Ashanti at the “Resident Evil: Extinction” premiere last week (WIREIMAGE)
We all heard the rumor about Ashanti hiding from the paparazzi because she thought she was too big to get photographed. Well it looks like it was probably true. Word has it that she lost eight pounds on the Master Cleanse ‘diet’ over the summer to get in shape for upcoming promos. Some of you may remember that is the same ‘diet’ Beyonce used when she wanted to drop a few pounds for Dreamgirls. Read on:
ASHANTI lost eight pounds this summer (07) on the Master Cleanser diet. The pretty singer felt she needed to shape up for a run of promotional appearances for new film Resident Evil: Extinction and new album Declaration and so she spent a week eating nothing. She explains, “I did the lemon-pepper-maple syrup diet for seven days. “When I got really hungry, I ate fruit. I lost eight pounds and kept it off.” [SOURCE]
Most people call the Master Cleanse a diet, but it is in fact a detox that is supposed to cleanse your body from all the bad chemicals and foods you put into it [click here to read more about it]. Trust, the drink is nasty as hell and I tried the detox too. I didn’t even last 10 hours. LMAO! It was definitely not for me. Congrats to Ashanti though.
