Before celebrities even consider walking down the red carpet to razzle-dazzle the cameras, they go above and beyond to get in shape. As was once quoted in a famous movie, “You don’t alter the gown to fit you, you alter yourself to fit the gown.”

That said, it’s no surprise that even the most stunning starlets like Halle Berry, Megan Fox and Rihanna employ the likes of celebrity personal trainer Harley Pasternak to get in shape. Also a nutrition expert, Pasternak dishes out the deets on his recommended diet and exercise plan to be a showstopper at a big event; and it doesn’t get bigger than the Oscars.

PS: As you’re reading this, Natalie Portman is perhaps chomping on a green salad with grilled salmon and avocado.

One way to stop over eating is with water. He tells stylecaster.com, “A lot of times, people mistake hunger for thirst, I suggest you always keep a bottle of water at hand. I personally like SmartWater; it’s vapor-distilled and has added electrolytes for taste”.
