Celebs Fight the Flab

Celebs Fight the Flab
by Perry EstelleQuestion: Why do we always buy into the whole diet thing, only to lose pounds proudly, and then at the ideal weight, then quit diet, and in just a few short weeks, pile it all on again, when hitherto, it took you, your entire life to get to your size, BEFORE the damned diet in the first place?

Maybe, we should just follow that star! No, not the North star! That isn’t going anywhere. I mean celebs? They always look like demi gods, well, until they open their mouths! But, hey, they have all the time and money in the world to look fabulous…

Take ‘Shakira’ for instance. After accepting countless awards at music ceremonies, there is nothing nicer than, jumping into her Maserati and get home to her plush LA apartment, where she slowly disrobes (steady fellas!) takes a look in the mirror, and thinks, “How will I lose that $500 dollar champagne off my hips? Because……. ‘my hips don’t lie…… Shakira, Shakira’?”

Does she text her personal trainer to drop everything? (Steady, Girls!) and arrive in seconds to give her a hard, hot and sweaty workout? Or, maybe cancel her shopping trip at Sears, and slip into her favourite health spa, with a skinny Latte and full body massage?

Here is a thing? When you are a celebrity these days, you don’t have to stay in shape with just an out of control eating disorder anymore. Celebs are growing up, and not throwing up.

They have their own masseuses, dietitians, health counsellors, weight-losing fashion designers, hypnotherapists, and probably their own Shaman, or ascending master, to teach them ways to lose weight, by instead of lifting weights, just lifting their consciousness, instead.

Mind over matter or NLP is apparently fat burning!

Making them ‘One with Themselves’.

Wait! Is that just another celeb multi-personality mental health issue in the house? Sorry, they have enough money to pay for the pain. No pain, no gain.

So, I made it my mission to skulk around in bushes, outside their Beverly Hills homes, to spy on what they eat. With my night vision camera, I picked up some pretty interesting facts. Here is my research, on how to keep skinny the Hollywood way!

  1. Jennifer Aniston

The star of the phenomenal television show Friends not only mesmerized audiences with her adorable comic sense and her famous hairstyle, she was also known for having one of the sexiest bodies in Hollywood, as she appeared in countless magazine covers. To stay trim, Jennifer follows the 40:30:30 diet method. The diet consists of:

40% Low glycemic carbohydrates

-Foods such as beans, fruits and vegetables, legumes

30% lean proteins

-Tofu, fish, chicken, turkey, beef and low fat dairy products

30% essential fats

-nuts and seeds, fish and olive oils

It is essential that every meal should contain macronutrients to attain the balance of hormones and maximum weight loss.

  1. Kate Hudson

The gorgeous daughter of actress Goldie Hawn gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy, which she needed to shed quickly before commencing on her next film. >From her previous eating plan, she switched to a higher protein diet. She consumed high protein meals in smaller portions, and she combined this diet with an exercise program that includes weight training and cardiovascular workouts. After getting a lot of flak because of her post-pregnancy figure, Kate removed all that baby weight in only four months and has gained abdominal muscles that gained the envy of many in Hollywood.

  1. Oprah Winfrey

As one of the most successful talk-show hosts in the world, there is no question that Oprah needs to maintain her physical appearance for her millions of audiences. Known as one of those celebrities who are constantly battling weight gain, she has recently toned up her figure and has never looked figure in age 50 by combining a regular exercise regime and diet plan. Oprah works out five days a week, spending 30 minutes on the threadmill and doing free weights. Her eating plan consists of legumes, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables, chicken and dairy products that are lowfat. She limits her consumption of white sugar and flour. Oprah also credits her trim figure to her habit of not eating anything after seven in the evening.

  1. Gwyneth Paltrow

A lot of people may find it hard to believe that the perpetually slim Academy award-winning actress actually needs to diet. Gwyneth actually follows a healthy eating plan that resembles Oprah’s, avoiding sugar and white flour. She usually follows a macrobiotic diet, eating foods like vegetables, brown rice, and lean meat. She also eliminated dairy from her diet, and does yoga everyday.

  1. Madonna

The pop star known as the Material Girl has always flaunted a body that is to die for, and has become a true fitness paragon over the years. She keeps herself in tip-top shape by having Ashtanga Yoga, and follows a strict diet that mostly shuns junk foods. She adopted a macrobiotic eating plan that includes organic foods rich in lean protein.

  1. Claudia Schiffer

The bodacious German supermodel eats salad and steamed vegetables for dinner and eats only fruits before the afternoon. While on locations, she prefers to eat black grapes and drinks tomato juice and herbal tea.

  1. Christie Brinkley

Long-time supermodel maintains her all-American good looks by being a vegetarian. She does not keep junk foods of any kind inside her home to make sure that she does not eat them when cravings occur. She snacks on sweet potatoes in place of candy bars, and she adopts a liquid juice diet when she needs to slim down fast.

That’s it! Oh! I also caught Bruno Marrs with a Mars bar!

I lied about having a night vision camera, but I must change the scope on that rifle;)

Remember: You don’t have to be famous to be happy and healthy or even eat well. Celebrate yourself. Love yourself.

Your body will tell you everything you need to know if you nourish it properly, whatever your weight! It’s good food in moderation that loses weight and moderate exercise, like 30 minutes swimming or cycling. Just enough exercise to make you warm, but still enable you to make conversation. Take the stairs guys! Especially, if theres pizza up there! Only joking!
