Companies are smart: they know that by using celebrities in their advertisements, they’ll be more likely to sell their products…which, unfortunately, is why you tend to see singers, reality stars, actors, and musicians selling everything from “skinny teas” to weight loss pills.
Fortunately, there are tons of famous people out there who actually have great health and fitness tips to share with their fans.
We’ve Got 5 Suggestions Right Here:
1. Jillian Michaels
As a famous celebrity trainer, Jillian has helped thousands of people lose weight and keep it off. One of her most effective and sustainable guidelines? The concept of “80/20“: make 80% of your food choices lean, healthy and nutritious, and allow yourself to enjoy those special treats up to 20% of the time.
2. Channing Tatum
Known for his amazing aesthetics and athletics, Channing follows his trainer’s advice that includes drinking hot water and lemon first thing in the morning (for a liver-detoxifying dose of Vitamin C), clean food, and functional exercise including bike rides, push ups, pull ups, dips, squats, and lunges.

So, no matter who you look up to, just make sure that this celeb sets a good example of what it means to be healthy and happy.
