I got a good look at American Idol's season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino on her new reality show, "Fantasia For Real". The show is actually good, and without even intending to, I ended up watching it on one of those marathon runs they do on the weekends. I have seen lots of pics of Fantasia since she won idol, and I gotta tell ya, she was getting pretty heavy there for a while. Almost every pic I saw of her showed a puffy, lumpy, not so pleasingly plump girl, and while no one is perfect, when you live your life on the stage, I'm sorry, you do need to be a bit more body conscious than the next person. Judging by what earlier pics of her showed, there was not one iota of attention paid to diet and exercise on her part.
Well, no more of that! The 2010 version of Fantasia is lean, slim and tight!
How did she do it? According to Fantasia, she now works out every day and has added some salad to her diet. She says that while she still craves some of that good southern food which tends to put that weight on thick, she has learned to be a bit more disciplined and say no to those high calorie dishes more often than not. Good for her, and a great habit for her to pick up at such a young age. It starts right here...the earlier you get on the health and fitness train, the better!
Kudos to Fantasia, and may she keep it up! Lookin' good, girl! ;)
