Taraji P. Henson's Diet

Tara P. Henson's DietThe Karate Kid actress Taraji P. Henson is a woman after my own heart; she is a foodie! This blog on Taraji P. Henson's diet is going to be all about how she manages to be in such great shape, despite being the foodie that she is. Her philosophy in life is: "Love as often as you can. Dance like nobody's watching. Travel. Eat. Try new foods.” However, this Academy Award nominee knows that her body will have to pay the price if she were to indulge in all things yummy. So before she retires from the movie business, she will be working up a sweat to stay fit. Let's take a look at Taraji P. Henson's diet, or should I call it non-diet?!


Taraji P. Henson's Diet:

When asked, if she follows any diet, Taraji P. Henson said, “I don't really diet because I love food too much. My plan is to retire and become a foodie, a world traveled foodie. I'm going to travel the world and eat in all kinds of different places.” It is good to know that she does not follow any crazy Hollywood diet or have any weird eating habits. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button actress says that at times she does find it difficult to not to eat everything delicious, but somehow she manages it. She practices portion control and tries to eat a lot of lean protein and vegetables. But sometimes, if she thinks that she is working out a lot, she indulges in a nice slice of cheesecake.


It is safe to say that Taraji works out hard, so that she can sustain her love for food. So when asked, how she maintains her sensational body, she replied, “I go to the Cardio Bar, it's a franchise. They combine cardio and dance. You do everything at a ballet bar, so you do leg lifts and tendus and you have to do first position plies and you do a lot of them. It keeps you long and lean. Because I can bulk up, I don't like lifting a lot of weights. I don't want to ever look hard, I just want to be toned.


Final Word on Taraji P. Henson's Diet: 

I have written more than 200 celebrity diet blogs, but I must confess that this is the first time that I hear a Hollywood actress claiming to be foodie and really loving food. The important thing to be learnt from Taraji P. Henson's diet is that, if you love to eat, then you must be willing to sweat it out! This is why I love this woman.
