“I was working with a trainer. You’d be amazed the amount of weight you can drop by halving your portions. I know it sounds crazy, but do it for two weeks and watch what happens.’ I just cut back my portions, I stopped eating late at night, and I work out a little more than I used to, and I literally dropped 18 pounds in a month. I think it happens when you get really busy. But when I’m on my off-time — girl, those 18 might come back!”
When I want to drop weight quickly, I cut back on my cardio and do a lot of weights instead. I also cut out all fruit and eat a lot of protein and vegetables. My go-to moves are walking lunges, leg raises, and my favorite: four sets of 15 ballet pliés, holding 8-pound weights.
Olivia Wilde who is very thin told Australian news site news.com.au last week, that she avoids traditional workouts in favour of Hollywood’s current obsession SoulCycle:
‘It’s a 45-minute cardio workout and you get your weights in, too.
‘I could never do a session of weights and 10,000 squats against a wall – that would drive me insane.’
“That’s the best health change I’ve ever made. I lost a few pounds and have much more energy. My new favorite thing is my soup diet. I make a ton of nutritious ones, like butternut squash and vegetable. When I want to drop 5 pounds quickly, I eat them for every meal for about 10 days.”
‘I work out, like almost every day. I go to the gym, I do yoga. Oh, and triathlons!’

“I tried to do it healthy, which I understand there isn’t any way to do it healthy,” she said. “I ate brown rice and these protein drinks made out of stuff called pro-Gain . . . Oh God, it was just disgusting. I never had a fun meal, basically. It just was discipline.”
Field told Leno it took her nearly six months to gain the 25 pounds, and another year to lose it.
“I began to work out like a mad fiend. I had two trainers. I really worked out hard 4 times a week,” said Field. “I eventually had to have knee surgery. My little frame couldn’t hold this amount of weight.”

‘I work out twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. I’ll start with half an hour of running and then some yoga to stretch everything out so everything is warm. In the evening I do butt lifts. It’s important to be fit, but you shouldn’t get too skinny. You need to have curves.’
