Celeb Mom Slim Down Secrets: Jada Pinkett Smith

I love Jada Pinkett Smith, maybe not as much as I love her hubby, but she's pretty great. To me, she seems to have a good head on her shoulders. Jada has had her fair share of pregnancy weight gains and losses, that is for sure, so how did she do it?

Jada doesn't seem to be one to fall for the Hollywood outlook on body image, which is why I was thrilled that AOL got the scoop on what she did after her pregnancies to get back to a normal weight:

Jada Pinkett Smith found herself reaching for Frosted Flakes and Pringles during her first pregnancy. The petite star put on 50 pounds while carrying son Jaden, but was careful not to overindulge the second time around. After daughter Willow was born, the 5-foot actress dropped the baby weight with twice daily cardio and weight training sessions to increase her muscle mass. Her diet focused on high-protein foods such as grilled chicken or fish and apples with peanut butter.

I agree with everyone else. I so don't have time to work out twice a day, unless if I cut back on sleep but that's not a good idea either! She does look fabulous! You should see her band perform! Its awesome seeing her petite self rocking out and bouncing around the stage!

The only times I work out twice a day are if I only do it for like ten minutes at a time . . . Good for her, tho.

Ugg, that's too much! Not really a slim down "secret" either, anyone who exercises that much is gonna end up with an awesome body...but who has the time?

Gotta agree with the above comments. I try to work out and eat right but more often than not time allows for one and not so much the other.

Even while she was pregnant, I still thought she looked great! I do admire her lean body, but who really has the time to do cardio twice a day?

Of course I think anyone can lose weight if they have TWICE DAILY workouts, and probably a nanny to watch that newborn to boot!
