Here we review the training tips, routines and diet of celebrities, celebrity trainers and celeb lifestyle.

Fergie Drops 17 Lbs

After putting on 17 pounds for the movie Nine, Fergie learned it takes a lot longer to lose weight than it does to gain. Yes, it’s very true. Apparently, Fergie really has been “working on her fitness”….after a free for all with Salma Hayek on the set of Nine. Fergie says, “We were eating our brains out. We ordered everything fried and full of fat and salty.”

The extra poundage is nowhere to be seen on Fergie’s gorgoeus bikini cover shot, and the singer credits working out with her hot husband’s trainer for getting her super-toned body back. In her interview for its May issue of Allure, Fergie said,”If I don’t do sit-ups, my stomach sticks out. Legs are easy for me. That’s my lucky spot.”

Well, it’s a little reassuring to know that taut tummy doesn’t come without hard work. Do you have one area that you can count on to look good without much effort, like Fergie and her stems? And gifted gams they are….

LOVE Kathy Griffin!

“It turns out that I have a way hotter body than she does, and that’s been tough for her.” So says Kathy Griffin of Paris Hilton. You go Kathy for being a total cougar. Word up.

Sandra Bullock Diet and Exercise

Looking chiseled, as usual

Looking chiseled, as usual

Sandra Bullock, always charmingl-y candid and real, reveals her reasons and methods for staying in shape, and gives us insight to what her cheat day looks like.  Always one to be honest, it sounds like, just like everyone else, there is no magic pill or secret weight loss miracle. Being extremely active with lots of cardio and weight training, and a super clean diet is the key to her amazing figure, even in her 40’s!

Highlights of the interview:

I read once you have a “cheat day” once a week when you eat whatever you want. Do you still follow that rule?

  

How do you stay in shape?

  

What do you tell a girl who feels ugly because she’s not blond or doesn’t have a thin nose

 

“Welcome to my broken nose! [Her sister accidentally broke it while lifting a garage door when they were younger.] …I was rejected in school because I didn’t look like the big-breasted, beautiful girls. I was awkward and sad. My mother always said, “Be original!” but I didn’t understand until I changed to be like everyone else. Once I fit in, I was like, What have I done? I realized that my friends before were much cooler, with a great sense of humor and a way of looking at the world that was more fun. But if I hadn’t gone through that, I wouldn’t have been driven to make my oddities cool. It’s what made me have a sense of humor and thick skin. It’s like in All About Steve—I’m making fun of everything people have judged me for and put it into one character.”

“People ask, “How do actresses do it?” Um, they pay us to do this in order to look good on film. I do Pilates, kickboxing, weight training. When I’m in Austin, I run or ride a bike. If I can work out every day, I will. But there are times when I won’t do anything for two weeks, and I’m, like, you know what? I talk enough to burn calories.”

“I start Friday night and I end Saturday night. But it is not so regimented. I’ll make lists of what I want to eat this week or next week. I was in the store Marfa and they had this dark chocolate with bacon in it so I’ve gotta try that! I eat really well because I can afford to. Like last night I had brown rice and black beans and some steamed vegetables so today I’m going to have all kinds of good stuff! I love sweets, like Viennese pastry, raw cookie dough, or a nice bowl of Lucky Charms with milk that I eat in bed watching SNL. That’s heaven right there!”

 

Slim and Sporty Sandra

Slim and Sporty Sandra

Once again, refreshing to know that even girls like Sandy break down and scarf cookie dough every once in a while. Just so long as it’s once a week, and in reasonable moderation. I am looking forward to my cheat day already. Haha

Eva Longoria’s Diet and Fitness for A Bikini Worthy Body

In St. Tropez with Hubby

In St. Tropez with Hubby

Eva Longoria is a total fox, and based on her pics, we can see she works hard to stay in tip top shape for us all to behold. Does she have to work for that body? The answer is YES!

Eva is more knowledgeable than your average celeb when it comes to fitness: The 31-year-old is a former aerobics instructor and has a degree in kinesiology from Texas A & M University-Kingsville. These days she gets her expert moves, as well as her motivation, from Los Angeles trainer Patrick Murphy, with whom she works out for one hour, three times a week. “Sometimes Pat literally has to drag me out of bed,” she says. As a mother of a 3 year old, I know exactly how she feels!

Get some of his expert moves off this website where several mini-workouts are featured.

http://www.exercisetv.tv/trainer.aspx?id=820427897

Eva warms up for 10 minutes on the bike or the treadmill and then focuses on strength training. “Each session we do between 25 and 30 total-body exercises–lunges with torso twists and one-legged squats with clean and press, for example–with 30- to 45-second rests in between,” says Patrick, who uses tools , which test endurance while increasing strength and balance. Eva says she’s seen the most results focusing her efforts behind her: “With all the lunges, squats and leg presses I’ve done in the last two months, I think I’ve gained an inch of muscle in my butt.”

THE  DIET

To keep her energy up after the gym, Eva has a hearty, protein-packed breakfast. “I love egg whites,” she says. “My mom made them for me when I was little.” Raised on a ranch in Corpus Christi, Texas, Eva learned early to love fresh fruits and vegetables and healthy cooking, including Tex-Mex specialties like tacos and tortilla soup. “When I don’t have time to cook, I still squeeze fresh lemon on cucumber slices,” she says. “It’s a Mexican delicacy.”

Eating right is made easy on the Desperate Housewives set, Eva says, because the cast and crew prefer fruit, salads and meals made with lean proteins and whole grains.

But the actress does keep it real–and yes! she indulges. “Chocolate-chip cookies are my weakness, and I eat pizza often–sometimes twice a week,” Eva says. “I know my body craves what it needs, and sometimes it needs pizza!” I am pretty sure she eats very healthy and in moderation most of the time.

