Diet planning, healthy sweet treats and getting back to basics – these are the ways that some of the most beautiful women in the world stay healthy and slim.
Celebrities often seem to have the secrets to staying lean and fit all year round. How do they do it?
Here are 7 Healthy celebrity WEIGHT LOSS tips that actually work:
1. Be active even in your ‘down time’
Exercise doesn’t have to be limited to the gym. Choose to spend recreational time doing things that are active to keep your body healthy and burn a few extra calories.
Kristen Bell says she spends lots of time with her friends playing games like ultimate Frisbee and going hiking or bicycle riding – fun activities that also give you a workout, and a dose of vitamin D from the sun.
2. Eat (a little of) everything
Drew Barrymore says she likes to allow herself to eat anything, but with that freedom comes the responsibility to only eat a little of everything.
Portion control is a huge part of being successful on a diet. And if you allow yourself to have a little bit of your favourite food you’ll often find that just a small taste is enough to satisfy you.
3. Get the basics right
Lean protein and lots of vegetables and fruit.
That’s the foundation of Jessica Alba’s plan for losing weight and keeping it off. To be honest, this is the bottom-line for ANYONE who wants to lose weight.
4. Use your favourite clothing as a measuring tape
Kim Catrall has a pair of jeans that fit perfectly when she is in her best shape.
She uses the way these jeans fit as a way to measure her physical situation, and adjusts her eating accordingly. I think everyone has THAT item that only really looks great when you’re in top shape. Use it!
5. Have a healthy sweet treat
Lisa Rinna takes care of her sweet cravings with a sliced apple and some natural peanut butter.
It’s great because it’s totally healthy but tastes like it isn’t. Just don’t eat the whole tub of peanut butter…
6. Get rid of stress
Exercises like yoga are great for getting in shape and reducing stress – which is vital to the weight loss process.
Carmen Electra swears by her yoga routine for this exact reason. Whatever you use to do it, find a way to relax and you’ll see the weight begin to come off.
7. Preparation is key
Jennifer Garner realises the need for carbohydrates in her diet – as should we all.
However, just because you are eating potato doesn’t mean it has to be deep fried. How you prepare your food is as important as what you eat.
