Everybody wants a flat belly. To look glamorous… like a big name actor, athlete or model. These so called “beautiful people” make staying slim look easy.
Still, chances are, they follow smarter workouts and eating plans than most people. Naturally, if we do what they do, we’ll get rid of belly fat too. And keep it off.
Secret #1 – Enjoy Simple, Healthy Foods
Eating simple, healthy foods are key if you want to get rid of belly fat. Low in sugar and cholesterol, the foods included in a balanced plan are often high in fiber and nutrients.
The beautiful people tend to eat simple foods. They avoid packaged products loaded with the kinds of ingredients only scientists can pronounce.
Secret #2 – Time Your Meals and Snacks
If the body goes more than four hours without a meal, it will hold on to fat, including belly fat. After all, for thousands of years, food was scarce. And surviving a famine was the body’s top priority.
The slender folks on TV eat balanced meals every three hours or so. They carry prepared meals and snacks with them. Or they eat out knowing in advance what they’ll order. Of course, we can easily do this too.
Secret #3 – Eat Balanced Meals
Meals that are 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fat help the body to run at peak metabolism. And make it easier to get rid of belly fat. Try this and adjust it to what works for you. This way, you’ll find your ideal ratio.
When you eat balanced meals like these at shorter intervals, you no longer trigger fat storage. You also prevent hunger. And binges.
This keeps your metabolism high – just like those trim idols on TV who make a point of eating every three hours or so.
Secret #4 – Drink Responsibly
Those same sexy stars, more often than not, drink only in moderation. They lay off of beer, booze and soda. This keeps their sugar intake down.
Too much sugar in the bloodstream can cause inflammation. And damage internal organs like the pancreas and liver.
You Can Get Rid of Belly Fat Too
The actors, athletes and models in the limelight are mere mortals like you and me. What works for them will work for you too.
In an upcoming post, we’ll look at the workouts they do. If you’d like a sneak preview, I invite you to learn more about the abdominals and how you can get rid of belly fat now.

As for other blogs, the first one is practical and talks about the Glycemic Index. The second is truly tongue-in-cheek cheeky.
- Primate Brow Flash » Blog Archive » celebrity diet secrets – One of the best ways to eat fewer calories is to avoid foods with a high Glycemic Index. Glycemic Index(GI) is a measure of how fast your body can convert the food into simple sugar. Foods with a high Glycemic Index (simple carbs) are instantly converted to sugar and make your blood sugar shoot up.
- Fitarella – serves up a guest post that really gets to the bottom of the whole celebrity diet trend. A forgotten fact: actors and reality stars and sisters/brothers of celebrities are usually thought of as whiny idiots until they get famous – then suddenly they’re a role model and everyone wants their advice and opinion. I spent years in LA and the spiritual suck of the place is relentless.
