- Jessica Simpson lost 100 pounds of baby weight in six months earlier this year.
- Now, her trainer is opening up about the secrets to her success.
- The singer reportedly only worked out about three hours each week.
Jessica Simpson blew people away back in September when she revealed that she lost 100 pounds of baby weight in six months. Jessica reportedly followed The Body Reset Diet, but now her trainer is opening up about the fact that a lot of her journey was mental, too. And it sounds so...doable.
Harley Pasternak told Us Weekly that Jessica “focused on the 165 of the 168 hours [a week] when [she was] not working out.” According to Pasternak, this was the “most impactful time” for her weight loss. Based on Paternak's statement, it seems as if Jessica was only working out for about three hours each week.
“Once you become a mom, it’s not about you anymore. You’re living for something else, for someone else, and so you have to really be efficient with your time and you have to do things that are not quick fixes, [but] that are long fixes,” he said. “So with Jessica Simpson, we’ve been working with her for so many years. This time was different because it really clicked in her that, ‘Okay, I want to do what I can do not just for the next 30 days or 90 days, [but] for the rest of my life.’”
Pasternak had Jessica track steps on her Fitbit with the goal of getting at least 12,000 steps a day. The two also monitored Jessica’s “quality of quantity of sleep and her food,” Pasternak said. Jessica also ate (and, it sounds like continues to eat) three meals and two snacks a day that have “protein, fiber, and healthy fat,” Pasternak said.
Pasternak previously told Us Weekly that Jessica focused a lot on her diet. "It’s not about the workouts," he said. “You don’t lose weight doing biceps curls and lunges. You lose weight by changing your diet, hitting your step goal, working on your sleep … those were the things she did so well.”
Pasternak also said that Jessica completely cut out alcohol. “I am pretty sure she would not have been as incredibly successful in this physique transformation if she was drinking,” he said.
Jessica's transformation was nothing short of amazing—and she continues to look phenomenal. Jessica FTW!
