It's no secret that Britney Spears had a notorious junk food craving and her daily diet consisted of primarily empty calories.
Britney has been seen consuming Red Bull energy drinks, Starbucks Frappuccinos and Marlboro Lights. On a few occasions, she’s been seen eating one of her favorite snacks, Cheetos. Pictures reportedly featured Britney looking bloated and overweight, until they were digitally slimmed down to resemble her trademark fit body.
Britney's personal trainer Bobby Strom has exposed several sources behind her fluctuating weight, including her mom Lynne's home cooking. He revealed "Her mind has not been in the right place for working out. She's had lots of stuff to get sorted in her head and her personal life lately. But I think that she's over it and back on course, mentally and physically. I'm sure I'll be seeing her again soon."
"She's fond of her mom's food but it tends to be carb heavy and calorific. I've told her to cut out barbeque sauces and gravies, and eat more protein - especially on tour. She also needs complex carbs such as brown rice, veggies and wholegrain breads" Strom added.
Britney in her own words revealed "I have no sugar. I don’t eat fruit of even fruit juice because of the sugar. I eat chicken and salmon and rice. I eat avocados. I’ll have egg whites for breakfast and sometimes turkey burgers for launch. I try to do just 1,200 calories a day…. It may sound like it’s not much, but it’s actually a lot of food if you eat the right things."
It has to be said though that the idea that fruits are "high sugar" and should be avoided is simply false. Processed fruits and fruit juices should be avoided, but whole unprocessed fruits are some of the most powerful weight loss foods on earth! Fruits get a bad rap because many dietitians, nutritionists, diet gurus, trainers etc have all blindly followed the lead of Atkins and South Beach as labeling many fruits as "bad."
In conclusion, losing weight is more than changing your eating habits and working out on a daily basis. What is needed is a supporting environment and guidance by a nutritionist and a personal trainer. It is very dangerous to follow whatever diet you find on magazines. Each person has different needs and lifestyle.
And last but not least: Stay away from diet pills that promise miracles. Diet pills can destroy your metabolism and can cause problems on your liver and heart. Learn to love your body first and give yourself time to lose weight with safety.
