Tiffany Haddish joined a 30 day fitness program to lose weight and build muscle
Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish has been very open when it comes to her weight loss journey. She is often documenting the progress that she made on her Instagram account. In November 2020, she also joined a 30-day fitness program in order to cut off some pounds.
In an interview with PEOPLE, the comedian said that the late Olympian Florence Griffith Joyner inspired her to lose weight. The program, which was called Luther Freeman’s 30-Day Transformation, helped her to build muscles.
“I had this thought in my mind that I want the body of Flo-Jo!” she said.

At the time, the actress revealed she managed to lose 40 pounds after previously weighing 182 pounds on her birthday in 2019. Her weight loss journey proved fruitful when she lost an additional 10 pounds three weeks after joining the said program.
“I’m stronger than I thought I was. I definitely have more endurance than I thought I have,” Tiffany said in one of her Instagram lives.
The Luther Freeman’s 30Day Transformation program offers personalized nutrition and fitness plan. The plan’s primary goal is to evaluate the body mass index (BMI) and lifestyle. Through this, you will be able to create a personalized plan which features nutrition tips and workouts.
The comedian has been documenting her progress while being engaged in the fitness plan on her social media platform. She’s very open when it comes to her weight loss journey, as she can be seen sharing photos and videos of her, showing her abs and toned body.
Tiffany Haddish shared her exercise routines to lose weight
Tiffany revealed that she quit smoking in 2018. The actress
did this to live a healthy lifestyle, although she gained about five to 10
pounds a month after giving up cigarettes. But this is normal for people who
quit smoking since the nicotine usually speeds up metabolism.
“I’ve been eating like it ain’t nobody’s business,” she told Ellen DeGeneres during her guest appearance on The Ellen Show in October 2019. “To counteract that, I started working out on the fourth of July.”
In a separate interview with PEOPLE, she revealed that she’s exercising for about 15 minutes to 2 hours every day. Aside from her routine, she dances from 5 to 10 minutes. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, she loved doing group workouts and tried to be more active during the day.
“I prefer to do stairs, like if I’m in a tall building I like to go up and down the stairs,” the comedian said.
In addition, Tiffany motivated herself by investing in home gym equipment. She bought a Peloton bike and kettlebells to maintain her routine, which she shared in an Instagram video. The actress further revealed that she wakes up at 2 AM to start her workout routine.
“I was going to bed at 8 or 9:00, waking up at 2:00, working out for like 30 minutes,” she revealed.
At 3 in the morning, she will be taking a quick shower and then head to work. She admitted that the schedule was difficult for her, and there were times she was crying. But, she always reminds herself that she’s in control of her mind, and her mind controls her body.
What was Tiffany Haddish's diet plan during her 30-day body transformation?
One of the major keys when it comes to Tiffany’s weight loss journey was eating healthy food. Ever since she began losing weight, she started to eat differently – like eating vegetables and eating directly out of her garden. She believes that “nutrition is everything.”
In her 30-day transformation, the actress followed a specific vegan diet and admitted that it wasn’t easy. She shared that they gave her whole vegan menu, and she cooked it for herself. Meanwhile, she said that she usually enjoys juices.
The comedian’s home garden has celery, strawberries, Swiss chard, kale, and more. Whenever she’s traveling, Tiffany enjoys her turmeric and ginger tea. As for her snacks, she likes pickles, nuts, or fruits. After the 30-day fitness program, she enjoyed eating meat in moderation.
Tiffany Haddish maintains her weight loss by eating healthy
After doing the said fitness routine, the actress managed to maintain her weight loss and has since lost 40 pounds. Now, she is dedicated to eating healthier food to keep a healthy lifestyle. Earlier in 2022, she became an ambassador for vitafusion.
Tiffany wanted to promote healthy eating since she grew up in a “food desert,” an area with short supplies of fruits and vegetables. She told Women’s Health that In South Central Los Angeles, there aren’t a lot of options when it comes to healthy food.
“It’s really difficult to eat healthy over there,” she noted.
In partnership with WhyHunger, vitafusion’s major goal is to make healthy foods more accessible. And since she is an advocate of healthy eating, the actress’ meal is filled with anything healthy, which is good for her to keep her weight loss journey going.

For instance, she eats an egg or an avocado topped with pico de gallo during breakfast. Her favorite drink in a day is the water from four coconuts, sometimes about five. Generally, Tiffany wants fresh produce when it comes to her diet.
She doesn’t have a specific meal for her lunch and dinner and said that it all depends on what she’s feeling. Yet, she added that she prefers to have Caesar salad, soup, or last night’s leftovers for lunch. Aside from the coconut water, she drinks around a gallon of water every day.
Tiffany cooks whatever she wants to eat for dinner, and she gets creative with it. Some of her favorite foods she often prepares include wild rice made with vegan butter, stews, chicken fried in grapeseed oil, steamed vegetables, and stir fries. There were times that she preferred a taco bowl.
On the other hand, the actress’ go-to snacks are walnuts and almonds. However, she likes to enjoy a Snickers bar, a bag of Cheetos, or Slim Jim on her long days. Moreover, she is a fan of vitafusion gummies, which helped her keep a healthy diet.
