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!

Post image for Mad Men Star January Jones Encourages Curves

Little over a year ago, Mad Men-star January Jones, who plays Betty Draper, was scolded by the show’s producers for looking too thin. A criticism seldom heard by Hollywood starlets. At an AMC network party, January Jones told reporters, “I got told a couple of days ago that I look too skinny, and I was in trouble.” She said, “I’m naturally pretty thin, so I’m trying.” Imagine that – being criticized for a healthy diet and sticking to a workout routine.

According to a recent interview with Tatler magazine, January Jones says Mad Men producers continue to push the hourglass shape. Jones said, “They tell us to gain weight, gain weight, gain weight, because they want a soft, voluptuous woman which they were [back then] which is beautiful, as it should be.” According to Jones, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner advises the ladies to eat a healthy diet but avoid tough workouts at the gym. “He would prefer we didn’t work out and that we eat really well, so we look like healthy women”

Now, January Jones agrees with the Mad Men producers. She wants viewers to know “it’s OK to have curves and be a woman.” “I wish more women would realize that’s what men like.” To maintain her voluptuous figure, Jones says this about her diet, ”I eat whatever is at craft services. I’m a big eater. I’m from South Dakota, so meat, potatoes, carbs.” Now that’s a diet that’s easy to follow.

Furthermore, she has become a fan of the girdles she wears on set. She says, “It gives you such a nice shape.”

celebrity Demi Moore fittter than ever

For Demi Moore, getting older has improved her self-esteem and body image, and reduced her workout and diet obsession. Perhaps that is how she snagged younger hottie, Ashton Kutcher. You can check out Demi’s hot 47-year old body in her latest film, Happy Tears, which premiered in theaters this weekend.

There is no doubt that Demi Moore is blessed with good genes, yet also plagued with plastic surgery rumors. Despite your opinion on whether or not Demi has gone under the knife, everyone knows her hot body requires workout maintenance. In her 20′s, under the guidance of personal trainer Rob Parr, Demi was a workout-aholic. She would bike or hike up to two hours per day, six days a week. The morning before she gave birth to her second daughter, Demi completed a 22-mile bike ride. Although Demi exercised intensely in her younger years, she recently realized her workout motivation was misguided. She was not working out to feel healthy, but instead she says “I was trying to overcome my insecurity.”

Today, Demi Moore adheres to a more reasonable workout schedule. Demi enjoys swimming and rollerblading at her Idaho home. She also has her own weight room and sometimes trains with martial-arts expert, and ex-boyfriend, Oliver Whitcomb. By focusing on how she feels, instead of how she looks, Demi is now in the best shape of her life. Demi also works out with personal trainer Gregory Joujon-Roche, founder of Gregory Joujon-Roche’s Holistic Fitness. Gregory’s workout center focuses on creating overall well-being, a goal perfectly in-line with Demi’s new way of life.

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.
