Former Girl Next Door Holly Madison recently stripped down for Star magazine and revealed all of her bikini secrets, and RadarOnline.com has the interview and exclusive photos from her revealing shoot.
When Holly moved from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, she was riding high on her bangin’ post-Dancing with the Stars body. But her favorite eats – Italian food and gourmet candy – quickly caught up with her, despite long rehearsals for her Peepshow revue, and she gained some weight back. Now 10 lbs lighter though, Holly shared her weigh-loss journey with Star.
Star: How did you lose weight?
Holly: Recently, I’ve really gotten my eating habits back on track.
Star: What’s your daily eating plan?
Holly: A protein bar for breakfast, fruit as a snack and a healthy chicken salad for lunch. Then I will get a grilled chicken breast for dinner, with avocado and vegetables on the side. I love adding BBQ sauce too.
Star: Do you have any vices?
Holly: I love chicken fingers, I love french fries. I love desserts. I’m not just into dessert of just into savory food. I love it all. I’m a pig. I love food. So it takes a lot of discipline to eat healthy.
Star: What do you do to stay in shape?
Holly: I have a treadmill in my house, which is great because even if I jump on it for a little bit, it makes me feel better. I love yoga and Pilates too. I have a private Pilates instructor I go to once a week.
Star: Do you have a quick beauty fix you can do as you slip into your bikini?
Holly: Using bronzer, giving yourself a bit of color is so amazing. It helps to camouflage flaws. Also, a good [beach] cover-up is important. You need to put something on.
Star: Is there anything you would change about your body?
Holly: If I could have a Barbie body, which has no cellulite, I totally would. I would like to have a flatter stomach, but that won’t happen either. That is never going to happen. No matter how much weight I lose, my stomach, below the belly button, always pooches out.
