|Toni Braxton at Clive Davis' 2010|
Singer and the most reasonable sister and reality star of The Braxton Family Values, Toni Braxton - undeniably has maintained one of the best physiques in the business. And the 43 year-old entertainer, has never been one to hide it, on stage.
With a medical past of microvascular angina (vein complications), breast cancer and now battling lupus - she has certainly undergone a wide spectrum of detrimental health statuses. But in her eyes, it's all the more reason to stay fit and eat healthily.
The Breathe Again performer shared with OK! Magazine a snapshot of her daily routine and food choices. Crediting her physique to elliptical training, cycling and her love of those ever-popular Zumba workout DVDs - the star averages an hour of exercise a day. She also works out with a personal trainer, when there's room in the budget. That wasn't shade, we all know Toni's money has been funny.
