Jessica Alba Weight Loss

The Jessica Alba weight loss controversy has been stirring around in the news recently. Jessica Alba shared a picture on herself Instagram. While filming a movie in Thailand, the tweet showed dramatic weight loss. This included a “bony” ribcage that caused quite the uproar.

Her worst critics have even called Jessica Alba’s body “skeletal.” Critics claim the current Jessica Alba weight loss picture is too extreme. This is especially true, they say, for a mother of two. They question the body image she is portraying to her daughters Honor and Haven, 5 and 2.

Supporters for Jessica Alba are happy for her. Posting a picture having fun, and looking healthy, is great. They claim she is just “sucking in” her stomach in the picture because she is also screaming in it.

There’s also a very supportive social scene central to the CrossFit community (versus the competition for equipment you’ll find at a local gym).

Jessica Alba Wears Corset For Weight Loss

Jessica Alba wore a corset for 3 months to aid in her weight loss. She did this after both pregnancies to lose weight. About wearing the corset, Jessica Alba says:

I wore a double corset day and night for three months. It was sweaty, but worth it. It was brutal, it’s not for everyone.

The corset was made by a company called Glamour Boutique. Most doctors agree there is little evidence that wearing a corset can help you lose weight. Wearing tight clothing won’t deter fat stores on your body.

Still, less is known about why wearing a corset for weight loss may be successful. The truth is that there may a be a psychological effect from wearing a corset. Wearing a corset also makes you become fixated on your goal of weight loss.


Doing something as dramatic as wearing a corset helped Jessica Alba. When all she wanted to do was get rid of the corset, it became a reminder of her weight loss goals. Jessica Alba knew she had to stick to a proper diet and exercise routine

If she didn’t, she was never going to be able to take the corset off. Jessica found that the corset served a purpose, with it: you’re less likely to reach for something bad to eat. It has a certain way of applying pressure to you, and reminding you about your dietary goals.

Jessica Alba Workout Motivation

On workout out, Jessica Alba workout motivation comes from her friends. In a Women’s Health interview, Jessica talked about having a support network so that working out is fun. Or, at least a little more bearable.


My favorite workouts usually include my friends. I think working out really boring. And, I kind of hate it. So, as long as my friends are there, and we can laugh, it makes the time fly by.

On Live with Kelly and Michael, Jessica Alba admitted that she also works out to relieve stress. Alba says that if she’s not with her friends, she needs a constant distraction to work out. Jessica Alba opts for “live TV or listening to loud hip-hop” she says.

Alba also likes to eat, especially her kids leftovers. Between the stress of running a company, acting and having a family, Alba looks for something to keep her on-the-ball, and focused. Working out does just that. This is how Jessica Alba says she is able to balance everything in her life!
