Post image for Mariah Carey Loses Post-Baby Weight Through Ocean Exercises

It’s safe to say that at the age of 41 and after just having not one but two babies, Mariah Carey has never looked healthier.  According to People Magazine, Mariah began working out immediately after having her newborn twins to get back into her pre-baby body. How does she do it? Using a variety of workout techniques, Mariah has quickly gotten back into shape.

Not only does the new mom tweet about her jogs with her five Jack Russell terriers (Cha Cha, Jackie Lambchops, Squeak E., Beans, and JJ) since April 2011, but she also admits in her interviews and tweets about her love for water aerobics. With her and her daughter’s love for water, going to the ocean for water exercises is a great way to spend some family time as well as a fun way to shed some post-baby weight. It has also been noted that Mariah went to Florida for a workout-heavy vacation. Now that’s dedication!

Grant Hill's Career Changing Diet Tips

Plagued by injury for a good part of his time in the NBA, Phoenix Suns‘ forward Grant Hill credits his new diet for his recent resurgence.  Last year, at the age of 36, Hill played in all 82 games for the first time in his career.  He followed that up this season by starting in 81 of the Suns’ 82 games.

“When I was a rookie with the Pistons in ’94 I ate whatever I wanted.  Pregame, I’d stop at this street with five fast-food joints and go ‘Eeny, meeny, miny, moe.’  My second year, I hired a chef.  I thought home-cooked meals would improve my diet.  Instead, I ate a lot of steaks, pastas, and heavy cream sauces, and Kool-Aid.  It was always in the fridge,” says Hill.

Hill has now changed his diet to include more fish, fruits and vegetables.  He attributes his ability to keep up with the younger guys in the NBA to his healthy eating.

Here are some diet tips Grant Hill shared in the May 2010 edition of Men’s Fitness…

Don’t Be Drastic
“If you want to improve how you eat, make a few subtle changes to your diet first.  Don’t just go hardcore all at once or you’re likely to fall off the wagon.’

Drink Nothing But Water
“That means no soda, coffee, or juice.  You’ll find it hard to do, but most of us walk around dehydrated because we don’t drink the right stuff.”

Post image for Victoria’s Secret Workout and Diet: Alessandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and Doutzen Kroes

We’re back with more celebrity workout and diet tips from Victoria’s Secret models Alessandra Ambrosio, Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and Doutzen Kroes.

Alessandra Ambrosio

Her post-baby workout…
Alessandra Ambrosio returned to her model form in no time.  “We worked out every day. We didn’t have a day off because time was so short,” says Leandro Carvalho. “She was limited in the beginning,” Carvalho said of the Victoria’s Secret model. “She could not do crunches, sit-ups, lunges.”

“But Ambrosio did what she could – climbing, walking and using ankle weights in the early stages.  She later segued to cardio and Carvalho’s own special Brazilian Buttlift workout – a combination of ballet, squats, lunges and capoeira - for two hours a day,” reports the NY Daily News.

“She gained quite a lot of weight” during her pregnancy, Carvalho said. “She was indulging herself in delicious Brazilian food [and] she had to pay the price.” Ambrosio admits she enjoyed “a lot of ice cream,” but says “there’s no magic” to bouncing back – just hard work.

“I couldn’t have the crazy diets, the liquid ones or the 1,000 calories a day because I was breastfeeding. I think breastfeeding actually helps you to lose some weight,” reports EOnline.

“I’ve been trying pilates now, and I think it’s amazing,” Ambrosio also says.

Her diet…
“I like to wake up and have eggs benedict with a cappacino and orange juice. And then for lunch, I’ll have rice, beans and chicken or meat. And salad because I love salad. At nighttime I would have like Japanese food, like sushi, or some Japanese barbeque. And I love chips. Salt and vinegar – ah! I’ll go into the airport and buy like three bags of them. And I can’t help myself!” Alessandra Ambrosio dished to Hollywood Life.

Her weakness…
“Chocolate fondue is my favorite thing in the world,” Alessandra confessed.
