Meagan Good covers Heart and Soul magazine’s June/July 2011 issue. Inside, the 30-year-old actress opened up about her brush with cancer & how she keeps her figure.
On her cancer scare [she had cancerous cells removed from her uterus a few years ago]:
It didn’t scare me. When people don’t know they have something, they’re fine. When they do find out, they get worse. A lot is attitude. When you’re afraid and freaked out, that’s when it worsens. I try to keep a positive outlook.
On her diet and how she stays in shape:
I cut out cheeseburgers all together, and I’m really sad because I love cheeseburgers. And I do squats so I don’t lose my booty. [She cut back on red meat and juice after turning 30 in favor of seafood, grilled vegetables and water and she jogs about three or four times a week for 30 to 40 minutes.]
On being ready for a serious relationship:
I’m definitely at a point in my life where I am ready to find a partner in crime—in a good way—who respects my mind and treats me like a partner and a best friend.
On her girl group with sister Lamiya, H.E.L.L.O. Girls:
Our songs sound like the Beastie Boys meets Gwen Stefani meets Vanity Six. Mostly, they have spiritual undertones, but they’re not preachy. We’re telling women to respect themselves.
