Jennifer Hudson Revealing Weight-Loss Secrets in New Book

Wes Ferguson / June 7, 2011

Suddenly Slim!
Celebrity weight loss: before & after!
After successfully slimming down (losing 80 pounds!), Jennifer Hudson is singing the praises of healthy weight loss.

The Oscar-winning diva is planning to tell all her secrets in a new book that will dive deep into her major lifestyle change. The book (currently untitled) is a memoir that plans to openly address the unhealthy eating habits she developed from an early age — to the pain of being scrutinized for her weight on American Idol. But the real reason behind her transformation?

As a new mom (to her now 2-year-old son), she decided to get healthy after her baby was born. Here’s more from the publisher’s release:

“The book … will chronicle Hudson’s experience growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority, to dealing with talk of her weight as she competed on American Idol and won her first Oscar, to her eventual decision to get healthy after the birth of her son, and her success losing weight with the help of Weight Watchers. Now, 80 pounds lighter, Hudson wants to inspire anyone coping with weight issues, share some of her own best tips for losing and maintaining weight loss, fitting in exercise and keeping it fun and much more.”

The book is due in January 2012. Follow Celebuzz on TwitterFacebook and Tumblr for more celeb news and photos.
