Fantasia is back out on the scene with a new album, new attitude and new slimmer figure!

In a recent interview with Essence.com, the “Lose to Win” singer revealed how she was able to drop 50 pounds after the birth of her son and get back in shape in time for her album’s release.

“Working out for me, started as something mental. It was a way to release and let some things go,” she said. “I workout every day, sometimes twice a day. I keep my trainer with me and she travels with me. I love pilates, yoga, and spinning. I also attend boot camp class and they have become my workout family. Doing it with them makes me feel good.”

The “American Idol” winner went on to say that she decided to live a healthier lifestyle as an example for her family members.

I’m on that health kick right now. This is something I had to do for myself and for my family,” she said. “A lot of my cousins who are my age or are in their 30′s are on high blood pressure pills and it’s like, c’mon, you’re too young for that. I wanted to be the person in my family to stand up and say, ‘Okay we have to eat better and workout.’ I want to be around for a long time. I can’t travel like I do and not be healthy. You know how I move on stage. At any minute I could just pass out and that’s not good.”

Not only does she look great, but Fantasia said she feels better than ever!

“I just feel confident,” she said. “If no one ever says it, I can look in the mirror and say to myself, ‘Good God almighty, you’re a bad mama-jamma!’

  1. During the recovery period between fasts, the benefits
    of the fast will keep on accruing as healthy tissue is built up and toxins continue to be eliminated.
    Also, if you have a team that’s counting on you every week, you’re more likely to go even when you’re tired than if you were doing a solitary workout.
    Like artificial sweeteners it affects your hypothalamus gland, is addictive, and
    will cause you to gain weight rapidly.

  2. You will also find good doses of Omega 3 in most seafood, green leavy vegetables, fatty
    fish (salmon, tuna, trout, mackerel), walnuts, olive, and
    canola oil. They eat fat-free cookies, fat-free
    chips, and fat-free dairy products, yet they keep getting fatter.
