The 30-year-old singer, who gave birth to baby Blue Ivy in January, said she did not put herself on a strict regime of weight loss after having her first child but did make sure to do some basic exercise to shift the extra pounds, reported Showbiz spy online.
"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," she said. Beyonce also confessed she did go through a short beauty regime prior to giving birth to Blue Ivy. "I did have a fresh eyebrow wax. I got my nails done, I got my feed done, had my hair done and I had my little lip gloss."
