5 Reasons Why We Love Jamie Eason

Jamie Eason, the smiling face of Lean Body for Her, has been my favorite fitness role model for a few years now. I used to have a picture of her as my desktop on my computer as inspiration during my 40 lb. weight loss journey. 

From learning about her personal testimony that lead to her changing her entire lifestyle to following her throughout her daily personal life, Jamie is so open with her fans and shows that there's more that meets the eye than just a pretty face and a hot bod.

1. She did not let breast cancer slow her down & is an advocate for breast cancer research.
During Jamie's early career as an NFL cheerleader for the Houston Texans, she discovered a lump in her breast. She went for a checkup and soon learned that the lump was actually cancer. She had a lumpectomy to remove the cancerous tissue and all was well again. However, this scare prompted Jamie to change her ways. Jamie admits that she was "skinny" fat and loved to eat goldfish & fast food as well as drinking Dr. Pepper. She knew she needed to change her health habits for good! This lead to her becoming a  fitness model and a spokesperson for

2. She is a hands-on mom & wife.
Jamie shared the news of her engagement with her longtime boyfriend on her Facebook page with us. Then she shared her beautiful fairytale wedding in photos with the world, and finally, the very exciting announcement of her expecting her very first child! It is nice to see that even with her busy career, she puts God, her son, and husband first.

3. She is very open about her diet plan & workouts and encourages that we can reach our goals, too!
According to, in an interview, Jamie stated that this was her diet plan before a shoot-and that it honestly was not much more different than how she eats any other day:
6 a.m. - 5 egg whites and 1/3 cup oatmeal
9 a.m. - 5 egg whites and avocado scramble with 1/2 grapefruit
12 p.m. - 4 oz. to 5 oz. of homemade turkey meatloaf and a cup of greens
3 p.m. - 1 cup fat-free cottage cheese topped with wheat germ and a few almonds with 1/2 grapefruit
6 p.m. - Homemade turkey chili with beans over a cup of spaghetti squash and green beans
9 p.m. - 5 egg whites with 1/2 cup chopped zucchini and 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
As for her daily meal plan, it looks like this (in her own words):
6 a.m. - Half a cup of oatmeal and five egg whites with chopped bell peppers and onions
9 a.m. - 4 to 5 ounces of homemade turkey meatloaf with a side salad and cherry tomatoes
12 p.m. - Five ounces of stir-fried chicken with half a cup of brown rice and steamed veggies
3 p.m. - Two corn tortillas topped with black beans, pepper, onions and five ounces of grilled chicken.
6 p.m. - Homemade Italian turkey zucchini burger with pita, lettuce and tomato
9 p.m. - 1/2 cup fat-free cottage cheese with cinnamon, Truvia and a few almonds.

4. She loves to interact with her fans. 
If you write Jamie a letter or email, chances are, she will usually write back! In her own words, Jamie said in an interview with "“I spend entire days answering the emails, messages and comments I receive. I do my best to answer as many people as I possibly can. I'm always flattered when I hear the phrase; I want to be the next Jamie Eason. If that really is someone's goal or they just want to be healthier, I want to do all I can to help.”

5. She is just like you & me! And she reminds us of that.
If you follow Jamie on her Facebook page, then you know that she is very open, honest, and loves to be herself-and shares that contagious personality with everyone! Jamie shows her quirky and playful side and does not hold back.

From sharing her fitness & diet tips with us to encouraging and motivating us to become the best version of ourselves-and everything in between- we cannot help but fall in love with Jamie!
