Vanessa Lynn Williams has a lot going for her at 46. She’s an American model, singer, songwriter and actress who became the first African American woman to be crowned Miss America in 1984. A scandal however had caused her to relinquish her title, rebounding by becoming a noticeable entertainer. She earned a Grammy, Emmy and Tony nominations. And at 46, the star of Ugly Betty is still looking fit and fabulous. What’s her secret?
Vanessa Williams’ Weight Loss Diet Plan
The mother of four looks flawless but her body is a result of hard work. She tells OK! Magazine and Shape magazine the diet plan that helps her maintain her figure. She only eats between one 100 and one 400 calories a day that’s free of dairy, wheat and refined sugar, this is according to her 5 Square Low-Carb Meals weight loss diet plan. The name of this weight loss diet plan pretty much says it all – 5 meals daily, but measure to small portions. The Ugly Betty star has her meals delivered to her everyday courtesy of 5squares.com, a company that has a Get Slim Plan where clients eat 1,200 to 1,400 calories a day in their weight loss diet plan.
Here’s a sample of Vanessa Williams’ weight loss diet plan:
Blueberry muffin with a side of turkey sausage
Homemade chicken and cauliflower soup
Turkey marinara over rice pasta served with a side of broccoli rabe
A mix of crudités with humus for dipping
Oatmeal- and almond-crusted pork tenderloin served with a side of asparagus and a baked apple
“The Five Squares portions are pretty small, but they’re additive free. Best of all, the meals in this diet plan are varied, so you’ll never get bored with eating the same food every day,” says the star. “It’s also a bit pricy at $43 a day but this is the best diet plan for me.” But she also admits that she takes a break from her weight loss diet plan and indulges in comfort foods during the winter time when she’d help herself to a half of a bagel with cream cheese and a half a cup of coffee.

The Fitness Exercise Program that Keeps Vanessa Williams Sexy
As for the fitness exercise program that gives her the kind of sexy body she has even when she’s now in her late 40s, well she has a fitness trainer whom she turns to for weight loss help. I do weight lifting exercises once or twice a week and I do cardio exercise sessions three times a week. But when she’s not doing fitness training exercises with her fitness trainer, Sal Gaglio, she still continues her exercise by stepping on her trusty treadmill exercise equipment. She also does some occasional yoga exercises and salsa dancing. Vanessa Williams gets her fitness exercise done by dancing a fun salsa workout called, Zumba. “I would definitely recommend salsa for anyone who wants to hang out with friends, have a ball and lose weight!”
Indeed, having a healthy weight loss diet plan and a good fitness exercise program can do a body well. You can obviously see the results of this with that sexy body of hers.
