Beyonce and Jay-Z's extreme vegan diet fueled combined 110-pound weight loss

Beyoncé and Jay-Z reportedly lost a combined 110 pounds after undergoing an "extreme" three-week vegan diet in December 2013, the Mirror reported.

Fans were stunned when a dramatically thinner Beyoncé took the stage alongside husband Jay-Z during their performance of "Drunk in Love" at the 2014 Grammy Awards.

Beyonce looked as stunning as ever, but raised eyebrows for her slimmed-down frame, causing fans to comment on Twitter that she had taken her weight loss too far.

“So nobody is gonna point out how skinny Beyoncé is now?” one fan wrote on Twitter. Another fan added: “I don’t think I like Beyoncé that skinny, but I guess that’s what she wants.”

Numerous media reports claim Beyonce and Jay-Z have lost a combined 110 pounds following their "extreme" 22-day plant-based diet.

It's unclear exactly where the 110 pounds came from, since neither Beyonce nor Jay-Z were overweight before starting their vegan-diet challenge. And if either of them had lost 50 pounds each, they would look skeletal and malnourished (and they don't).

In December 2013, Jay-Z cited a desire for a "physical and spiritual cleanse" for why he decided to cut meat and animal products out of his diet for three weeks.

Meanwhile, the 5-foot-7 Beyonce recently revealed that she weighed 195 pounds while pregnant, and lost 65 pounds shortly aterward by following a strict diet and working out several days a week combining cardio exercise with strength-training.

"I was 195 pounds when I gave birth," she said. "I lost 65 pounds. I worked crazily to get my body back." Beyonce's trainer, Marco Borges, said Beyonce typically eats one vegan meal a day to maintain her weight loss.

“She eats one vegan meal a day, because this typically gets people to eat more greens than they normally would," said Borges. Beyonce's go-to vegan snacks are 22 Days Nutrition Bars.

"Her favorite flavors are Peanut Chocolate-Chip Nirvana, Cherry Chocolate Bliss and Pineapple Chocolate-Chip Wonder," said Borges.
