It may be hard to believe, but even superstar Beyoncé isn’t always secure in her appearance.

In a new interview in Elle magazine, Knowles-Carter discussed her body evolution and how motherhood and getting older has helped her come to terms with her changing body.

After going through a difficult pregnancy with her twins Rumi and Sir, Knowles-Carter said she used 2019 as a year to focus on self-care and her own health. To do this, she said she focuses on a healthy diet and does acupuncture, meditation, and breathing exercises.

It paid off.

“If someone told me 15 years ago that my body would go through so many changes and fluctuations, and that I would feel more womanly and secure with my curves, I would not have believed them,” the “Formation” singer said.

Knowles-Carter also said she recently learned how to find self-worth beyond her physical appearance and discussed how rewarding that experience has been.

She said she now knows she’s “more than enough no matter what stage I’m at in life. Giving zero f—-s is the most liberating place to be.”

Beyonce has been open about her complicated pregnancy with twins.

This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has opened up about her difficult pregnancy

The Netflix documentary “Homecoming” that details Knowles-Carter’s 2018 Coachella performance also offered a look into the the complications the songstress faced because she had toxemia (also known as preeclampsia), a pregnancy complication characterized by high blood pressure, weight gain, and protein in the urine.

Beyoncé also detailed her complicated pregnancy in a personal essay in the September 2018 issue of Vogue.

In the essay, the mom of three wrote she was “swollen from toxemia and had been on bed rest for over a month” during the time. Ultimately, the condition caused her to have an emergency C-section to deliver the twins. Following the birth, she and the twins spent weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit.

“I was in survival mode and did not grasp it all until months later,” Beyoncé wrote.

  • The Golden Globes nominations were announced on Monday.
  • HBO’s critically acclaimed new series, “Watchmen,” was completely shut out.
  • “The Good Place,” and other broadcast network shows, also didn’t land a single nomination.
  • Movies directed by women were snubbed from major categories like picture and director, including “Little Women” and “Hustlers.”
  • Robert De Niro was overlooked for his exceptional work in Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman,” despite Netflix otherwise dominating.

HBO picked up up 15 Golden Globes nominations on Monday, but its best show of the year – and arguably the best TV series of the year, period – didn’t land a single nomination.

“Watchmen,” the new series based on the iconic graphic novel of the same name from “Lost” cocreator Damon Lindelof, was completely shut out in favor of less acclaimed shows like Apple’s new drama, “The Morning Show,” and the lackluster second season of “Big Little Lies.”

“Watchmen” is HBO’s most popular new series of the year with an average of 7.1 million viewers over its first seven episodes as of Thursday. It’s also a critical hit, with a 96% Rotten Tomatoes critic score.

“Watchmen” wasn’t the only great TV series snubbed by the Globes this year. HBO’s final season of “Veep” was shut out, as was NBC’s superb comedy “The Good Place.” In fact, not a single broadcast network series was nominated.

On the film side, no women were nominated in the director category, despite acclaimed movies from Greta Gerwig (“Little Women”), Lorene Scafaria (“Hustlers”), and more.

Below are eight major snubs from this year’s Golden Globes nominations:


HBO’s “Watchmen” didn’t receive a single nomination.

HBO

“Watchmen” is considered by many the best TV show of 2019, but not if you ask the Golden Globes.

Despite steady ratings and critical acclaim, and being the kind of buzzy new show the Globes usually recognizes, “Watchmen” was completely shut out. Not even Regina King, who’s been nominated three times and won once, was nominated for best actress.


“The Good Place” wasn’t nominated for best comedy, as broadcast shows were completely shut out of the TV categories.

NBC

The first half of “The Good Place’s” final season recently wrapped up, but it wasn’t good enough to land any nominations in the eyes of Globes voters.

It’s representative of the Globes’ overall spurning of broadcast television, which was shut out entirely. Broadcast shows have been slowly disappearing from the Emmys and now they are nowhere to be seen at the Globes.


“Veep” was excluded from best comedy.

HBO

“Veep” was only nominated twice for best comedy at the Globes in its seven seasons, so it’s not surprising to see it missing here yet again. But that doesn’t make it any less of a snub for a show that was one of, if not the, best comedies on television and concluded this year.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus was also snubbed for best comedy actress, despite being nominated five prior times (and, tragically, never winning).


“When They See Us” was snubbed for best limited series.

Netflix

“When They See Us” was an Emmys darling earlier this year with over a dozen nominations and two wins.

