“Daily exercise is important for me both mentally and physically,” said Spears, who recently released The Essential Britney Spears.

Britney said her metabolism slowed down after two pregnancies, but a low carb diet and cardio exercise help her maintain her weight loss and stay toned.

Spears usually runs on the treadmill or the elliptical trainer at home to burn calories and keep her legs and butt taut.

Britney loves high carb, sugary foods but usually follows a low carb diet, especially when she wants to slim down, TheImproper reported.

Low carb, high-fat 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, author of New Atkins For A New You.

Dr. David Ludwig, author of Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, agrees. Ludwig lost 20 pounds in 3 months on a low-carb diet without feeling hungry or counting calories.

Low carb diets keep blood sugar stable and suppress appetite, said Dr. Ludwig, a physician and Harvard nutrition professor.

Studies also show low-carb, high-fat diets enhance mood and curb depression.
