The ultimate Jennifer Hudson weight loss tips
  • Consume less calories and excercise more so that your body is burning more calories than you are taking in each day. This will force the body to use fat stores for the extra calories that it requires.
  • Drink plenty of water - Recommended that you drink atleast 4 litres of water per day for adequate hydration, preferably spring water.
  • Eat healthy foods - By eating healthier as well as consuming less calories, you will provide the body with beneficial nutrients that it requires. Protein, Carbohydrate, Fat and Vitamins + Minerals. Your body needs protein for repairing damaged cells such as muscle cells which are damaged during excercise and weight training. Your body requires carbohydrate to help the brain function correctly, keep energy levels steady and help with the transportation of protein around the muscles. Your body needs fat for healthy hormone production, brain function, heart health and the transportation of vitamins around the body. Your body needs vitamins and minerals for many different purposes such as the energy release, transportation of other nutrients around the body, such as protein and maintaining general health, keeping the eyes healthy, bones healthy, brain healthy and a number of other things healthy.
  • Exercise - By exercising you force the body to use more calories than normal due to the excess movement that you are performing. It is recommended that if you are a beginner to exericse, you start  at a moderate pace to avoid injury. Start by going on power walks and then increase your pace when you feel comfortable with doing so.
  •  Increase muscle mass - Increasing muscle mass increases your metabolic rate, which means that you will burn more calories each day just to keep the body stable. It is recommended that you train with heavy weights and perform a full body workout twice per week.

Remember, Jennifer Hudson was very motivated and dedicated to her weight loss programme. If you lack either of these i am afraid weight loss will not work for you.