That didn’t propel Ava DuVernay’s Netflix limited series to Golden Globes recognition, though. It was completely shut out.


Women were shut out from the best director category.

Here are some critically acclaimed movies directed by women released this year that failed to gain picture, director, or screenplay nominations from the Globes:

  • Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women”
  • Alma Har’el’s “Honey Boy”
  • Marielle Heller’s “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”
  • Melina Matsoukas “Queen and Slim”
  • Lorene Scafaria’s “Hustlers”
  • Lulu Wang’s “The Farewell”

Several of these movies, including “The Farewell” and “Little Women,” received nominations in other categories.


Robert De Niro didn’t land a best actor nomination for “The Irishman.”

De Niro gives his best performance in years in his long-awaited reunion with director Martin Scorsese in Netflix’s “The Irishman,” yet the Globes failed to recognize him in the best actor race despite Netflix otherwise dominating the nominations. It looks like his slot was taken by Christian Bale for his work in “Ford v Ferrari.”


Lupita Nyong’o was overlooked for “Us.”

Universal

Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” follow up, “Us,” was released way back in March, but Nyong’o gives an exceptional dual performance in the horror thriller. She’s been noticed by other awards ceremonies this year, including the Critics Choice Awards, which nominated her for best actress.


“Booksmart” was left out of best comedy.

“Booksmart” made headlines earlier this year when it disappointed at the box office in its wide release. But it gained raves from critics and Beanie Feldstein was still nominated for best actress in a comedy. It should have picked up a best comedy nomination.

The 2020 Golden Globes nominations were just revealed, and Jennifer Aniston earned a nod for her role on Apple TV Plus’ “The Morning Show.”

Aniston’s portrayal of Alex Levy earned her a nomination for best performance by an actress in a drama TV series at the upcoming Golden Globes. She’s up against “Morning Show” costar Reese Witherspoon, “The Crown’s” Olivia Coleman, “Killing Eve’s” Jodie Comer, and “Big Little Lies'” Nicole Kidman.

“The Morning Show” dropped on Apple’s new streaming service in November 2019 and got renewed for a second season ahead of its release.

On the drama series, Aniston stars as a New York-based news anchor who has spent years in the media industry. Alex finds herself trying to stand her ground in a male-dominated office as coanchor Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) gets accused of sexual misconduct and is replaced by a younger reporter from West Virginia, Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon).

Aniston’s latest Golden Globes nomination is her first for a TV show since getting recognized for her role as Rachel Green on NBC’s “Friends” 16 years ago. In 2003, the actress beat “Malcolm in the Middle’s” Jane Kaczmarek, “Will & Grace’s” Debra Messing, “Sex and the City’s” Sarah Jessica Parker, and “Life With Bonnie’s” Bonnie Hunt to win the coveted trophy for best performance by an actress in a musical or comedy television series.

The previous year, Aniston earned a nomination for best performance by an actress in a supporting role in a series, miniseries, or motion picture made for TV for her part on “Friends.”

“Friends” aired on NBC for 10 seasons between 1994 and 2004. In the years since the show ended, Aniston has primarily starred in moves that showcase her comedic side. This includes “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “Just Go With It,” “Horrible Bosses,” “We’re the Millers,” and “Murder Mystery.”

Her role in the 2014 film “Cake” also earned Aniston a Golden Globes nomination for best performance by an actress in a drama motion picture.

Aniston’s current “Morning Show” role marks her first major return to TV since “Friends,” having previously appeared in guest-starring roles on series like “Cougar Town” and “30 Rock.”

Watch the 77th Golden Globes on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. The awards show will take place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California and Ricky Gervais will return as the host.

  • A formerly vegan influencer followed the carnivore diet for 30 days and documented her experience on YouTube.
  • Alyse Parker, from Connecticut, was vegan for nearly five years before reintroducing animal products to her diet in early 2019.
  • But she recently went one step further and ate only meat, fish, eggs, and some dairy for a month, which she says gave her “mental clarity.”
  • Having grown her sizeable online following largely by posting about her plant-based lifestyle, many of her fans are not happy.
  • What’s more, nutrition experts do not recommend the carnivore diet – specialist dietitian Nichola Ludlam-Raine told Insider it’s “absolutely ridiculous.”

A formerly vegan influencer has divided her followers by following the carnivore diet for 30 days.

Connecticut-based vlogger and Instagrammer Alyse Parker was vegan for over five years and grew her 728,000 strong YouTube following largely by posting about her plant-based lifestyle.

