Britney Spears is a longtime exercise fanatic who works out hard to maintain her fit bikini body.
While Britney usually sticks to a low carb, high-protein diet, she enjoys cheat days, but makes sure to work out afterward, TheImproper reported.
Earlier this week, Spears posted an Instagram video of herself walking on the treadmill while lifting hand weights to burn off the calories she had consumed at the Cheesecake Factory.
“After Cheesecake Factory you do this… Treadmill and weights ?,” Britney wrote.
Spears has been looking fitter than ever this summer, and posted several bikini photos to prove that point.
Spears, who’s in the middle of her Las Vegas residency, has gotten in fantastic shape recently, thanks to her daily dance performances and healthy diet.
Britney’s weight loss secrets are a low carb diet, cardio exercise and yoga workouts, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
The mom of two said her body has changed after two pregnancies, but a low-carb diet coupled with exercise keeps her fit and controls her weight.
Britney, who loves sweets and starchy foods like french fries, typically follows a low-carb diet.
Low carb, high-fat diets like the ketogenic and Atkins diets fuel rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Maria Emmerich, author of Quick and Easy Ketogenic Cooking.
Martina Slajerova, author of The KetoDiet Cookbook, agrees. Low carb diets keep blood sugar stable and suppress appetite, said Slajerova.
Low-carb, high-fat diets have also been shown to enhance mood and curb depression, said Maria.
Other celebrities who have lost weight on a low carb diet include Kim Kardashian, who lost 80 pounds in 7 months on the Atkins diet, TheImproper reported. The 5-foot-2 Kim, who weighed 200 pounds while pregnant, now weighs a slim 120 pounds.
