Amidst all of Beyoncé Knowles’s “Queen Bee” accomplishments, one of her iconic moments as a young artist was her roll in the American romantic musical drama film, Dreamgirls. Adapted from the Broadway musical of the same name, there were specific plot summaries that needed to be followed. One of which, was for Beyoncé to fit the slimmer look of Deena Jones (the character Beyoncé played) at the age of 16. “Normally they’d change your make-up or your clothes but I wanted to go the extra mile,” Beyoncé is quoted expressing her endeavors, “Even though I really love eating, it was necessary to lose weight really fast because we shot Deena at 16 and Deena at 36 two weeks apart.”
So, Beyoncé’s loss of 20 pounds in two weeks was successful as per following the “Master Cleanse Diet”, and here is what it entails: it is basically fasting where you eat no solid foods and you have to drink between 6 and 12 glasses of water mixed with lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper for 10-to-40 days. Beyoncé did exactly this on the master cleanse diet to lose 20 pounds in exactly 14 days. She even cheated on the diet by eating fish, vegetables, and protein drinks… and it still worked!
The master cleanse diet was originally designed for cleaning and detoxification of the body. The rapid weight loss was not its primary goal but came as a collateral positive side effect.
This was not a fun diet for Beyoncé as she claims to have been very cranky while on the diet. There are others who have endured the same diet, for example, Robin Quivers, who went from 218 pounds to 145 pounds (approx. 98 kg to 65 kg). But is this type of diet worth it? That’s for you to decide.
This $80 million film production served as an acting debut for several singers, a record-breaking piece featuring an all African American starring cast, and an award-winning movie for Best Motion Picture at the Golden Globes and Oscars. It was perhaps definitely a project worth Beyoncé’s suffering to fit the role.
