Viewpoint: Examining Beyoncé’s Weight Loss Journey to Coachella

The queen used her platform to inspire other new moms.

There has been growing noise over Beyoncé and her video on losing weight to get in shape for her Coachella performance after giving birth to twins.

She explained, “I was a woman that felt like my body was not mine” and felt this was her chance to get back to her prime. Some wondered why she was receiving praise for an act than many women endure, while others who stan Beyoncé and the hive contend that is it very impactful to have a role model/celebrity use their platform to show other new moms that they can do whatever they set their minds to. 

It is commonly known that women’s bodies are created to bear children and the weight gain is meant to keep the children safe and supported. Women bodies have physiologically slower metabolism than men, making it more difficult to burn fat, yet it is easier to store it. 

Beyoncé shedding light on her fight for her own body gives women a voice and shows the world that it’s not easy, but can be done.

The video showed her fans the real struggles with weight loss and show them that she faces these issues just like anybody else. She shows herself getting on the scale explaining how the number is “every woman’s nightmare” and shows her weighing in at 175 lbs.

She’s ready and determined to get fit for her performance, although there is a ways to go. Beyonce went on a 22 day nutrition program twice (44 days total) in order to get to where she wanted to be. She went completely plant-based for those 44 days, did constant workouts, while still being on top of rehearsals. 

Her trainer explains the benefits of plant-based food and making moves towards healthier choices: “To live the best versions of ourselves.”

This video showed clips from her Coachella Netflix performance as she fit into her past costumes and explaining how big of a deal it is for her to be able to do that.

Beyoncé exemplifies utilizing your platform to shed light on personal insecurities, while fighting through them to empower yourself and others.
