Beyonce credits a mostly plant-based diet and rigorous cardio workouts for her stunning recent weight loss, said her trainer.
Beyonce made headlines after undergoing a 22-day vegan diet in December 2013 with her husband, Jay-Z. The couple emerged from their vegan-diet challenge looking noticeably slimmer.
Beyoncé, who's now a tiny size two, showed off her dramatic weight loss at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Borges, who has trained Beyoncé since 2007, said the singer now follows a mostly vegan diet.
"She's sticking to a mostly plant-based diet with some fish here and there," said Borges, CEO of 22 Days Nutrition, a maker of vegan, organic, gluten-free protein bars.
The 5-foot-7 Beyonce who weighed 195 pounds while pregnant, lost 65 pounds shortly afterward by following a strict diet and working out several days a week. She has since lost more weight. Borges said Beyonce's go-to snacks are 22 Days Nutrition Bars.
Marco said Beyoncé is a workout fanatic who usually exercises with Jay-Z, doing a combination of cardio exercise, body-weight squats, lunges, sprint intervals and plyometric exercises.
"They'll work out together whenever possible," said Borges, author of The 22 Day Revolution. "She'll be running and he'll be on a bike, or she'll be jumping rope and he'll be running."
