American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino put her impressive curves on display as she danced heartily in a recent video. The songstress has put a lot into maintaining an ideal weight and is never shy to flaunt the results.
Barrino sizzled in a skintight black mini dress that molded her curves perfectly. The sleeveless outfit also featured a cut-out detail to the sides that revealed some of the singer’s side cleavage.
The “Free Yourself” singer modeled her signature short hair and wore black heels that drew attention to her tattooed legs. Holding a drink in one hand, she side-stepped effortlessly in sync with a man identified as her cousin.
BARRINO'S WEIGHT LOSS COMBINATION
In 2016, Barrino embarked on a fitness journey that saw her losing 20 pounds and debuting a slimmer body. She once took to Instagram to share a Before-and-After photo collage highlighting how much weight she had lost.
One of the pictures was of her and her husband Kendall Taylor on their honeymoon in 2015, and another showed her with a visibly slimmer body. Barrino also admitted that despite using a medical weight loss program, she had also been putting in work at the gym with a personal trainer.
BARRINO'S WEIGHT LOSS INSECURITIES
In November 2016, the mother-of-two opened up about her weight struggles to People Magazine. “In the industry I am in you have the pressure of perfection — and I definitely gained a few pounds,” she said.
We also reported previously about Barrino recalling how it felt to be in the spotlight with her body shape:
"I will say, being a 'real black woman' with big lips, wide nose, short hair, a big ol' booty and hips, and not what they say a black [celebrity] should be, was kinda hard."
BARRINO'S DIET ROUTINE
Achieving her ideal weight was no easy trip. Besides working out with hot yoga, cardio, and strength training, Barrino also stuck to a diet routine that involved:
“A 1,200 to 1,400 calorie a day diet [that included eating] lots of protein and low carbs, drinking only water, and also eating every two to three hours to keep her metabolism boosted.”
BARRINO'S FIT & FABULOUS LIFE
Since then, the “I Believe” singer has been flaunting her enviable curves and “feeling great” about life.
She looked splendid in June in a plunging black jumpsuit with fringed sleeves. Barrino had been performing at the Songwriters Hall Of Fame 49th Annual Induction and Awards, which held in New York City.
These days, Barrino, 34, can also be seen on social media living life to the full with her husband and two kids, Zion and Dallas.
