Now add up your answers and see which celebrity type you're most like.
Mostly A’s - You are Britney Spears
You may be in danger of becoming a yo-yo dieter like Britney. If you find you are constantly battling the flab take a look at what you’re eating - or not eating - and try hard to swap fried and fatty foods and snacks for healthier salads, lean meats and plenty of veg. Make sure not to starve yourself though or you will just binge later.
Mostly B’s - You are Kate Winslet
You seem in control of your diet and have a healthy body image, just like Kate Winslet. Kate simply counts calories when she wants to lose weight and never ever attempts a strict diet. She eats healthily and has a body she is proud of – beautifully curvy. Don’t change a thing if you are most like Kate – you’re a lucky girl!
Mostly C’s - You are Madonna
Your gym membership must be your most prized possession! Madge is no flake when it comes to working out, but her diet lacks variety. Unless you are happy to eat like a rabbit and have a nutritionist on hand, be careful; you may end up becoming orthorexic – that is to say you'll develop a phobic of any food not considered healthy. Try different foods and treat yourself once in a while!
Mostly D’s - You are Victoria Beckham
If you think Victoria’s style of dieting is going to be good for you, get some help immediately. Even she admits to becoming ‘obsessed’ by her pre-pregnancy weight. Remember, Posh has access to the best dieticians and nutritionists around, don’t fool yourself into thinking you can copy her without consequence. Start eating small healthy meals five times a day.
