Jennifer Hudson Believes in the Power of Exercise

Congratulations to Jennifer Hudson!!!! The power of her voice practically blew me down through the television last night. What struck me even more was her exercise routine. Since she had to put 20 pounds on to play her Oscar winning role of plus-size Effie, she's been hard at work at working out.

Her trainer, LaFonza Alston created a diet and exercise plan to help Jennifer drop the weight. He told her every portion of food should only be the size of her hand - good note for us all to live by - portion control is ever so helpful when eating healthy. The diet sounds rather bland - salads, grilled chicken, nuts, and cranberry juice. Her workout plan includes a 4 am run followed by 4 sets of squats, push-ups and sit-ups. On the red carpet I heard her tell Ryan Seacrest that she went back to the gym at 1pm for more. Dang!!!! She did lose 25 pounds over the course of 3 months and has got to be in terrific shape.

hope her hands are big :D If you push the "extra ice" button on the soft drink vending machine, you won't get any ice. If you push the "no ice" button, you'll get ice, but no cup.

The diet does sound a bit boring--the food part that is. She has lost weight and looks great.
