Britney Spears Workout and Diet

Entertainer
Born: 1981

Britney Spears was born in Mississippi and grew up in Louisiana. Always active, she started dance lessons at age 3. Spears also took lessons in gymnastics and voice and competed at many state-level competitions. When she was 8, she tried out for The Mickey Mouse Club. She was turned down for being too young, but the casting director recommended she go to performing arts school, so her mother moved her daughters to New York where Spears was cast as an understudy for Natalie Portman in Ruthless!. She also appeared on Star Search and was cast in several commercials before being picked up for The Mickey Mouse Club in 1992. In 1997 at age 15, Spears signed with Jive Records. Baby One More Time was named the Greatest Debut by Rolling Stone magazine and her first 2 albums were among the best-selling records of all time. Spears is often called ‘The Princess of Pop’ and credited with reviving teen pop in the 1990s & early 2000s. She holds many awards, including 7 from Billboard and 13 from the Guinness Book, but still only 1 Grammy. Her acting career was short-lived, with a single starring role in Crossroads. She was the highest paid celebrity judge on X Factor. Spears is also big on perfume and has created 20 fragrances over the years. She has 2 sons with backup dancer Kevin Federline to whom she was briefly married. She has millions of followers on social media. Spears is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs about 120 lbs.

Britney Spears’ Diet

Summary

Between their teams of psychics and sometimes wild behavior, stars may seem different from the rest of us, but Spears is distinctly human when it comes to eating. She admits to being very moody with food, and needs help to keep her on track. Under the supervision of trainer Derek DeGrazioto, Spears follows a very disciplined diet consisting of no more than 1,500 calories per day, and primarily composed of lean protein and high-fiber veggies. Her protein comes in the form of egg whites, chicken breast, salmon, sushi and yogurt. She makes sure to get her greens every day with hearty salads and steamed veggies. She also eats a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables for specific properties, such as to help tame asthma and headaches. Her snacks are healthy too, such as nuts or fruit smoothies.

Food Is Medicine

Spears has started focusing on certain foods for specific properties. She eats bananas, strawberries and pears for stress and spinach, garlic and lemons for asthma.

\

Wholesome Meals

Spears often has a salad with animal protein at lunch for a meal that is satisfying but won’t slow her down and send her into a carb-coma in the afternoon. Dinner might be some grilled meat with a side of steamed veggies.

\

Savvy Snacker

When Spears feels a snack attack, she has nuts, yogurt and granola or a smoothie made from fresh fruit so she never has to say ‘Oops.’

Cheat Day

Spears sticks to her healthy eating 6 days a week, and cuts loose on Sundays. Chocolate and pizza are some of her faves, but she can go for just about anything. This balanced approach helps many people stay on track and avoid unhealthy bingeing.

Britney Spears’ Lifestyle

Spirit Mattress Guide

Spears bought a bed based on a psychic’s recommendation who said that the piece of furniture belonged to Spears in a previous life, and that it also belonged to a princess.

Bad Habits

Spears’s whole life is on display, and one of her less-than-ideal habits is nail biting. Another one of her bad habits is leaving candles burning. She almost burned down her NYC apartment and their house in Louisiana when she was a teen by leaving a candle burning.

Odd Gifts

Spears and pal Justin Timberlake once bought each other custom-made toilet seats with their faces on them for $21,000.

Going Au Naturel

Sure, Spears is infamous for going panty-less and popping up naked in in appropriate locations, but she is now a big fan of going nude — on her face. She says makeup is fun, but that a bare face makes her look much younger.

Family Tension

Spears only has 30% unsupervised custodial time with her 2 boys, Sean and Jayden. The court decision comes after Spears spent time in a mental health facility, which she says was to deal with stress over her father’s illness.

Record Holder

Spears hold a record for being married for the shortest duration: 55 hours. On New Year’s Eve 2004, she married Jason Alexander, only to have it annulled immediately after.

Family In the Spotlight

Spears’ mother Lynne Irene Spears co-authored a book about Britney’s life called Heart to Heart. She also wrote the novel A Mother’s Gift, and a tv movie was based on it. In 2008, Lynne released a journal entitled Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World relating what it is like to live with the media tracking your every move.

Famous for the Wrong Reasons

Spears’ sister Jamie Lynn is also famous: for getting pregnant at age 17. She and the father of her child never married and ended the relationship after a couple of years.

{

Spears on Her Bed

‘One of my psychics said that in another lifetime, it used to be my  bed. And they said it belonged to a princess. She could be totally wrong but it’s a nice thought, right?’

{

Spears on Her Life

‘I go through life like a Karate Kid.’

{

Spears on Success

‘Success is sometimes harder than failure because when you are successful, people expect so much more out of you.’

{

Spears on Being in The Public Eye

‘I can’t go anywhere without someone judging me.’

{

Spears on Makeup

‘Who would have thunk it?!?! After all this time in my life, I’m just now learning that no makeup is the way to go.’

{

Spears on Her Image

‘I would like to be called an inspiration to people, not a role model, because I make mistakes like everybody else.’

{

‘I don’t like defining myself. I just am.’
