I was at the local 7-11 last week and saw a magazine article showing how Christina Aguilera has lost a lot of weight lately. The change was shocking as I haven’t seen or heard about her in quite a while and I knew that she had failed to get the baby weight off after the birth of her son Max back in 2008 and had kind of yo-yo dieted since then.
In reading up I also saw that Christina Aguilera is a really resonsible adult, giving time to charities and lending her name to lots of great causes. I love seeing people use their fame as a force for good.
The New Christina Aguilera
The magazine cover of Maxim was very hot (a little to slutty for my taste though, so I show you this one) and although it always seems to me like Maxim is the worst for objectifying women, in this case Christina looked great and was up to the challenge.
She has lost 49 pounds this year. Fabulous weight loss and tough for anyone famous or not to pull off.
What did Christina Aguilera Eat?
She eats blueberries, half an avocado and turkey bacon for a well balanced breakfast that has both lots of good fruit carbs as well as protein to get her day started well.
She frequently eats a salad with chicken breast for lunch. For dinner, she loves curry with chicken or fish. She sometimes indulges with a glass of wine but limits her alcohol intact overall.
For snacks between meals, she loves almond butter on celery and shrimp cocktail.
You can see that she has a fairly low caloric intake but at the same time she has a veery clean diet with no complex carbs and a pretty high protein intake. Although the diet seems extravagent and really yummy it would really get boring quickly eating this clean and is really tough to keep up over the long term.
And Christina Aguilera is a Gym Rat
To start her workouts Christina does a 10-20 minute walk on the treadmill and depending on her schedule will also run for about the same amount of time.
As far as weights, Christina works out 5 times a week and does a fairly heavy weight workout to bring up the metabolism and get great muscle tone. She does ab exercises every session without fail. She does up to 350-500 reps of sit-ups and other exercises like push-ups and lunges that focus on her core.
I used to really like her voice and she is obviously very popular but it seems that Christina Aguilera has really become committed to her fitness and that is a nice image and attitude to give forward to her fans.
