Skinny in a Jiffy
The actress and singer of Puerto Rican descent dazzles on red carpets. How does she manage to always look fabulous? Marc Anthony's wife is a fan of girdles. Her favorites: the Yummie Tummy brand.
To make the movie Dreamgirls the American singer had to shed 20 pounds. She went on a diet known as Master Cleanse for two weeks, drinking only a potion made with hot water, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper.
Days prior to a photo shoot, the Puerto Rican actress doesn't eat salted food because "it swells you" and then you drink too much water. She also takes supplements to speed up her metabolism or a diuretic two days before, all supervised by a trainer or a doctor. Sánchez says this is also a way to cleanse her body.
Three days before attending an event, the Primer impacto (Univisión) anchor stays away from carbs and highly salted food to keep her body from retaining fluids. Also, two days before and on the same day of the event she works out double the usual time with her personal trainer, focusing on the body areas that would be most visible with the dress she will be wearing. "For instance, for the recent Premio Lo Nuestro event we worked hard to tone my shoulders and arms because they were the most visible with the design I wore," she says.
To get rid of the few pounds she put on during the Christmas holidays, the American actress underwent a detox diet. For a week, Paltrow drank beet, carrot, apple and ginger juices and said goodbye to dairy products, caffeine and processed food.
The beautiful Puerto Rican model starts a rigorous diet one week before walking on a red carpet. She eats six times a day to speed up her metabolism, drinks water instead of sodas, and snacks on peanuts and almonds to avoid the dizziness caused by strict diets. Olavarría confesses she has also worn girdles.

The The Curious Case of Benjamin Button actress looked spectacular on the Oscars red carpet. Her secret: a Spanx girdle.
"I've tried everything," says the Dominican actress and anchor. One of the things she does to shed a few pounds is drink an aloe vera shake with lemon on an empty stomach every morning for one month. "This cleanses the toxins that keep you from losing weight," she says.
