Jennifer Hudson weight loss 2010

Jennifer Hudson reportedly has experienced weight loss, which is desirable after childbirth.  The American recording artist, actress and model gave birth  to her son David Daniel Otunga Jr. 7 months ago.

Jennifer Hudson told People Wednesday she has signed on as a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, a weight loss company that helps people lose weight.

Hudson reportedly gained more than 20 pounds for her role as Effie in the 2006 film Dreamgirls which won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance.

Hudson was quoted by popeater.com as saying "{It's} a lifestyle change, not a diet."

Weight Watchers as an international company that now operates in more than 30 countries has been around since 1963. Basically, it helps members to develop an overall healthy lifestyle to maintain healthy body weight.

Is the weight loss program effective?  According to a study on four diets including Atkins, Ornish, Weight Watchers and The Zone diets, which was released in 2005, the average Weight Watchers experienced a net loss of 3.0 kilograms in a one-year period, proving that the diet is the third most effective in terms of weight loss.

Maybe Jennifer Hudson used some weight loss tips from the company. But who knows?

What we know is that a person's lifestyle is really the determinant for weight gain or weight loss.  A healthy diet with calories under control and moderate physical exercise are known to help people maintain normal body weight.

Dr. Colin T Campbell, a Cornell University nutritionist, suggests that sometimes what a person eats can be more important than the amount of calories he eats.  He says if you follow a vegetarian diet or vegan diet, it is very difficult for you to gain weight.
Ornish diet is basically a plant-based diet, which has been used by many people to stop or even reverse atherosclerosis.  The effectiveness is said to be 99 percent.
