Britney Spears’ diet and exercise program

The National Enquirer has details of the diet and fitness regime Britney’s on in an effort to lose 20 pounds and kick start her comeback, and I hope they have some of the details wrong it because it sounds grueling. Supposedly Britney’s newly re-hired manager, Larry Rudolph, put her on the program, and this would make sense because he is also the person who is said to be brokering the deal to have her represent Bally Total Fitness.

Here are the details:

  • “Six small meals a day of specially prepared organic food – chicken, salads, vegetables and other low-fat fare.”
  • Pampering treatments for encouragement and appearance such as facials, hair and skin care treatments
  • Working out “with a trainer, three times a day, five days a week.”
  • “She’s been ordered to do a staggering thousand stomach crunches a day on her own.”

[Details and quoted text from The National Enquirer, print edition, May 5, 2008]

A thousand stomach crunches and working out three times a day? That sounds excessive, and like something that could backfire because it’s too difficult. If you have attainable goals and a realistic schedule it’s easier to stick with. I hope they got it wrong and she works out three to five times a week or something. You can work out nearly every day, but you should alternate cardio with strength training to give your muscles a chance to recover. Three times a day sounds like it would really wear your body down.

The Enquirer quotes a source as saying “Larry doesn’t want her to be a joke when he restarts her career – and he wants her to look sexier than ever.” Maybe they should work her at an easier pace. It’s only been a a few months since she had that whole breakdown and she has a tendency to rebel when people force her to do things. Still, you wish her well and all. It’s just doesn’t seem like trying for a singing career again at this point would be the best move for her. It’s not like she knows how to do much else though.

Britney is shown leaving Bally Total Fitness on 4/23/08. She looks really happy and you can see that she’s lost weight.

    This just sounds like another type of excess. The eating plan doesn’t sound too bad, although there aren’t that many details, but the workout plan is excessive and sounds like a good way to get injured.

  2. Bodhi says:

    Look another hamsa! It must be happy hamsa day! Aaannd I’m a giant dork. Moving along…

    Didn’t she have insane workout routine back in the day? I seem to remember reading that she did some ridiculous amount of crunches then too. If I had a shef & a personal trainer to get my butt in gear (and of course the time & money for it all) I’d be itty bitty

    I wonder if they let her take breaks for her kids?

  3. Bellatrix says:

    Yes, Bodhi, another hamsa…
    Although I’m a sucker for her sword/dagger necklace.

    I also believe she used to have a crazy workout plan on daily basis. She hasn’t got the kind of body that is naturally very slim. And her “best” feature at the time were her abs. So the 1000 crunches doesn’t seem impossible to me.

    I’m already happy that homegirl is now wearing some fake nails and has, what I call, “social hair” (hair you can show in society without scaring people).
    Let’s hope she isn’t going to fall back into an excessive style of life which would, in the end, have enormous negative effects.

    1000 crunches isn’t that bad. You just break it up during the day and its not bad at all. 100 here 50 there … etc. Crunches are great but you want killer abs do pilates and yoga… Planks and resistance work has done amazing things to my abs.

  5. Kayla says:

    Britney has always had a bangin body so it shouldn’t be long before it is very close to looking like before. She needs this to get there and I for one believe in her. GO BRITNEY!!!!

  6. emma says:

    brit used to do 1000 crunches a day back in the day, so that’s nothing new. after she had spf she worked out twice a day.

  7. Milton says:

    Nothing will help her. Poor kid…ah, I mean, mom.

  8. Kevin says:

    If she can get hot again look for Kevin Federdouche to be back in the picture…and it does offend me that he has my first name.

  9. chamalla says:

    It sounds kinda like boot camp, which doesn’t seem like the worst thing that could happen to Brit. No wonder we haven’t seen much of her….

    Seriously, mental illness aside, it seems like this girl needs a lot of structure and discipline in her life right now. This seems like a pretty difficult program, but maybe it’s just what she needs to get her priorities back in order. Plus, if she pulled it off and kept it up without going batshit again, I think I’d be pretty impressed with her stamina.

  10. Jaclyn says:

    I think for any normal person (not a celebrity), this plan would definitely backfire! I mean, we have jobs, school, etc. Britney HAS to do this for her job…so I think she can do it. Her job depends on this.

  11. mollination says:

    I think she looks cute in that header pic. Miss you britney!

  12. DiNiGi says:

    on her worst day I’d still prefer hearing about her than hagdonna ANY DAY. such a COLD calculating…words escape me.

  13. Sasha says:

    Here’s a page from her program:

    10AM BINGE
    11AM PURGE

  14. Pamela says:

    I think that this is the best type of regime for someone like Britney with an all or nothing personality.

  15. biq says:

    I think I remember way back in grade school (or maybe high school) at the height of her belly baring career, she claimed to have worked out and did crunches 1000 times a day. So perhaps this is just her going back to her old work out routine?

  16. mojoman says:

    Somebody mentioned structure and discipline but you know who needs them more than Brit? the crack-ho Wino! that girl is such a mess even the Pope wont be able to help. I think Britney is Queen of England compared to her.

  17. Other Karen says:

    1000 crunches/day sound about right for the body she’s attempting to attain. She claimed to adore crunches and was doing 1000/day back in the day, as biq said. I remember they did a feature on her exercise routine on Entertainment Tonight or Access Hollywood–maybe in the early 2000s?.

  18. perty mokey says:

    working out 3 times a day is possible, if you don’t have a regular job. It doesn’t say for how long each time, but even if it’s for 2 hours each, thats only 6 hours. Most working stiffs (like myself) work at least 8 hours a day, sometimes 10. You would break it up from say 8-10 am. then 1-3 pm, and maybe 6-9 pm. Especially if you didn’t havfta take care of your kids, which she doesn’t. Or take care of anything most normal people do. Cooking, cleaning, etc. I’m just saying she doesn’t have it that bad

  19. Heather says:

    go Britney!! kudos to her for trying to clean up her act…i have 2 small kids and i’m totally jealous of her killer bod! i know how hard it is to get back in shape(if i had her trainer and chef i’m sure i could look like that though)

  20. Christina X says:

    That’s great for her and all, and I’m actually happy to see her lose weight and look pretty, but from a realistic perspective?

    I can’t afford a trainer. I can’t eat six meals a day, not because it’s not enough, but because I feel it’s *too much*.

    Back in my pre-beached whale days, I was on the one meal a day diet. Hey, the weight stayed off for three years…

  21. Christine says:

    Doesn’t sound too hard– just need the will power! I think Britney looks great & I’m proud of her for getting herself back– naturally! Dancing isn’t a walk in the park… + 1,000 crunches + nutrition… I can easily see how she achieved her body!! Good job, Britney!

    I like what you are contemplating with this but I cant totally agree with you 100% on this information. Id be more likely to take the conservative approach myselfBest Registry Cleaners

  27. Identifying it is the hardest part, but I agree with your conclusion. I am going to do some research and post it here for clarity. Stay tuned and I’ll be back with the info. I made sure to bookmark the site so I’ll be able to find my way back. LOL Also, if any of you women need <a href=”” at home ab exercises don’t hesitate to begin immediately.

  28. At least she’s rich enough that she can work out all day if that’s what her staff want her to do.
