How Ciara Lost 60 Lbs in Four Months


Ciara has revealed she dropped 60 pounds in just 4 months after adhering to a strict diet and a fitness regimen that saw her going to the gym several times a day.

The singer welcomed son Future in May 2014 and she was determined to get back to her pre-baby weight.

In an interview for the September issue of Shape magazine, Ciara said: “When I was pregnant with Future, one thing I learned quickly was, don’t ever let a pregnant lady be hungry, because when I was, I was like the Tasmanian Devil!

“But as soon as the doctor said I could start training again, I was on the treadmill the very next day.”

Ciara also said she hired popular celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson, who helped her shed the baby weight.

“Five days a week, Gunnar puts me through an hour-long plyometric cardio circuit that always includes boxing elements,” she said.

“It’s hitting your muscles; it’s a cardiovascular workout; and it’s a mental exercise… After I’ve done a few rounds, I feel as if I can conquer the world.”

She was doing three workouts a day.

“I would go to Gunnar first for my one-hour training session, then I’d have two more cardio sessions later in the day,” she said.

“That, along with a really clean eating plan, was how I lost 60 pounds in four months.”

Ciara told the magazine that she ate five to eight nutrient-rich meals, but vowed to not go overboard with her diet.

“When I’m on a strict eating regimen, at some point I have to have French fries, a cheese burger and some pizza. And Oreos and vanilla ice cream!” she said.

Ciara said she drinks “tons of water, too.”
