Britney Spears August 2009
She used the Hollywood secret that everyone misses.
It's the biggest, best, most important secret of fat loss there is.
And yet, if you read the magazine article in Ok!, you still might miss it.
Eat Right And Work Out For A Long Time
Britney Didn't lose 20lbs in a month with a magic diet or workout.
She worked out and ate right and lost 1 or 2 pounds per week like any normal human being.
The before pictures they are using are from over a year ago.
I wrote about it here: Britney Spears "Circus" Workout with Seven
back in December 2008 - and she'd already been working out for months and seeing results.
Lets get real - it's actually a lot simpler easier to lose 4 pounds per month than it is to lose 20.
But Britney has been rocking her food, her workouts, dancing a lot while she is on tour... she's been at this for a while, and she actually lost the weight at the same realistic pace that you can.
What Doesn't Sell Magazines...
...Is What Will Get You The Body You Want
I don't know why it sells magazines to say "Lose 20lbs in a month!" but it does.
Losing 20 pounds would be a lot of work.
Maybe even chopping off a limb.
If you do a crash diet/workout program and try to lose 20lbs in a month, you will fail miserably.
But you can lose 4lbs per month, and win. And win every month until you hit your goal.
If you take realistic steps, one at a time, then you are totally for real on your way to rocking a multi-colored bikini top with your spandex pants like Britney in the picture above.
I Know It's About Working Out and Eating Right, and Losing 1-2lbs of Fat Per Week...
...But Why Am I Having So Much Trouble Doing That?
Because no one is making you do it.
Seriously. Rockstars don't even want to do it.
Because she likes having a toned body, she hired a trainer to make her do it.
The secret IS NOT that she had some magic plan.
THE SECRET is that she hired someone to make her do the things she wouldn't do on her own, and make her do it until she hit her goal.
And then with her trainer holding her accountable to lift weights and eat right, she lost weight in the same totally normal amount of time that you and I would.
What Britney Did That is REALLY Amazing
The story really should have been about the fact that Britney lost the weight and kept it off for a year!
A year later she is still eating right, and she is still working out.
A year later she still has the rockstar body.
How many people lose weight and then next thing they know they find it again?
But Britney didn't stop and get fat again.
She's maintained her healthy and fit lifestyle for over a year because she's had a solid accountability structure the whole time.
Britney is either:
A.) On tour: Dancing constantly or practicing her dance routine constantly.
B.) Not on tour: Working out with her trainer 5 days per week.
Either way, she kind of doesn't have a choice about it. There are other people there to keep her on track.
The Ultimate Secret of Rockstar Fitness
Eat Right. Work Out.
If you haven't been eating right and working out on your own, then you create an accountability structure for eating right and working out.
That's the whole secret.
Sometimes accountability is a trainer. Sometimes it's being on tour. Some people can have a really great workout buddy that holds them accountable. Sometimes it's an online coaching club.
What structure you decide to use doesn't matter. Just make sure you have structured accountability.
If you have structure and accountability then you'll do the things it takes to have a rockstar body.
And if you already have a rockstar body, you'll be able to maintain it for as long as you have structure and accountability.
