brit-brit-x-facto-diet.jpg

We can still hardly believe it but Britney Spears is gonna be a judge on X Factor!! We totally called it!

Now, sources close to Brit Brit are already talking about her plans to get back into shape for her judge role.

Ahhhh!!

It's real! It's really real! A source said that Simon Cowell planned on filling her dressing room with prunes and figs, saying:

"He promised to fill her dressing room with them. That’ll make her ‘regular’ now."

Gross.

Anyway, the source also said:

"Britney has to look picture perfect, even during downtime. Simon has laid down the law – he’s paying for 'superstar Britney' not the 'trailer trash' version she’s occasionally become known as. Her people have promised she will be transformed. She’ll be glammed up, slimmed down and totally focused on the show.

Her diet includes lots of protein and superfoods to helps speed up her metabolism. The plan is to keep her full in between meals with vitamin juices, so she doesn’t get hungry and grab junk food."

We bet she's gonna look ahmayzing!!

She's gonna be the best judge EVER!

Bottom Line: Sleep 7-9 hours per night to maximize health and leanness!

QuickFit Tip Of The Day

Pink

Don't go overboard! While it's important to allow yourself a cheat meal every once in a while, make sure you keep this in moderation. For my clients, I prescribe one cheat meal a week (of any food they desire) to keep their cravings at bay and metabolism fueled! Everyone is different, so find what works for you!
