Jessie James Decker’s Diet

Summary

Decker hit the genetic lottery. She doesn’t subscribe to any particular diet. She loves to eat and believes portion control is the secret to her ripped physique. She often only has coffee for breakfast and rarely eats before 11 am, which means that she engages in intermittent fasting, although she does not call it that. She cooks almost everything she eats and opts for healthy, wholesome foods. Lunch and dinner might be a salad with grilled chicken or turkey chili. She is a big fan of olive oil and does not go for juices, even fresh ones, because she says they contain a lot of sugar.

Diet Details

\

Caff Up

Decker needs her morning joe with half-and-half to get going. She admits that she’s not much of a morning person. Lucky for her, hubs Eric makes breakfast for her, and for the kids too.

\

Healthy Choices

Decker opts for nutrient-rich foods like leafy greens and lean animal protein for lunch and dinner. If she’s really pressed for time, she’ll make herself a simple sandwich, such as ham, cheese and avocado, rather than going out for fast food.

\

A Balanced Approach

Decker isn’t a fan of denial. She is not afraid of carbs and often has toast for breakfast and pasta for dinner. She says eating a sensible portion is the key.

\

Smart Snacks

Decker’s snacks of choice are South Beach diet bars, or maybe some pita dipped in hummus.

\

Spice It Up

Decker loves her down home cajun spicy foods, and if she has a breakfast burrito, she’ll add some Louisiana Hot Sauce to it.

\

Let the Good Times Roll

Decker says that if she could get away with eating anything at all, she’d have a giant bread roll with cinnamon butter like they serve at Tommy Bahamas.

Jessie James Decker’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

A K.I.S.S. Plan

Decker’s approach to fitness is to workout anywhere — except at the gym. She has a routine that includes simple moves so she can do them literally anywhere, including in the kitchen while she’s making dinner.

Mom Power

After having a baby, Decker originally worried about getting her shape back, but then she snapped out of it and realized that there is more to life than looking hot in a bikini. She says becoming a mom actually made her feel more confident about her body.

Don’t Rush It

Decker’s advice to moms is to lose weight gradually rather than expecting instant results.

Energizer Bunny

Decker did a workout with her husband Eric and his trainer, and while Eric was puffing, she was not.

Reasonable Dose

Decker does a formal routine at least 2-3 times per week. Her exercises of choice are circuit training and weightlifting, and she likes them because they are quick and effective. She only spends 20-30 minutes working out.

Mini Workouts

Decker devises micro workouts, such as 10 push-ups and 10 jumping jacks, and just does several rounds of that whenever she has a few minutes.

The Best Part

Decker is happiest when her exercise session is over. She also takes it as a good sign when she feels a little sore the next day.
