Alicia Keys want to go healthy all the time and that means skipping fast food all together! That would be great if I didn’t love McDonald’s French Fires so much! Alicia wants to maintain her figure.

What keeps you motivated the gym?
Great music always works for me. It depends on how I feel. I listen to MGMT, Biggie, Jay-Z, mixes that I make, Bob Sinclair, even Roy Ayers. I like a variety, and it depends on the weather and my mood.
Best diet and fitness tips?
Donâ€™t overdo it. Do what feels natural, because a little bit consistently will make you more productive than barely doing a lot. And stay motivated, do new things. Itâ€™ll stay fresh and fun.
What are your weaknesses food-wise?
Delicious, warm soft bread is an indulgence of mine. I canâ€™t have dairy so it limits a lot of what I can indulge in.
Favorite healthy foods?
I love making fresh almond milk, love grilled fish, love aloe vera in my drinks. Iâ€™ve loved spinach ever since I was little. I love all kinds of food, but I love food that makes me feel good afterwards.
What inspired your healthy eating habits?
Iâ€™ve been a healthy eater for awhile. My friendâ€™s father had this incredibly candid conversation with me about food when I was about 12 and that changed everything.
I love Harley Pasternakâ€™s 5-Factor Diet book. And have implemented a lot of that into my lifestyle.
Favorite fast-food fixes?
No fast food! I watched a documentary called Food Inc., and I can never eat fast food again. Watch it. You wonâ€™t either.
How do you feel about cleanses?
It takes super discipline and you have to make sure your doing it correctly, but I like them.
How do you de-stress?
Massage, meditate, read, or go out and shake it off.
I really need to live a healthier lifestyle…eat better and exercise!
