Many stars stay young and energetic, but Madonna beats them by fat. Imagine going on tours for weeks and dancing like the end of the world is coming for 2 hours straight each night. You have to be in top shape to be able to pull it off, especially if you aren’t young anymore.
The secret to Madonna’s fountain of youth is a super healthy lifestyle. If you think not eating junk food all the time is enough, you are wrong. Madonna never eats junk food and she never eats at restaurants either. According to her “I don’t really eat food in restaurants. You can never be sure what’s in it, can you?”. A very good point indeed. She only eats her own food that she knows is healthy and good for her body.
In Madonna’s diet you won’t find any industrial processed foods, alcohol, caffeine, most dairies and most spices. If she wants to lose some weight, which she rarely needs because of her active lifestyle and healthy eating, Madonna turns to a low calorie diet. The diet plan of Madonna’s low calorie diet is quite simple. Eat only healthy foods like fruits, vegetables and low fat meat and make sure you don’t exceed 800 to 1000 calories per day. In my opinion that is cutting your caloric intake too low, and without close medical supervision you might end up hurting your body.
Madonna needs to lower her caloric intake that much to shed 2-3 pounds because she doesn’t have that much fat to start off. When you have little fat you have to use drastic measures to make it depart from your body. But if you want to lose a lot of weight, for example if you want to lose 30 pounds, lowering your caloric intake to 1500 calories per day will help you achieve your goal. I bet you are eating a lot more than 1500 calories now, and any reduction will help you lose weight super fast.
The help her stay in shape, maintain her weight or even lose some excess fat, Madonna also uses the Macrobiotic diet and lots and lots of portion control. You can’t expect to stay in shape by eating lots and lots of food. Madonna also drinks lots of water, around 3 litters each day. If you aren’t drinking enough water, you should start today. There are lots of water health benefits that you don’t want to miss out on.
When it comes to exercising Madonna’s workout schedule is super intense. Madonna works out for 1-2 hours a day for 6 days a week. That’s a lot of workout. No wonder Madonna’s body is all lean muscles and her stamina is so amazing.
Madonna’s exercise routine is a mix of cardio, strength training and Ashtanga yoga. By constantly mixing up her exercise routine, changing her exercises and exercise order, Madonna avoids bulking up. That how she got and keeps her athletic body lean and toned.
If there is one thing you can learn from Madonna’s diet and exercise routine is that you need to invest the time and energy required if you want to stay fit and healthy for as long as possible. Madonna’s results are incredible, and she is rocking hard despite her age. You can follow in her footsteps and be super fit and healthy.
