Britney Spears’s Diet
Britney’s weight has fluctuated due to poor diet. Britney had developed a junk food addiction and her daily diet consisted mostly of empty calories. She has been seen consuming Red Bull energy drinks, Starbucks Frappuccinos and Marlboro Lights, all of which are neither healthy or help control the waistline. Britney’s trainer has instructed her to follow these simple rules:
- Six small meals a day of specially prepared organic food – chicken, salads, vegetables and other low-fat fare.
- Cut out barbecue sauces and gravies
- Eat more protein – especially on tour
- Eat complex carbs such as brown rice, vegetables and wholegrain breads
Britney Spears’ diet is simple – healthy snacks [fruit, nuts and low-fat yogurt] and six small meals a day. The days of simple carbs, such as pasta and white flour, are long gone.
“I’m the healthiest I’ve been all my life. My diet has a lot to do with my getting into shape. I have no sugar. I don’t eat fruit or 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 lunch. 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.”
She also minimized her intake of Carbohydrates, like rice and bread, opting instead for protein-packed meals. This could really be anything from grilled turkey breast, to a handful of roasted nuts.
