Usually the word “healthy” and “celebrity” aren’t found in the same sentence, but believe it or not there are celebrities who lose weight in a healthy, sensible manner. (Of course, many celebrity’s names are incorrectly linked to certain diets when in truth they have never followed such a diet.) That being said, if you are looking for a role model for a healthy diet, try following in the steps of one of these celebrities.
The most widely known celebrity to achieve healthy weight loss is probably Jennifer Hudson, who lost almost 80 lbs. following the Weight Watchers diet. Although Weight Watchers has evolved over the years from its simple system of a certain amount of servings of protein, bread, fruit, etc., it is still one of the healthiest weight loss diets in existence. Jennifer Hudson lost weight with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise, making her number one on the list of celebrities following a healthy diet. Jenny McCarthy, Sarah Ferguson (the former Duchess of York), and other celebrities have also achieved healthy weight loss through this program.
This starlet is the second celebrity worth mentioning who lost weight on a sensible diet. (It may be up for debate whether Kendra is an actual “celebrity”, but since she has had two television shows she probably qualifies.) Kendra gained forty pounds with her first pregnancy and was determined to take the weight off in a sensible manner. The key to this celebrity’s success? The simple combination of cardio, weight training, and portion control. She also had to make healthier choices, substituting lean meats and salads for cheeseburgers and French fries. To follow in this celebrity’s diet footsteps, try doing 45 minutes of cardio three times a week, and 45 minutes of strength training three times a week. This celebrity workout routine, combined with portion control, should take off any weight you want to lose in no time.
If you have seen photos of LeAnn Rimes’ amazingly toned and sculpted body, you know that this is one celebrity diet that definitely works. LeAnn lost weight by following a low-glycemic index diet, a healthy weight loss plan that consists of foods that keep your blood sugar and insulin levels steady, including lean proteins, fruits and vegetables, whole grains and healthy fats. She also has a healthy celebrity exercise plan that includes, weight training, boxing, and yoga.
Eddie Van Halen’s ex-wife and former star of One Day at a Time (co-starring the troubled Mackenzie Philips), transformed her body in a very healthy manner. This Jenny Craig spokesperson lost weight following the Jenny Craig Diet, which is a very healthy way to lose weight. Consisting of prepackaged meals that are generally about 300-400 calories each, the diet also incorporates fresh vegetables and fruit daily. Weight loss tends to be 1-2 lbs. per week, a respectable but healthy amount. Other celebrity followers of this diet include Queen Latifah and Jason Alexander.
