After a string unsuccessful celebrity diet spokespeople, from Carnie Wilson getting fired from Fresh Diet to Kirstie Alley yo-yoing after Jenny Craig, popular diet plans are getting a boost from slimmed down celebs that are keeping the weight off.
Jennifer Hudson has kept her weight off for more than a year with Weight Watchers and Janet Jackson is sporting a slimmer frame with the help of NutriSystem. Now, Jenny Craig’s newest celeb endorser Mariah Carey is a prime example the diet can work, landing the cover of SHAPE magazine’s May issue just months after giving birth to twins.
Mariah Carey has used Jenny Craig to lose an amazing 30 pounds, and gain some amazing abs, to boot. Carey credits her new diet for most of her transformation.
“I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet,” Mariah said. “Today my workout routine is more about getting and staying toned. And for me, that means either taking hour-long walks a few times a week or jumping in the pool three or four days a week to do 45 minutes of aquatic exercises.”
Carey admits that her body doesn’t respond the way that it used to. “I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed.”
Jenny Craig is meal-delivery diet known for its pre-packaged and portion-controlled meals, but what sets it apart is the ability to work closely with Jenny Craig counselors to actually learn about portion control, healthy cooking and making smart choices at home or while eating out.
Congrats, Mariah on dropping the baby weight but still keeping your famous curves. Check out Mariah’s amazing cover, on sale now.
