Beyonce says breast feeding helped her lose baby weight

Beyonce said she gained 50 pounds during her pregnancy and lost it quickly by breast feeding

She tells People Magazine,
'I lost most of my weight from breast-feeding and I encourage women to do it; it's just so good for the baby and good for yourself.
'I counted calories. I worked out maybe three to four times a week. I did a lot walking in the beginning and now I'm running. But I had to work my way up. I couldn't just go right from being pregnant to running.'

That my girl. And what she is saying is very true. I lost almost 10kg after breastfeeding my baby and I aint no Beyonce and I walk every Monday so it is not so hard to lose the baby fat one kain. Baby is one now and I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight.

Then most African pregnant women would be slim in that case. She got slim through extra diets and instructors. That's IF she actually go pregnant

She's right breastfeeding helps with weight loss. Also babies who are breastfed are healthier throughout their life than those who are fed formula.

How is this news? Its common knowledge that breast-feeding helps in weight loss. *eyes rolling*

Nigerian women, read this and learn. Our women should cram this script. Women generally gravitate to laziness soon after dropping babies. Before long she don become michelin woman with heavy aka christian mother.

Then when the man starts admiring lepacious babes outside they start complaining. Beyoncy knows that there is competition out there and no lady will be snatching Jay Z from her no, not when she's still shapely. Hopefully.

You see breast sucking helps lose weight in addition to reduce the risk of cancer,so ladies dont be fronting when a guy asks to suck your breast,he is doing it for your health.

Lolzz @ hot lie straight from hell!

Anonymous said...

That's so not true... If u read the people's magazine,she said after 8weeks of breast feeding the baby,she lost that much weight which is a big lie because Nigerian women don't stop at 8weeks, we stop when the baby is almost a year or even a year,so she shud go and sit down... I still don't believe she gave birth to that baby,and if she did,she must have worked out a lot with dieting to go wit it.. They deliver food supplement if u wanna loose that kinda weight like janet jackson,jenifer hudson and even kim kardashian.. So she shud keep quiet abeg

miama blues said...

to the person saying its not true and comparing to nig women. first of all, womens bodies are not all the same, different things works for different people.
secondly, nig women eat too many darned carbonhydrate, before, during and after being preggas, ofcos the fat aint going no where. eat healthy, live healthy and excersise and you'd be looking like beyonce in no time ;)

yes I said it said...

Nigger please, is it size? Then when should the likes or halle berry, sandra bullock, christie brinkly, demi moore and othe skinny beautiful women who have been cheated on my their husbands. Abeg free matter

Anonymous said...

i find it odd that beyonce who's been so secretive in the past now sees the need to address such trivial issues as surrogacy or not.

how bout addressing the illuminati issues which should be paramount being that it borders on your faith.

trust me, all the fist about beyonce stems from this illuminati thing, clear that and i personally will go back to loving you. for now, she remains a baphomet witch, possessed amd a destroyer!!!

blak kofee

I guess it's true because my baby is 2months old and I've lost all the weight already. The problem with us African women is that we deceive ourselves by eating for two and become fat instead of just eating normally.

Perfection said...

@anonymous8.17, does she eat the same food that u eat, common sense would tell us that she takes a proper diet. U can't eat pounded yam, amala , 10 eggs n expect breast feeding to help u loose that weight. Nigerian women should learn to eat what u need to , there's something called discipline .

Not A big Beyonce fan but i will say this, her weight loss is entirely possible whether its from breast feeding or not is debatable. if you guys think back u'd remember an old article of Cindy Crawford (the exSuper model) who was back to runway size after just 6 weeks. i belive their trainers know what to do to their bodies

Anonymous said...

Na wa ooooo, see beef! U people are really funny u sit there and abuse Beyonce and call her all sorts, idiot and all. Some even complained that she covers the baby- the baby that we have seen pictures of her many times! she lost wait too fast...lol. Na wa o haba a colleague of mine that has a set of twins is as slim as anything even 1month after delivery .U never read stories from other sources and depend on news from Linda *smh*
Beyonce didn't use a surrogate because I live in the states and I know. If she did she will say it wont kill her to. I am not supporting her because I like her but I like hard working African women and she is one and no one can take that away from her. Ask anyone in the state and they can attest to that. And all your insults and tongue-lashing cannot reduce a dime or dollar from her bank account because she worked for it. Right now she is the richest female artiste in the world, she doesn't have records of scandals, she is disciplined and very focused all she pays attention is her job and family. Or has any of you heard of her string of boyfriends, disobeying the law, using drugs etc. NO I GUESS. so lets celebrate people when they are doing well especially an artiste of such level which is rare to come by this days. she deserves a tribute because her character and attitude to her work is worthy of emulation instead of us saying evil things about her. Remember when u celebrate the good in people they will celebrate yours as well, there is no one without there weaknesses! Beyonce is a strong black woman and is been a long time we have seen a black woman maintain that status in a long while.

