Mama Mariah: Marvelous May Cover Of Shape 1 Year After Twins
It's almost ALL about the food you choose, so says Mariah Carey.
Check out the May cover of Shape magazine!
The mom-of-twins just 1-year later, is showing off a FLAT tummy that she credits with a structured eating plan.
"I used to be able to slim down just by exercising more, but that’s changed. Since having the babies, I realize that 90 percent of losing weight is my diet,".
And the 43-year-old singing sensation had shed 30 lbs. on the Jenny Craig plan in 3 months. It appears that Mama Mariah has maintained her svelteness and is still going strong 365 days later.
We would have to agree, that it's mainly about the diet, but let's not dismiss old-fashioned exercise. You NEED to get the body moving to tone up and burn calories.
So, the critics are already screaming, "Photoshop," about the Mariah May Shape cover. Big deal---aren't most, if not ALL people featured on magazine covers airbrushed to some degree?!
We think the superstar looks pretty darn amazing after giving birth to a set of twins.
And if you're looking for a flat tummy like Mariah's, here's a super exercise from Andie Hecker, the New York ballerina turned Hollywood trainer:
"This is the BEST way to work your abs without putting stress on your lower back," says Andie.
Lie down flat on your back with one leg resting on the floor and the other crossed over it. Lift the top leg to 90 degrees and slowly lower it. Repeat 40 times, alternating legs."
Repeat 40 times? Are you crazy?
That's a killer exercise, but like we have learned, nothing good comes easy.
