There is no denying that former Destiny’s Child star Kelly Rowland made a dramatic comeback after having her baby. Kelly made losing 70 pounds look easy, but the reality is that is really wasn’t – she had to stick to a serious diet plan and workout routine to achieve those sexy curves.
Kelly’s Diet – Easier than You Think
Many people probably assume that Rowland starved herself in order to lose that much weight. However, both her and her trainer Jeanette Jenkins say strict dieting had nothing to do it – it was all about clean eating and following an 80/20 plan.
Kelly’s 80/20 plan is a diet that nearly anyone can follow. The only requirements are that 80 percent of your diet must be foods that are clean and healthy. This means that you will want to make sure you eat healthy options like green vegetables and lean protein. The foods need to be clean, meaning that only organic options and those that don’t have any added colors, fillers, sugars and preservatives are allowed.
The remaining 20 percent of your food intake is reserved for the foods you love. If this sounds too good to be true, it really isn’t. Since you are focusing on making sure that a majority of your diet is healthy, that other 20 percent gives you the wiggle room you need to help you stay on track. If you consider that most diets fail due to the restrictions on which foods you are “allowed” to have, knowing that you can have that Snickers bar or pizza will help you stay on track and not get discouraged due to “failing” the diet.
Rowland’s Workout Routine
Obviously, a major part of having the toned physique that Rowland has is exercise, and lots of it. Her weight is well proportioned with her height and body size. Rowland’s workout routine consists of different types of exercise routines. This helps her muscles continue to get a workout, and helps her stay interested and beat back any boredom. It is also important that you understand you will want to make sure you fit 20 to 30 minutes of exercise in each day. However, you will use Sunday as an “off” day to give your body some rest and recovery.
A typical week of Kelly’s workout routine looks something like this:
- Monday – Core and Cardio
- Tuesday – Cardio and Resistance
- Wednesday – Core and Cardio
- Thursday – Interval Training and Total Body Resistance
- Friday – Power Yoga
- Saturday – Choice of Workout Routine
The exercise routines that Kelly does on these days are a mix of her and Jeanette’s Sexy Abs and Sexy Abs Cardio Sculpt videos, Cardio Kickboxing, Power Yoga and Bikini Bootcamp.
