Ballerinas don’t just have tight buns on their heads!
In my last two posts, I’ve described just how hard dancers work for their bodies. I’m not one of these trainers who claim to have the magic formula known as the diet and exercise plan that will give you the perfect body in only twenty minutes a day! It takes time, commitment, and desire.
There is no replacement for the repetition, genetic predisposition, and physical dedication that ballerinas have. However, we can transform our bodies by applying these principles to our own training. Even though I won’t promise you that by doing these exercises you’ll look like Sylvie Guillem does in this pic, I can promise you that you’ll hold your head higher and feel stronger in your own daily routine.

Veggie love is in da house!
I will admit that I am already a dairy avoiding pescatarian, but The Bitch takes it all the way the max. No meat, no seafood, no dairy. Also, just like doing laundry, the diet doesn’t want whites (sugar,flour,rice) anywhere near your colors (veggies and fruits)!
The results? Lots of extra energy and weight loss to boot! Find out more about what I’m eating and how it’s working on the Skinny Bitch Diet!
Recently I wrote about a ballerina’s life , recalling the over-arching passion and drive that guides a dancer through her life.
Today, I set out to demystify dancers even further. I want you to realize that, yes, we are driven by passion, but just like any other job, there are moments every day that make us question “why do I do this?”

Ahh, vacation! A little break from reality and, despite my best efforts, from dieting as well.
I did my best to stick to eating clean, practicing portion control, and to keeping up at the gym. For the most part, it worked. I didn’t gain any weight, but I didn’t lose any either.
It’s time to detox, and that’s going to be a real ‘bitch”. A Skinny Bitch that is!
Despite any negative connotations, this diet couldn’t be further from it’s moniker! Read on to find out the skinny on The Skinny Bitch Diet!
I can’t believe another two weeks of dieting are over!

Who would you rather look like?
Tori Spelling or Jessica Biel ? Paris Hilton or Gwyneth Paltrow? Giuliana Rancic or Jennifer Aniston?
While all of these women are beautiful and thin, there’s a big difference between skin-and-bones and long-and lean. Ladies, skinny does not equal healthy!
What determines whether you are skinny-fat or skinny-fit is your body composition.
Body composition refers to the amount of lean tissues compared to fatty tissues in the body. A healthy percent of body fat at any age is between 12% and 26%. We think poor Tori is hanging on by a string to the low end of that range. She may be skinny, but it’s scary not sexy!
