Her secret formula is hula hooping! Bus she says that the real secret is hard work and a lot of attention and diligence. She works out every single day putting in about 30 minutes of cardio workout on her treadmill. She also uses free weights, pilates and yoga. But Kelly says that the biggest thing she does is have fun. She loves her hula hoop and spends endless hours in it every week. She does succumb to her cravings at time but has learned how to tame them and work with them instead of giving into them. She tends to eat her “fattiest” meal in the mornings.

Christina Aguilera

christina_aguilera-before-afterChristina Aguilera attributes her stunning 40 pound weight loss to a combination of a low-carb diet and yoga. She eats a lot of high quality fats such as avocado along with lean protein like a chicken breast or some fish. Her choice of healthy snacks includes things like celery with peanut butter or some almond butter.

She also likes to have a workout playing paintball in her house. She can burn about 400 calories in just a half hour of playing paintball.

Although some people say that she has lost more than 40 pounds this is probably because she is so small boned. Even a relatively small weight loss can look much larger on a person who has a small frame like Christina does.
