What do Katy Perry, Miranda Kerr and other hot celebrities snack on to stay slim and trim? From spinach to dark chocolate, here are some favorite slimming foods of Hollywood’s hottest!
Katy Perry starts her mornings off right with scrambled eggs. Eggs are full of protein which helps you stay full longer than carbohydrates, as well at vitamin B12 which helps boost metabolism and burn fat.
Jamie Pressly opts for spinach when it comes to sides and salads. Spinach is packed with folate, which can help lower cortisol levels – the dreaded stress hormone!
Maria Menounos turns to raspberries when she’s craving something sweet. Berries hit the spot without an insulin spike; plus, they’re loaded with fiber.
Miranda Kerr‘s favorite indulgence is dark chocolate, and she’s not afraid to dig in. The heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in dark chocolate can help you lose stomach fat. Just stick to 1 to 2-ounce servings.
Chloe Sevigny‘s favorite slimming snack is grapefruit – a weight-loss powerhouse according to dietitian Keri Glassman. “Research shows that people who ate a half a grapefruit with each meal lose more than 3 pounds in 12 weeks,” she says. That’s a lot of weight for just adding grapefruit to your diet!
Padma Lakshmi knows a thing or two about food, and she opts for nonfat yogurt with food when a snack-attack hits. And she’s definitely on to something – a number of studies have shown that dieters who include more low-fat dairy in their diet lose more weight than those who don’t.
Lindsay Price likes to spice things up! She adds cayenne to soup and hummus, which can help boost the metabolism and increase the number of calories you burn.
