The secret behind Jennifer Hudson‘s amazing body after baby? Weight Watchers! In fact, the new mom revealed she’s the new spokesperson for the company today. “With Weight Watchers, I am enjoying the weight loss because I’m doing it the right way–I feel empowered with what I’ve learned, everything from portion control to what foods will help keep me satisfied,” says the 28-year-old. “It’s a lifestyle change, not a diet.” The Oscar-winning actress-singer, who has a 7-month-old son, David Daniel Otunga Jr., with her fiancé David Otunga, 28–also likes how the diet fits into her busy lifestyle. “I can follow the plan no matter where I am, still enjoy my favorite foods and even use the iPhone app to track my points,” she says. Hudson is no stranger to publicly discussing her weight: After being called “the big girl” as a contestant on American Idol, the singer transformed her body for her Oscar-winning turn as Effie in Dreamgirls by packing on more than 20 lbs. with a diet of “cakes and cookies and lots of fried food,” she told PEOPLE. She later lost the weight for the premiere of the film. Celebrities who have represented Weight Watchers in the past include Jenny McCarthy, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, and Lynn Redgrave.–Michelle Tan

“Fried food” not “Friend food” Spell Check Please!

I feel as a larger person, she should be more open and honest about her weight and weight loss. First i dont believe that she gained 20 pounds to be in dream girls! After the movie she looksed the same. So she was heavy, then she became pregnant, and was even larger than that!! Then like a couplke months after she had her kid she is thin! I think it is definately something other than weight watchers!!

Wendy: This CAN be JUST Weight Watchers. I saw a good friend lose a lot of weight on this program and keep it off (for 2 years now). I think she probably has more opportunities for private trainers and such, however it can be done by the WW program!

Wendy, hsve you even tried Weight Watchers? It really does work. Maybe as a “larger person” you should consider it.

Wonderful, I am on Weight Watchers and it is amazing. A person is able to eat what they want, but only in smaller portions, you do not feel you are depriving yourself. It is inexpensive so anyone can afford it, the meetings are great for self esteem. I would recommend it to anyone.

I started doing weight watchers last year I have lost 60lbs. I did it all online so I didnt have to go to a class. Definetly worth it!

I am a larger person who is currently on WW and I love the program. I’ve lost over 30 lbs and am proud to have JHUD in the WW family. No one is obligated to be open about their weight loss journey as it is a very personal journey. I’m glad JHUD is a spokesperson.