However, Parker – whose account was formerly known as Raw Alignment – announced she was no longer vegan in March this year, and she’s recently gone one step further by consuming only meat, fish, eggs, and some dairy for a month.

An increasingly popular but controversial way of eating, the carnivore diet is considered by some of its advocates as a good way to lose weight and heal diseases like diabetes, arthritis, and fatigue – a myth that Insider’s Gabby Landsverk previously dispelled.

However, these claims have largely been debunked.

Parker wanted to inspire people to challenge themselves

Having previously challenged herself to drink only fruit juice for 21 days, go a year without using deodorant, and forgo shampoo for a month, Parker decided her latest challenge would be following the carnivore diet for 30 days.

Speaking in a YouTube video about her experience, Parker said she wanted to inspire people to challenge themselves and expand their perspectives.

“Before starting this diet I was eating a pretty balanced diet including meat and plants and things like gluten-free bread and dark chocolate,” she said, and she also explained that she was mainly worried about surviving social situations.

Parker, 25, cleared her kitchen of all the foods she couldn’t eat – grains, fruit, vegetables, anything sweet – but announced she was allowing herself two “comforts” – bulletproof coffee and matcha.

Her cravings disappeared after a few days

On day six of 30, Parker said she was desperate to eat “anything other than” meat, fish, or eggs, and had been craving carbs too. But these cravings actually went away, apparently.

There were days where Parker felt bored of eating meat but she said she never felt too restricted.

The self-described “mindset transformation queen” started out by grazing over the course of the day and consuming dairy too, but a few days in she realized her digestion wasn’t great so decided to cut out dairy and switch to consuming just two meals a day and no snacks in between to “give her digestive system more of a break.”

“My digestion has been on point,” since, she said on day 23, and later added that it was better than when she was vegan.

Parker said she felt “super mentally clear”

By the end of the 30 days, Parker said she was feeling “super mentally clear” but missing the freedom of eating whatever she wanted, especially in social settings.

“The main mental change I experienced was having way more stable energy and focus throughout the day, literally every day,” she said, adding that she no longer experienced energy crashes.

When it came to physical changes, Parker said she noticed some fat loss and increased power in the gym.

“I ended up losing around 2 lbs in the full 30 days,” she said. “My physique changed slightly but nothing crazy – I mainly just felt more lean and more comfortable in my body.”

Having missed eating burgers with buns (and not just the patty), Parker said she wouldn’t continue following the diet 100%, but had noticed enough benefits to want to eat mainly carnivore going forward.

Many of her followers are not happy

Parker has received mixed reactions to her carnivore challenge.

Some praised her for experimenting. “The best thing we can do is self-experiment to figure out what works for us,” wrote “animal-based nutrition coach” Health Coach Kait on Instagram.

By this point, you probably know that I looove trying new things, running little experiments, and diving into challenges of all sorts.⁣ ⁣ Some of the experiments I have run in the past…????????‍????⁣ – 30 days without shampoo⁣ – 1 year without deodorant ⁣ – 21 days of only fruit juice⁣ – 30 days without social media⁣ – 3 YEARS of not shaving my armpits, not wearing makeup, not using heat on my hair..

But many of Parker’s other followers said they found her decision “disappointing,” “fickle,” and “disgusting.”

Most nutrition experts do not recommend the carnivore diet

Although proponents of the carnivore diet – which was originally popularized by controversial psychologist Jordan Peterson and his daughter Mikhaila – claim it gives you everything your body needs, many nutrition experts say it deprives your body of various essential nutrients and vitamins.

“This diet is absolutely ridiculous,” specialist dietitian Nichola Ludlam-Raine told Insider.

“It’s massively devoid in nutrients, carbs, and fiber which will most likely leave you feeling lacking in energy (with headaches) and constipated too.

“Long term it could have some pretty serious health implications, not to mention a poorly functioning immune system leaving you more susceptible to catching coughs and colds.”

Aside from anecdotes from carnivore-devotees, there’s little scientific evidence to back up the supposed positive benefits of the diet.

“We all react in different ways to various foods and what works for one person will not work for someone else,” registered nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert previously told The Independent in relation to the carnivore diet.

“In particular when it comes to diet, encouraging the elimination of whole food groups is extremely irresponsible.

“It is essential that if you are looking for advice in regards to your health and nutrition, that you seek professional advice from a registered nutritionist or dietitian.”

Insider has contacted Parker for comment.
