7 Diet Secrets of
the Stars

Celebrities always look fabulous. Whether appearing in television or
films or strutting down the red carpet during movie premiers and
awards, they never cease to fascinate us with their larger than life
presence.
The truth is, it takes a lot of effort to look the way they
do, and being the public figures that they are, they cannot afford to
slack off when it comes to taking care of their physical appearances.

Their livelihood largely depends on how they look. Aside from the
clothes, the hair and the makeup, celebrities have to take good care of
their bodies.
So it is no surprise that these stars have their own secrets when it
comes to staying fit and gorgeous. Their health agenda can range from
extreme workouts to well-planned meals. Who doesn’t want to know their
secrets in staying absolutely sexy? Here are some of the diet secrets
of seven women celebrities.

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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

 5. 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.

 6. 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.

7. 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.
Celebrities are just like ordinary people. They need to maintain their
figures just like anyone else, and there is more pressure on their part
since they are constantly in the public eye. Ordinary folks can have
celebrity-like bodies, too, and by following these diet and fitness
plans, they can also look like red-carpet worthy.
