    Default Beyoncé Knowles ate pork scratchings when she was on a diet

    Beyoncé Knowles ate pork scratchings when she was on a diet.

    The singer-and-actress, who had to lose weight for her role in 'Dreamgirls', substituted her cravings for chocolate and chips with low-carb pig skins.

    Beyoncé told Cosmopolitan magazine: "It is so tempting on film sets. They have these tables with every kind of chocolates, every type of bread - doughnuts, rolls and even cake.

    "I'd just eat pork skins because that's the closest thing to chips that I could eat.

    "I run and do press-ups to try and stay in shape, but I can't resist chocolate."

    The former Destiny's Child singer also admitted she finds her healthy diet boring.

    She said: "I eat a lot of boring things like green vegetables. I don't eat red meat or bread and I don't drink alcohol - I just don't like the taste.

    "I also do a lot of dancing which I think is the best exercise."

    Ewwwwwww. If I really couldn't resist I'd just fuck it and eat the chocolate.

    Some diets are really insane.

    On a low-carb Atkins style diet pork scratchings are fine.

    How would someone collect scratchings from a pig to fry?

    I have a feeling my delicate vegan sensibilities wouldn't want to know, though.

    I ain't Jewish but the ancient Hebrew purity laws make sense to me, and that includes not eating pork. especially "scratchings" Holy, holy crap.

    I don't see how pork can possibly be 'unclean'. I LOVE scratchings.

    Me, too. Especially their anti-shellfish (or is it just crustacians? Can't remember) stance.

    One of my professors did her dissertation on it. Very interesting. Of course, much of it is moot now because of modern life... but still a lot of it really does make sense... especially about shellfish (scavengers). Anyway, there's just something about pork that bothers me, it's a personal thing... I don't care what others do...

    Scratchings = pork rinds.

    I've only ever seen pork rinds, never heard of pork scratchings.
