Jessica Simpson is preparing to debut her post-baby body on renowned journalist Katie Couric's new talk show which starts Monday and the singer recently confirmed that she has already lost a substantial amount of weight.
Simpson, who gave birth to her first child baby Maxwell Drew Johnson on May 1st, is expected to open up about her weight loss journey during the premiere episode of renowned journalist Katie Couric's talk show "Katie." The new mom signed a $4 million weight loss deal with Weight Watchers during her pregnancy, and Simpson's weight loss ads will also start airing Monday.
The 5'3 star claims to have gained 70 pounds during her pregnancy, allegedly weighing in at 170lbs during her peak. As part of the terms of her deal with Weight Watchers, Simpson is expected to shed the baby weight within five months and she recently confirmed that she is just 10 pounds away from her goal weight.
"I'm 10 pounds away from my pre-baby size," Simpson recently told US Magazine.
The 32-year-old has incorporated a strict diet and workout routine which includes low fat foods and frequent cardio.
"I'm trying to do at least 14,000 steps a day," she said. In conjunction with daily walks, Simpson also exercises four times a week with pro trainer Harley Pasternak.
"Her waist is going in, and her thighs are getting smaller," Pasternak said.
For breakfast Simpson eats half a Flatout flatbread sandwich with egg whites, peppers and fat-free cheddar (6 PointsPlus). During lunch the "Fashion Star" judge eats spinach salad with chicken satay and a pear.
"I make lunch my biggest meal to keep me full throughout the day," she said.
Dinner usually consists of fish with a side of roasted eggplant, broccoli, or asparagus, and a Skinny Cow truffle bar for dessert.
Simpson was photographed arriving at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Sunday and the singer appeared to be much slimmer and in good spirits as she made her way to New York City for Monday's taping of the "Katie" show.
