In an interview with YahooStyle, the singer revealed how she was able to bounce back after giving birth to her nine-month-old son, Future Zahir Wilburn.
“I became a machine, like, ‘I’ve got to wake up, breastfeed my baby, get on the treadmill, go see my trainer, come home, breastfeed, get on the treadmill again!'” she recalls, revealing that she gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy.
The singer adds that she was “really aggressive with training to kind of get back to my pre-mommy stage.” As for what her diet looked like, she says, “I would have moments where I would go super strict: a lot of good fibers, good protein, selective carbs that are healthy for you. And tons of water! You can literally lose four pounds in two days from drinking tons of water.”
Aside from her fitness regiment, Ciara says that she’s found a balance in motherhood and her career. “I’m in a very happy place in my life,” says Ci Ci, who is set to release her next album this May.
