Britney Spears showed off her fit physique while performing at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.

Britney grooved on the stage in a body-hugging yellow sequined leotard while singing “Make Me,” the first single off her ninth studio album, Glory.

The previous day, Britney posted several Instagram photos of herself enjoying a leisurely breakfast at Sarabeth’s restaurant in New York.

“Breakfast at #Sarabeths!” Spears wrote on Instagram. “So happy to be back in the Big Apple! ?

Britney looked adorable in the photos, where she wore a body-hugging turquoise tank top and black shorts.

Spears recently enjoyed a sun-splashed vacation to Hawaii, where she showed off her yoga-toned bikini body.

Britney’s weight loss secrets are a low carb diet, yoga workouts and cardio exercise, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

The mom of two loves to eat and hates dieting and counting calories. Fortunately, she enjoys working out, saying it helps ease her anxiety and depression.

Spears usually runs on the treadmill or the elliptical trainer to tone her legs and butt and prevent weight gain.

“Daily exercise is important for me both mentally and physically,” said Spears, who also does lots of yoga.

Yoga promotes natural weight loss, reduces stress, and prevents depression, said Tara Stiles, author of Yoga Cures.

Britney, who loves sweets, fried foods and french fries, typically follows a low-carb diet.

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 Maria Emmerich, author of Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking.

Low carb diets keep blood sugar stable and suppress appetite, said physician Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.

Low-carb, high-fat diets have also been shown to enhance mood and curb depression, added Dr. Westman.

Other celebrities who lost weight on a low-carb diet include Kim Kardashian, who lost 80 pounds in 7 months on the Atkins diet. The 5-foot-2 Kim, who weighed 200 pounds while pregnant, now weighs 123 pounds.
