Back in 2011 we reported that Beyonce was experimenting with a vegan diet. Especially during her pregnancy in order to keep her weight down. Looks like, while she didn’t go fully vegan, the singer makes sure to include at least one vegan meal in her diet each day.

Beyonce revealed that she gained 57 pounds during her pregnancy. Adding vegan meals to her diet has helped her drop that weight fast. The singer’s trainer Marco Borges said he recommended that she eat, “one vegan meal a day because this typically gets people to eat more greens than they normally would.”

Borges told Life & Style that one of Beyonce’s snacks of choice includes edamame, a green apple or cucumbers sprinkled with vinegar, cayenne pepper and lemon.

Sounds like a yummy snack to us. And of course, no true diet is complete without a good exercise plan. Borges said on the topic, “Consistency is the key to success. I love running-spring intervals for quick cardio sessions and also…running stairs.”

Other stars who have lost weight with veganism include Robin Quivers, Ruben StuddardMike Tyson and Bill Clinton.

    I wonder if she wears her fur coat(s) when she eats her one vegan meal a day. Hardly impressive.
