Mandisa of American Idol 5th Season Loses 80 Lbs

Working with a personal trainer, Mandisa managed to lose 80 pounds of weight and hopes to lose up to 100 lbs or more. Along with regular exercise 3-4 times a week, she has completely cut out processed foods including white flour and sugars. Her salt intake is limited also.

Instead of opting for boring exercise routines, Mandisa chooses to enjoy the weight loss process with Zumba dancing. (We too are believers in the greatness of Richard Simmons.)
