           Busy mother Gwyneth Paltrow is known for combining dance and Yoga workouts (in addition to   walking with  workout buddy and fellow momma, Madonna).  How Jennifer Stays Fit:

“I wanted to share a workout video I’ve been using recently. Have you ever heard of Turbo Jam? I saw it on an infomercial back last spring (and I never ever have done anything based on an infomercial), but I went online and ordered it. And now I’m really glad I did. I’ve been using the videos since March, along with eating a healthier, fruit and veggie rich diet. I’ve lost nearly 20 pounds! I feel great, my clothes fit better… I’m in better shape now than before I even had kids!”


What Her Workouts Consist Of:

“The workouts are pretty easy – a combo of various punches, kicks, a little tai chi, yoga and capoeira thrown in for good measure. “


How She Fuels Her Workouts:

“I’ve recently found that it’s really helpful to key in on my hunger (before eating). I try to only eat when I feel hungry, and then eat slowly (when possible…because you can’t eat very slowly when you only have 4 minutes to eat breakfast and get out the door!) When I feel satisfied I stop eating …no matter what is left on my plate.  If I feel full, I stop eating. Simple concept, but it works! The days of eating until I feel absolutely stuffed are over. And it really surprises me … why do we as a society continue to eat and eat until we’re completely miserable?”
