What is Paula Patton’s secret to maintaining her weight?
Celebrity trainer, Jeanette Jenkins, who is the creator of the “Sexy Abs” workout and personal trainer to singer Kelly Rowland is also trainer and nutritionist to Patton.
Jenkins has Patton warm up daily with a two-mile run either on a treadmill or outside followed up with lots of squats and kicks while holding five-pound dumbbells. Pushups, planks and floor ab workouts are Patton’s secret to her lean and toned core.
Jenkins, has trained the actor for the last several years, even while she was pregnant with son. She works with Patton doing yoga, Pilates, hiking and power walking routines. She works two and half-hours, six days a week for a couple of months after the birth of her son, which not only helped her to lose her baby weight quick but also helped her to land the leading lady role in Mission Impossible.
Exercise alone won’t get the pounds off and keep it off. What goes in the body plays a major role. While Patton is not a vegan or vegetarian, she does not eat pork and eats very little beef. Chicken, fish and turkey are her preferred sources of protein.
Her typical day’s meal looks like this.
Vegetable egg-white omelet with sautéed spinach
Green tea with lemon and honey
Turkey sandwich on whole-wheat bread with lettuce, tomato and mustard
Green juice with three handfuls of spinach, one apple, half of a lemon, half of a thumb-size of ginger, one cup of ice and water
Cucumber and tomato salad with feta, olive oil and lemon
Hummus with carrots and celery
Lemon and garlic wild salmon with asparagus and corn
