Jimmy Jam Weight Loss [Updated]: Diet, Workout, Before and After

Jimmy is an American R&B/Pop songwriter and record producer. It is kind of impossible to mention Jimmy without his music partner, Terry Steven Lewis.

Jimmy and Lewis are friends since high school. Both have achieved success through songwriting and record producing. However, our main focus in this article is Jimmy. 

Jimmy is the master of Piano, Keyboards, drum machines, and synthesizers. With his growing fame and fans, however, Jimmy was facing a problem and was struggling with it. His problem was his weight which was growing with each passing day.

When in 2018 Jimmy appeared on the red carpet with his daughter, Bella, he seemed overweight. However, this all changed in just a few months. When again he appeared on the red carpet, this time with his wife Lisa, fans got shocked.

Jimmy was certainly half of what he used to be 4 months ago. His fans made a trend on social media, presenting their different theories. Some said that he must be struggling with some severe disease and that is why he has lost that much weight. 

However, a fellow singer Keith Sweat made it clear that the change in his body must be because of his diet or workout for his weight loss.

Because it would not be possible otherwise that he lost half of his weight in just a few months. It is apparent that he started his weight loss journey after January 2018 and did great progress between February and June.

How did Jimmy Lose Weight?

Now, the question is, how did Jimmy lose so much weight in a very short time? Most of Jimmy’s life is a secret, he does not disclose much of what is going on in his life. Which is the main reason why his fans make so many assumptions about his life.

After Jam’s fans realized that Jimmy was not struggling with any disease, which of course otherwise the world would have known.

They started making other assumptions. Some of Jimmy’s fans suggested that he must have gone under some weight loss surgery.

Because of the great change in his weight, this assumption makes sense. But after we did our research and started to know about his life it turned out that there wasn’t any surgery behind that. It was his strict routine which included a well-disciplined diet plan and workout that helped him in overcoming his weight.

Diet Plan

Jimmy’s wife, Lisa, remarked his weight loss as a “great job in half of a year”. His diet plan, which he still follows, is mainly comprised of vegetables cooked in olive oil. Following is jimmy’s diet plan in detail:


He wakes up early in the morning between 5 to 6 am after which he goes to a walk. After the walk, Jimmy visits the gym, which we would discuss later, after returning from the gym he eats his breakfast which is merely comprised of salad fried in olive oil. Instead of Coffee or milk tea, Jimmy drinks green tea for breakfast.


For lunch, Jimmy eats different meals, however, his more repetitive meals are composed of Salmon fish and Cruciferous Vegetables.

Although Salmon is a fatty fish it has very few calories. It helps jimmy retain his energy level for a long time. Another advantage of eating salmon for lunch is that it also fulfills your iodine needs.

 Salmon fish mainly contains protein which makes it a healthy diet. While Cruciferous Vegetables contain Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage.

This diet like salmon fish is also full of proteins, thus a healthy choice for a weight loss diet. Cruciferous Vegetables are high in fibre and nutrients which improved Jimmy’s overall health.


During dinner, Jimmy’s main focus is on a unique diet called “Black Bean-Quinoa Buddha Bowl”. This diet merely contains grains, which give strength to the body and help in losing fat. Hence Jimmy’s best choice for dinner.

Workout Plan

As mentioned earlier Jimmy’s personal life is kind of secret. We tried so hard to get success in finding out his diet and we happened to be lucky. However, this luck did not happen in finding his workout plan.

However, we succeeded in reaching one of Jimmy’s fellow gym-goer from whom we found that it is certain Jimmy visits the gym every morning after a walk and spends two hours there.

He said that Jimmy’s main focus is on weight lifting and cycling at a slow speed. That is all we know about his gym life.

How much weight did Jimmy lose?

In a press interview, Jimmy’s wife Lisa informed that in a few months of strict diet and intense workout Jimmy has managed to lose 25 pounds! Which is of course a great deal.

Before and After Weight Loss

As it can be seen from the first photo (which was captured in January 2018) in which Jimmy is present with his daughter at a red carpet event and looks very healthy.

However, the story is totally changed in the second photo which was captured in June 2018. Jimmy’s hard work can be traced from the difference between the two photos. 

Where is he now?
