From her talk show to her concerts to movies, Queen Latifah is known for her warm, witty personality and high level of energy. She recently lost weight, and credits her trainer Jeanette Jenkins for helping her achieve and maintain her royally rocking body.

Jeanette has even appeared on Queen Latifah's talk show to describe her diet tips and fitness secrets for helping you get in your own royal shape. Among her tips:

  • Practice yoga regularly for physical and emotional well-being. You'll gain flexibility while helping to overcome weight concerns such as emotional eating. Work out with Jeanette by using her fitness DVD "The Hollywood Trainer - Power Yoga."
  • Learn to love green vegetables for their nutrient-dense value and low calorie count.
  • When it comes to beverages, yerba mate offers multiple health benefits, while green tea boosts your weight loss.

Let's talk fitness DVDs: We've tried them and agree with Jeanette's celebrity trainers that she knows how to maximize your time for magnificent results (well, we're still working on the "magnificent" part, but we have noted we can now heft two 20-pound containers of cat litter, which impresses the heck out of grocery clerks).

Among our favorites: "Jeanette Jenkins / The Hollywood Trainer: Butt & Thigh Blast DVD" and "Jeanette Jenkins / The Hollywood Trainer: Bikini Bootcamp."
