Ballerina Diet Advantages

Its really low calorie diet which can effectively make you lose weight. Ballerina diet will also help you get in a perfect shape and also preserve endurance!

Eat lots of lean protein (like beans and nuts – have some meat, it is rather good for you as long as you do not eat the fat!), fruits and dark vegetables, and whole-grain breads and grains.

If you eat “whole wheat” it’s like the same as eating white bread; except with white bread all the good fibers have been stripped away. These “whole grains” keep you fuller longer than white breads like cakes, cookies, and sweets.

Also, stay away from high-fat dairy products (low-fat dairy products are a great source of protein and vitamin B6).

To get a flat stomach, you should eat many small meals throughout the day. Eat just enough until you feel full; don’t overeat!

Ballerina Diet

Wait until you feel hungry again and eat a little more. Focus on only eating healthy food items, and do not eat any sugar; it will only make you feel tired and will cause you to crave more – a vicious cycle!

Eat food raw to avoid the loss of enzymes that result from cooking food, which also decreases its nutritional value. Raw food, unlike cooked and processed foods, takes longer to digest, so you feel full longer.

Your body will slowly absorb the nutrients so you’ll avoid any spikes or drops in your blood sugar until your next meal. Some of the best raw foods are:

  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Zucchini
  • Dark leaf lettuce
  • Onions
  • Pears
  • Tomatoes
  • Watercress
  • Broccoli
  • Bananas
  • Apples
  • Berries

Make sure you eat nothing 2 hours before you sleep. Your body slows down when you sleep so you can’t digest food properly. And if you go to bed really late, don’t eat past 9:30 pm, because foods eaten late are normally stored as fat.

Drink plenty of water. You should replace it with all your regular beverages, especially soda and sugared drinks. Water will make it easier to lose weight. Consider flavored water as an alternative if you must. Drinking lemon water is said to be a natural way of speeding up your metabolism as well. Warning: Drinking fruit juice may seem healthy, but it usually contains just as much sugar as fizzy drinks. If you like juice, try making it yourself.

Your urine should be a light yellow color; dark yellow with an odor could be a sign that you are dehydrated.

Ballerina Diet Exercise

  • Do aerobic exercises daily at 30 minutes minimum and include 1-2 days of rest break each week. Anything that brings your heart rate up. Take up dancing, running, tae-bo, swimming,cycling and walking at a good pace.
  • To better work the entire abdominal region, vary your exercises: Crunches work the upper abdomen, leg raises work the lower abdomen, side bends work the obliques (also known as love handles). About 15 – 25 reps should be enough a day for certain exercises (but if you can do more than that, try adding a weight to your feet for the leg lifts). Sure, you can do 100 daily crunches. But if you’ve got a layer of fat covering up your abs work, then what’s the point? You need to burn the top layer of stomach fat to see the changes. Try the plyometrics and cardio exercises in the section below.
  • Do cardio exercise. Cardio exercises are best, as they will heat up your core temperature and improve circulation, both of which will aid you in acquiring a flat stomach. You should aim for interval cardio training, such as alternating between sprinting and power walking. You can try sprinting for as long as you can. When you become too tired, you should walk. When you feel that you’ve caught your breath, sprint again. Do these alterations for a total of 20 minutes at a time.
  • Include plyometrics. Plyometrics are exercises that require explosive power. They are not just cardio, but strength training as well. Some great plyometric exercises you can do at home include:Modified jumping jacks. Start standing, then jump up with hands and feet spread apart, creating an “X” in the air with your body, then land back in standing. Repeat as many times as you can. Squat-Thrust-Push-ups. Start in push-up position, do one push-up,then push off with your feet and pull your knees up to your chest so your feet land between your hands(still on the ground in push-up position), then jump as high as you can, arms overhead. Then squat back down with your hands on the floor, then jump back to push up position again. Repeat; do as many as you can do well with good form. Cartwheels. If you don’t already know how to do them, once you learn, you can do multiple cartwheels in a row. The quicker you do them, the greater the ploy benefit.
  • Strength training. This will improve your muscular tone as well as increase your metabolism so you’ll burn calories faster. Best strength training exercises (that don’t require a gym or weights) include:
    • Push-ups
    • Pull-ups (You can do these in a park hanging from the branch of a large tree)
    • Squats
    • Lunges
    • Yoga arm balances
    • Handstands (these take a lot of strength when repeated over and over)
  • Consider some form of anaerobic exercise as well. Some simple resistance training or lightweight lifting will not only help you burn fat more efficiently, but tone up the rest of your body as well.
  • Raising your metabolic rate is crucial. The higher your metabolic rate, the more energy (and thus fat) you’ll burn even when you aren’t doing anything. Try compound exercises like deadlifts with heavier weights. See “How to Do a Deadlift” for more information.

To increase your metabolic rate, increase the frequency of your meals to 6-8 times a day. Every 2 to 3 hours, ingest a small meal. This increased frequency will put your metabolism into overdrive. Do not overeat. For greatest effect, only eat carbohydrates before 2:00 p.m, from then on only proteins.

Tips: Going to see a personal trainer or a doctor can help greatly as they can give you a dietary/work-out plan that will help you keep at your desired weight rather than going over it alone.

