Next up is the daughter of the delectable actress Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson who gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy, which she needed to shed quickly before commencing on her next film. Her previous diet wasn't up to the task so she changed to one of the high protein, smaller portion, diets. This diet combined with an exercise regime that included weight training and cardio exercises did the trick. Kate was back to her old delicious self in just four months. She even managed to tone up the tummy muscles just as an added bonus. Well, I never... exercise and nutrition... who would have thought?

Oprah's exercise regime is over five days a week and includes 30 minutes treadmill and using free weights. Her current diet, she has used a few, is like that of Jennifer's consisting legumes, fish, nuts, fruits and vegetables, chicken and dairy products that are lowfat. She also avoids white sugar and flour. Oprah also credits her trim figure to her habit of not eating anything after seven in the evening.

And it's that gorgeous Gwyneth Paltrow in fourth spot. Who would believe that this perpetually slim Academy award-winning actress ever has to resort to dieting. Well, apparently she does. Gwyneth actually follows a healthy eating plan pretty much the same as Oprah's, avoiding sugar and white flour. She usually follows a macrobiotic diet, eating foods like vegetables, brown rice, and lean meat. She also eliminated dairy from her diet, and does yoga everyday.

I think we'll let the band introduce the next mega star, drum-roll...yes, thats right... It's Madonna, the darling of the masses, miss material girl herself.

Well, every woman wants to model her body on our next celeb, It's Claudia Schiffer, that magnificent German supermodel, and what exactly does she attribute her svelt looks on? Nothing less than salad and steamed vegetables for dinner and in-between, eats only fruits. While on locations, she likes to nibble on black grapes washed down with tomato juice and herbal tea. Not at the same time, I hope.

And who could forget the sizzling supermodel, Christie Brinkley, who insists that she owes her all-American good looks to being a vegetarian. Another stunner to shun junk food, however she admits to snacking on sweet potatoes, wow... she obviously likes taking risks, and she sticks to a liquid juice diet when she needs to slim down fast.

Who said that celebs are just like ordinary people? Sure, they need to look after themselves, how they look really is their business. The big difference is the amount of pressure they are under to look so good all the time. However, if they can do it...?
