Queen Latifah’s Diet
Queen Latifah has been following the Jenny Craig diet, and talking to her personal consultant often. On the Jenny Craig program you get assigned a personal consultant who you can call, and they keep track of you. They teach you how to make better choices, and will walk you through moments where you feel like you’re gonna blow the diet.
“My intention was to lose five to 10 percent of my body weight because it makes a difference with health related issues, and I achieved that goal in a couple of months,” she told PEOPLE at the first annual National Awards & Recognition Luncheon for The League recently. “I’m excited about this weight loss.”
Queen Latifah’s Workout
In addition to following the Jenny Craig program, Queen Latifah hit the gym five to seven days a week, switching between the treadmill or elliptical machine for an hour. “My jeans are looser, I feel more energetic,” she said of shedding the weight. “People dig it. They come up to me and say ‘I’m glad you’re talking about the health side of it.’ People get that message, which is important too.”
“I’ve lost 20 pounds and my cholesterol is down 20 points. Thanks, Jenny! I joined Jenny Craig to learn how to make healthier choices, and it’s working. I’ve never felt better! With the help of my personal consultant, I’ve discovered real food…delicious food…that’s made my journey to a “Size healthier” easier than I ever expected.”
Queen Latifah Role Model
Even though she’s lost weight, Latifah said her fans know that she’s still one of them. “They see that I’m doing this for the health reasons but also say, ‘She’s still representing for the big girls. She hasn’t abandoned us!’ ” Latifah said. “This is me doing something for me, but if I am going to be a role model I hope people can catch on.” “[People] tell me how their daughters are inspired by the way I carry myself and not be a size 2.”
