Jessie James Decker's Food Diary Is Filled with 'Protein, Protein, Protein!'
Jessie James Decker is proving she is #allofthegoals.
The country singer, 28, and wife of New York Jets stud Eric Decker, 29, ramped up her diet and exercise plan after having baby no. 2 last September, and is serving up serious fitspiration.
Decker credits her slim-down to intense workouts and a balanced diet filled with protein.
“Never starve yourself!” the 5’1″ Lights Down Low singer tells PEOPLE, and instead urges others to focus on her own motto — “protein, protein, protein!” — to power through the day.
Decker also credits going “all natural” to help shed weight, adding that she used to put processed sweeteners in her coffee, but switched to organic cane sugar to quickly shed her baby weight.
And as for her exercise routine — baby number 2, named Eric after his dad — had a hand in her weight loss.

Jessie does a great job of eating balanced meals with various health benefits, says Atlanta-based dietitian Marisa Moore. “I love that Jessie makes her own salad dressings. Olive oil is an anti-inflammatory choice, and the strawberries are a good source of potassium for healthy blood pressure.” While protein shakes can be a great recovery drink after an intense workout, Moore says, “choose carefully, as they can add sugars and calories.”
