The key, she says, is to sweat every day. Haddish was inspired to whip her body into better shape by Florence Griffith Joyner, the Olympian track-and-field star who still holds the world record as the fastest woman alive. 

I had this thought in my mind that I want the body of Flo-Jo!” Haddish told the outlet.

When it comes to diet, the celebrity, who is currently working with vitafusion Gummy Vitamins, said that a steady routine of vitamins is as important as watching her food intake. She explained that she’s trying to lean toward healthier foods while simultaneously “eating directly out of my garden.” 

In addition, she highlights the importance of fun when getting fit. 

“And I try to dance every day for like five to 10 minutes. I think that's really important, too: Make it fun!” she explained.

“I was homeless and hungry – that's like two Hs you don't want to be! Once I got over that hump, I felt relieved. But also I felt like I must continue to work and create opportunity for others so that I don't end up that way again,” she explained.
