Want to get your body ready for bikini season, just like Dancing With the Stars celeb Cheryl Burke? Take a few tips from OK! as we count down the 10 weeks before you hit the beach, with tips and tricks from the experts for getting that bikini body you’ve always wanted!
Diet: Add Seafood to the Menu
“Eat five servings of fish a week,” says celeb nutritionist Oz Garcia, who works with Heidi Klum. Not only is it low-cal and high in protein, but some, like salmon and tuna, are packed with omega-3 fatty acids. “These healthy fats make you feel fuller,” says Oz. Also, they help regulate hormones for optimum weight loss: “You need to eat fat to lose fat!” he says.
Workout: Tone Your Body
“It’s time to work on big muscle groups,” says David Barton of DavidBartonGym (members include Gwen Stefani). The key is to add muscle — it burns more calories than fat and creates a toned look. “Do squats and use machines with pushing or pulling moves, like the rowing machine,” he says.
Motivation: Do Exercises You Love
Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke spends up to six hours a day doing what she loves — dancing! To keep up her energy, she fuels her metabolism with small meals throughout the day, she says.
