Jennifer Hudson shrunk from a size 16 to 6 after teaming up with Weight Watchers in 2010 and she’s since maintained her 80-pound weight loss. In a recent interview with the U.K. television show, Lorraine, she said one of the keys to maintaining her impressive weight loss is follow common sense when it comes to meal timing. “I’m very careful and cautious of what I’m eating,” she said. “If it’s early in the morning, [I tell myself] ‘OK, I would still be asleep right now, So I’m not going to eat.'” And although she didn’t cite specific hours during which she eats or fasts, the approach follows recent research that suggests limiting your eating hours can protect you from weight gain.
