Beyonce took to her official website and Instagram to share vacation pics of the singer with husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy on their recent visit to Italy.
The family attended the wedding of billionaire financial consultant Noam Gottesman and Bianca Duenas.
The sweet photos show a relaxed Beyonce and Blue Ivy, who sports pigtails bedazzled by white bows, sitting quietly while someone, presumably Jay Z, snaps their portrait, according to Entertainment Tonight. Mother and daughter also rode the carousel, with both Beyonce and Blue Ivy identically bedecked in black, and took the obligatory food photo on their vacation, in which Beyonce, who recently opened a vegan meal plan delivery service, shows off a pizza and locally-made ice cream.
Beyonce announced to the world on a heavily promoted Good Morning America segment that her vegan diet really works. The singer opened up on the show about losing weight and her 22 day diet – but she’s still proud of her trademark curves, as her vacation pics with Blue Ivy shows.
“I’m not naturally the thinnest woman,” Beyonce said according to E! Online, although the pics of the singer and Blue Ivy show otherwise. “I have curves. I have struggled since a young age with diets. Finding something that actually works and keeps the weight off has been difficult for me.”
Marco Borges, the exercise physiologist who helped Beyonce and Jay Z, says “Psychologists have learned that it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. So if you adopted a healthy habit over the course of 21 days, on the 22nd day, you’ll be armed with a new habit. That is the magic to sustainability.”
Beyonce agrees, posting pics after she finished the diet. “I felt like my skin was really firm, a lot tighter than when I deprived myself of food and got the weight off fast. The weight stayed off,” even though she took to pizza and ice cream on her Italian vacation.
After succeeding with the 22 day vegan diet in 2013, Beyonce teamed with Borges to create her new meal plan delivery service.”I am so grateful that I took the challenge and credit Marco with leading by example. He is the most energetic person I know and it’s all because of his decision to live a healthy lifestyle. He came up with a great program to get people motivated to make better nutritional choices. All you have to do is try.”
While the vacation pics featuring Beyonce and Blue Ivy show a different sort of diet, it’s clear she looks great and enjoyed the time with her family.
