As we all start to sculpt our bikini bodies here are a few tips and hints from the celebrities.

Harsley Pasternak works with Halle Berry and says, ‘Uphill walking is the best cardio exercise. (Do it outside or on a treadmill’s highest incline.) It’s easy on your knees while tightening your butt, thighs, and lower legs.’

According to Shakira, ‘I’ve never been able to stick to a really strict diet, but I try to stay away from simple carbohydrates and eat fruits and vegetables.’
‘For me, it’s about living and not obsessing. And really looking at diet as, ‘How am I going to have the healthiest, strongest body?’ Every day, girls are like, ‘Do I look fat?’ I’m so over that question. Stop it. And don’t obsess. When you want to eat something that’s not healthy, eat it, enjoy it, and move on! That’s what I do!,’ States E! presenter Maria Menounos.
Caroline Flack keeps fit by taking the squat challenge. This involves squatting 50 times on day one of the challenge and eventually increase it to 250 squats on day 30. It sounds tough but on the bright side, you’re allowed a rest every three days.
