Britney Spears flashed her washboard abs in an Instagram selfie while shopping at a Las Vegas clothing boutique.
In the photo, Britney snaps a selfie while looking in a mirror wearing a tiny crop top that spotlights her flat abs.
Spears, who recently posted a series of bikini photos on Instagram, is in fantastic shape after losing a few pounds recently.
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 hates to diet, but loves to work out, saying it prevents depression and controls her anxiety.
“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.
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.
Other celebrities who have lost weight on a low carb diet include Kendra Wilkinson, who lost 55 pounds, and Kim Kardashian, who lost 65 pounds in 6 months with the Atkins diet.
The 5-foot-2 Kim, who weighed 200 pounds while pregnant, now weighs 135 pounds and hopes to reach her goal weight of 120 this summer.
