Beyoncé Before and After the Master Cleanse
Beyonce told fans on the Ellen Degeneres Show and Oprah that she wanted to make a major change, not just changing costume or make up to show the difference between her character at 36 years of age and 16 for the movie, Dreamgirls, released in December 2006.
“Normally they’d just change your makeup or your clothes but I wanted to go the extra mile,” Beyonce told China Daily. “Back in the sixties, models like Twiggy were popular and I knew Deena would have been thin then, so even though I love eating, it was necessary to lose weight really fast because we shot Deena at 36 and then Deena at 16 two weeks later.”
Unfortunately, Beyonce didn’t read the book and no one told her that it was a modified juice fast that detoxified the body and thus made her lose weight and made her skin glow. As a result, she ate some vegetables during the cleanse that made her hungry most of the time. (People who read the book and follow the directions normally feel no hunger after the first three days. Cravings, yes; hunger, no.)
Even with her cheating, you can see what a dramatic difference it made in only 14 days. This picture is definitely worth 1000 words!
