Rozonda Ocelean Thomas, famously known as Chili of famous pop group TLC, is easily one of the most recognizable faces from the group, and her sultry voice fills the listener’s ears in hit songs such as "Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg", "What About Your Friends", "Hat 2 da Back", "No Scrubs", "Waterfalls", and "Girl Talk". Any woman would certainly get jealous with her silken pipes, gorgeous face, and lean fit figure. Fortunately, she shares to us the secrets behind her chili hot figure, and how she maintains it while being in front of the spotlight.
Chili’s diet is the low carbohydrate diet that allows the consumption of meats, cheeses, fats, and some green leafy vegetables.
At the same time, it avoids the intake of any meals or foods with sugar, white flour, or starchy vegetables to keep the intake of carbohydrates at a minimal amount.
Chili’s diet allows her to lose weight as long as she sticks with consuming the allowable foods.
A typical meal of Chili includes baked free range chicken from Whole Foods or the farmer’s market, together with sauteed fresh green beans or collard greens.
She shares, “I like to add turkey bacon and a diced up onion, stir it together, and serve it over brown rice.”
For Chili’s exercise routine, she works out 4 times weekly together with her personal trainer Luis George.
“I want more definition. I’m very competitive with my trainer Luis George, and that motivates me. When I’m working out, I want to be the best, period. I want to have better abs than Usher,” she shares.
During Monday and Friday, Chili jogs for 45 minutes and completes 12 sets of 60 yard sprints. This is followed by 300 to 500 reps of abdominal exercises that involve completing 50 crunches, 50 toe touches, plus 50 leg raises.
During Tuesdays and Thursdays, Chili’s exercise routine includes strenuous leg plus upper body routines that involves leg extension for 4 sets of 8 repetitions, leg presses with 4 sets of 8 repetitions, lunges for 3 sets of 10 repetitions, calf raises with 4 sets of 12 repetitions, push ups with 4 sets of 12 repetitions, followed by 10 repetitions of dumbbell triceps extensions, superset with 15 repetitions, bicep curls for 3 sets of 10 to 15 repetitions.
During the evening, Chili walks around her neighbourhood to help her relax and to stretch all of the muscles she worked out for the day.
