Adrienne Bailon has lost 20 pounds by switching to a plant-based diet.
The Cheetah Girls star, who is currently a co-host of U.S. TV talk show The Real, took to Instagram on Friday to show off her new figure in a black bikini.
“During this time more than ever, staying healthy is at the top of my mind!” Adrienne wrote in the caption. “This is my first post in a bathing suit since losing 20lbs. Now… I’ve lost weight before but always gained it back… because I was dieting & not changing my lifestyle!”
The 36-year-old told her followers that she had simply had enough of trying and failing with numerous diets, and decided to take action to shift the pounds once and for all.
“But not this time… It’s been a year since I ‘had enough’ (have you ever gotten there? Where you’re just tired of complaining about what you don’t like & you’re finally ready to take action & REALLY make changes!) Well, I made major changes like choosing to eat plant based changing my whole relationship with food & working out!” she continued.
And she credited switching to a plant-based diet with helping her to continue on her health journey.
“I’ve been consistent with my self discipline (although it’s been so hard at times). I’m constantly reminding myself that the greatest form of self love – is self discipline!” Adrienne shared. “They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit… I just want to encourage you to take this time to develop healthy habits! Drink your water, squat, rest, read, pray, take your vitamins, eat your veggies! (Preaching to myself to keep going! Lol.) It’s a new month! Let’s do this!”
