Ashanti regularly shares images of her amazing body and has been open over the years about her diet and fitness routines. In a 2019 interview with People, she advised people to "have balance" when it comes to getting the best results from their workouts.

"You have to eat clean and you have to work out. You have to allow yourself at least two cheat days so that it doesn’t become too strict,” Ashanti suggested.“I cut out a lot of meat. I think again, self-health and self-awareness are so important. All of that stuff is so important to maintaining your body, knowing what’s in your food, the GMO’s and the chemicals, and I’m super aware of this stuff.”

In addition to food, she also talked about the importance of having support when it comes to fitness.

“I have a trainer and we try to go five days a week when I’m home and then when I get to another place, he’s texting me a workout or he’ll FaceTime me and say, ‘Are you still in the bed?’ We try to keep it going,” she said.
