Between hectic shoots and packed event schedules, it’s always amazing to know how your favourite celebrities manage to stay fit and still rock that “just-got-eight-hours-of-sleep” glow on and off the screen. But fret not: their health and wellness “secrets” aren’t the stuff of unattainable rocket science or mysterious magic. In fact, a lot of them simply subscribe to some tried-and-tested fitness regimens designed to suit their unique lifestyles — something that many of us can probably learn a thing of two from.
So if you’re looking to give your health and wellness routines a little upgrade, read on and take your cue from these stars:
Sure she’s known for her stellar set of pipes, but it’s hard not to notice her seriously sculpted abs, too. The 22-year-old singer and new face of Adidas often likes to show off her chiseled torso, which she revealed to be the fruits of her regular 15-minute high-intensity workouts. Because Dua Lipa is constantly performing at different events and venues across the globe, she barely has enough time to hit the gym. However, her fit figure is proof that that’s never an excuse. Her go-to moves include a series of jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees.

When Sam Smith started taking to Instagram at the start of his weight loss journey, the internet could not look away. It didn’t take long for his new routine and diet to show some crazy good results, which he later credited to his nutritional therapist Amelia Freer. According to an article on The Independent, the singer complements his regular workouts with a day-to-day menu that is said to consist of veggies, fruit, lean meats, and some seafood. On the other hand, the chart-topping artist also regularly abstains from pastries and ice cream.
Sometimes, even top models need an extra boost. While Rosie Huntington-Whitely undoubtedly has an incredible fitness routine, she also enjoys the benefits of green juice in a user-friendly powder form. The Victoria’s Secret Angel is a fan of WelleCo’s The Super Elixir, which boasts 45 nutrients from a wide range of natural sources like pomegranate, turmeric, dandelion, and more. Although the price for this supplement is a bit steep at $135 (£107.40) a pack, fans of the supermodel and mum of one will be delighted to know that the market has plenty of affordable alternatives — if they know where and how to look. It’s important to watch out for supplements that are effective and safe to use. In this regard, PrettyMe emphasises how its Detoxi Slim line contains organic ingredients and complies with safety regulations. Because these supplements are derived from natural sources, you get a ton of other benefits aside from weight loss, like cleansing your body and amping up your metabolism.

Another celebrity who underwent a dramatic weight change is award-winning artist Adele, who is said to be an advocate of the Sirtfood Diet. Essentially, the diet requires one to eat only plant-based foods such as kale, buckwheat, and green tea. Despite these restrictions, Adele was happy to report that she did not have to feel so deprived, even enjoying red wine and cheese from time to time. For her, loading up on her phytonutrients and antioxidant compounds played a major part in her fitness journey.

After the singer dropped an impressive 19 kilograms, fans started speculating what Lily Allen could have possibly done to get her dramatic results. Though she sometimes claims it is because of her humble potato chip diet, her other, more realistic answer is that she maintains an active lifestyle and tries to make healthier choices. On top of the dancing that comes with her performances, she enjoys working out and makes it a point to eat food that is not mass-produced. In an interview, Allen said that she would rather head to her local supermarket to make her own ham and cheese sandwiches instead of relying on unhealthy room service.
