OK! magazine did a front cover story about how Jessica Simpson supposedly lost weight for her new man John Mayer. Personally I never thought she was over weight. I know for a fact that at Jessica’s heaviest weight ever, most men still found her to be the hottest girl on the planet. I can actually recall hanging out with some of my boyfriend’s friends and seeing her a little thicker on the TV, when one of them said “she is the sexiest girl”. Lets face it, MEN LOVE CURVES!
Here is what OK! claims to be Jessica’s meal plan…
and it seems to be very healthy!
Jessica Simpson’s Hot New Diet
by Sarah Dussault,
Last week, I wrote about Jessica Simpson’s new diet, or newest gig should I say as the spokeswoman for the 5-factor diet. I tried to get a copy before hand, but was unsuccessful. Now that I have the actual article sitting next to me, I’ll give you the real deal.
website 5factordiet.com looks more like an ad campaign than any I regularly visit. It’s traffic has obviously skyrocketed since the magazine came out nationwide on Friday. So what is all the fuss about you ask? Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak is responsible for the 5-Factor Diet and Fitness Plan. It consists of five small meals six days a week (plus one diet-free cheat day) and five weekly workouts.
Simpson is on the 1,300 calorie a day diet plan and has her meals delivered to her door step via the book’s website. My intern told me that you can only have your meals delivered if you live in California (which makes me think this diet is very small and new and nervous).
Here’s a sample of her diet plan:
Breakfast: Egg-white burrito, strawberry shortcake power smoothie, Ezekial toast.
Morning Snack: Fuji apple wedges with chocoalate peanut butter dip.
Lunch: Open-face BBQ bison burger, sweet potato fries and chipotle ketchup.
Afternoon Snack: Hot dog skewers wih roasted cherry tomatoes, jalapeno mustard sauce.
Dinner: Cuban-style shreded beef, cumin-dusted brown rice, char grilled corn.
Note to my readers: These all sound hearty and definetly MORE than 1,300 calories BUT remember, these portions are probably 1/3 or what you are imagining when you see the pictures accompanied by US Weekly’s desciption making it out to be like Jessica eats a ton and still loses weight. Lets be real here.
On May 18th, Simpson said at a party in Cannes, France that she was back on an “extreme diet and workout.” ’nuff said. She reportedly is doing alot of cardio and circuit training (motivated by the recent breakup of course with John Mayer).
So how much does it cost? The delivery service will set you back $99 to $115 per day! The book however does include 5 weeks’ worth of recipes. Every morning Simpson wakes up to a delivery of 5 meals for the day, consisting of 5 key elements: Protein, low-glycemic carbs, healthy fats, fiber and a sugar free beverage. Pasternak says he doesn’t count calories but gives the ball park range of 1300.
Lastly, the book calls for only 25 minutes of cardio on most days of the week for the general population. This of course is a slower way to lose weight and could not possibly result in a 20 pound weight loss in two months which is what the magazine is trying to tell us so we go out an buy this book. Of course inside the article, US admits Jessica puts in 45 (reportedly but I still think that’s low balling the real amount of time this girls puts in at the gym).
Lastly, this diet is not new and has been around for quite some time and has been written about in many gossip magazines. Why the rage now?
