Body transformations are never easy. They require serious commitment to maintaining a strict weight-loss diet; making time to hit the gym (even when you don't feel like it); and a total-body, fat-burning, muscle-building workout plan.

Throw in a thriving music career, a crazy touring schedule, and a residency at The Mirage hotel in Las Vegas, and losing weight can seem damn near impossible.

But Nathan Morris, the founding member of iconic R&B group Boyz II Men, didn't let his intense schedule stop him from overhauling his lifestyle and achieving a stunning total-body transformation.

The secret to his success? Focusing less on "going on a diet" and more on living healthy. "Many people are fooled into believing diet is key, but diets by nature are temporary," Morris tells Men's Fitness. "A lifestyle change is forever."

Since committing himself to maintaining his weight loss and a lean midsection any fit dude would envy, Morris now primarily sticks to "lots of green vegetables, a ton of water, good proteins, low-sugar fruits, and a good choice of vitamins," he says. Sugar, white rice, starches, dairy, and bad carbohydrates have been swapped out for brown rice and yams, which are much better sources of carbs for energy.

In terms of his workout plan, Morris is a "big believer in interval training." He does "15 minutes of sprints at least four times a week and 15 minutes of core and resistance training," where he points out that rep quality not quantity is the most important thing.

And despite all of his commitments, he still finds the time to put in the work—and believes that you can, too.

"Anyone can do it—it’s all mental," he says.
