Jessica Simpson Goes on ‘Revenge Diet’

Celebuzz / July 29, 2009

Apparently, Jessica Simpson thinks that living thin is the best revenge.

OK! Magazine reports that Simpson—who’s been plagued by weight fluctuations in recent years—has kicked up her fitness regimen in an effort to get back into fighting trim after Tony Romo dumped her on the eve of her 29th birthday earlier this month.

“Right after Tony ended things, Jessica said, ‘I want my old body back,’” a pal of Simpson’s says. “She went into her kitchen, got a trash bag and started to clear it out.”

Moreover, Simpson is hitting the  gym with more frequency in order to rein in her curves, hitting up celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak’s fitness center in West Hollywood in the weeks following the breakup.

“Jess is serious about getting her body back into fighting shape,” the buddy continues. “Working out is helping to give her focus and clear her head. It’s better than sitting around moping or throwing pity parties with ice cream sundaes.”

Hey now, don’t knock ice-cream sundaes—they’re delicious!
