Get the Bod: Jessica Simpson Post Divorce

Breakups can do horrible and wonderful things to a woman's body. Jessica is no exception and with her new man John Mayer in tow, she is apparently committed to getting healthy post Lachey.

Want to find out how she is doing it, then

iFitandHealthy is reporting the latest on Jessica Simpson's new diet and workout plan:

Jessica's Diet -

  • Mashed bananas with peanut butter: “It doesn’t look pretty, but it’s a healthy protein snack,” says Jess. Salsa and low-fat chips are also a good snack idea.
  • Eat small meals packed with veggies every three to four hours.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Eat lots of fruit — watermelon is one of Jess’ faves.
  • If she’s ever in a pinch, Jess will go on a three-day juice fast.

A Typical Day of Meals for Jessica -

  • Breakfast: Egg whites with whole-wheat toast or a Zone-Perfect Bar.
  • Lunch: Salad with grilled chicken or fish, and crackers.
  • Dinner: Grilled salmon with vegetables.
  • Snack: A Zone Perfect Bar if she hasn’t had one for breakfast, or a grapefruit with sugar substitute Splenda.

Jessica's Workout Plan (sort of) -

  • Three days a week of cardio and circuit training.
  • ”I work with small weights – 5 to 10 pounds – but only to get toned,” says Jessica. “I don’t want to be beefy, I want to look feminine.”
  • Lots of lunges and squats to target the rear end.
  • ”I do a lot of Pilates and stretching,” she says.
  • “I love my body, but I’m modest – believe it or not,” says Simpson.

I think this pic was taken when she was at her heaviest. She doesn't look very fit to me.

She doesn't look that great. She looks, IMO, kind of out of shape.

I know she's pretty short but if that diet plan is correct she's probably only eating about 1/2 the calories per day that she should be eating, that's not a very safe or healthy idea. If that's all I ate in a day I'd be pretty darn hungry.

i dun think she looks that good, she always looks out of proportion. so much for a detailed plan of keeping in shape.

She -- looks real sexy and damm John Mayer -- I wonder if he makes those strange faces in the bedroom (I've seen him in concert -- he's great - but the faces have to go)

Those arms scream toned and feminine. (Sorry, I'm a bit of a twig-arm obsesser. Prolly the only part of my bod I really like! :P) Seriously, juice fast are so icky. Just gulping down your calories in a sugar-filled, acidic liquid. If you really think you need to, why not a veggie-fast? I mean, at least you'll FEEL full without having to pee like you only have one kidney. Jess, what happened? Stop trying to be John's starving artist girlfriend. Kisses, -RetroBunny

I look like She-Hulk after 6 weeks of regular weight lifting, it is ridiculous. I believe that this diet isn't bad, she is also eating every two hours along with those small regular meals.

Oh, and a juice fast for three days is supposed to be good for you!?!?

I'd have to agree, not such great advice. If you want real results and information on a nutrionally sound diet/meal plan, look at something like or similar sites. Also, low-fat chips & salsa... not a very wise snack choice in my opinion.

I'd rather follow Jessica Beil's plan. This jess sucks. She's not toned or in shape. shees.

I agree with both ash and design - that diet is NOT healthy - esp the drink fast and bigger weights do not make a woman bulky. It's very rare that women become bulky - if she keeps this up she will plateau, which will lead to a possibly no good body. FitSugar, are you supporting this diet? Can you give a list of pros and cons of her workout/diet?

It's too bad the diet didn't prevent her from fu*king up Dolly's song in front of everyone.

that diet sucks, it seems like she eats almost nothing...subsisting on zone perfect bars does not sound fun to me

It's too bad Jessica doesn't know that lifting heavier weights doesn't cause a woman to get "bulky", steroids do.
