    Default Janet Jackson lost 60 pounds in 4 months

    She was once famous for her impressive six-pack stomach. But Janet Jackson has now admitted she barely recognised herself after she piled on the pounds last year.

    The pop star told of her struggle with her weight after she regained her svelte figure by shedding an astonishing four stone in just four months.

    The petite 5ft 4in singer, whose weight ballooned to 10st 7lb, shocked fans when she was photographed with a bulging stomach.

    The 40-year-old star said: "I would look in the mirror and I wouldn't recognise myself. My thighs got really hefty and I got this really big stomach. Getting around was tougher. My shoes were tough and my ankles would bother me - they'd ache at times. Certain rings would not fit my fingers and watches would not fit my wrist, so I stopped wearing jewellery."

    The star insists she put on the weight for a role in the film Tennessee, and therefore, she "didn't feel bad" about herself.

    And asked how she gained the weight she told American magazine US Weekly: "Oh God. Just eating whatever I desired.

    "I put the weight on for a film... They wanted to see me in a different light, as a heavier woman. But the timing didn't quite work with trying to finish my album and unfortunately I wasn't able to do the film. So I found myself having to take the weight off a lot quicker."

    The pop star said nutritionist David Allen helped her regain her figure.
    He put her on a strict diet regime. She was allowed four meals a day totalling between 1150 and 1450 calories.

    Typical meals would include six egg whites or a small bowl of oatmeal for breakfast; four ounces of chicken breast or an organic mixed salad for lunch; an afternoon snack of grilled prawns or a portion of mixed vegetables.
    For dinner she was allowed 4oz of filet mignon steak or 15 asparagus spears.

    She was told to eat regularly and cut out so-called junk food like processed foods, white sugar and flour and alcohol and soft drinks.
    She was banned from going to restaurants and had to cut out her favourite foods.
    Instead she drank more than seven glasses of water a day.

    Jackson she said it took about four months to shed the weight.

    She added: "It came off fairly quick. But I hit a plateau at two months. Going from being able to eat whatever you wanted to being on this regimented plan was tough. Your body's going 'we want more!' and you cannot have more."

    She was also put on a gruelling exercise programme by trainer Tony Martinez six days a week.

    She added: "I hate - I can't say it enough - I hate working out. It wasn't until I saw a picture of myself just recently that I thought, 'Wow , you really did lose a lot of weight!' Now I weigh 120lbs but I still want to do a little bit more toning. For now, it's just nice for me to get back down to where I feel more comfortable with me."

    She was allowed four meals a day totalling between 1150 and 1450 calories.
    That somehow doesn't sound too bad esp when she ate 4 times a day... (= small meals few times a day)

    But holy cow she lost a lot of weight, she musta been very determined.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Gosh, I'm up in the air over how believable this is.

    I was on a diet similar to that caloric intake, just two days less exercise and the weight did come off, but not that much and certainly not that quickly. I guess everyone loses weight differently and maybe that exercise was all the difference. Also I didn't have the pressure of having an album to promote that my CAREER depended on, so...

    I still wouldn't rule out a good visit to the plastic surgeon for lipo, though.

    But SHE DOES look good, no doubt.

    Hmm, I managed to lose about 3 stone in 3 months. I just lived on stir fry and soup! I also worked in a job that used alot of energy so it flew off. Good for her. From what I hear she has done this sort of thing in the past.

    OK, isn't a stone 14 pounds? So if, as the article states, she "ballooned to 10 st, 7 lbs," isn't that 147 pounds?

    And now she weighs 120 pounds? That's 27 pounds lost, not 60. Or just under 2 stone.

    Something fishy goin' on and it isn't a 4 oz serving of baked snapper.

    A couple of months ago a few tab pictures of her totally covered up saying how fat she's gotten; now she's showing off her unbelievably ripped belly and toned booty on the requisite "How She Did It" magazine cover? Coinciding with the release of her album?

    Ah feel so used.

    Her weight goes up and down a lot. I bet by the end of this year, she'll have gained it all back.

    ^^ exactly what I was thinking. She gave up everything she loved, gave up going out, worked out 6 days a week. You can't live that way forever. She's going to gain it back when she returns to her old habits -- which, unfortunately, is pretty inevitable when you go on a strict regimen like that solely to lose weight. As soon as the publicity tour is over...she'll start gaining

    I was thinking the same thing. Either she wasn't as heavy as she says she was or she was wearing some sort of body padding to look larger. I smell conspiracy.

    PR ploy. Nicely executed. Give those hacks a raise!

    60 lbs in 4 mos = 15 lbs/mo.
    30 days divided by 15 pounds = half pound a day.

    Most reputable weight loss programs say 1.5 pounds a week is the optimum, healthy rate to lose and keep it off.

    Lying or lipo? Hmmmm... A little bit of both and a few hours of Photoshop.

    Whatever makes your star shine, Janet. But it's irresponsible to present that kind of insta-gut-be-gone as obtainable for the rest of us yo-yos.

    She also forgets to mention she is very wealthy and has nothing else to do but to focus on her weight loss.

    That is the key!
