Britney Spears wowed fans by flaunting her sexy bikini body in a black-and-white Instagram video.

In the grainy video, Britney wears a tiny bikini while seductively writhing around and dancing.

It’s unclear whether Spears is promoting a new music video, a new perfume or some other product, but she looks fantastic after losing weight with a low-carb diet and yoga workouts.

Britney’s weight loss and bikini fitness secrets are a low-carb diet, cardio exercise and yoga workouts, Examiner reported.

Britney said she sometimes has trouble sticking to a healthy diet, but loves to exercise.

“Daily exercise is important for me both mentally and physically,” said Spears, who has her own bestselling perfume line.

“I don’t mind working out. Trainers keep you motivated, but I didn’t have a problem being motivated.”

Britney previously said sticking to a diet is hard because she loves high-calorie, sugary foods. However, Spears generally follows a low carb diet, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

Low-carb diets such as the ketogenic and Atkins diets fuel rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.

Obesity expert Dr. David Ludwig, agrees. “‘Eat less, exercise more’ doesn’t work,” said Ludwig, who has an MD and Ph.D. from Stanford University.

By reducing carbs and eating more healthy fats, you can accelerate weight loss and enjoy consistent energy throughout the day, said Dr. Ludwig, author of Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently.

Ludwig, a physician and nutrition professor at Harvard, said the true cause of weight gain isn’t too many calories, but a diet that’s high in refined carbs and sugars. This is because our body stores fat when we experience insulin spikes, which are caused by eating too much sugar and processed grains like white bread, he said.
