Diet Secrets From The Stars!
September 7, 2012|
Ever wonder how the celebrities stay so slim? I do. So, I did some research and here’s what I found.
Heidi Klum – says adding Epsom Salts to a hot bath releases trapped fats, purges toxins, and reduces the appearance of cellulite. The salts are actually a combination of magnesium and sulfate – the minerals are absorbed through the pores into the blood, which lowers cortisol levels (a hormone that stores body fat).
Jennifer Lopez – swears by breathing in the scent of grapefruit oil. When volunteers breathed in the scent, they experienced a rush of serotonin in the brain, a hormone that helped them feel less anxious, so they were less likely to binge.
Faith Hill – snacks on edamame to calm her cravings. A Japanese snack of soybeans , which are full of hunger-reducing fiber and protein. They also have phytoestrogens that help balance out-of-whack hormones that create cravings.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna – drink coconut water to increase energy. Because it’s so hydrating, pure coconut water speeds up the metabolic rate, which assists with fat burning and reduces water weight.
Kelly Ripa – enjoys Greek yogurt to flatten her tummy. They say that dairy actually helps you lose weight. It has protein and calcium – nutrients that boost metabolism.
Julia Roberts – knits to stop stress eating! Julia brings her knitting with her on set – she says it relives anxiety and tension – the two top culprits behind emotional eating.
