'Sadly, after a few short weeks or even a few months they unfortunately QUIT! They felt defeated because they couldn’t master the exercises fast enough or didn’t see results as soon as they would have liked and they gave up.

'Whether a new workout, a new eating plan or an attempt to do yoga or meditation, we have become a society addicted to the quick fix and we want results before we even start to get good ??

'I totally understand that feeling. Finding the energy to continue when you see little results is tough and can be very discouraging.'

She added: 'I encourage you to not give up and STICK WITH IT!'

The Monster's Ball actress - who has 10-year-old daughter Nahla with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and son Maceo, four, with her former spouse Olivier Martinez - recently spoke about her first job, revealing she got fired as a bartender for making drinks too strong.

She said: 'I wasn't even old enough to be a bartender. I was in a big city, and I was 19 years old,' according to Entertainment Tonight.

'I wasn't very good, but I ended up being good because I would say, 'OK, so what do you want?' And they would say, Sex On The Beach,' and I would say, 'Interesting, what is that' And they would tell me, and I would just start pouring.

'I put way too much alcohol in everything, so imagine the tips I got, but I lost my job in about three months.

'They were going through liquor like you would not believe.'
