How Britney Spears Got Her Bikini Body

At 34 years old, Britney Spears is proof that your thirties can look just as good as your twenties. This pop icon has been a public fascination since she burst onto the scene as a teen with her song, “Hit Me Baby One More Time”. She’s world famous for her tight outfits and entertaining shows and is currently on residency in Las Vegas for her live show Britney: Piece of Me.

Some fans wondered if Britney Spears would ever get back to her Onyx Hotel Tour days after her meltdown and downward spiral in 2007. Thankfully, the woman has more strength than people may have thought.

So, if you’re wondering how Britney made her body comeback the answer is that she followed a low-carb diet.

A low-carb, high-protein and high-fat diet like Atkins or the ketogenic diet helps the body to burn fat for fuel. It is also known to prevent depression, curb appetite and stabilize blood sugar levels. These are all excellent reasons to switch to a high-protein diet. Reality star Kim Kardashian also follows this diet.

Spears still has her cheat days, where she might enjoy french fries or other starchy foods. She balances this out by keeping the rest of her diet free of carbs.

Britney Spears keeps her current weight in check with consistent exercise. She combines cardio workouts like running on the treadmill and elliptical with yoga. She often does cardio to shed excess weight and keep her buttocks toned. It also helps her keep her thighs lean. She also hits the gym regularly with her trainer.

Spears also does yoga two times per week with trainer Elizabeth I., who is the owner of EQI Yoga Studio in Los Angeles. She does a mix of yoga poses during a 60- to 90-minute session. This is the key to her svelte body. Some of her favorite yoga poses include boat pose, crescent lunge, Warrior II pose, camel pose and bow pose.

If you want to get a body like Britney, it is possible – just think of how far she has come through consistent hard work. Try some yoga and a low-carb diet to lose weight and tone your body.