Get someone to work out with you so you’ll inspire each other. If you can’t find anyone, try imagining you are with someone you know, a celebrity or an athlete with abs you admire (this usually works better than actually working out with the said athlete). Pretend they’re with you as you work out.

Music will also do wonders to get a workout moving along! Make sure it’s upbeat and motivating. While crunches are good for your abdominal muscles, make sure that you have a well-rounded weight loss program. Millions of crunches won’t help if you eat buckets of ice cream every day!

Be patient! Some people find it harder to obtain a flat stomach than others, as this is dependent on your own personal fitness level.

Doing crunches on an exercise ball will specifically target your abdominal muscles, while doing them on the floor strengthens mostly hip muscle. Just the act of balancing on the ball alone will help tone abdominal muscles.

I tried all of it step by step and it didn’t work for me, so let’s move on



Even the best planned diet can come unstuck at a Christmas party, birthday dinner or barbecue. Often the temptations are just too great.

Yet models have some of the most active social lives of anyone, so exactly how do they do it and stay so slim?

It takes real discipline, but there are also plenty of tips and tricks that we use as models. Events like these are not just for fun, they are a part of the social networking that goes into a successful modeling career.

This page is about how we manage to diet successfully without compromising a fun social life.

Restaurant Food

When faced with a delicious menu, it’s all too easy to let your stomach do the ordering rather than your brain!


Here are some tips to help you stay on track when eating out in a restaurant.

  • At buffets, pick up the smallest plate you can find. Whatever size you choose, you will usually feel compelled to fill it!
  • Drink a Diet Coke or a cup of green tea before dinner, both will help to reduce your appetite.
  • Going to a restaurant when you’re really hungry is tempting fate.
  • Don’t follow the crowd and order a 3 course meal. If you feel that you have to, try to choose light options like a consomm√©, fruit plate or sorbet.
  • Order an appetizer instead of a main course – portions have grown in recent years and you really don’t need more.
  • Don’t order anything with sauce. That grilled chicken may sound light, but not if its drowning in a creamy sauce!
  • In an Italian restaurant, order the tomato-based sauces rather than the cream-based ones.
  • Order your food steamed, baked, grilled or poached, rather than fried or deep fried.
  • Substitute salad for the fries or potatoes that come with your meal.
  • Watch your salad dressing! Caesar salad can be just as fattening as a burger.
  • If the waiter brings you bread before the meal, send it right back or you’ll end up full before the meal.
  • You don’t need to finish the whole meal. Most restaurants are happy to provide a doggy bag.

Cocktail Parties

After a couple of drinks and a few rounds of the hors d’oeuvres tray, you suddenly realise that you’ve consumed about 3,000 calories without even realizing it.

That’s a pretty typical experience around Christmas time, but there are simple ways to survive a cocktail party without putting on five pounds.

  • Foods to avoid on the snacks table – samosas, chicken nuggets etc. Stay away from anything fried or covered in sauce.
  • By drinking Diet Coke with your cocktail, you can control your appetite and be better prepared when the hors d’oeuvres come around.
  • Find a place far away from the snacks table and do all your socializing there. Don’t be one of those people loitering around the hors d’oeuvres!
  • Limit yourself to one snack at a time. Eating slowly will help you to eat less.
  • Aim for dishes like the hummus platter, with carrot and celery to dip. Even though hummus has a lot of calories, eating the vegetables will help.

Alcoholic Drinks

When you have a birthday party or a work event to go to, its often extremely hard to avoid having a drink or two.

Here are some tips to make sure that you don’t ruin your diet in the process.

  • Light beers have fewer calories and will slow down your drinking.
  • Order your drinks with soda instead of tonic. Tonic has a surprising number of calories. Fruit juice is even worse.
  • For a little more flavor to your drink, try Diet Coke or Diet Sprite as a mixer.
  • Try a white wine spritzer (white wine and soda). Its a great low calorie summer drink.
  • Drink a glass of water before going.

Finally a few general tips:

  • If really hungry, have some tea, or even veggies beforehand.
  • If at a restaurant drink at least a full glass of water before the food comes. Take a sip in between each bite.
  • Eat slowly.
  • Sabotage food with too much salt, etc.
  • Try eating with opposite hand (if right handed use left hand and vise versa)
  • To avoid temptation, don’t even look at the section of the menu with the fattening foods.
  • Out of sight, out of mind, out of body.
  • Stick to ordering items including the words ‘ baked’ ‘broiled’ and ‘steamed’.
  • Always order sauces on the side
  • Dip the tines of your fork into the dressing then into meal, so you can still taste the sauce but with a fraction of the calories.
  • Eat half and pack it up
  • Start with soup or side salad to fill you.
  • Eat in the order of veggies first, protein next, carbs last.
  • Have salad with only negative calories vegetables.
  • Try not to be the first to start or last to finish.
  • Aim to drink at least 3 glasses of water during the meal.
  • Put your utensils down between each bite.
  • Talk a lot so you spend more time speaking than eating.
  • Look up the nutritional info online before going to the restaurant so you can decide before hand what you want.
  • Ask for lunch size portion or children’s size.
  • Say ‘No thank you’ to dessert.
