COMING CLEAN: How Does Jennifer Hudson Maintain Her Weight Loss?

Jennifer Hudson has a hot new album to match her new haircut and she’s dishing details on her style secrets.

The singer/actress has maintained her 80-pound weight loss for years and told Yahoo Style how she managed to keep the extra pounds from creeping back.

“I throw the pancakes across the room! I don’t let the food intimidate me. If it’s too much, I just get rid of it, but I make sure to watch what I put in my body. And I make sure I know what it is.” she said.

“It’s all about portions for the most part. I just take care of myself in that way, being more conscious. I don’t work out a lot, but I do like to be active. Simple as that.”

Despite her self-discipline, she still indulges in her favorite food–chocolate.

“I always have to have chocolate around — it’s my cigarette. I don’t smoke but it calms me so well. I don’t like too much junk in my dressing room because I have to watch what I eat, so I put everything else out of the room.”

She also opened up about her decision to chop off her locks and sport a bold pixie-cut.

“I’m random so I just had a random thought. I say that because normally when a woman decides to cut her hair, it takes a long time to make that decision — you ponder on it, you ask people ‘What do you think, how do you feel, should I cut it?’ and you’re always a little wary. Not for me,” she said.

“In that instant, in that thought, I was like ‘Okay. I want to cut my hair. Let’s do it.’ I was on a flight and then like the next day or so I was like, ‘Fly the hairdresser in. I want to chop it all off.’”

If she had it her way, J-Hud would have cut her hair even shorter than it is.

“I wanted to go to the extreme. I actually, originally, wanted it much shorter,” she admitted.

“Then my hairdresser was like ‘That’s a bit drastic, Jennifer.’ I feel as though when you wear short hair it’s more about your presence.”
