She said in one of her interviews, “Generally speaking I maintain a healthy diet (all natural food), my youngest child is not even a year yet , and I have already gotten down to my pre baby weight. My main purpose for detoxing is to start my new year off with a clean body, plus I went a little crazy during the holiday eating plenty of food. You know how it is, Mommy making that delicious macaroni and cheese, and other fixins you remember as a child.”