I don't know why America celebrity think they can tell us African women what breast feeding does to a baby's health. We should be the one telling them to get their ars up and breast feed. First of all, u eat double in order to breast feed, a lot of women have different systems, some have great metabolism some don't , and because u are eating double u might lose and gain at the same time. Cos u eating and drinking a lot of fluids to produce what u are giving ur baby, that's why it's good to eat healthy , fruits and vegetables and a lot of protien and fiber.e.g, Beans, fish, meat prefer chicken to too much red meat, but here in African our foods are 100% organic so everything is fresh out of the farm yet, u struggle with weight cos it functuate . Some stupid ones are saying take a que from Bee, what can she tell me a mother of four? I am still a size 6 naturally ,not artificial , better respect that. I don't even know why I am commenting on this BS, girl go sit down, that's if u have true lily experience motherhood , u wouldn't be struggling to convince people cos real women don't talk too much . Linda love, post my comment.

if some one gained 50lbs they don't need to tell you cos even a blind man will see it, Bey has always been a big girl which will mean that pregnacy weight gain will be even more obvious, but that's not the case here, so her saying she lost over 40lbs in less than 3 months is a big FAT lie.

@ anon 1.11., you're so funny. Who she dey deceive sef? isnt it obvious that this woman wasn't pregnant. She should just stop talking and the rumors will just fade away. ARRGH!!!!!!

You don't even have to go far, I lost my weight within two weeks of having my daughter but it was not only due to breast feeding. I was depressed at the same time so i didn't really eat much. So it is possible.

~Sirius~ said...

This where Nigerian women FAIL. The double their meal portions all in the name of breastfeeding. EPIC FAIL. If they could only read.
During pregnancy your body stores the fat you need for breast feeding.

I lost about 15kg in 2 months by breastfeeding exclusively and reducing my calorie in take. At 5 weeks post natal I hit the gym.

I had informed all mothers (mine and in-law) that I was not aiming to remain Fiona from Shrek.

I look nothing like the 95kg woman I was 8 months ago. 76 and still on it, you wouldn't, know I have had a child.

GOD BLESS YOU!!! Tell this bitter, confused, interferring humans, if she used a surrogate to have her baby, so what?? Her husband is ok wit it so hu d fuck r u to talk?? Y'all women hittin on her here eat d world yle breastfeeding in d name of 'eatin for 2' YET u dnt eat healthy,pounded yam nd junk, day in day out, and u wana lose weight in hw many mnths, U will remain fat!

U pple can be soooo annoying atimes.

Breastfeeding is great...but how do you count calories and breastfeed at the same time. Don't you need to eat well so you can breastfeed, if you don't eat well the milk will just dry up, no be so? #ABitConfused

Breast feeding my ass! How long did she breast feed for?? Yea breastfeeding does help with weight loss. My son stopped breastfeeding at 8months and by then,I had lost a lot of weight but she can't have lost all that weight due to breastfeeding in just a month! Hate d way these celebs pretend tht its soo easy to loose baby weight cos dey have all kinds of help. In d real world,mothers struggle with loosing that weight.I'm back to my previous size 16 but I'm still not happy with me. Everything depends on your body type. Some loose d weight without stress, others don't loose it at all cos dey r too lazy, while 4 others it take a really long time. So fuck all these celebs who give birth den 2/3weeks later, they come out looking like they didn't and make other mothers out there feel bad about themselves. If we had all d money, personal trainers, chefs and all that we would be looking like them too

@ 76kg you don't look like someone who had a child??????????? Abeg, what were u b4 u had d baby? 80kg? I don't know how tall u r, but unless u r over 6ft, daz hardly ur ideal weight. So, dear, u were overweight already so u r hardly in the position to lecture anyone on their weight, much pple who r likely slimmer than you.


I was 71 b4 pregnancy. Tried really hard to stick to the +12kg gain d doctors warned me abt. After two months when I returned to work, I could squeeze into my size 10 jeans. I gained some weight, went up to 74kg and stayed there unhappily for almost one year. Now, am 67kg (aiming for 61). 6 more kg to lose, and I can't even dare boast of looking like I haven't had a baby. Not when chicks I know r dropping d pregnancy in one month of hving a baby and remaining slim.


Some pple lose weight fast. Some take a lot longer.

Actually yes I lost everything I put on during my pregnancy by the time I went back for my 6weeks visit to the Doctor. I had a C-section so I obviously could not work out. All I did was breast feed my baby exclusively. It actually works!

Ignorance is indeed a disease... Because your able to eat normally during pregnancy doesn't make u special. Our bodies are diff so because something works for you doesn't mean ur doing anything special. I have a huge appetite when pregnant and gain weight! After delivery, appetite is normal so I go back to pre baby weight usually in 6months! So that you go back in doesn't score u any brownie points! And for ur info Mrs all knowing, its not only African women that struggle with baby weight!

Now, am not saying Bey is lying (exaggerating? Definitely!) but all her sudden talk-talk is wot I don't get? And how she is everywhere. There's probably been more sightings of her in dis short period than all her life! Madam, siddon for house na. I tire o
