Girls Aloud diet and body secrets
Thursday 12 July 2012
They make up one of the most successful and glamorous girl bands in the world, so it’s no surprise that the Girls Aloud ladies know a thing or two about staying in shape. We know that Cheryl loves to indulge in haribo and that Kimberley has a soft spot for fish and chips, but how to the girls like to maintain their enviable bodies.
Cheryl follows the Eat Right 4 Your Type diet, which involves eating and avoiding specific foods based on your blood type. In an interview Cheryl admitted the healthy eating plan helps her feel happier.
“I watch what I eat, not to stay slim but to feel good,” she said.
“I have a really hectic schedule but it does have some health benefits - I get to work out without working out. It's literally full-on performances back to back, and all the choreography, training and rehearsals that go into them, that's a real workout.
“My only trouble is that I can't do without sugar,' she said. 'Sometimes I feel like I just need a chocolate bar.”
“To be honest you can’t put yourself under that much pressure, so I don't deny myself anything.”
Sarah follows a healthy diet ‘A typical daily diet for me will be coffee in the morning, and maybe a bowl of cereal or fresh fruit, although I am not a huge breakfast fan. Occasionally I might make pancakes with bacon. For lunch I’ll have a ham salad sandwich or a salad or sushi. Dinner is my favourite meal. If I eat too much for lunch I don’t enjoy my dinner. I’ll have a spag bol, Chinese or chicken kievs and salad.
“I tend to eat what my body feels like it needs. I like my sugar, but everything in moderation. It’s all about the balance. If you’re eating really well most of the time, there’s no reason not to have something you fancy.”
She also works out with a trainer and practices yoga.
“I eat lots of blueberries. I’m completely addicted to them. And I’m devoted to Marks & Spencer – as long as my fridge is stocked with an assortment of its delicious food, I’m happy!
“I don’t work out. And I’ve never dieted! If I’m run down, tired or worried then I can drop weight overnight. I eat loads and have big portions, but my mum’s side of the family are thin. My only real exercise is walking the dogs.”
“I don’t want to preach to people and say that my diet is perfect. Of course it’s not. I think it’s what you do most of the time that counts. This is the key for me.
“I am into quite a good routine, training three times a week, running outdoors for 30 minutes and doing weights and resistance exercises. I do enjoy working out on my own but I have to push myself to do my lunges which are the ultimate move for getting that burn in your bottom!”
