“I don’t diet. I’m Puerto Rican! You can never take my rice, pork, and beans away. Plus, I love to cook. I’m one of those people who stay in the kitchen standing while everything is cooking, checking on everything. I picked that up from my grandmother. So yeah, I’m still going to indulge. I just do the extra 10 minutes at the gym. I’ve been boxing since college.” Joan for Glamour US
