Cardi B is going on a crash diet to get in shape for a Covid-free summer. The Grammy-winning rapper shared a snap of her bikini body on Instagram.
She captioned the image: "This will be my last week of eating everything I want."
The mother-of-one typically eats two balanced meals a day: breakfast and dinner. "I eat a big breakfast and then I eat a big dinner," she revealed in an Instagram story.
In between the two big meals Cardi stuffs her face with junk food and sweets.
The 27-year-old said she wants to get back into shape after sitting at home and gaining weight on lockdown earlier this year.
Cardi previously consumed detox teas to lose weight. "Twice a week, I do Teami because I can't do it every day," she said. "But I'm really thankful for Teami because I really feel it helped my uterus get smaller."
Drinking tea every day (and not much else) can be harmful because the body is starved of nutrients, protein and 22 essential amino acids, which the body needs. The body can't make 9 of those amino acids, so food containing those amino acids is essential.
A 47-year-old woman who drank a gallon of tea a day for almost two decades ended up in the hospital with brittle bones and had to have all of her teeth removed.
