Jessica Chastain and Jennifer Lawrence have a few hours before they walk the most important red carpet in Hollywood — the one leading to the Dolby Theater.
Although the ladies are flawless, you know they are doing everything within their power to look stunning for the Oscars.
RumorFix turned to fitness and weight loss expert Denise Austin for seven ways to get red carpet ready.
“The first thing you can do is the secret tummy tuck,” says Denise, who is sharing tips from her book Side Effect: Skinny. “Throughout the day, the ladies can tighten up their tummies for five seconds. They can do it while getting ready. All you do is tighten your abs, pull it in for five seconds and that’s it — that equals one situp.”
Tip #2: Tighten Up Your Butt. “Squeeze your buttocks,” she says,”if you don’t squeeze it, no one else will.” Denise says butt squeezes throughout the day will get the celebrities ready for “those awesome dresses.”
Tip #3: Improve Your Posture. “You can [visually] lose five pounds instantly by having good posture. If you slouch, your tummy has no where else to go but to pooch out.”
Tip #4: Drink Water & Lemon. “I recommend they stay away from salt 24 hours before the Oscars, because they don’t want to look puffy. They should drink warm water with a squeeze of lemon — that get’s rid of the salt in your system.”
Tip #5: Fall In Love With Pineapples. “Pineapple has an enzyme that helps reduce inflammation,” says Denise, who has been giving fitness and weight loss advice for 20 years. “It also has Vitamin C, which helps strengthen your collagen.”
Tip #6: Eat Foods To Give Your Skin A Glow. “Salmon is high in Omega 3 and it gives you healthy glowing skin. Cantaloupe has Lycopene and it accomplishes the same thing!”
Tip #7: Start Your Morning With Oatmeal: “When you start your morning with oatmeal — you cleanse yourself by getting rid of toxins.”
Denise says these tips and more are in her new book Side Effect: Skinny, which also has meal plans and her seven minute slim down routine.
Side Effect: Skinny was published by Jay McGraw’s publishing company, Bird Street Books, and he also owns RumorFix.
