    Default Queen Latifah wants to set a healthy example

    Queen Latifah officially announced Thursday that she's joining the ranks of Kirstie Allie and Valerie Bertinelli as the new spokeswoman for the Jenny Craig weight-loss program.

    "I feel like I've set the example for loving your body no matter what size it is, but I also can set the example for being healthy as well," says the singer and actress whose grandmother suffered from diabetes.

    Talking about the health benefits of shedding a few pounds she says, "If you lose 5 7 percent of your bodyweight, you cut the chances of diabetes in half."

    Asked to name her usual dieting downfall, she says she doesn't have a sweet-tooth, but "portions and sizes" is what gets her in trouble.

    "I don't eat bad food. I probably just eat too much food, and I think a lot of people do," the Mad Money star admits.

    By following the Jenny Craig program, which consists of a diet of prepackaged food and weekly weigh-ins and meeting, Latifah says her main goal is to be a healthy role model.

    "I'm trying to just be an inspiration to people who just want to get healthy," she says. "It's not about losing 100 lbs., because that's not who I want to be. But, it is about being really healthy."

    I really like her, and I hope that I don't want to strangle her every time she's on the television. The writing for those commercials are annoying as hell.

    I love her too, but one of the rags said she is doing this primarily to "distance" herself from her trainer/girlfriend. If you think of it, it's bad advertising for the trainer, that she can't help her only Jenny Craig can.

    Aww, that's sad. First Queen denies their relationship, and now when people ask her how she trimmed down, she won't even give her credit for her career.

    That's too bad. I just got Janette's new Crunch Fitness workout and really like her as an instructor. I've heard good things about her Hollywood Trainer series, too. OTOH, being healthy takes more than exercise. I can see her realizing she needs both.
