Jada Pinkett Smith Doesn’t Eat for Pleasure

Want another weight-loss tip? Don’t eat for pleasure.

Take it from Will Smith’s better half, Jada Pinkett Smith, who has managed to keep her slim figure even after three kids and twenty-something years.

Jada tells ‘Essence’, ‘I don’t eat for pleasure…(I) had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don’t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that’s healthy.”

Although she occasionally treats herself to French fries and pizza, the star of ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ says: “I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face.”

‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ features the voice talents of Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer, Jessica Chastain, and Martin Short.
