The story goes something like this: girl meets boy, girl falls in love with boy, boy asks girl to marry him, girl says yes and then immediately goes on a crash diet to lose weight before her wedding. This trend is so popular that there have been many television shows about brides-to-be and their search for physical perfection, such as Shedding for the Wedding. Although this seems to be the way that it usually goes, it is not the case for Vanessa Minnillo, whose boyfriend of five years, Nick Lachey, proposed to recently.
“I want him to see the girl he fell in love with,” Minnillo said of her plans for losing weight for her big day. “I want to stay true to who I am, but, you know, a better version.”
Minnillo plans on improving her body by using a five-meal-a-day delivery service and working out three times a week with her personal trainer, instead of using a crash diet. She trains with personal-trainer-to-the-stars, Gunnar Peterson, who also is the creator of the Core Secrets workout DVDs.
“He trains me like an athlete,” Minnillo said of her hour-long workouts with Peterson. “When I started, I remember thinking, ‘Ugh, I”m trying to win the Super Bowl!’ But now I like it.”
Gunnar owns and operates his own training facility in Beverly Hills, California. In addition to training Minnillo, Gunnar has also trained celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and many professional athletes.
