Grammy-award winning artist and actress Mary J. Blige is on the December cover of Shape magazine - showing off her fit curves and sharing her personal tips for good fitness and health.
“My main exercise is cardio,” the 41-year-old tells Shape. “The treadmill is fine but running outdoors gives me the best results. I try to log 6 to 8 miles a week. I could be in the worst mood, but when I do my cardio I feel much, much better.”
Blige, who also recently took up swimming, credits a diet that "most of the time" is gluten-free, dairy-free and low-carb. 'I'm pretty diligent. I just can't eat the way I used to,' she says. From the article:
"A typical breakfast usually consists of oatmeal or an egg-white omelet with spinach; lunch is salad with grilled chicken or chicken sausage and brown rice or potatoes; fish and steamed vegies is often on the menu for dinner, while the hitmaker also drinks 'probably half a gallon' of water every day."
