...Jennifer Lopez and Spice Girl Melanie Brown...
As Seen In Star Magazine
April 30, 2009
The transformation of Lil' Kim goes way beyond her evolution from hard-core rapper to mainstream TV star. The Dancing with the Stars favorite has also embraced a healthy new lifestyle that's helped her lose weight, firm up and sculpt an impressive new hard body!
Kim bulked up so dramatically during nearly a year in jail that a New York paper dubbed her “Big Kim” when she was released. “It's not like they're feeding you grapefruit and blueberries in there,” she explained at the time.
But now the 4'11' dynamo has lost 20 lbs. and is down to a perfect 105 thanks to a change in diet and hitting the gym.
Kim, 34, signed up for Freshology (freshology.com), a food preparation and delivery service that counts Jennifer Lopez and Spice Girl (and DWTS alum) Melanie Brown among its many celebrity fans. At a cost of $53 per day, Kim gets daily deliveries of the company's FreshDining program, providing 1,200 to 1,400 calories.
In addition to her food plan, personal trainer Jonas Serrano tells Star that Kim “dropped 10 lbs., and probably even more” once they were deep into the rigorous exercise program he set up for her.
Kim's a total convert to her new healthy lifestyle. “Now I'm inspired to go to the gym, I'm inspired to eat healthy, I'm inspired to dance more. I think it's a lifetime commitment for me. My career is moving in a whole other direction, and I like it!”
