A slimmed-down Kimora Lee Simmons revealed how she recently lost 25 pounds. Simmons isn’t the only one who’s adopted a fabulously healthy lifestyle. “My family is very healthy. We try to be very healthy with complex carbs, lots of fresh fruits and vegetables,” she said, adding that she encourages her three children to “eat organic, not a lot of dairy.”The model and former Baby Phat president is married toDjimon Hounsou, with whom she has a son 2-year-old son, Kenzo. Her other two children, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, are from Simmons’ previous marriage to Russell Simmons.
“I shed the fat by not eating,” the designer, 35, told PopEater’s Rob Shuter. “But I don’t like to tell the kids that so they think they shouldn’t eat.”The mother of three (two daughters with ex-husband Russell Simmons, and a son with current hubby Djimon Hounsu) went on to slightly amend her comments on her seemingly draconian diet.
“I watch my portions, and I eat leaner proteins and vegetables and stuff like that,” she said, noting some days she’ll limit caloric intake to fruit, smoothies, or protein bars.
The Missouri native revealed that moving to L.A. was the reason for the slim-down.”I was out one night with two famous sisters,” — Simmons told Shuter she didn’t want to say who — “when a bunch of burgers were being passed around. I went to grab one and the two of them looked shocked. They said ‘we don’t eat.’ Then after I grabbed a burger they said they were joking, but I knew they weren’t!”
