A day with Jessica Simpson’s stomach: what goes in
BY now you’ll be wondering what Jessica Simpson has had for breakfast. One day Jessica Simpson will be like Donna Simpson (no relation), the walking postcode who earns a crust being paid to eat in front of her webcam and then squash people.
But the question remains: is Jessica eating enough to rival 600 pounds of Donna? US magazine has obtained Jessica’ one-day meal planner. Anyone planning to kidnap Jessica, should know that her day is split into seven parts.
7 a.m. Simpson, 32, wakes to feed Maxwell, then eats breakfast: half a Flatout flatbread sandwich with egg whites, peppers and fat-free cheddar (6 PointsPlus). She eats this from the back of a spoon in a single mouthful.
8 a.m. Simpson straps on her pedometer and hits the streets with Johnson and Maxwell. “I’m trying to do at least 14,000 steps a day,” she says. Afterward: a snack of berries, bananas, melon or grapefruit (0 PointsPlus). Jessica is considering upping her step count by moving her hammock further away from Fridge No. 1 and hiding the remote control.
11 a.m. Four days a week, Simpson reports to trainer Harley Pasternak for a 45-minute session. After a cardio warm-up, it’s circuit time: seven sets (up to 30 reps each) of dumbbell triceps extensions, hamstring curls and crunches with a medicine ball throw. “Her waist is going in, and her thighs are growing smaller,” says Pasternak. All the blood is rushing to her feet, her heart is pounding and fish are jumping.
12:30 p.m. If it’s Wednesday, she weighs in at home with her mom and pals. Together they weigh the same as 207 ogen melons – with seeds!
1 p.m. “I make lunch my biggest meal to keep me full through the day,” she says. One favorite: spinach salad with 4 ounces of chicken satay and pear (8 PointsPlus). She then gnaws on the doorframe and eats her toenails.
2 p.m. Stroller walk with Maxwell, or hoof it at home on the treadmill watching 24. Her reward: a WW berry smoothie (3 PointsPlus).
6:30 p.m. Bathtime and bed for Maxwell, then dinner for Mom! It’s often fish (4 ounces of halibut or tilapia) with roasted eggplant, broccoli or asparagus (6 PointsPlus). And for dessert? Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bars (3 PointsPlus).
10 p.m. Lights out.
No longer does her husband have to ask what she did all day. And it will surely catch on. Thanks to Jessica Simpson, Her Majesty The Queen can now sleep in the knowledge that she is not alone. Although until Jessica shows us her cellulite, Queen Bess will continue to look toward Sarah Ferguson for direction…
