How Bride-to-Be Hilary Duff is Stepping Up Her Pre-Wedding Workouts

Before getting hitched to NHL player Mike Comrie, bride-to-be Hilary Duff is leaning on trainer-to-the-stars Harley Pasternak to help get her in top wedding form. With other svelte A-listers like newlywed Megan Fox and soon-to-be married Jennifer Hudson on his client list, the author of The 5-Factor World Diet clearly knows what it takes to get women in gown-ready shape. “The key is to have amazing shoulders, amazing arms, posture is really important,” Pasternak tells PEOPLE. “But it’s also important to have a really tight midsection, because the way a wedding dress hugs your midsection, you really want it lean and tight.” So how is he upping the ante on Hilary’s usual gym regimen to get her ready for the big day? “Instead of a five-minute cardio warm-up and a five-minute cardio cool-down, maybe we extend those cardio phases to 15 minutes before and after our workout,” says Pasternak. And Hilary’s pre-wedding routine isn’t just about fitness—diet is also key. Each fuel-charged day consists of five meals: a breakfast burrito, mid-morning snack (berry smoothie), lunch (chopped salad), afternoon snack (apple cinnamon oatmeal cookie) and dinner (“she loves Japanese food”). We all know keeping fit is de rigueur in Hollywood, so how is the former tween queen responding to the stringent workouts? “I think she vocally disliked them all!” says Pasternak. But no hard work goes unnoticed. “She looks toned and tight… I’m really proud of her, she looks fantastic.” –Hana Choi; reporting by Thailan Pham

I thought the article was positive. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look your best on your wedding day! The article mentioned nothing about losing weight. It mentioned the importance of great shoulders/posture and a tight mid-section. Nothing is more important than staying in shape!

Hilary already was tiny and thin. It makes me sad to think she needed to be thinner.

OMG, I love reading the comments on these, people get all butt hurt about people they have never met and dont know. Yeah everyone wants to look good on there wedding day, but why not be happy with who you are and what you look like. It’s a simple solution people dont seem to ever consider obviously the dude she is marrying loves her for the person she is before the wedding crazed workouts.

@jackieb, you’re a real b*tch, you know that? If you think she’s fat, then I’d hate to see your idea of an ideal weight. It would probably be an anorexic chick who’s all skin and bones.
