How do celebrities lose weight?

Ever wonder how celebrities acquire beautiful bodies even if some of them previously do not have them? Let’s face it; losing weight is no overnight magic. Even celebrities have to spend weeks for it, and you have to undergo the process too to acquire the figure you want. Here are some of the secrets celebrities used in losing weight that are actually healthy and effective.

Eat less but eat healthy. This doesn’t mean that you have to stop eating and go hungry. You’ll just end up 180° from your goal to shape up. Severe fasting can lead your body to decrease its metabolic rate but increase its ability to store fats. It also results to easy fatigability and excessive cravings which are not healthy. While celebrities go on diets; there are many types of diets adhered by different Hollywood stars but the principle behind all of them is that your intake of calories is less than the amount you expend everyday but never starving yourself.

Drink up. Drinking water doesn’t only make you feel less hungry; it also refreshes your body by flushing out impurities, aiding your digestion and speeding up your metabolism. Moreover, it doesn’t give you the extra calories found in sodas, and coffee.

Be more active – exercise! Have you ever seen pictures of celebrities jogging, or walking their dogs or doing special work-out trainings? This is their method of being more active to burn up the calories before they turn into flabby fats. Moreover, exercise makes you feel good about yourself. With exercise, your body is stimulated to release endorphins which make you happy thus decreasing instances for you to sulk and binge over life’s stresses.

Do behaviour therapy. While you slowly unfold the secrets of celebrity weight loss, you’d also learn that they get rid of their bad habits (e.g. smoking, abusing drugs, being alcoholic , etc.) by supplanting them with good ones (e.g. having proper diet, doing exercises, building better coping skills, going on vacations, etc.). This is because they know that losing weight effectively and healthily just isn’t complete without a total behaviour therapy, and which is why you need to know their last but most important secret of all…

Have the will to do it. Celebrities are very determined to lose weight because it is part of their job. Along the way, they influence people to emulate them. That’s why you’re reading this article; because they look good to you and you want look good too. You want to know their methods and you want to try them for yourself. But you have to have their will too. This will propel you to do what it takes to lose weight and feel that celebrity feeling of looking gorgeous like they do.

If you think about these secrets, they are doable. That is why celebrities practising these have high success rates of losing and maintaining weight. So if they can do it, why can’t you?

  • take harbalife.. its a company that ahas healthy food and some of their products reduce the cravings you may have at the same time you remain healthy and less overweigh.

  • I am 20 years old and weigh almost 200 lbs!! I’m only 5 foot so you can see how badly I need to lose this weight. There’s no pressure to lose it but I am really unhappy with the way I look, I never used to be this chubby, but since I got engaged to the love of my life, I let go! I really want to look and feel good not only for him but for myself too. Ive tried dieting and exercising and it worked for a while but with my fiancee and I loving food the way we do it didn’t work. Ive tried pills but I hate the way they make me feel and I can never stick to them. My finances aren’t too great either so I can’t keep wasting my money on things that don’t work. All I want is a fun, easy, and healthy way to lose the weight, I’m at the end of my rope!

  • i have big arms,big tummy,and big butt,i want them reduced,i dont now what to do anymore,since i have tried dieting n exercises before,that only worked for some months.

  • Good article. I follow celebrities a lot so the title is what captured my attention. While all the above is true, I believe that celebrities have huge advantages over the rest of the general population because of their wealth. They are very motivated to stay in a size 2 or 4(for women) because of how “fat” they will look on screen. They have more hours in the day to work out, have personal chefs, personal trainers, personal assistants to run all of their errands and nannies for the children. Alas, more time to workout. I am also sure they have access to pills that the rest of us do not. Now, Oprah and Kirstie Alley are contradictions of what I have just said, but I think they have just given up the battle. Oh, I forgot to add personal chefs to create healthy meals. Just my opinion.

  • I feel you guys’s pain!! when i started college i gained like crazy! [“FRESHMAN FIFTEEN”] they say some thirst can be mistaken for hunger. Whenever I would be bored or for some odd reason i felt extremely hungry i drank an 8 oz class of room temperature water. [cold water is harder for your body to use] and ate a small granola bar with my water. For breakfast i always ate a medium egg scrambled with no ketchup and lunch i did something around a salad and chicken and dinner i just filled in the rest of my calories [i was on a 1500 calorie diet] but i went from 200 lbs to 180 in 2 weeks. im not sure how this will work for you guys but it worked for me (:
