Jessica Simpson Weight Loss And Body Measurements
For everyone who is in the entertainment industry, staying in shape is always a top priority. However, there are times when factors beyond one’s control can make one gain weight beyond normal.
Jessica Simpson had been able to maintain a sexy, beach body figure since her days of being a pop sensation and reality TV show star but ever since she gave birth to her two children, the singer began to struggle with her weight. Speaking of her first pregnancy she said: “I gained a lot of weight, more than I thought I would. And when it came time to try to take it off, it felt overwhelming.”
After having her second baby, in 2013, the singer had an extra 60 pounds to deal with. However, shortly before she wedded her husband in 2014, she made up her mind to ‘slay the fat’ because she wanted to look sexy and appreciate being in a wedding gown again. That meant a lot of hard work and Jessica was ready to pay the price.
Looking at her wedding pictures, it was very obvious that the singer’s hard work had paid off! She went from dowdy to fabulous just in just six months in 2014 after losing her 60 unwanted pounds. Going through her recent pictures, you’ll never believe she was the same person who a few years ago, was walking around with a protruded belly and chunky legs.
How was she able to achieve this? Jessica changed her eating habits by working closely with Weight Watchers diet. During this period, she ate low-carb diet particularly lean proteins, non-fat dairy products, and fresh vegetables. She also does yoga and walks 8,000 to 10,000 steps daily.
In addition to making diet changes, Jessica also employed the services of body guru, Harley Pasternak for 45 minutes, three days a week.
