Queen Latifah has officially signed on to be Jenny Craig's next celebrity spokesperson. Her campaign will not focus on getting into a particular dress size or losing a specific amount of weight, but will be about creating a "healthful lifestyle."
Queen Latifah says, “I am taking the first step to improving my health by announcing my goal to lose 5-10% of my body weight with Jenny Craig. My hope is to help educate people and motivate others to take their first step to have a positive impact on their health. By losing just 7% of your body weight, and increasing weekly activity, you can lower the risk of developing type II diabetes by 58%.” FYI, Queen's grandmother died from Type II Diabetes, and Queen was the spokesperson for the Be Aggressive! Control Type 2 Diabetes campaign.
Your Two Cents: Do you think it is disappointing that Queen Latifah, someone who has always said how proud she is of her fuller curvy figure is promoting a weight loss program and "selling out" or do you find that her promotion of Jenny Craig is inspiring in that even if one if proud of her fuller figure it's still good to have help to lose weight to prevent diseases like Diabetes of Heart disease?
