Jessica Alba gave birth to her second daughter Haven in August 2011. Most people would have expected to see her wearing loose over-sized clothes, but she shocked everyone appearing in a bikini just 4 months later, with a body that could burn a lot of women with jealousy. 29 year old Jessica Alba has one of the most desirable bodies in the world, partly due to her workout and partly due to her diet plan. With a height of 5’7″ ft and a weight of 127 lbs, Jessica Alba is blessed with a lean body. But still it would take some efforts to get into the shape in which she is, and we have all those secrets here.
Jessica Alba Diet:
Jessica Alba’s main secret in her weight loss and fat loss is portion controlling. She is said to watch her carbs carefully and does not like bread and desserts in the menu. She very well knows how to keep her eating habits under control, but is sometimes lenient and gives into food cravings.
To help fuel her workout, Jessica Alba follows the following rules:
- She prefers to eat lean cuts of meats, like chicken breasts and fish.
- She eats only part of the food on her plate, helping her cheat without consuming too many calories. (A waste of food perhaps)
- She keeps fat content low in her diet. Fatty foods are banned from her diet, and lean foods have taken their place.
Jessica Alba avoids egg yolk and opts for sushi and eats fruits and vegetables to get essential nutrients.
Jessica Alba claims that she cooks her own meals to keep a check on what goes into her meals. According to her:
Everyone in my family is heavily overweight. I wanted to be healthier, so I started cooking for myself when I was 12 years old. When I eat breakfast, I’ll have an egg-white omelette and fruit, or cottage cheese and a peach. For lunch, I’ll have a salad. Dinner is usually vegetables and chicken or fish. During the day I’ll have some dried fruit, or I’ll have a chocolate or strawberry frozen yogurt. I don’t really eat desserts or bread. You need to indulge and have that chocolate cake whenever you feel the need
She follows the South Beach style diet, with lean meats, whole-grains and low fat cheese. The following is an average daily diet of Jessica Alba:
Breakfast: 1 cup oatmeal with berries and 3-4 scrambled eggs.
Lunch: Salad with 6 ounces of chicken or fish (salmon,tuna).
Dinner: Sashimi or 6 ounces of petit fillet of beef or other lean protein with large amounts of vegetables and 3 small red potatoes.
Snacks: A handful of almonds or popcorn.
