Jennifer Hudson Lands Weight-Loss Book Deal

By Radar Staff

Jennifer Hudson is penning a memoir focusing on her weight loss. The diet tell-all will be published by Dutton in January.

There had been rumors, which Hudson’s camp firmly denied, that publishers were shying away from any Hudson book that didn’t focus on the horrifying murders of her mother, brother and nephew in 2008.

And even though it’s well-known that Hudson followed the Weight Watchers plan – she’s one of the company’s most successful spokeswomen ever – the book will detail the back story of how and why Hudson became so heavy and what’s she doing to make sure she doesn’t backslide.

According to a statement from Dutton, “The book will chronicle Hudson’s experience growing up in an environment where healthy living was not a priority, to dealing with talk of her weight as she competed on American Idol and won her first Oscar, to her eventual decision to get healthy after the birth of her son, and her success losing weight with the help of Weight Watchers.

“Now, 80 pounds lighter, Hudson wants to inspire anyone coping with weight issues, share some of her own best tips for losing and maintaining weight loss, fitting in exercise and keeping it fun and much more.”

Hudson has just signed to appear in a new film about the Three Stooges.
