Not only is she the daughter of legendary boxer and humanitarian Muhammad Ali, an undefeated champion in the ring herself, Laila Ali hosts three TV shows — “All In with Laila Ali,” on CBS Saturday mornings, “We Need to Talk,” a national sports show on CBS Sports Network featuring well-known female athletes, and “Late Nite Chef Fight” on the FYI Network. She is one busy woman, but still manages to make a health a priority by being realistic about it.

Six days a week, Ali eats all the right foods, but said she allows herself an occasional treat one day such as a slice of pizza with her kids. It’s about moderation.

As a champion for healthy living, she knows lifestyle choices and diet have consequences.

“I’ve had people in the family, male and female, impacted by heart disease,” Ali said. “But people can prevent it.”
