Everything Stars Did to Get Fit This Year From Keto to Three-a-day Workouts to Nixing Chewing

For many moms, the newborn stage is a tangle of middle-of-the-night feedings, few showers and even less time devoted to working out. Of course, Ciara is not most moms.

Determined to peel off the 65 pounds that came with daughter Sienna Princess Wilson, her 20-month-old with Seattle Seahawks quarterback husband Russell Wilson, the musician went the extra 1, 2 step.

"It was kind of like, wake up in the morning, breastfeed, eat a small meal, go train, come back in, breastfeed, eat another meal, go train, then come back, have another meal, and then a third training session at night," she recently revealed to Cosmopolitan of tripling up her daily workouts.

So basically whenever she wasn't breastfeeding, taking 4-year-old Future Zahir Wilburn (her son with ex Future) to school or eating what she called her "really strict meal plan", she was going hard in the gym. "My workout was really intense, but it was a commitment I made to myself because I wanted to feel good about me, you know, and, like, push myself," she explained to E! News at the 2018 American Music Awards in October. "And when you have babies, it does feel good when you're carrying your baby at, like, five months and you're like, 'Yeah, I'm back in my pocket, keeping it cute.'"

Welcome to Hollywood where everyone's got a dream and most of those ambitions pretty much require one to remain a fit size-two. 

Though necessary body positive strides have been made, industry standards can still be strict. Combine that with ever-present paparazzi cameras and you get why personal trainers are de rigueur for stars as are the chefs tasked with transforming lean protein and vegetables (hold the butter and the salt) into something palatable. Because unless you're blessed with the gold standard of metabolisms you're not eating carbs, sugar, dairy or pretty much anything that comes in a package.

But this year, some celebrities weren't content with just maintaining their standard clean diets and sweat-inducing workouts. Kelly Clarkson banned grains, nuts and even some vegetables in an effort to stick to an eating plan she credited with healing an autoimmune issue, Vanessa Hudgens played around with intermittent fasting and Viola Davis even committed herself to a solid food-free cleanse...that lasted all of two days.
