Singer Ciara has lost 9kg since the start of her career and admitted she didn't get properly into her fitness before she was in the spotlight.
The Like A Boy singer says it wasn't until 15 years ago when she first emerged on the music scene, that she started to follow a strict meal plan of five small plates a day.
Ciara told PEOPLE: "When I first started in my career, I weighed 9kg more than I weigh now.
"That was the first time I got introduced to eating five small meals a day to impact my workout.
"When you're eating small meals, your body starts to function like a well-oiled machine.
