R+B star Ashanti lost eight pounds (3.6 kilograms) this summer (07) on the Master Cleanser diet. The pretty singer felt she needed to shape up for a run of promotional appearances for new film Resident Evil: Extinction and new album Declaration and so she spent a week eating nothing. She explains, "I did the lemon-pepper-maple syrup diet for seven days. "When I got really hungry, I ate fruit. I lost eight pounds and kept it off."
