Britney Spears Goes On Low-Carb, Dance Diet

Britney Spears ditched the gimmicks and lost weight on low-carb

Remember back in February this year when Britney Spears was moaning and groaning about her weight following the birth of her first child? I was pretty hard on her about her attitude regarding her "excess weight" which amounted to maybe 20 pounds. That ain't no big weight problem compared to most of the rest of us!

At the time, she explained that she was "at her wit's end" about what to do about her weight.

"She wants to lose weight, but she's having the most difficult time doing it," a spokesperson for Spears said at the time. "Britney is feeling awful about herself right now."

It was sad really to see someone like her get so depressed and discouraged by something as natural as weight gain after having a baby. That's a part of life, Britney! Get on a plan and get the weight off. That's all you need to do.

What really got me was when she was offered a ton of money by several weight loss companies to become their spokesperson and she was actually considering them. Thankfully nature had a way of delaying what would have been a poor decision by her when Spears got pregnant with her second child.

That little one named Sutton Pierce was just born in early September to join one-year old Sean Preston, but this All Headline News story reveals that Spears has already lost about half of her baby weight since. That's not surprising since she is still a very young 24 years old and has a healthy body despite her previous poor dietary habits of Cheetos and French fries.

But check this out: Britney Spears decided against using a personal trainer, weight loss pills or any kind of weird gimmicky diets to lose weight this time. Instead, she chose to go back to the fun dance exercises ("it's more fun than the gym," Spears said) she has previously enjoyed, cut out fast food, and has eaten lots of healthy fruits, nuts and low-fat yogurt while cutting back on her carbohydrate intake.

YOU READ THAT RIGHT! Britney Spears is livin' la vida low-carb!

She has gotten back down to a size 8 one month after giving birth and celebrated by buying herself some new clothes in Los Angeles. Good for her celebrating her weight loss and showing that there is no reason to panic when you just need to take it one day at a time to get the weight off. We live in an "instant" society that demands satisfaction now, so it is predictable to see people wanting FAST weight loss results. And Britney Spears got it thanks to the low-carb lifestyle!

CONGRATULATIONS, Britney! I hope you keep on doing those new healthy habits you have added to your life over the past month or so. They will help keep you looking sexy and beautiful for many years to come and you'll never have to worry about your weight ever again. I encourage you to keep on livin' la vida low-carb!

Lots of healthy fruits and low-fat yogurt doesn't sound exactly low-carb to me. At least it looks like she cut starchy carbs... I feel the most interesting part is that she didn't take the opportunity to be the spokesperson for a diet company, but wait - we are probably staring at the beginning of the Lose Like Britney-Plan... *g*

THANKS for your comments, detox! Lots of low-carbers eat "healthy fruits" like blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, honeydew and cantaloupe and I would bet many eat some low-fat yogurt as well.

Remember, this process of changing our beliefs about food may take some time to get over the indoctrination that fat is bad. Someday Britney will discover (MAYBE!) that fat is her friend and that she doesn't need to cut it out to be healthy and trim.

As she gets older, then perhaps this change will become more solidified in her lifestyle. That's what livin' la vida low-carb is all about.
