Don’t you just love celebrities -- those perfect specimens who lose their baby weight in a matter of weeks and then show off their taut tummies on a beach in Ibiza? We stress ourselves out trying to emulate the same impossible feat, but I’m here to tell you that no matter how much you work out, you’re never going to look like them. You can get close, though, if you try. Start here with a few tips, and you’ll look Gwyneth Paltrow-esque in your skinny jeans in no time.

1. Splurge Daily

Paltrow's trainer and business partner, Tracy Anderson, gives all of us permission to not starve ourselves (um, thank you?). "Pick the meal that you enjoy the most, and let that be your one calorie splurge for that day,” says Anderson. She suggests cutting back on the other two meals with protein shakes or an energy bar (she happens to love Bliss Bar Superfood Energy Bars).

2. Snack Between Meals

You know how your mom used to be all, “Don't snack, or you’ll ruin your appetite!” And you were all, “But I’m so hungry!” Well, now you can tell your mom that Harley Pasternak -- trainer to Lady Gaga, Kanye West and Katy Perry and author of the Five Factor Diet -- says low-fat protein snacking is totally fine. Edamame and nonfat Greek yogurt with frozen berries are his favorite options. And in his book, he mentions salmon sashimi with plums and fresh figs with balsamic cream sauce. Yum.

3. Start Stripping

Apparently, actress Amy Adams hates the treadmill so much that she decided to go all stripper-pants on us to lose her baby weight. Yes, the woman known for her sweet and innocent roles (Enchanted; The Muppets) is down with pole dancing. And according to my insider sources (ahem, tabloids), Emma Watson, Cindy Crawford and Kate Hudson also named pole dancing as an integral part of their workouts. (Hudson reportedly even installed a pole in her bathroom. Dancing by the toilet sounds odd, but whatever works.)
