As Britney Spears prepares to hit the road again next week for her second concert tour of North America in less than nine months, the pop superstar — and mother of two young sons— has managed to get her body looking the best it has since the days of “Ooops!… I Did It Again” and “I’m a Slave 4 U.” And Brit herself is thrilled with her own transformation.
A source tells OK! that Britney — who flaunted her toned physique in a barely-there white Eres bikini for an Aug. 6 photo shoot in L.A. — is thrilled with her new figure.
“Britney used to hate her body when she looked in the mirror after having the boys,” a longtime pal of the singer tells OK!. “But last week she sent pictures home to [her mom] Lynne and wrote, ‘Look how good I look!’ ”

Melrose Place actor Ethan Erickson, who appears in Britney’s “Radar” music video and also worked on a Candie’s shoot with the performer, says she looked “dynamite” when they shot the company’s campaign several months ago. Of course, he’s even more impressed by her current bikini body. “I think the whole thing just screams, ‘I’m back,’ ” Ethan tells OK!.
The sexy mom of Sean, 3, and Jayden, 2, can credit her slamming new body in part to the Sunfare diet, a gourmet meal delivery company. Sunfare, which counts stars such as Eva Longoria Parker, Marcia Cross and Khloe Kardashian among its fans, incorporates a balanced, low-carb approach of three big meals and two snacks per day, all documented through the delivery system.
“When Britney is on Sunfare, she consumes approximately 1,100 to 1,200 calories per day,” a source reveals to OK!.
The other major factor behind Brit’s renewed physique is good old-fashioned hard work in the dance studio and on stage.
“Her outlet is dance,” the longtime friend says. “She’s still dancing at least two hours a day and sometimes she’ll rehearse up to eight hours a day.”
Still, says another insider, “It didn’t come easy. It was a long, hard road. Britney dedicated herself in such a focused way. We are all so proud of her, not just for her physical achievements but also for her mental and emotional ones.”
