Jada Pinkett Smith – Weight – Will Smith – –
If only all of our grandmothers were awful cooks, maybe then, would be a size zero?
That’s what I’m thinking after reading that Jada Pinkett Smith finds absolutely no pleasure in eating, claiming it all stemmed from growing up with a grandma that couldn’t cook for crap.
The fantastically fit 40-year-old told Essence magazine, “I don’t eat for pleasure.” Explaining, she says, “I had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don’t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that’s healthy.”
Although Jada, who has been married to actor Will Smith for 15 years, admits she indulges in French fries and pizza every once in a while, she says she can’t make it a habit, as she needs to eat healthy to keep her energy up. “I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face,” she reveals.
As always, Jada is looking smashing. She’s definitely doing something right, but I find it hard to believe that when she does treat herself to that junk food (pizza is the grub of the Gods!), on the very rare occasion that she does, she isn’t in pure heaven. When we deprive ourselves of something, don’t we tend to enjoy it that much more when we get it?
