Jordin Spark proudly shows off her new bikini body on twitter last May.
"Before, if I were to wear a bikini, it would just be in front of my mom or really close friends with a coverup," says the pop star.
Jordin started going on hikes and doing 30 minutes of high-impact cardio after she came down with pneumonia, just before her 21st birthday last December. She also does hour-long Zumba classes up to five times a week at Gold's Gym.
The "No Air" singer shares with People's reader her diet plan.
Jordin's Food Diary
½ cup vanilla Greek yogurt with ¾ cup fresh blueberries or strawberries and ¼ cup granola.
Turkey sandwich on whole-grain bread with two slices of turkey, cucumber, pickles, tomato, bean sprouts and a little bit of mayo, a gala apple, and 8 oz. Throat Coat tea.
Mixed green salad with 6 oz. of grilled chicken breast, three large sliced strawberries and one serving of Newman's Own light champagne dressing, and a glass of water or tea.
Sparks nibbles on two bite-size Toblerone pieces to satisfy her sweet tooth. Plus "if I'm feeling really good, I have some Malibu rum and pineapple juice—but only on a day without a performance!"
