I'm sure if she dumped the pipe cleaners that she'll still come out with the same body she has with a good diet and exercise like she does already. Always trying to sell something...I'm glad I don't fall for such fads.

I will, however, buy their workout equipment, fitness/diet books/magazines, DVDs and cute workout clothes in a minute if they interest me. Lots of 'em.

Yeah, her diet doesn't actually look too radical. But, again. When I look at her, I am not really impressed with her physique, so I am really not too likely to do as she does. Just my opinion...

Here is where she talks about cleansing - 2 or 3 times a year. It doesn't seem too extreme... It also shows one of the diets she uses - again, not too extreme, just clean (and maybe a little pricey...)!

I heard Gwyneth Paltrow in an interview prattling
on and on about the inner cleansing diet she uses
to keep her weight under control.

Constant purging like that is more likely to ruin
her health, even if it does keep her thin as a rail.

I don't think colon cleansing is a healthy way to
keep the weight off, but thats just me.......

I have heard that Acai Berry has the most antioxidants of any berry, however it is extremely expensive. Someone tried to sell us one of the Monavie (spelling?) bottles and I think it was about $40 for one bottle of juice.

Using this stuff for weight loss is one of those wacko schemes. And I don't know if the cost would justify the benefits of the antioxidants. I just eat lots of regular berries.

Doesn't Gwyneth have some health/fitness program that she promotes on some website on the internet... I guess I better find it. It's called GOOP:

goop.com/

I think she even has her own diet she promotes. Has anyone seen or tried it? I thought it was supposed to be healthy. Not that I'm a big fan or anything, but if she is trying to promote something healthy, I support that.

Nope. Not Paris Hilton. Cameron Diaz keeps coming to my mind, but I KNOW it isn't her.... UGH! WHY can't I remember her name? Weird!


OH! Gwyneth Paltrow. The trainer's name is Tracey Anderson. emoticon

Is the skinny blonde chick - Paris Hilton?????

I saw a picture of Britney online this morning and
she did not look that thin and trim to me.........
I mean she was not fat, by any means, just rounded.

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

They taste good and are great for a smoothie.

Britney is full of it. She is on youtube working out with the same trainer that... oh WHAT is her name!??? has. Ummm... that skinny blonde star.
Here is a PIC of the trainer. Can't remember her name either. But she is on youtube training Britney before Britney's big comeback.
I think maybe Britney is a CRACK head, and maybe that is how she lost so much weight. LOL!

I don't know all the details and don't remember where I read this...but...I heard that there isn't really anything that special about acai berries. Just eat healthfully and you'll do great. My aunt-in-law is a monavie lover, but I've read some reviews on it and I'll just stick to my regular cheaper juice.

Acai is native to South America. I understand the berries are very fragile and that is why you only see the juice and supplements here. I have been taking a supplement for a while for antioxidant purposes. There is a company called MonaVie that I have seen at race expos that makes the juice. I've never bought any, only had samples. This summer when we vacationed in Mission Beach, we found a smoothie store. The owner was Brazilian and his specialty was a frozen acai granola dish. Yummy! As far as Britney's claim, highly doubt it!

Britney Spears went on David Letterman some time ago and stated that she lost 27lbs in one month just by taking Acai Berry Extreme. No exercise 'cuz she's not a fitness person. She said she thought she could lose the weight with all of her dancing, but that wasn't working.

The article said that after she said that that the sales for Acai Extreme were up very high and the company was estatic with the free endorsement.

What is Acai Berry exactly??

And there is absolutely no way she's not training before shows to get up that toned up last minute look. Her claims are a little out there, but I haven't heard anything about this before...
