I always said if I had a personal trainer and personal chef I could look as good as some of these celebrity starlets do everyday (body wise). Celebrities are the epitome of appearance. They are constantly under the spotlight in regards to the bodies, clothes, hairstyle and every other aspect of their lives. We hold celebrities to a much higher standard than we do ourselves, probably because they get paid to look that good. When celebrities are in the limelight they can’t afford to not look good or else they will get scrutinized publicly. That is why celebrities work so hard to make sure they look good no matter what.
Just like us celebrities have their lists of dos and don’ts. They have little rituals, secrets, and agendas that keep them up to par everyday. Some celebrities have extreme workouts or well-planned diets. You can follow some of these extreme regimens and look just as good as they do. Take some secrets from the top women in movies (Gwyneth Paltrow), TV (Jennifer Aniston), music (Madonna), fashion (Claudia Schiffer) and talk shows (Oprah). Here are some of the celebrity secrets that everyone wants to know.

Low glycemic carbohydrates such as beans, fruits and vegetables and legumes ensure that the body breaks it down and uses the carbohydrates instead of storing them in the body. Lean protein such as tofu, fish, chicken, turkey, beef and low fat dairy products is a necessary part of her diet to maintain and build muscle.
