10 Celebrities Who Swear By Intermittent Fasting

Celebrity Sightings in New York City - June 20, 2018

Terry was one of the first celebs to hop on this bandwagon. He eats his first meal around 2 p.m. (!), and he’ll eat as he likes until 10 p.m. He’ll break the daily 16-hour fasting period for coffee or tea, but that’s about it. Also, he’s supposed to be the nicest guy, regardless of the fact that he is probably starving until 1:59 p.m. every day. It’s all very impressive, really.

Mr. Holmes follows a bit of a different regimen. He’s on the 5:2 diet, which means two days a week he eats only about 500 calories or fewer. The other five, he’s much less restricted.

The Bachelor’s Brittany Hockley claims ‘intermittent fasting’ is the secret behind her bikini body

While most people often feel like eating their feelings after a break up, The Bachelor’s Brittany Hockley has been nothing but steadfast in maintaining her enviable figure.

In an interview with body+soul in August after filming the reality series, the 30-year-old jilted TV star opened up about her strict diet and exercise routine, claiming ‘intermittent fasting’ is the secret to her fit physique.

‘For the last six months or so I’ve started intermittent fasting, my eating window would be from 10.30 to 6.30pm most days. I do this five days a week as on weekends I love going out to brekky,’ she told the publication.

Intermittent fasting, a militant exercise regimen and a strict diet: The Bachelor’s Brittany Hockley reveals the secrets behind her killer bikini body… but says she still indulges in ice-cream and red wine! 

A typical breakfast for the radiographer usually consists of oats with berries and yoghurt, or avocado, poached eggs and goats cheese on toast.

She has a mid-morning almond milk latte, before eating a salad with fish or chicken and roasted vegetables at lunch.

Her dinner menu is quite similar to lunch, and she’ll usually have salted caramel ice cream for dessert, as well as the occasional glass of red wine.

‘Dinner is always fish or chicken with a big bowl of salad and vegetables,’ she added.

But it’s her almost militant exercise regimen that takes the most commitment.  

‘I go to the gym most days, alternating between HIIT workouts, F45 and weights,’ she told body+soul.

Brittany was one of the finalists on this year’s Bachelor, who was famously dumped by commitment-shy Nick Cummins, 31.  

‘I gave it my all and was always true to myself, honest and risked it for the biscuit,’ she wrote on Instagram shortly after the plot twist finale. 

‘I wore my heart on my sleeve and I’m proud of myself for putting myself out there. Whilst this is not my happy ending, I made the most beautiful friends.’ 

She deserves it! Brittany admitted she’ll often have salted caramel ice cream for dessert, as well as the occasional glass of red wine
