They may have a lot of money, but their bodies are the same as ours! How do they keep so trim?

After big events like the Met Gala, I can’t help but to stare at all the amazing dresses, and fit figures – of all the celebrity attendees.

They’ve got all the money they could want… and it’s basically their JOB to look good.

Lucky them!

But lucky for YOU, I’ve snagged a list of some real celebrity weight loss secrets so that “the rest of us” can look red-carpet ready, too!

Remember – even though you may not have millions of dollars, your body is the same as every one of these slim, trim, sexy celebs.

The same tricks that work for celebrity weight loss will work for you, too!

Looking good in your workout clothes makes you want to workout more often!

1.  Lust After Your Gym Clothes…

It was a great day when I wore an Old Navy workout outfit to the gym and not one, but two people asked me if it was a high-end brand!

In this day and age, mega-retailers have caught on to the fact that gym clothes don’t need to look like gym ‘class’ clothes from the 80′s.

Find yourself a super-cute shirt or the comfiest training shoes you can afford.

This will make you WANT to get into the gym more, if nothing else so that you can wear clothes and shoes you love!

If you’re like me, you don’t go to the gym very much, but rather opt for at-home exercise, running, and body weight training.

But the concept is the same.

When I wake up in the morning, I get SO excited to wear a pair of my favorite workout shoes and cute little workout top.

And once I put the outfit on – it just doesn’t feel right unless I get some training in, too!

If you look good – it can make weight training in front of the mirror that much more motivating!

2.  Look Like You Love To Be There…

How often do people walk around the gym with no makeup, shying away from people’s eye contact?

Kelly Osbourne admits that her super-secret celebrity weight loss tip is simple: the Makeup Trick.

That way she looks in the mirror while she’s training and loves what she sees.

It makes the third set of WoodChops or Upright Rows a bit more fun when you think you look cute doing it!

Set yourself small goals so you have MORE victories!

3.  Eat The Elephant One Bite At A Time…

It’s no fun to think, “I want to lose 20 pounds by summer” or “I need to lose 30 pounds before vacation.

The whole thing just sounds too intimidating.

In business I tell my staff that if we eat the elephant one bite at a time, we will finish small projects rapidly as opposed to focus on one huge project that never seems to get done.

Plus, if you space your 1 big weight loss goals into 6 small goals, you have more victories!

Get it?  6 goals met vs. 1 goal met = 6 times the celebration!

Who doesn’t want a good celebration?!  It’s good for your mind, and your body!

Switch up your routine to train different parts of your body.

4.  Play The Training Guessing Game…

Shay Mitchell uses what she terms the “Got To Look Hot In A Week” plan.

Taking your weight loss plan week-by-week is way easier than the thought of giving up ice cream and pizza for life.

She says that in 7 days, she varies her workouts between bicycling, treadmill intervals, and other exercises that keep her body guessing all week.

Plus, by switching things up, you train MORE muscles than if you just stuck to one or two exercises.

But be sure to rest muscles that become sore after your week of workouts in order to prevent injury!

The best workouts are the ones that are so fun, you forget you’re training!

5.  Act Like A Kid…

The first time I took a martial arts class, it felt like I was a kid.

Jumping, kicking, wearing pajamas… loved.it!

Try to imagine some workouts that make you feel like a kid.

Maybe it’s getting on a bike.  Perhaps it’s box-jumping or Zumba dance class.

When you are having fun while training… you guessed it.  You forget it’s ‘training’ at all!

Plus, as Emmy Rossum puts it, if you take a new class that’s fun, you get to soak up the positive energy around you.

There’s invariably going to be somebody putting in 110%, which causes you to want to give your all, too.

Not in the mood to cross-country run? Try planking for one minute intervals instead!

6.  Shorter IS Smarter!

There is mounting evidence that your body actually gains MORE muscle when you do short, intense workouts as opposed to long, exhausting ones.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr uses a workout that only requires *twelve* minutes a day.

Four times a week, she does intervals with simple exercises, such as lunges, squats, and star jumps.

Because it’s only TWELVE measly minutes, she can fit it into her busy schedule.

And in case you didn’t know this, she’s basically one of the world’s most famous supermodels… so something is clearly working well about this workout!

Try 12 minutes of burpees, lunges, or sets of box jumps.

This high intensity training is great for short, powerful training!

Don’t deprive yourself: cheat at the “right” times!

7.  Pick The Right Times To Cheat…

 

 

Oh, yeah.  You know you’ve done it.

You’ve been eating really good all day so you allow yourself to have a few chips at night.

Maybe you order the creamed corn instead of spinach as a side.

You may even have a drink or two… or three or four…

STOP!  This is probably the worst habit you can make in your diet because you sit on those calories all night long without having burned them off… and worse yet – it interrupts your sleep!

And if your sleep is shoddy – your whole body suffers.

Moreover, if you haven’t had a lot to eat in the earlier part of the day, your metabolism isn’t cranked up to handle a binge-fest at night!

Starlet Hayden Panettiere indulges, but makes sure to do it in the morning so that she can burn if off all day.

What’s your ‘real’ goal? To look good in a swimsuit? To live longer for your kids?

8.  Ask Yourself “The Question”…

What’s the point?

You may be asking yourself this very question as you run in place on the treadmill or kill your quads doing some squats.

But keeping the bigger question in mind is can help you make it through your weight loss slumps.

Celebrity weight loss trainer Jillian Michaels started with the question ‘why do I want to be in shape?” and wrote it down.

She sees her list constantly everywhere to remind herself why she trains and how it will improve her life.

Why do you want to be in shape?

Is it to live longer?  To feel better?  To prove to somebody that you ‘still got it’?

It’s nobody’s place to judge why you train but your own.

So grab yourself a pen and a pad of sticky-notes and write it down.  Now put it in drawers, on your fridge, in your closet, and on your mirror.

You’ll be so motivated all day that you won’t be able to ditch your workout!

Listen to your body – it’s your own personal magical power!

9.  Develop A Self-Love Spidey-Sense…

Going to the gym is NOT always the best thing for you.

Sometimes it’s sleeping in.

And sometimes the best thing for your weight loss goal is to have a cheat day!

You know what is going to motivate you and what will, by contrast, wipe you out!

So listen to your body.

If you aren’t in the mood for weight training, take a walk with the dogs.

Or if you don’t feel like a long workout – just try to do 10 minutes of something fun, like dancing or jumping rope.

Maybe what your body NEEDS to repair and recover is a nice, long bath!

Cameron Diaz says that taking care of herself is more important than having a ripped stomach.  “…Some days I go to the gym for literally 10 minutes.  But the fact that I got up and got there matters to me.”
