Celebrity Trainer Keeps A-Listers Fit With Fab Fruit
We happen to adore this celebrity trainer, because he seems to make sense out of diets and exercise. He works you hard, but then again, he seems to keep his patience, and above all, he's fair.
We don't know Harley Pasternak personally, but we WISH he could be our trainer.
And if you think we're just padding his resume with a lot of fluff, just take a look at a few of his famous clients:
Jennifer Hudson. Alicia Keys. Megan Fox. Orlando Bloom. Kanye West. LL Cool J. Rick Fox. Halle Berry. Katy Perry. Miley Cyrus. And the A-list list goes on and on.....
Today, Harley Pasternak has a super diet beauty tip, one that's easy to follow and does a body good. He talked to People.com about some fab fruit. He suggests that not every fruit is the same when it comes to great nutrition:
"That's why my golden rule with fruits is to choose the ones that have either edible skin or edible seeds. Fruits like apples, peaches, plums, apricots, cherries and pears are just a few great examples of fruits with edible skin. Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and kiwis are example of fruits with edible seeds."
And he goes on to semi-reject these:
"The fruits that I prefer to minimize (not eliminate – there are no "bad fruits"), are primarily tropical fruits like bananas, mango, papaya and pineapple. These fruits, not surprisingly, are higher in calories and sugar, and are lower in fiber than ones with edible skin and/or seeds or citrus fruits.
Oh, Harley....Please don't take our pineapple away!
We think these are wonderful diet tips. People seem to enjoy a lot of fruit in the summer months, and it's interesting to see which fruits are more diet-fab than the others.
