Fitness magazine just released its list of the best celebrity bodies of 2010. Just as a warning: This is probably not the article you want to be reading after polishing off the last three slices of the holiday pecan pie.

Quorn, the top-selling frozen meat-free natural food brand, introduced two new burgers- the Classic Burgers and Cheese Burgers- to their expanding line of meat-free eats.
Just like all Quorn products, these vegetarian burgers are made with mycoprotein, a blend of antioxidant-rich and protein-packed fungi. Mycoprotein is also completely soy-free and contains all nine essential amino acids.

Singer Carrie Underwood and hockey player Mike Fisher tied the knot this weekend. She claims to be obsessed with avoiding the tummy fat that’s in her “fat genes,” but she was picture perfect for the big day. According to celebritydietdoctor.com, Underwood followed a vegetarian diet and used a diet journal to help her keep track of calories. “I discovered that writing down everything I eat makes such a difference, because you never realize how much you’re consuming unless you read it later in the day,” she said.
Eating right is only half the picture. To get the most from her workout, Underwood had some help from NHL trainer Tony Greco. She followed an exercise regime that included cardio and weight training. “My favorite thing is cardio,” said the singer. “It helps the pounds melt off and it gives me so much more energy. Now when I’m performing and running around the stage, it’s no big deal, whereas before I was gasping for breath.”
Hollywood’s elite may have the money to hire personal trainers and chefs and buy the best exercise equipment, but when it comes to losing weight, the responsibility for putting all of these tools into action is theirs and theirs alone.
Our fascination with how they do it (and why we struggle so much) has inspired us to take a close look into their personal lives to motivate us as we strive to reach and maintain our weight loss goals. So here is a snapshot of a few of Hollywood’s most successful dieters and what helped them shape up and slim down.
