Ladies and gents do you find it best to get protein by diet with a few shakes? Or are you taking the protein shakes post workout?

400-Calorie Tush-Toning Interval Workout
Running burns an insane amount of
calories and it also targets your tush and legs, so it's the perfect
workout if you're trying to slim down and tone up below the waist.
Add hills to your workout and you'll tone your lower body even faster and more effectively.
If you're new to hill work or tend to skip out because running on an
incline is challenging, walking briskly will do the same magic. This
interval workout combines walking hills and short sprints with just a
bit of incline to reduce the chance of developing shin splints. Aside
from a toned tush and thighs, intervals are also proven to target belly
fat, so it's doubly effective. In about 40 minutes, you'll burn over 400
You don't have to brave the cold to fit in an effective hill workout.

Set the treadmill incline to one, and after warming up begin this
workout. For each three-minute brisk walking interval, you'll need to
raise the incline to 15 percent (or as high as it'll go), and for each
60-second sprinting interval, you'll need to lower it to one. Adjust the
speed as necessary if either the walking or sprinting pace seems too
slow or fast.

The Foods Celebrity Trainers Won't Eat
We asked top celebrity trainers one question: is there any food item
you won't eat and recommend your clients avoid too? What we ended up
with was a wide variety of answers, and while many of these off-limits
foods seemed to make everyone's lists, there were a few answers that
surprised us. Keep reading to see which foods celebrity trainers like
Harley Pasternak, Jackie Warner, and Tara Stiles keep out of their
kitchen, and then vote on whether or not you agree.
David Kirsch: Fried Foods
David is a firm believer in steering clear of fried, fatty foods — of
course, what sometimes tastes the best is the worst for you. Trainer
Jonathan Ross agrees
and says fried foods are something he almost always steers clear of,
saying they're "completely destructive to the body." Fried foods are
widely available (and cheap), making them hard to steer clear of, but
the amount of trans fat they contain should be enough to scare anyone,
Teddy Bass: Refined Sugar
In addition to processed foods, Teddy is big on steering clear of
refined sugars. Our bodies desire fresh, organic foods for energy and
fuel, he says. Once you load up on the proper foods, you'll be primed
Tara Stiles: Alcohol
Want to erase a few years from your face? Stop with the fancy
cocktails, says yogini Tara Stiles: "No one wants to hear this one, but
if you want your body to operate optimally and look fantastic — and
younger — avoid alcohol." Given that Tara works closely with Brooklyn
Decker, this advice is clearly working! When it comes to weight loss,
giving up alcohol is a must for Tim Rich, personal trainer with Crunch
gym. Tim says alcohol is nothing but "empty calories" and suggests that
those looking to lose a few pounds should ditch drinking for 21 days;
after that, limit drinks to a few per week. Tim says he only drinks "a
few beers a month."
Harley Pasternak: Grapes and Bananas
Two foods noticeably missing from celeb trainer Harley Pasternak's 5-Factor are grapes and bananas. Harley, who counts
Katy Perry and Lady Gaga as clients, says, "No one is going to live a shorter life if they have bananas or grapes," but he recommends that his clients choose healthier fruits.
"I tell my clients to stick to fruits that either have edible skin,
edible seeds, or citrus — bananas do not have edible skin, nor do they
have edible seeds really, nor is it citrus. Most of the fiber and
nutrients that are in a fruit are in a fruit's skin. A banana is just
the densest piece of fruit that you can put in your body, and since it
doesn't have much fiber, it won't keep you full." As for grapes? "Grapes
have a special sugar in them called dextrose, which is the highest
glycemic sugar that you can possibly put in your body."

Jeanette Jenkins, Jackie Warner, and Valerie Waters: Processed Foods, Especially Refined Carbs
This was a big one for celebrity trainers Jeanette Jenkins, Jackie Warner, and Valerie Waters. Valerie, who has worked with
Jessica Biel, sticks to the mantra, "If a food item has ingredients you don't recognize or can't pronounce, you probably shouldn't eat it." Jackie says
that "everyone has to understand that bread, crackers, croutons, things
like that, that's sugar. As soon as it's in your system, it processes
straight to sugar then straight to fat." Jeanette Jenkins, trainer to
Kelly Rowland, steers clear of processed foods, because they "create
inflammation in the body and increase the risk of disease."
Steve Moyer and Yumi Lee: It's Not What You Eat; It's How Much
While trainer Steve Moyer is against eating trans fat, he follows the
rule of moderation — eat too much of anything, and the weight will
come. Regardless, he feels strongly that the quality of food should
generally be healthy.
Yumi Lee, who works closely
Jessica Alba, feels the same and says her client follows the 80/20 rule to maintain a healthy weight. "You can't be 100 percent all of the time, but you can be 80 percent all of the time," says Yumi.
John Damon: All Soda, Even Diet
YogaTone trainer Andrea Cirignano; Stephania Greco, a personal
trainer and group fitness instructor with 24 Hour Fitness; and celebrity
trainer John Damon, who works with
Whitney Port and Kristin Cavallari,
say that soda should be eliminated from everyone's diets — this
includes diet soda, too. For John, soda just doesn't make sense: "It has
no redeeming qualities." We couldn't agree with them more. Drinking soda has been linked to several health issues
like dental decay, bone loss, and hypertension. It's also loaded with
sugar — not a good thing for any healthy diet. Diet soda doesn't fare
much better: studies link the consumption of diet soda to both weight gain and stroke risk.
Jackie Warner: Yogurt
Jackie Warner says that if you're looking to lose weight, "
get away from yogurt completely." For Jackie, most yogurts on the market are filled with sugar — her number one food vice
and the reason "people are heavy and sick in this country." While we
agree with Jackie that many of the yogurts on the market are brimming
with sugar, Greek yogurt is a must in our book!

Jarett Del Bene: Margarine
Jarrett Del Bene, best known for working with
The Hills alumnae Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge,
says that margarine is number one on his off-limits list: "It's loaded
with empty calories and is packed with trans fat, which is the worst fat
David Kirsch and Valerie Waters: Gluten
Famous for helping
bounce back postbaby, David Kirsch stays away from gluten in processed
foods: "I try to steer clear of gluten as much as possible — it's
awfully bloating." Valerie Waters also steers clear of certain
gluten-filled foods like pancakes, waffles, muffins, and most cereals.
Says Valerie, "Those foods will not only make me fat, they make me want

I remember watching Jackie Warner's show a few years ago and her saying steer clear of yogurt. I haven't touched it since. I'm a work in progress with the rest of the list.
