How the Stars Get Bikini Ready

Life & Style is reporting on how our favorite stars are getting bikini ready this year. Looks like they are turning to Brazil. Brazilian trainer and author of The Brazilian Bikini Body Program, Regina Joseph, gives us the scoop.

Drew practices Pilates! Forget dieting! Drew Barrymore prefers to burn calories with a workout that includes Pilates, one of the most popular pastimes in Brazil. For a complete cardio session, fitness pro Joseph details a combo of core Pilates moves and capoeira (a Brazilian martial art that includes cartwheels, kicks and flips) in her book.
Cam eats early in the day! An always active Cameron Diaz gets going with a protein-packed breakfast of eggs and meat. "The beginning and middle of the day are when you need a big burst of energy," says Joseph. "In Brazil, evening meals are smaller and lighter." That leaves plenty of room for desert!
Denise's smart snack! "I need foods that energize me," says Denise Richards, who revs up on the Amazon-grown acai berry (now available in stores like Whole Foods Market. Says Joseph, "An Acai smoothie provides enough fiber and protein to last until lunch."
Kristen never feels hungry! "I stopped dieting because it made me binge," Kristen Cavallari tells Life & Style. The reality show alum solved her dieting dilemma by opting for smaller, more frequent meals (she snacks on almonds) to curb her cravings. Explains Joseph, "Meals and snacks spaced throughout the day help keep blood sugar up."
Gisele fills up on fruit! Brazilian-born Gisele Bundchen can thank her homeland for her supermodel bod. The Victoria's secret stunner says her fav foods are tropical fruits from her country - which she considers to be the "best place to live."

I love Kristen C. Her body looks great, healthy and fit. I am surprised that Gisele is as pale as she is in this picture. She is always tan on the runway and in shots- that's good make up I guess. Cameran and Kristen have the best though process regarding food and weight loss. Pilates works wonders. I do it almost daily and ride my bike. I also walk to work/school.

I can't help but be cynical. I'll bet the true "hollywood diet" is a combination of quickie weight loss diet/exercises with trips to the plastic surgeon and a lot of alcohol to make sure their dinner doesn't stay down.

WOW, I actually take her pilates mat classes at Equinox!! I had no idea she was so reputable. I love her class though, Sunday at 5:00 at the Greenwich Ave gym.

I think Kristen has the nicest body out of all of them..she's obviously healthy looking and toned..and as far her tan...compared to them it looks too much but i think it looks good.

All of them look great except for Kristen....yuck, why didnt she put that skin darkener on her face too, she doesnt look too awesome in that swimsuit either!!! Pleaseeee stop it with all of of this Bronze,Orange Skin and some are even going darker!! Ridiculous...just because you're not getting burned by the sun is no excuse to carry this overboard,its nothing to be admired...keep it natural or close to natural, no need to go that dark....looks like those who do that are trying to be another race...which..technically is so.

Kristen's body looks great! She must also do some workout to get flat abs.

I'm a brazilian and I basically do everything that Regina suggests above. Except I like Ashtanga Yoga better than Pilates, I can work body and mind at the same time, it's great. I also love açaí, it's a great source of energy, but be careful because it has lots of calories. Guaraná berries are also great.

I think Kristin looks really healthy, like she's not too skinny. However, she does look very orange! lol Drew has the cutest bathing suit though.

I love acai berries. It reminds me of the Naked Juice flavor - Pomegranate Acai. SOOO GOOD! :DROOL:

From these pictures Kristin is looking the best, but I also think her bikini flatters her better than the rest of them do. I also love a good tan, so maybe I'm a little biased.

I like normal bodies most. I loved Drew's, she's so natural and so beautiful but I do like Kristen and Denise's, too. Cameron and Gisele are too skinny. Sure they're not ugly at all but skinny women are gross...

I really don't like these. Most of the "stars" lie anyway when they are asked about their eating habits. ("Oh, I eat all the time! I'm NATURALLY a zero!! I can't keep the weight on!") They have all the money, time and help they can get - they aren't anything like me.

Denise sure does look great after having two kids!

I like Cameron's plan (Light eating = extra dessert!) and Kristin's plan (dieting = binge = true!) the best. As far as the best body goes, I'll be a diplomat and say they all do because they have plans that work for them!

Pilates is definitely awesome, however celebrities also have someone to tell them exactly what to eat, when to eat it, and their funds are not in question. Eating right is pricey LOL. I know!

Denise probably has had some lipo done ccsugar..I know she was a fit bunny prior to getting married but after two kids, I'm sure she's had help in that department. If I were her I would too. Her body is her bread and butter in a way.

I hope after I have kids I look as good as Denise!
