The full name of the singer is Ashanti Shekvoya Douglas. A few years ago, she performed under the full name Ashanti Douglas, but then realized that Ashanti sounded more.
Ashanti was born in 1980, and her first serious steps in music she did in the early 2000’s. Her debut album Ashanti with the hit Foolish showed excellent sales results – more than 500 thousand copies. In 2003, she won the Grammy Award for this album. In 2009, Ashanti was recognized as the third in the top of the most popular solo R & B singers (the first and second took Beyonce and Alisha Kiz). In the same year, Ashanti received the unofficial title of Princess of R & B.
As any celeb, Ashanti realized the necessity of staying in a good shape, so she was fighting for slim body for long time.
Ashanti tried herself and as a model, and as an actress, but just, as they say, for the soul. Ashanti starred in minor roles in the comedies Bride and Prejudice and Die, John Tucker!, and also in the third part of the zombie thriller Resident Evil.
Actress and singer Ashanti was reported to follow a kind of cleansing course for 7 days, which contributed to the loss of 8 pounds (3,5 kilos) before the filming of the new film Resident Evil: Extinction and the recording of the new album Declaration.
But there are real things that the beauty did to lose extra weight and to get slimmer body.
The first thing in this battle was the rejection of fried food. Yes, it was hard, but beauty requires sacrifices and compromises.
The second point – plenty of liquids. But not any liquids – pure water and natural juices.
Besides, the most important part of the diet was self-discipline and control. Ashanti used to eat everything she wanted in unlimited quantities, but from the moment she decided to lose weight, she cut down the size of her portions. Surprisingly, the singer realized that it was not that hard and nothing bad happened to her just because she eats half as less as she used to.
