Beyoncé Knowles is reportedly frustrated she’s not losing her post-baby weight fast enough.
The stunning singer and husband Jay-Z welcomed daughter Blue Ivy into the world on January 7. Beyoncé stepped out for the first time in public on February 6 and wowed with her impressive physique. She has since being spotted on a number of occasions looking glowing and healthy.
However, sources close to the songstress says she has become frustrated with her post-pregnancy diet and fitness plan.
“Beyoncé’s complaining that she’s working her butt off in the gym, but not losing weight as fast as she’d hoped. She’s doing an hour a day, which is about as much as she can do right now,” a source told Closer magazine.
“She looks great but she’s a high achiever so wants to be back to a [UK] size 10 super-fast.”
Beyoncé is now reportedly determined to regain her famously fabulous figure in time for work commitments in the coming months. One source claims the beauty is even considering the punishing maple syrup diet that saw her lose over 14lbs. in two weeks for her role in 2006 movie Dreamgirls.
“The diet worked for her before and she tries it every now and again when she needs a quick fix. But her nutritionist has warned her not to try anything drastic until three months after giving birth,” the source said.
“It’s been hard for her. She’s telling her inner circle, ‘I guess I’m not one of these women that just ping back.’”
