Just four months ago, Kelly Rowland gave birth to her bundle of baby boy joy. Her son Titan is officially here, and Rowland’s baby weight seems to have zapped away. The quick weight loss sparked much conversation on social media, as fans expressed how fabulous and in shape the “Street Life” singer looks.

Rowland finally revealed her weight drop secret to Extra, crediting her longtime trainer Jeanette Jenkins and SoulCycle instructor Angela Davis. “Jeanette Jenkins is the secret, SoulCycle is the secret, Angela Davis… when I go in there and it’s the wee hours of the morning she is a great secret, so motivational. Jeanette comes in with so much energy and this huge smile on her face and you can’t help but to get excited about working out,” she says.
The new wife, to husband Tim Witherspoon, and mother also adds that eating patterns largely weigh in on health and wellness. “The 80/20 rule is all the way real,” she adds. “Eighty percent of the time you eat those foods giving you nourishment, you’re eating clean. And twenty percent of the time, have guacamole, a ton of it like I do, and a margarita and maybe queso too.”
Although Rowland has access to top of the line weight loss supplements and procedures, she seems to have done things the old school way with exercise and diet. Paying a celebrity trainer like the working mom may not be in your budget, but you can exercise at your local parks or for a more reasonable rate at a neighborhood gym.
Eating healthy, which largely impacts your physical and mental fitness, can be just as affordable too. If you want to eat healthy foods on a budget, check out these reasonably priced eats that help burn fat, according to Livestrong.
Beans are a high source of protein. Top fat-burning beans are kidney beans, lima beans, navy beans and white beans.
Oatmeal ups your energy, and it cleans out fat hiding in your digestive system and the cholesterol clogging your arteries. Note that when buying your oatmeal, it’s more health beneficial to go with unflavored and unsweetened varieties. Sweeten it with natural sweeteners, like honey and berries.
Tuna is high in protein and contain omega-3 fatty acids, which boost your immune system and clean cholesterol out of your arteries.
Broccoli has few calories, no fat, lots of vitamins and has even been shown to fight cancer. It helps to burn fat by filling your body with nutrients, while its fiber rids the fat.
Non-fat yogurt is loaded with calcium and protein, both of which help the body metabolize fat. Eat low-fat or non-fat dairy products because the high-fat varieties have the opposite effect and promote weight gain.
