ince you want your diet to be permanent, why would you try something for just one week? Plus, do you think you can stick with only salad the rest of your life?

Here is one thing that always bugs me with celebrities/entertainers. People always seem to gush and gab about how great such and such looks now, but as someone else mentioned, this is their job. If I was an actor and it was my job to be in great shape for a movie role, either my agent/the studio would pay for me to have a trainer, a nutritionist and a chef to make all my healthy meals. I could spend hours a day at the gym, and really make some huge strides in a short amount of time.

This is why the goal of trying to follow anything a celebrity does is just insane. You go to work for 8, 9, 10 or even 12 hours a day. You have to watch the kids, you have to find time to cook and prepare your meals, you have to find time to wash the dishes, do the laundry, take out the trash, vacuum the rug, etc etc. You also have to find some time in there to get to the gym and do your due diligence there. I'm not downplaying what Beyonce did or any other celebrity has done. They put in hard work and they still have to be disciplined to get into great shape, but keep it in proper perspective, it is their job, they are getting paid for a body image that they have to work on daily in order to maintain it.

My question is are you trying to lose weight quickly doing a "fad" diet OR do you really want to lose weight, keep it off for life & get healthy? That's the real question!

Think about what you're wanting to accomplish & why. Have you thought about looking on this site at the eating plans??? There are so many options for losing weight - but before you start anything have your mind set on why you're doing it, IF you can do it for life or will this be another fad along the way in your "dieting" resume!

A salad with the proper amounts of bacon, croutons, and ranch dressing will also help you gain 60 pounds.

Why did Beyonce even have 60 pounds to lose after giving birth?

Normal weight gain during pregnancy for a woman of normal weight to start is 25-30 pounds.

I heard that eating right and exercising regularly works too! And as a bonus, it will work long term. Avoid the fads, do what you know is right.

Well - If its only a salad with green - no ...
But a salad with nuts, chicken breast, avocado, egg, things like that in it... why not?

BUT: She HAS to be fit and HAS to have a "perfect" body, cause she earns her money with it. Its her JOB.
Everyone who invests so much money and time (and sweat) can do it. With a personal trainer, a chef, a housekeeper and a nanny!

Actually, I think you could have a healthy diet on salads alone. If the salads you were eating contained the proper amount of veggies, fruits, protein, fats and carbs.

However, if you are going to eat two leaves of lettuce w/ a slice of cucumber, I don't think that would be a very wise idea :)

Personally I wouldn't do it, but if you try, make sure you have lots of protein in your salad.

Uh, no.

Terrible idea.

There is no quick, easy way to lose weight. If you ate only salads, you would end up at a serious nutritional deficiency, and could hurt yourself!

Beyonce has personal trainers, chefs, and free time that most normal people don't have. When you have enough money to throw at a problem, it usually goes away.

Not to mention, that's not how she lost weight. You heard wrong. The salad she ate was for lunch, not all she ate, and included chicken avocado, tomato, and more. It was a meal, and likely not light on calories. It is heavy on veggies. Look up "Sasha Fierce" salads for recipes.

Beyonce only ate salads and worked out on the treadmill to lose over 60 pounds. Thinking about trying this diet maybe for just a week.

Good or Bad idea??
