As we approach yet another new year, it's time to make some resolutions — and what better way to start off 2018 than by opting to get in shape? Whether it's for weight loss, energy, or a quick tone-up, we asked our favorite stars about their diet and exercise regimens so that we can follow suit.
From how they eat to how often they exercise, stars like Jenni "JWOWW" Farley, Remy Ma, Nina Agdal, and Kelly Rowland spilled the beans on their enviable figures. But we've all got a tough road ahead.
“Weight loss is the least likely New Year’s Resolution to be achieved. Research shows that fewer than one percent of people with a serious weight problem are going to get into a right-sized body in any given year,” New York Times Best-Selling author and founder of Bright Line Eating, Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson, told USA Today. However, she continued, “If you take Jan. 1 as an opportunity to entrust yourself into the care of a proven system, then absolutely, [New Year’s resolutions] can be effective.”

"Pretty much, I eat like, broiled air with a side of air, drink some air on ice — you know, starving," she joked to Life & Style. In reality, "I recently decided to stop eating meat," she shared. "I didn't eat pork already, but I cut out chicken, turkey, I cut out the beef — [My husband Papoose] used to be so annoying whenever I ate a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich. I think the major, MAJOR thing was the soda and really sugary drinks. I drink a lot of water and try to get at least 30 minutes of cardio a day. I won't say 'diet.' I had to get that word out of my vocabulary. When you eat too much rice or something, you just feel horrible after — like, 'Oh God, now I might as well just eat everything.' It's a life change, and now if I have a bit too much macaroni and cheese, then I don't feel bad. It's just like, 'Hey, it's just mac and cheese. It's not like I ate a cheeseburger like I really wanted to do!'"
"I try to keep it a fine balance. I eat a lot of vegetables, obviously, like there's no secret to it — what everyone tells you, eat your veggies, lean protein, fish mostly, but also be able to have a meal that you enjoy. Whether it's a burger or pizza, whatever it is, and just work out regularly," she explained. "Like, I work out five to six days a week for an hour at least, and I do it because I feel better after. Not just because it's supposed to be good for you, but I like it, I like the way I feel."
"I call [my daughter] Chanel my human liposuction! I was a lot bigger, then when I got pregnant with her she sucked the fat out of me. I was like, 'What the heck? I need to be pregnant my whole life!' Then when I had her, that's when the weight came back on," she revealed. "But now that I'm a mom, I don't [worry] so much about being in shape. It's weird because you change. Your mentality changes so much and you think, 'I don't need it as much. I'm a mother. I don't need to have zero percent fat.' I'm more about being relaxed and comfortable. I love food. When I turned 30 years old, I never did cardio in my life, and started to need it and once I did, I started losing more fat. I had to hit the treadmill a little more — but it's a must-have after you hit 30. Even if you just walk around the block."
"I don't train seven hours a day, six days a week anymore!" the former Olympian explained to Life & Style. "I definitely try to work out every day and I love mixing it up between pilates, hot yoga, soul-cycle, running outside — in the winter it gets a little hard, not impossible, but a little bit harder living on the East Coast — so mixing it up and doing different things. For my diet, especially around the holidays, I think it's super important to indulge a little bit, because it's a fun time to be with your friends and family. There are a lot of yummy treats, but also I've lived by everything in moderation. If you know you have a party coming up on a Saturday, maybe Monday through Friday try to be a little bit more disciplined with your eating habits, then know you can indulge on a Saturday."
