Singer Ashanti kicked off her bulge by surviving only on lemon-pepper-maple syrup diet for a week.
Ashanti lost eight pounds by being on the Master Cleanser diet, which included eating nothing and surviving only on the liquid.
'I did the lemon-pepper-maple syrup diet for seven days. When I got really hungry, I ate fruit. I lost eight pounds and kept it off,' Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
She said that she needed to shape herself up for a run of promotional appearances for her new film 'Resident Evil: Extinction' and new album 'Declaration' and so she spent a week eating nothing.
