Jessie James Decker credits the South Beach Diet for her weight loss

In early March 2021, Jessie James Decker introduced Kittenish's swimwear line, as reported by the Daily Mail. Naturally, this career move has given her ample opportunity to flaunt her incredibly fit shape with her Instagram fans.

In under a year after giving birth to son Forrest Bradley, Decker lost a whopping 25 pounds, according to Us Weekly. In 2019, the singer and entrepreneur credited her weight loss to going on the South Beach Diet, for which she has become an ambassador, as per Yahoo! Lifestyle. According to the outlet, Decker opened up about having her self-esteem tested after having her children: "I got up to 165 pounds with my first baby and being 5'1″ it was really hard on my frame, and I definitely struggled self-esteem-wise. I wish I would have known about the South Beach Diet then."

In addition to following the South Beach Diet, Decker also noted (via Us Weekly) that she works out frequently, preferring "quick" and "high intensity" routines as she wants to grow muscle mass, as well, adding that "being skinny" isn't her goal. "For me, I feel good being healthy and feeling fit. I prefer to have a little extra meat on my bones and muscle tone so that I have the strength to pick up and play with my kids," Decker said.
