Jennifer Widerstrom

Jennifer Widerstrom from NBC’s Biggest Loser is teaching fitness by practicing what she preaches.

A former American Gladiators star, she’s known for her ripped physique and athletic skills. But she’s recently experienced an enlightenment that’s made her think as much about what she’s lifting with her fork as what she’s lifting on the barbell.

“I try to eat more green stuff now. I’d be really good and then be really bad. Now I’m more consistent. Like for lunch today, I’m going to get a vegetarian wrap with lettuce, where before I would have gotten a fried chicken sandwich and fries … because that’s the way I feel today,” she says.

“After 18 years of raising hungry boys in my kitchen, I seldom have leftovers when pasta water and butter are paired as the base of a sauce,” Batali said.
