Jennifer Hudson is a well-known personality and an Academy Award-nominated singer. She is also a Grammy Award-winning singer. She has on many occasions shared her weight loss secrets which she once said, ‘I throw the pancakes across the room! I don’t let the food intimidate me.’
She has done very well for herself and has also been in great shape that everyone is looking up to her for a weight loss secret. And one thing she said that is noteworthy is,
‘I don’t let the food intimidate me.’ ‘If it’s too much, I just get rid of it, but I make sure to watch what I put in my body. And I make sure I know what it is. It’s all about portions, for the most part. I just take care of myself in that way, being more conscious. I don’t work out a lot, but I do like to be active. Simple as that.’
You know, the part of the quote that I like most and will like to emphasize in this post is the part she said, ‘I don’t let food intimidate me’ and ‘….but I make sure I watch what I put in my body…’
Don’t Let Food Intimidate you
That part she said, she does not let food intimidate her, is all about having total control over food. You don’t let the food have control over you, because if it does, you will always be intimidated by food! You can’t resist the junks that happen to be your favorite. As a result, you don’t watch what goes into your body, which regrettably is very bad for your health and body.
Watch What You Eat
If you really want to lose weight significantly, you must have the willpower to watch what goes into your body. What you eat, is what is going to manifest on the outside. And if you don’t like how you look then you should watch what you consume, it is as simple as that!
Hey, did she (Jennifer Hudson) say she does not exercise much? Well, that might work for her because her lifestyle may be that which involves a lot of physical activities. And also, she might have been in a state where her body does not require vigorous exercise to maintain her desired weight. Therefore, she may not require much exercise to stay fit, but she did say, she exercises.

You don’t have to use her pattern of losing or maintaining weight to be your yardstick. After all, everyone is different hence their response to weight loss workouts and diets becomes different. All you can only do is to get what best suits you in order to lose weight. Therefore, exercise cannot be ruled out or relegated to the background in terms of losing weight.
What Kind Of Food Should I Eat?
If you wish to lose weight, you must really watch what you eat. Fruits and Veggies are good foods one can take while trying to lose weight. Then good protein and carbs too. One will say, why carbs? The thing is that there are good and bad carbs. See more on the right food to take here.
There are super fruits that are antioxidants and can also speed up your weight loss, such as Raspberries and Blueberries. However, you might be worried about the calories in blueberries, but it’s only 74 per cup which is what you really need to keep your strength. While raspberries have even fewer calories.
Veggies that have been proven to be good for weight loss are green vegetables such as:
- Brussels Sprout
- Swiss Chard
Oh, if you happen to be in a Chinese Restaurant, get down with their vegetables there, it is good for weight loss.
Other foods that can also help are:
- Tomato Sauce
- Red and Green Peppers
- Boston Lettuce
- Carrot Juice
- Romaine Lettuce
- Vegetable Juice
Please, do eat plenty of these.
What Kind Of Exercise Should I Engage In?
Cardio, Cardio, Cardio! Yes, cardio is the most effective workout routine that can effectively make a difference in achieving that weight you desire. Doing cardio in most parts of your workout session is perfect. See Losing Weight With Cardio.
Some people lose weight much faster than others, but like I use to say, weight gain is also genetic, therefore you won’t expect everyone to put the same amount of effort into losing weight to achieve the same result. But the good news is that weight loss is very attainable, it all still boils down to discipline to achieving your goal.
If you are the type that doesn’t like certain fruits or vegetables, you can always juice it to make it more palatable. And the habit of juicing will promote your tendency of taking more fruits and vegetables.
