Diet and exercise are still the best way to maintain your new physique after plastic surgery. Check out some of the ways our favorite stars stay healthy.
In the battle of the bulge, it takes a lifelong commitment to healthy eating and regular exercise to keep fat cells from overrunning our waistlines and invading our thighs. We’ve all learned the hard way that no matter how you trim down – Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, exercise boot camp, jogging (the list is endless!) -- if you don’t stick with the program, fat will start creeping back. One of the things surgeon’s caution bariatric (lap-band) surgery patients about is the need to permanently change eating and exercise habits so they don’t undo the benefits of their surgery. Even a stomach shrunk to a quarter of its normal size will start to stretch out again if it is consistently filled with more than it can hold.
The same is true of liposuction, tummy tucks, Mommy Makeovers and plastic surgery after significant weight loss. If you want to maintain your fabulous new look, you’re going to have to take control of your diet and exercise to keep off the pounds.
It’s a lesson celebrities take to heart. Actors, actresses and musicians are just like the rest of us. Some enjoy exercise; others loathe it. But unlike us, they can’t afford to ignore it. WonderWall recently quizzed celebrities about their diet and exercise habits. Despite a few quirky (and medically-questionable) notions, most celebs rely on proven methods to stay trim and fit.
