Taraji P. Henson
Some celebrities are known for their extreme diets and bizarre eating habits. But you'll be glad to know Taraji P. Henson
is having none of that. In fact, she's one of a few celebrities who loves food—like really loves food.
In fact, if acting doesn't pan out—not that this Oscar nominated actress is going anywhere—Taraji wouldn't mind retiring and traveling the world as a foodie! She says:
I don't really diet because I love food too much. My plan is to retire and become a foodie, a world travelled foodie. I'm going to travel the world and eat in all kinds of different places.
But how does she stay so slim if she's supposedly eating so much? Well, Taraji begrudgingly exercises when she has to. If she's working out a lot, she indulges in cheesecake. If not, then she cuts the bread and carbs and sticks to protein and vegetables. Essentially, she's working out in order to sustain her love for food. What is this magic workout routine you ask? Well, it references Taraji's musical theater past. She says:
I go to the Cardio Bar, it's a franchise. They combine cardio and dance. You do everything at a ballet bar, so you do leg lifts and tendus and you have to do first position plies and you do a lot of them. It keeps you long and lean. Because I can bulk up, I don't like lifting a lot of weights. I don't want to ever look hard, I just want to be toned.
