Vegan Jenna Dewan Tatum is a size zero: Secrets to her 33-pound weight loss

Jenna Dewan Tatum's size-0 post-baby body was the talk of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards.

Dewan Tatum credited a vegan diet and dance workouts for her 33-pound weight loss, which she achieved in just seven weeks. Jenna said her background as a professional dancer enabled her to lose weight in record time.

“I danced for 22 years of my life, hardcore, every day, seven hours a day, so I’m lucky that my body likes to snap back to that shape as long as I put a little effort into it," she said.

In addition to cardio-dance workouts at home, yoga and lots of hiking, Dewan Tatum works out with a trainer several days a week, combining strength-training with aerobic exercise.

Dewan Tatum also incorporates her baby into her home workout routine. "When Everly was born, I was literally rocking her probably 10 times a day for 45 minutes," she said. "And I turned it into a workout, doing squats and lunges around the house.”

Jenna, who has been vegetarian since age 13, said her vegan diet accelerated her weight loss. She said she wants to pass on her healthy eating habits and active liftstyle to Everly.

“I was working out almost every single day or walking or hiking or anything that made me feel good,” she explained. "[It was] good old-fashioned hard work!”

Jenna has been married to actor Channing Tatum since July 2009. She gave birth to their daughter in June 2013.
