How Kimora Lee Simmons Lost 25 Pounds!
Kimora Lee Simmons, 36, has been causing many heads to turn around and get a better look at her. Why? This former American model turned fashion icon has shed 25 pounds and is looking more svelte than ever.
When asked how did she manage to lose the pounds, especially when she is juggling between work and three children, the former president of Phat Fashions replied saying, "By not eating a whole lot," Kimora Lee Simmons continued jokingly, "But I don't like to tell the kids that so they think they shouldn't eat. No, I watch my portions, and I eat leaner proteins and vegetables and stuff like that."
Kimora Lee Simmons knows that there is extensive pressure on women in Hollywood to look skinny all the time and that they at times refuse to eat. This 6 foot tall Fabulosity authoress is sure that she will not be joining the size 0 band bandwagon. She narrated an incident saying, "I was out one night with two famous sisters(not revealing their identity), when a bunch of burgers were being passed around. I went to grab one and the two of them looked shocked. They said, 'We don't eat.' Then after I grabbed a burger, they said they were joking but I knew they weren't!" Kimora may grab a burger once in a while but she has definitely cut down the frequency at which she has them.
This lady who is behind the perfumes Goddess and Baby Phat Fabulosity said that it is only sensible eating that has got her back in shape, especially when she does not have a great fat metabolism. “Look, it's common sense. I know I have to put my baby in a buggy, and get outside and walk for thirty minutes every day. I had oatmeal and blueberries for breakfast this morning instead of the white bread slathered in butter and jelly I might have had before. I'm not naturally athletic, and I totally relate to women who have had long-standing battles with their weight. I've had the thyroid issue. It's hard for me. But if I can manage to do it, you can too," said Kimora Lee Simmons.
Now that she has lost weight, Kimora Lee Simmons wants to stop all the rumor mills that have been spinning saying that she has stopped eating. She calls that as irresponsible reporting. “ It really upset me because it's not at all my message, and I want people to know that. I'm first and foremost a mother and a wife, and I'm raising three kids, and I want them to grow up to have a healthy sense of self," she said an interview with StyleList.
