Need serious fitspo? Look no further than Jessica Simpson. The fashion mogul and mum-of-two has one of the fittest physiques in the biz – and she busted her butt to get it!

“I don’t think I ever expected myself to see the numbers that I have seen on the scale,” says Jess, who packed on 27kg while pregnant with her daughter Maxwell, four.

“I gained a lot of weight… And when it came time to try to take it off, it felt overwhelming.” But with a little help from the pros, she succeeded big-time!


How did she do it?

After signing on as a Weight Watchers ambassador, Jess dropped an impressive 3.8kg in the first two weeks.

How? The plan saw the 36-year-old follow a points-based system to evaluate her food intake according to energy, protein and sugar content, while also factoring in exercise.

What does she eat?

“By making healthier food choices and tapping into tools like the extensive recipe database, most people will find they’re eating more whole, nutritious foods on the program,” explains Weight Watchers nutrition advisor Emma Stirling, while Jess confirms, “I had to learn that with my first and second pregnancy.”

For Jess, those foods include oatmeal or eggs for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch and smaller meals at night.

“For dinner, I try and keep it super clean,” says the mum-of-two, who likes to chow down on steak and broccoli.

What are the benefits?

The plan taught Jess healthier habits she could hang on to long after dropping the kilos, like putting an emphasis on exercise.

“Being active is important in its own right, and not just because it helps with weight loss,” explains Stirling.

Whether it’s walking, running or gardening, the plan has helped Jess maintain her weight loss and boost her health.

What’s more, she’s still cooking healthy meals – while indulging occasionally, as depriving yourself is the first stop on the line to Binge Town.

So feast your eyes on Jess’s diet and workout plan!
