Singer Janet Jackson isn’t using a scale to measure how much weight she lost. She’s just sticking to her NutriSystem program to help her stay healthy, because focusing too much on your weight is pretty much setting yourself up for failure on a diet.
Janet told People:
“I don’t know how much weight I’ve lost, only because I stay away from the scale.”
She also said at the Marco Glavianos Supermodels exhibit in New York:
“I don’t think [stepping on the scale] is healthy. You’re setting yourself up to fail and women’s bodies fluctuate every month – certain time of the month in particular – we bloat a great deal.”
Back in December 2011 Janet became the spokesperson for NutriSystem.
“It works, point blank. You don’t have to starve yourself getting there.
“I love caramel apples! NutriSystem doesn’t have that, so that’s probably my cheat food. I go out to dinner with friends [too], but then I just get back on it. It’s about maintenance.”
But it’s not all about what you eat, exercising is also a key component.
“If I’m getting ready for something like a tour, I work out six days a week. I like to switch it up. I may go for a run or bike.
“I’m really happy with the way that I feel at the moment. I feel very good, and it’s been a long time since I’ve felt this good.”
