Janet Jackson’s Diet: Keeping the weight off

by Dr Marc on May 25, 2007

janet-jackson.jpgOne year after a much publicized 60 lb weight loss, Us Weekly reports on how Janet has successfully maintained her great shape and kept the weight off. She recommends “eating light” and does not believe eating is about deprivation. She admits to having “cheat days” and handles her cravings by having “a little bit of it” but making sure to get back on track by “doing a little extra exercise.” While she continues to work with her nutritionist, she has now hired a chef to prepare her meals instead of using a food delivery service as she did last year. Btw, she used freshdining.com which is the same food-delivery service that Rickie Lake used to lose weight.

Janet Jackson’s Diet Plan
It’s a 1300-1650 calories-a-day meal plan with 3 meals and 2 snacks.

  • Breakfast
    4 egg whites with 1 yolk and half a grapefruit or 3 small oatmeal protein pancakes with sugar-free maple syrup and 2 slices of turkey bacon.
  • Midmorning snack
    Protein shake
  • Lunch
    Mixed green salad with grilled zucchini and 4 ounces of grilled chicken with olive oil and lemon pepper dressing or 4 ounces of tuna salad mixed with Dijon mustard and wrapped in lettuce, and an apple.
  • Midafternoon snack
    6 ounces of cottage cheese and berries or 12 almonds.
  • Dinner
    5 ounces grilled tilapia with half a cup of wild rice or 5 ounces of ahi tuna with grilled asparagus.

Janet Jackson’s Workout
While she was losing weight she was doing about an hour of exercise six days a week and now, in maintenance mode, she is doing about half that. Her trainer, Tony Martinez, describes her workout routine:

  • Interval Training mixing cardio and resistance work. “She’ll walk on the beach for a minute, then side-shuffle for 30 seconds, then run for a minute.” “Next we got to a reverse lunge with 3 pound weights for 30 reps, and back to a run again.”
  • Sports “We hit tennis balls. If she misses, she has to do pushups. If she misses again, it;s walking lunges around the court.”
  • Dancing “Rehearsal is a big workout. It’s cardio and lasts for 8 hours.”

Judging from her diet plan, she curbs her hunger by eliminating processed carbs and having a good amount of protein with each meal. It’s obviously a plan that works for her. Way to go Janet!

Hello! Janet you have always inspired me, but I've been having a hard time with having low back problems, exercising hard, 3 to 6 x's per week, eating half of what I use to and the scale pretty much stays the same. I am going to try it your way and see what happens. Thanks a lot

I was able to lose 35lbs myself. I was eating just about what I wanted thought and it took me a good 6 months to lose it safely.

But it sounds like Janet is following what I like to call the Eating Clean Diet. This type of diet is what fitness competitors use to get lean. But in all truth, when you eliminate sugars and white carbohydrates, you will lose weight drastically even without exercise! And when you cut back on carbs in general, that also makes you lose weight fast. But it's not so healthy because the body needs a little carb consumption for energy.

If you add resistant training + intervals (cardio) then, you will lose weight just like that BAAM! :)

If you run your own business there are several different ways that you can keep track of your records throughout the year so you are ready for tax time.
