Beyonce’s Post-Baby Body Wows Fans at Carnegie Hall

New mom Beyonce was spotted out on the town looking healthier than ever just one month after the birth of her daughter. Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z welcomed Blue Ivy into their lives on January 7, 2012.

On February 7 and 8, 2012 the power couple was attending and hosting a major benefit at New York’s Carnegie Hall. While Jay-Z was the headline performer as he performed a benefit concert for the United Way of New York City and his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation, it looks like Mrs. Jay-Z may have stolen the show.

Both nights of the show Beyonce showed up wearing skintight dresses and heels to match. Not many new moms can even manage a grocery trip in sweats one month postpartum, let alone recall to accessorize. Beyonce not only accessorized, but had flawless hair to match her impressive look.

Beyonce Minimizes Pregnancy Weight Gain with Vegan Diet and Exercise

As Beyonce, who is expecting her first child with husband Jay-Z any time now, remains committed to a mostly-vegan pregnancy diet. The actress and singer, who is also a part of Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign, has been outspoken about her past use of The Master Cleanse to prepare for the movie Dream Girls.

Contrary to celebs like Jessica Simpson, who signed a $3 million dollar contract to lose her baby weight with Weight Watchers, and Jennifer Lopez, who shared her post-pregnancy diet secrets, Beyonce hasn’t yet spoken up about her post-baby plans. In the meantime, she and Jay-Z have remained committed to eating a healthy diet to avoid excessive baby weight gain.

“I’ve been really conscious [about food],” Beyonce told 20/20. “I’ve been trying my best not to lose control.” Instead of indulging in stereotypical pregnancy junk food cravings, the couple has been eating balanced meals that include stir-fried vegetables and tofu.

Along with her healthy diet, Beyonce has remained active throughout her pregnancy, which is important for any mom who wants to avoid excessive pregnancy weight gain.

Jay-Z Supports Beyonce’s Vegan Pregnancy Diet

Beyonce is pregnant with her first baby, and she’s determined to keep her bootylicious figure. The 30-year old pop singer is due with her first baby in February, and she’s chosen to eat a mostly vegan diet to keep her weight in check. Her husband, 42-year old rapper Jay-Z, has decided to support her by following the same diet. She’s made this choice after hearing from friends who’ve counseled her to not make the same mistakes that they did during pregnancy.

In the past, the singer has been known to struggle with her weight. In 2006, she lost 20 pounds in 14 days using Master Cleanse, although it’s not a diet she’d recommend. Reportedly, she gained back all of the weight that she lost, plus extra.

Husband Jay-Z isn’t feeling any negative affects from following his wife’s dietary choice, and both have reported to have experienced an increase in energy. It’s not clear how the megastars classify a diet as “partially vegan”, but it appears that they are taking a great step towards beginning healthy choices for their growing family!

How Beyonce Keeps Her Body Bootylicious

Beyonce is known for several reasons, including her high-energy songs, fantastic acting and performing, and most definitely for her bootylicious body. The singer has always had curves and legs that inspire me to get my booty into the gym. When I am not really feeling like doing a workout, I can just blast one of her songs on my iPod and motivation instantly strikes.

So how does this gorgeous woman stay in such great shape? It takes a lot of dedication for Beyonce to look the way she does. When she is getting ready to go on tour, she spends nine hours every day working on the choreography for her shows while wearing 5-inch stilettos. She goes to the gym five times a week with her personal trainer. Like I said, the girl is definitely motivated.

If you are like me, you are wondering how she stays so motivated. Beyonce has a painting of an Oscar award at her gym so she can literally run towards one of her many goals.

“I look at it, and I’m OK, I have to stay in shape,” Beyonce said.

Now, another famous celebrity is joining Michelle in an effort to create awareness for the campaign.
