'
"Believe me, I'm not a naturally thin person," she said. "I have to work for it."
And, as for how she controls her pizza cravings? She gets to eat it once a week—at a cheat meal on Sundays.
