Beyoncé laments her weight gain after giving birth to twins Rumi and Sir in a new video titled 22 Days, proving she's just like us in so many ways.

The clip shows Queen Bey following a strict organic, vegan, non-GMO diet and working out endlessly to get back into shape in time for her ground-breaking Coachella tour last year.

The 37-year-old had just given birth to her baby twins at the beginning of the video, and it begins with the superstar singer stepping onto the weighing scales and saying; 

"Good morning, it’s 5am, and this is day one of rehearsals for Coachella."

The weighing scales show that her weight is 175lbs (roughly 79kg) and she proclaims; "Every woman’s nightmare. Long way to go."

Her 22 Days nutrition programme was set up by her friend and personal trainer, Marco Borges.

"I’m back on the stage after giving birth to twins. I was a woman that felt like my body was not mine," the Spirit singer admits in the candid clip. 

"Me getting the weight off was so much easier than getting my body back in shape and feeling comfortable."

The video also gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at Beyoncé in intense Coachell rehearsals, food-repping and working out ahead of her headline set, which became a Netflix film in a multi-million deal.

Queen Bey claims she has a "special bond" with daughter Blue Ivy, and has been honest with her followers about her post-pregnancy weight loss journey in the past.

In her Netflix documentary Homecoming, she shares:

"I’m limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol – and I’m hungry." The star has just released her Lion King album, The Gift.

The former Destiny's Child band-member admitted that she worried her body following Rumi and Sir's birth would affect her performance;

"There were days when I thought I would never be the same I’d never be the same physically, my strength and endurance would never be the same.

"And you know, a lot of the choreography is about feeling so it’s not as technical, it’s your own personality that brings it to life."

She continues: "And that’s hard when you don’t feel like yourself. I had to rebuild my body. It took me a while to feel confident to give my own personality."

Vogue Williams is a well-known DJ, model, fitness and food guru who promotes a healthy lifestyle whenever she can, and yet is still bombarded with online comments about her weight.

Commenting on a person's body, whether you feel they're overweight or underweight, is always a toxic habit to feed.

The TV personality welcomed her first child with her husband Spencer Matthews eight months ago, and has been open about getting back into fitness since the arrival of baby Theodore.

Sharing a message which was written to her via Instagram, Vogue wrote; "I can't tell you how annoying these messages are."

The star blacked out the name of the person who wrote the skinny-shaming note, which bluntly said; "You are way too thin."

The fitness guru emphasises a nutrition based diet and exercise, rather than unhealthy habits, so her frustration at receiving such harsh messages is deeply understandable.

Sharing her BMI on her Instagram Story, she wrote; "There you go, I'm in the VERY healthy range of BMI for my weight and height."

The image displayed a BMI of 19.7, with the calculator app recommending that Vogue maintains her weight.

Slamming her online bullies, the DJ then wrote a paragraph venting her feelings at the bombardment of weight-based trolls;  

"I keep getting messages like that. It's starting to get annoying especially because I want to show a healthy lifestyle."

She continued; "I'm 64kgs and 5'11. That is 4kgs lighter than I used to sit before I had Theodore. I can't explain why but that's where my weight comfortably sits."

"I train four times a week and try to eat healthily 80 percent of the time. Please don't send messages about my weight anymore!"

Despite having a baby just eight months ago, Vogue is firmly in control of her own body and clearly values the energy which her fitness routine and diet offer her.

New mums are especially targeted with online hate following the birth of their child and the pressure to get their 'pre-baby body' back. 

Nobody deserves to be targeted about their appearance, so let's hope these messages are firmly put to a halt after Vogue spoke out so eloquently against them.

Herself and Spencer Matthews, known for his role in Made in Chelsea, have only just celebrated baby Theodore's christening over the weekend, which looked like a lovely occasion.
