Jordin Sparks has turned her life around and now she’s sharing how she did it. The singer turned actress covers the August issue of Shape magazine.
Sparks changed her diet, started working out more and was able to shed 50 lbs in the process. The Sparkle actress sat down with the magazine to share her get-fit plan.
On deciding to lose weight:
“I just wanted to be healthy. I remember thinking, ‘I’m in my prime. I should be happy and fit.’ That was the moment I decided that changes needed to be made.”
On the changes she made:
“I knew I had a long road ahead of me,” she told Shape. “I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess. I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating.”
On seeing results after changing her eating habits and exercising:
“The weight really started falling off, and I could see my muscles. It was awesome.”
On getting into acting:
“It may seem like I’m spreading myself a bit thin — no pun intended, but I love being creative and want to try a bunch of different things, like TV or another Broadway show.”
