Beverly Hills trainer Jackie Warner recently published a diet book, This Is Why You’re Fat, and debuted a new reality TV show, Thintervention, on Bravo. On Thintervention, Jackie overhauls the workout and diet habits of eight Los Angeles residents. The program includes a diet makeover, strength training, and intense cardio workouts. The show incorporates the strategies Jackie discusses in This Is Why You’re Fat. She recently highlighted a few tips in an interview with That’s Fit. Check out what Jackie Warner has to say about her weight loss diet and workout!
Jackie Warner realizes that it is nearly impossible to change years of bad eating habits in one day. That is why the first two weeks of her diet plan focus on adding healthy and fat burning components to her clients’ current diet. Jackie says, “I designed the first two weeks of my food plan to be a “non-diet.” When you add fat-burning and detoxifying foods (water with lemon, for example) into your daily calories, you rapidly change your body chemistry to satisfy physical and emotional hungers. I came upon this by accident; I always ask new clients to keep seven-day food journals and what I noticed is that most of them either skipped breakfast or ate high-calorie breakfasts followed by a long stretch of starvation and a huge dinner. By adding in new foods, their cravings for sugary and fatty foods decreased, the body starts correcting itself within a couple days and you no longer have cravings in a week or two.”

Last weekend millions of romantics celebrated Valentine’s Day by hitting the theatres to catch the romantic comedy Valentine’s Day. The stellar cast, comprising A-list hotties including Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Julia Roberts, and Taylor Swift, was the main reason many ladies and gentlemen caught the film.
Julia Roberts has been America’s sweetheart for generations, and despite giving birth to three kids, still has one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood. Julia’s personal trainer Kathy Kaehler says, “I try to keep it very creative so she doesn’t get bored.” Julia enjoys working out in the pool at her Malibu home to spend more time with her kids. In the pool, Julia does a mix of running, cross-country ski movements and arm strengthening exercises. The water adds resistance creating an overall body toning experience. Julia’s trainer says, Julia “needs to look good on-screen, but she also needs the strength and energy to run around after her kids offscreen.” “Swimming and water exercises are great ways to build up endurance and stay fit.”
If you are interested in a quick water workout like Julia’s, try this routine designed by her trainer Kathy. First, swim a few easy laps to warm up (about 5 to 10 minutes). Then, put on a flotation belt and head to the deep end. Run at an easy pace for 60 seconds, a moderate pace for 90 seconds, a fast pace for 60 seconds, and repeat 5 times. Keep going if you want a bigger burn.

Black Eyed Peas leading lady Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson has topped the 13th annual “Famed Hottest Looks” list as having Hollywood’s most desired figure. Of course the songstress has been “working on her fitness” since well before she sang about it in 2006.
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen took the 2nd spot, with House star Olivia Wilde rounding out the top 3.
Best body on the male side went to Hugh Jackman, with Eric Dane and Matthew McConaughey following.
Last year’s winner, Jennifer Aniston, didn’t crack the top three on the list compiled by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons Richard W. Fleming, M.D. and Toby G. Mayer, M.D. The doctors keep track of the most requested celebrity body parts and release the list each year.
“Fergie’s body is proportional – that’s really the key,” Dr. Fleming told Tarts. “ Women like Jennifer Aniston and Eva Longoria have topped the “best body” list in the past. They’re not as curvy as Fergie is, but they’re all proportional.”
