Posted Sep 14 2008 2:55pm

Gwen Stefani is one yummy mummy - there ain’t no doubt about that (pardon the pun).

With her smoking hot body being photographed all over LA, everyone is asking what is Gwen Stefani’s diet?

Read on to get in on Gwen Stefani’s celebrity weight loss secrets!

gwen stefani diet Gwen has been in the limelight for over a decade now. She first launched on to the world stage in the band No Doubt. They hit the charts with the famous songs ‘Don’t Speak’ and ‘Hey Baby’ and ‘Underneath It All.’

Gwen then went out on her own and released two solo albums Love. Angel. Music. Baby (2004) and The Sweet Escape (2006). She’s had huge success out on her own receiving a Grammy for a duet with rapper Eve and 5 other Grammy nominations. Gwen Stefani has also performed around the world with her The Sweet Escape tour.

Gwen has also pursued interests outside the music realm including her own fashion label L.A.M.B, a perfume called ‘L’ and acting roles including one in The Aviator.

Gwen Stefani is married to hunky British musician Gavin Rossdale, has a son Kingston and one on the way!

Gwen Stefani Diet

Gwen Stefani admits that her physique doesn’t come easy, she work’s for that smoking bod. In fact, Gwen says she’s dieted most of her life in order to keep in tip top shape.

Gwen says, ‘I’ve always been on a diet, ever since I was in the sixth grade. It’s an ongoing battle and it’s a nightmare. But I like clothes too much, and I always wanted to wear the outfits I would make. And I’m very vain!’

Gwen eats very healthy the majority of the time but does allow herself a treat from time to time. She lists the paparazzi on her motivation list and says, ‘if you had paparazzi outside your house, you’d make sure you looked good, too!’ TOO RIGHT!

Gwen Stefani eats lots of protein, fish and vegetables and gulps down the water all day long. Gwen generally eats fruit for breakfast and chicken kebabs for lunch. During the day she snacks on Soy Lattes and Pringles and she loves Vitamin Water.

Her occasional treat of choice is pizza although she cuts that out completely if she feels she’s gained a few pounds. Gwen admits that dieting is not easy and from time to time she eats a bit naughtier.

Gwen said, "I go through phases with food, like everyone else. If something cool is coming up and I want to look good, I get into my healthy fitness mode and take care of myself, then as soon as its over, it’s like, ‘Hooray, let’s go get pizza.’ I do whatever I want, I become a lazy slob and watch TV. "

Gwen Pairs Her Diet With Exercise

Gwen Stefani pairs her diet with regular exercise to keep her body in it’s incredible form. Gwen gets her move on every day religiously with both cardio and strength training.

Gwen works with her personal trainer 3 times a week and also jogs or hikes in her neighborhood. Her personal trainer believes in the all round effort ‘work, diet and hydration’ to get super slim.

Gwen and her trainer work hard on her abs, arms and butt - it shows huh!

Gwen’s washboard stomach is achieved through crunches with a fitness and medicine ball. Her arms and shoulders stay toned with hard-core bicep and tricep work. To make sure Gwen keeps her curvy backside she works her muscles with fitness ball exercises.

So there you have it - Gwen Stefani’s diet!

Good on her for admitting openly that she works for her body! It’s refreshing to read something other than ‘oh I’m lucky I don’t have to watch what I eat’ cause we all hate that!

Jennifer Love Hewitt is a beautiful girl and she has a great, curvy body!

Today I’m going to give you the scoop on Jennifer Love Hewitt’s measurements and how she’s managed to not succumb to the incredibly dangerous size 0 trend in Hollywood even after all these years of fame.

Read on to find out more about this wonderful role model

Jennifer launched onto the acting scene in the 80’s on the Disney Channel show Kids Incorporated. After that she appeared on a number of shows before getting her biggest break on The Party of Five.

You will have also seen Jennifer on a number of your favourite movies including Heartbreakers, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Can’t Hardly Wait and The Audrey Hepburn Story.

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s Measurements

jennifer love hewitt measurements The newly engaged star has unfortunately come under fire this year by the often disgusting paparazzi about her supposed "weight gain."

All of the drama came about after the paparazzi invaded HER holiday celebrating HER engagement and took a series of photos of her in a bikini. I’ve seen the photos and don’t know what they were talking about - she looks absolutely radiant!

Yes she’s curvy. Yes she’s not a size 0. Yes’s shes got a bit of a bottom. She’s healthy, normal and should be admired as a role model not chastitised by the media from every angle.

I’d say Jennifer Love Hewitt’s measurements were around a 4 to 6 judging by current photos - a HEALTHY not to mention attractive weight for anyone.

Jennifer gets in shape for her roles with a personal trainer. Her workout’s involve skipping, squats, tricep dips, kick boxing and push ups.

Jennifer approaches her diet realistically enjoying her food and never starving herself. However Jennifer does try to limit her bad carbs when gearing up for a role.

Jennifer Hits Back

Jennifer Love Hewitt measurements Jennifer hit back at the media after the photos caused a whirlwind of attention around the globe.

Jennifer said: "Like all women out there should, I love my body, I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family. I’ve sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women’s bodies are constantly scrutinized. To set the record straight, I’m not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image."

I totally agree. The media have to start taking responsibility for the unrealisitic body image they’re forcing girls to aspire to! They’re fuelling the dangerous eating disorder epidemic that’s speading everywhere.

Jennifer also said: "Being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful. -
