Bradley Cooper Depressed Over Losing A-Team Body

Do You Pig Out After Shaping Up For a Big Event?

Big events can be big motivation to get in shape — class reunions, weddings, and holiday family gatherings cause some people to shift their fitness routines into overdrive. And let's not forget bikini season. Most of you said that you were definitely working out harder to look good in a bikini this year. But what happens when the event is over — do you stick with your fitness routine, or end up going back to your pre-event diet and gym schedule? According to SF Gate, Bradley Cooper is feeling the pangs of losing the ab-tastic body he once raved about, but couldn't resist the allure of pizza once he stopped filming.

"I shrunk back down two weeks after we finished shooting. It was depressing . . . I was craving pizza so badly that the night we finished shooting I ate two arugula and prosciutto pies and a plate of Cherry Garcia ice cream with trail mix on top of it. And I did it again the next night."

And since heart health and strength decline once your workout routine stops, it's important to keep up a fitness routine if you want to keep that new bod of yours. Given that Bradley is back in the gym, it'll be no time until he's looking like "Faceman" again — though we've got no complaints about how he's currently looking. Tell me . . .

I eat the same year round, no matter what! No need to "pig out" after an event because I never RESTRICT anything from my life!! I love everything I eat.

I don't really get it when people do this. I have never deprived myself enough before an event to the point where I felt it was necessary to pig out afterwards.

I've done this, sure.. like, I went to Vegas this year and worked out to look hot in my dresses. I even ate pretty sensibly while there. BUT, when I got back home, I went to dinner and really went to town. :) Or last year my sister got married, so I worked out for a few weeks a bit harder and tried toning my bridesmaid arms. I didn't eat very much the day before or the day of, as to not look bloated in pictures.. and boom, whaddya know, after the wedding and dancing, I was in the kitchen with a bunch of bridesmaids polishing off a LOT of cake. Haha! We're human and women. It's okay to treat ourselves once in a while if we've earned it.. however then it's back on track. And my workout schedule doesn't usually change at all.

Since I've never tried to work out extra hard for one event, including my wedding, I really haven't had this problem. I try to maintain a healthy pattern with working out and eating balanced regardless of what event is coming up. If I can't maintain what I'm doing for the long haul, I don't see a point.