TOTAL RELAXATION

On her rare days off, Eva recharges by sleeping late, flipping through paperbacks on the private balcony off her bedroom–Candace Bushnell’s Lipstick Jungle is a recent favorite–or catching an early movie. “When I really want to reward myself, I get a relaxing massage,” she says. Her favorite way to spend her weekend is with her boyfriend, 6-foot-2-inch San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker–either snuggling under a blanket while watching a basketball game or de-stressing together in Eva’s home spa.

 

Things Eva loves:

Borba Skin Balance Aqua-Less Crystalline packets ($28 for 14 packets; borba.net) “I drink this when I’m on set.”

Bebe Sport workout gear ($69; bebe.com) “They have really sexy cuts–I actually look forward to putting this on!”

Yoplait Strawberry Yogurt (69 cents; at grocery stores nationwide) “This fuels my early-morning gym session.”

Nike Zoom Percept ($100; nikewomen.com) “I have a high arch, and these give me great support.”

ON EVA’S PLAYLIST NOW

“I love happy music–especially anything ’80s.”

* Madonna, Like a Virgin

* The Cars, Heartbeat City

* Prince, Purple Rain

* Cyndi Lauper, She’s So Unusual

* Air Supply, Lost in Love

GET RESULTS WITH THIS

“Standing on a balance tool forces Eva to stabilize her core–and use muscles she normally wouldn’t–in every move we do,” says trainer Patrick Murphy. “If she does squats with one of these under each foot, her obliques and lower back work to keep her balanced.”

VersaDisc ($20; power-systems.com) “Doing lunges on this has changed the look of my abs–without crunches!”

Britney Spears Pays Quarter of A Million Annually for Sexy Shape

Britney wraps up final leg of her US tour for Circus with a Bahamas vacation

Britney wraps up final leg of her US tour for Circus with a Bahamas vacation

Britney looks fantastic now for her Circus tour, after a few years of struggling to get her life in order and body back into shape after the birth of her sons. I, for one, am really proud of her. Life can be messy, and living in the spotlight only makes that mess very public, so my heart goes out the her. I hope her new healthy body is a reflection of other healthy changes that we all end up needing to make as women and mothers and adults….anyhoo…enough of that. Here’s the lowdown…

We hear that Britney shells out a total of nearlt $23,000 a month to get her body back in shape. She pays $4,ooo for a private dance choreographer, $8,000 to work with elite celebrity trainer James Van Daff who also trains the Pussycat Dolls.  She thens shells out another whoping $10,ooo for diet supplements and a nutritionist. A source says “She changed the way she eats. Portion control and fresh food” are what she is focusing on.

Reportedly, Britney limits herself to about 1400 calories a day, eating steamed fish as frequently as possible and swaping water for Red bull. Once a week she has cheat days to satisfy cravings she may be having during the week.

Cheryl Burke Bikini Body

Last summer

This week

This week

Last October, Cheryl Burke defended her curvy figure when bloggers slammed her for gaining weight. Ummm, yeah, Cheryl was a size 4, so I don’t understand why anyone in their right mind could call her fat, but whatever. Regardless, new photos of the Dancing with the Stars beauty in St. Lucia should silence any critics.

Fresh from a Caribbean vacation with her boyfriend, hottie model Maxwell Zagorski, Burke, 25,  says that shedding the pounds and maintaining her ideal weight  has been relatively simple.

“I gained a few pounds and everybody was talking about it last year,” the two-time Dancing winner says. “But taking it off was simply a matter of doing a bit more cardio to supplement my dancing. I’m also making sure I eat clean foods and healthy snacks.”

She attributes her healthier diet to boyfriend Zagorski. “He’s a much better cook than I am and it helps when we eat meals together that are healthy as opposed to going out for dinner, which I did a lot when I was single,”  she says.

On Friday night Burke will celebrate the grand opening of her third Cheryl Burke Dance studio, in Mountain View, Calif. Over the summer she’ll be working on designs for her line of fitness wear and wants to develop a line of casual workout shoes. Check out the new studio by following the link.

“There’s this huge explosion of things that have happened in my life in the past three years and I’m so grateful,” Burke says, noting that best of all, more people than ever before are taking up dancing.

“People are seeing that it’s a great alternative to going to the gym,” Burke says. “It’s a great way to do something really healthy for your body and you don’t even know it because you have so much fun doing it.”
 

 I take a ballett class, and several Zumba and Hip Hop classes every week. I completely agree!! I adore them!

Megan Fox Stay Slim Diet and Exercise Secrets

meganfoxWith a body like that, who would think that Megan Fox hates to workout?  Well it’s true!  The “Transformers” actress says, “I’m very lazy. I hire a personal trainer who is supposed to come three times a week. He comes to me – I don’t even have to leave the house. He’ll come to my house and I’ll be lying in the exact same spot he left me in. I’ll be like: ‘Not today! Not today!’ So, for me to do these scenes [in Transformers] was hard but fun.”

The actress spends 30 minutes of her time doing cardio exercises that flatten and tone her abs. She begins with some warm-up movements butterfly crunch or front planks and then she gets down to business with knee-ups, leg swings and ball leg lifts. She then mixes the cardio moves with Pilates or cycling for another 30 – 45 minutes to round out her workout.

As for her diet, Megan is careful about her daily meals and really focuses on eating a healthy breakfast so she has lots of energy and doesn’t overeat later on in the day.  She loves eggs and usually has them every day.  Megan is also a fan of almonds because she knows they contain filling protein and fiber. They’re also a good source of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that might help give her that amazing complexion.  She’s a fan of lean protein sources and eats lots of veggies and fruits to keep her full.

There’s really no big secret here, she just makes good choices and has incorporated them as part of her lifestyle which is truly the secret to staying healthy and slim!
