Physical appearance is very important for celebrities, as it can directly affect the path of their career. A blemished face or plump figure can easily cost any actor or actress projects where he or she could have been otherwise cast.
Luckily, options for weight loss are now available, and some are even affordable. There are diet pills that promise results in as little as seven days, a surgery that commits to getting rid of excess body fat and the sagging skin post-weight loss, and diet meal plans that promote organic food over its oily, salty or MSG-filled alternatives. But some people still prefer the traditional way of diet and exercise because, for them, these investments will reap a healthy future.

American Idol 2002 winner Kelly Clarkson earned a record deal with RCA Records and gained instant popularity because of her incredible voice and powerful performance.

The American actress, who is a Primetime Emmy and Golden Globe Awards nominee for her role as Mahalia Sanchez in The John Larroquette Show, has yet to confirm or deny this news.
But her sunny disposition proves that she is satisfied with the changes and happy with how she looks now regardless of how she achieved them. For us, that’s what truly matters. What’s perhaps more important is whether or not Liz Torres has applied for insurance before she pursued the surgery, in case something might go wrong. Her weight loss is truly remarkable as she is almost unrecognizable. She should maintain her weight and prevent the onset of another obesity because it will be perilous to undergo another surgery especially at her age and her disposition.

The diet plan cost her roughly $100 per week, and though she almost had to take money loans to sustain it, the result was astounding as the Hairspray lead star lost 100 pounds by the end of her Atkins program.
However, when her relationship with Christian Evans went sour, Lake started gaining weight again. Sticking to a workout schedule made her shed off the extra fats and helped her maintain a healthy weight. Keeping what she had started should be maintained at all cost because she already put a lot of money into it. She should prevent taking money loans again.
DAVID BARNER – FITNESS AND DIET
David Barner wasn’t always as drool-worthy as he is today. A confessed food lover, Barner used to have a bad habit of munching unhealthy food and snacks, which started during his teenage years. This caused him to gain excess weight that eventually led to illnesses, including hypertension and sleep apnea. Heeding his doctor’s advice, David followed a controlled diet program with low carb and high fiber content. He also pursued a strict fitness routine, which helped him lose unwanted pounds.
Surely, even his insurance provider was happy with his transformation from chubby to hunky, just like we are. He would not want to be as unhealthy as before, so he religiously followed a strict fitness program and drank green tea and a low carb diet.

This included a strict diet plan and avoiding alcoholic drinks, soda, and juices.
With an improved weight, Kathleen Turner won back her self-confidence and regained her career, giving her leverage for better money management. Indulging in including alcoholic drinks, soda, and juices in your diet is always a bad investment, as spending money on these treats are expensive while increasing your weight simultaneously. Kathleen Turner was determined never to go back to being overtly overweight.

In 2004, the twins formed the Veronicas, an Australian pop duo, and recorded songs such as “Hook Me Up” “On Your Side”.
But, despite their popularity and high credit score, Jess and Lisa were not exactly happy about their body image as they felt that they were overweight, ignoring other people’s assurances that they were, in fact, in good shape. The twins went on with their decision to rigorously shed off some weight until they eventually achieved the stick-thin figure they desired. Not at the expense of their health, we hope. If that may be the case, at least they should bear in mind to have a good investment plan for their early retirement.

Her weight problems started after giving birth to her first baby. Snooki didn’t waste time and immediately acted on losing weight.

She decided to take the natural route by committing to a regular fitness regimen, which included five days in the gym every week, combined with a controlled diet. The results are just impressive. A wise decision for Snooki to shy away from any invasive surgery to lose weight. We hope, however, that she maintains her tenacity in the future as she is right now.
SAM SMITH – FITNESS AND DIET
British singer Sam Smith is considered one of the best performers of his generation. But, as his popularity and money started swelling, the singer’s body frame was strikingly getting thinner. Sam was quick to address his fans’ concerns and assured them that he is in the pink of health. He credits losing 14 pounds in two weeks to regular exercise and a healthy diet.
The explanation brought a sigh of relief to his fans and insurance companies as well, but as expected, skeptics still think that he may have done some surgery to be able to lose so much weight in such a short period. There are also dangers in losing weight abruptly. Sometimes, the body cannot handle the drastic change, provoking complications that could be fatal. He should consider discussing health insurance with his insurance company so as not to fall prey to various money loans.

Being healthy again, Dr. Dre has managed to be active in his career. We would like to see him maintain his weight and avoid any reason that could damage his health. Also, Dre must focus on investment planning already because he is not getting any younger.

Eventually, the award-winning actor decided to lose some weight for his health by sticking to a balanced diet of high protein and low carb content. The problem, however, is that he must also maintain a particular shape for his character in the show.
As such, Bradley sees to it that his transformation would be gradual and still aligned with the plot. Fortunately, he was able to do this successfully. Moreover, he would not need money loans for expensive and dangerous surgeries just to maintain a healthy weight. Indeed, Bradley has been making wakes since the end of the show’s run with numerous projects such as Patient Zero and Borgia.
RIKISHI – FITNESS AND DIET
Solofa Fatu Jr., also known as Rikishi, became famous as a WWE wrestler when he adopted the nickname “Stinkface”, which was attributed to his trademark move of sitting on the face of his opponents after successfully bringing them down on the floor. Weighing a hefty 425 pounds, his heavy body frame would undoubtedly weaken any competitor. But, in 2000, Rikishi badly hurt Steve Austin backstage during a wrestling match. To save himself from being presented to an attorney for trial, the incident made him leave his wrestling career.
During his absence from the ring, the wrestler adopted a healthy diet and fitness program and lost 125 pounds. After two years, Rikishi was able to return to WWE through The Rock’s help. He might need a Financial Advisor now to keep track of his finances. It would not be easy if he will hit rock bottom if he will neglect his health again.

She was very honest about her transformation over the years. She even gets a photograph of herself before and after her diet and exercise regimen. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that many admirers were delighted to see her new fit body and positive attitude, although we believe that her list of popular hits like “Friend of Mine”, “As We Lay”, “Mirror Mirror”, and “Tired” can use some updating too. With her new album hitting the charts, she will probably need to employ a Financial Advisor to manage her income.

But instead of feeling discouraged, Kody Brown’s wife, or one of his four wives to be more precise, took the negative comments as a challenge to improve herself. Janelle started a fitness program that included regular exercise and a properly balanced diet and created a blog where she kept her fans informed and updated on her weight loss development.
To document her journey, Janelle authored a book titled “Watch Me Disappear”, which became a bestseller and placed her as one of the top authors in The New York Times. She should discuss with her insurance company her option for retirement, as her net worth will undoubtedly soar if the book will sell across the world. Indeed, her laid-back approach to life has brought her to the success she is enjoying now.
