Fitting into slinky evening gowns takes work and dedication. Celebrities have been following plans created by their team of trainers and nutritionists for months in order to look their best during awards season. They get to show off the fruits of their labor at the Oscars on Feb. 24. Lisa DeFazio, RD shared some of the tips she gives to celebrities with Examiner in an interview on Feb. 22.
Lisa has worked with a long list of celebrity clients, though she keeps the specifics confidential. She partners with Perez Hilton to offer her insight and advice. She is a frequent guest on network morning shows and has been featured in a wide variety of magazines, including US Weekly.
DeFazio says celebrities struggle with temptations just like everyone else. They don’t have any super powers that help them fight off the urge to eat junk food. Developing the willpower to resist the catered meals on set and free goodies they are sent is part of the job. Simply put, celebrities are paid to look good.
That’s where a good support team of professionals like Lisa comes in handy. Here is the advice she gives celebs to help them get and stay red carpet ready:
- No eating within two hours of bedtime.
- Cut back on carbs a few days before the big event.
- Substitute high protein smoothies for breakfast or lunch. DeFazio recommends using almond milk, berries, protein powder and a banana.
- Focus on protein and vegetables at dinner instead of carbs.
Lisa DeFazio says Oscar nominees and attendees are paying extra attention to what they are eating this weekend to ensure they look slender on the red carpet. Yogurt, protein bars, almonds, fresh fruit and plenty of water fuel many stars as they get ready for the Oscars.
