Stunning on the cover of the latest issue of Women’s Health Magazine is Issa Rae!

She shows off her slender body in photos in the magazine and then talks about dealing with gaining weight unexpectedly as well as how she has been keeping fit after disliking her appearance on her show “Insecure”.

See excerpts from the interview below:

On gaining “new money weight”
When the Web series started, I was very, very broke. Then more opportunities began to come, I was gaining New Money Weight. When you get a good job, you’re like, ‘I can afford to eat at restaurants all the time!’ That adds up in weight.

Her exercise routine
I exercise for, like, an hour each day. My neighborhood has a bunch of hills. I alternate between walking and jogging. I hate jogging – you’re going in circles, but I recognize that it helps.

On finding a diet that works
I was a big excuse person when it came to exercising and eating right. I’d have spurts of trying to work out and being good. Then once I fell off, I’d be like, ‘Well, there’s always next year. Let me make it my New Year’s resolution.’ But even then, I would still be eating wrong while exercising vigorously.
