Jennie Garth – Eat every 3 hours.
“I eat a lot now. I’m always hungry. And when you’re rehearsing for six hours, sometimes you forget to eat. I snack on a lot of energy bars while we’re working, or a banana just to keep me going, and then I’ll eat a giant sandwich. I’m just burning through it. Now I can eat and not worry about it. ” (Source: Getty)
Kirstie Alley – Get some momentum, and roll with it.
“As long as I kept changing and changing and changing, I really didn’t care. It was like, keep whittling, whittling, whittling. And the other thing that’s really more significant to me – I mean, I love the whittling, I like being skinny – I’m really strong and really agile, and it gave me a new life.” (Source: Getty)
Kelly Osbourne – DON’T be afraid to snack before bed!
“I’ve completely changed the way I eat since doing Dancing With the Stars. A trick I’ve learned is to eat just a little bit of something that has no carbs and no sugar in it before you go to sleep because it keeps your metabolism going. They say you should never eat before you go to bed, but I’ve found just having a tiny little snack — like half an apple or something like that — before you go to sleep really helps.” (Source: Getty)
Julianne Hough – Start early in the day. And don’t expect one workout to do it all.
“There are certain areas of the body that dancing won’t tone, so I still stretch and do crunches, lunges, and arm moves just about every day. I prefer to work out early because it gives me an energy boost for the rest of the day. With free weights I can do little twists and turns and almost choreograph my workouts. That’s more fun for me, and the time goes by faster.” (Source: FitnessQuotes)
Melissa Rycroft – Make healthy alternatives of the meals that may not be so good for you.

Melissa Rycroft, who was in excellent shape all through Dancing, later shared her tips for her wedding day with Examiner:
- Load up on the fruits and vegetables
- Allow yourself to cheat and give in to cravings in moderation
- Stick to lean meats and eat lean protein at every meal
- Make healthy alternatives to some of your favorite dishes that may not be so healty for you
- Eat too much sugar
- Rely on salt for taste
- Turn to weight-loss extremes
- Binge at night
It seems getting in shape with Dancing with the Stars comes back to common sense and repeated daily disciplines: Start early, workout daily, eat small meals (less than 300-400 calories) every 3 hours, and don’t be afraid to eat something small before bed if you are craving it (and have good self-control)!
