Celebrity trainers are overrated and misunderstood. There is a thought out there that celebrity trainers can do miracles. Some claim, for example, that celebrity trainers can make celebrities lose 10 pounds in 3 days. In reality, celebrity trainers are just personal trainers, they cannot help you achieve unrealistic weight-loss goals without putting your health in jeopardy.
In addition, given the fact that celebrity diets are often unbalanced, they do not exactly have a strong reputation outside of the Hollywood bubble, but it is wrong to think that they are all the same. Some celebrity trainers know what they are talking about. For example, the following diet and fitness tips are actually useful.
Go easy on the sugar Halle Berry’s trainer and creator of the 321 Baby Bulge Be Gone program, Ramona Braganza, has her clients cut out refined sugars and stick to complex carbs like multigrain breads and fruit. In other words, sugar detox keeps the pounds away.
Focus on health “If you’re working out just to look good, it’s easy to fall off because at the end of a hard day, looking good in a bathing suit isn’t such a priority,” explains Marco Borges, Beyonce’s trainer and author of Power Moves.
Stay away from fast food As Fergie’s trainer, Natasha Kufa, says, “Fast food is a nightmare for your body.” So are most processed foods. “If it’s got a label on it, don’t eat it!” says Tyra Banks’ trainer, Martin Snow.
Work out when you travel “Life isn’t an excuse to miss your workouts!” insists Madonna’s body guru Tracy Anderson. America Ferrera’s trainer and creator of the RevABs DVD, Brett Hoebel, says if you can’t get to a gym, “run outside doing 30-second intervals for 20 minutes.”
