Britney Spears showed off her washboard abs in a sexy workout photo she shared with fans on Twitter.
“Enough said,” Britney wrote in the caption to the photo, in which she wore a black cutoff shirt emblazoned with the words “Mean People Suck.”
Spears, who was fat-shamed after gaining a few pounds several months ago, looks as slim as ever.
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.”
The mom of two said it has been harder to stay thin after two pregnancies, but a low-carb diet coupled with cardio exercise keep her fit. Britney usually runs on the treadmill or the elliptical trainer at home.
Britney previously said sticking to a diet is hard because she loves high-calorie, sugary foods. However, Spears generally follows a low carb diet, and these days has become partial to sushi, 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.
A California woman recently lost 92 pounds in 10 months without exercise by following the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet.
Suzanne Ryan previously weighed 289 pounds and lost 92 pounds in 10 months by following the ketogenic diet, which is a very low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein diet.
The 5-foot-11 Ryan, who now weighs 197 pounds, was just about to get gastric bypass surgery before adopting the keto diet.
“When I first started keto I weighed 289 pounds, my energy level and self esteem were both at an all time low,” said Ryan. “I felt tired and sick a lot of the time. Thankfully the ketogenic diet has turned my life around.”
Dr. Westman, director of the Duke University Obesity Clinic, has helped thousands of people lose hundreds of thousands of pounds on the ketogenic diet.
Eating fat doesn’t make you fat, Dr. Westman said in Keto Clarity. To the contrary, eating fat makes you thin and healthy.
“I tell my patients not to fear the fat,” said Westman. “Eat lots of fat. There’s no problem with fat.”
