Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson, who has trained Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lopez
and Penelope Cruz,
says: "I had one actress training with me four times a week in addition to daily exercise-bike classes."
When asked how she'd "transformed" her body, her reply was, " 'Oh, I do yoga and hike with my dog,' "
he said. "It makes me laugh,"
said Peterson. So the next time you see a pencil-thin celebrity brag about her relaxed approach to eating, remember this:
THEY TAKE DRUGS
When Lindsay Lohan was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, police found cocaine
in her pocket. Paris Hilton admitted to Larry King that she takes Adderall
for attention-deficit disorder. Both drugs are often used by women looking to lose weight. Adderall is the latest diet-drug craze in Hollywood. Female celebrities from Paris to Nicole Richie, from Lindsay to Britney Spears all reportedly have used prescription Adderall. It keeps you awake while killing the appetite. It has become the miracle pill - but one with potentially dangerous consequences. Even when taken as instructed, Adderall can cause psychotic episodes
, depression and serious heart problems.
Some celebrities also take Clenbuterol
, known as Clen. Commonly prescribed to treat respiratory problems in horses, in humans it can cause fat loss. While Clenbuterol and Adderall create a slimming effect in the short term, after a while users may have sudden and uncontrollable weight gain.
THEY ABUSE LAXATIVE TEAS
Britney Spears has never been shy about her love for junk food. She engages in all kinds of behavior to counter a taste for Taco Bell. She smokes, drinks coffee and Red Bull, has diet pills in her bag and takes Adderall. She also has been seen hitting all-night drugstores, shopping for laxatives
Today, many actresses take laxatives in the form of "dieter's tea," which has a mild laxative effect. Some drink up to 10 cups a day. Trainer Gelband says: "The latest trend among models is mixing laxative tea with the Master Cleanse diet. All they drink is Master Cleanse and laxative tea."
"Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl
looks to have lost 10-15 pounds in the last year. She may be following a healthy eating plan, but she appears to have a secret weapon - she smokes constantly. Heigl is rarely photographed without a cigarette in her mouth, and when not smoking, she has a pack at the ready.
