• Laila Ali is showing off her newly trimmed physique in the newest issue of PEOPLE. The athlete revealed exactly how she dropped the baby weight. “The second time around I knew what to expect so I was a little easier on myself,” said Ali. “Once I saw that you just have to eat right and exercise, that’s what I did and it worked.” Ali says she also runs three times a week in addition to doing strength training and lifting weights. But most importantly, she gives herself room to eat what she likes. Ali allows herself to cheat about once a week. [People]
