Jada Pinkett Smith's Shocking Revelation About Food

You’ve seen the slim and gorgeous Jada Pinkett Smith on the red carpet (most recently promoting Madagascar 3 – see pic below), out with husband Will Smith and her children and may wonder how in the world does this woman, at 40, manage to keep her fabulous frame?

“I don’t eat for pleasure,” she tells Essence. What?! According to Jada her West Indian grandmother gets all the credit,

She explains, “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.”

With young children we’re sure it’s hard to maintain a strict diet so Jada does indulge in french fries and pizza every so often but she’s right back when it relates to work,

“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.”

More kudos to you Jada!
