Miley Cyrus took the Pilates studio by storm earlier this year, acquiring an enviable toned stomach and svelte figure after she shed 20lbs. The 19-year-old star credits Mari Winsor Pilates for her new found abs, visiting the instructor several times a week to maintain her fit figure. Now, Ms Windsor has released an at-home Pilates DVD for under $15, democratically giving critics and fans alike the chance to acquire the star’s toned physique.
The Pilates guru told FitSugar: ‘Her mother had done Winsor Pilates, and when Miley wanted to do Pilates, her mom recommended me. Her results are due to her commitment, hard work, and everyday workouts.’I believe what attracts all stars to Pilates is that it’s safe, effective, and the results are very fast when done correctly,’ she added.
Ms Winsdor’s new DVD, called Lower Body Pilates, concentrates on what she calls the ‘rear view,’ with a workout that encompasses her clients’ requests from the waist down: the hips, the glutes, the butt, the inner and outer thighs.
At-home workout: Maria Windsor’s new DVD gives fans the chance to acquire Miss Cyrus’ toned physique. She explains that with Pilates, regardless of the exercise or routine you are doing, your abs are engaged – even though you’re focusing on your hips, thighs, and glutes. Ms Windsor added: ‘Miley is a fan of all Pilates exercises, in particular those that sculpt the abs.
‘In Pilates, every exercise that you do is focused on your abs, or as we call it in Pilates, your powerhouse. The 100, the double leg stretch, and the criss-cross are all crucial to sculpting your abs.’
Besides taking daily Pilates classes, the young star and fiancee of Liam Hemsworth, proclaimed on Twitter that a gluten and lactose-free diet was the secret behind her smaller new frame.
She wrote in April: ‘Everyone should try no gluten for a week! The change in your skin, physical and mental health is amazing. You won’t go back!’
Mari Winsor’s Lower Body Pilates DVD, $15, is available from Gaiam.
Miley Cyrus’ weight loss is in the headlines recently due to the fairly significant amount of weight. She is one of many celebrities that have gained negative attention for their weight, and will surely not be the last.
Miley took to the internet claiming that an allergy to gluten and a gluten free diet caused her to slim down. HealthAvenger.com has put together more information about the Miley Cyrus diet and weight loss.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Miley Cyrus’ diet and significant weight loss has quickly become the latest Hollywood story. 19- year old, newly engaged Miley Cyrus is the latest celebrity under the public microscope because of her recent weight loss in 2012. Has she become the latest victim of the pressures of Hollywood, or has she just identified a food allergy that lead to the elimination of a food group- thus leading to the weight loss?
It was only a year ago that internet blogs were accusing the actress/singer of being a little chubbier than normal. The child star and singer has set the record straight by using twitter to inform followers that she has identified an allergy to lactose and gluten, and by eliminating foods from her diet containing those substances, she has lost quite a bit of weight.
This scenario is hardly a new one; it’s as old as film and music itself. Blame it on the fans, blame it on media, or blame it on the industry- regardless, starlets are a lot more susceptible to eating disorders, dangerous diets, and unhealthy habits to get the lbs. off. Who can really blame them though? The Miley Cyrus weight loss and diet scandal is on the heels of the Jessica Simpsonweight gain uproar. Even at 9 months pregnant, the media tore Simpson apart for putting on the lbs. – a ‘scandal’ that lead to a multi-million dollar deal with Weight Watchers.
Many people are seeking more information about the Miley Cyrus’ weight loss, To answer the calls, the Health Avenger website has posted an article and video that goes deeper in depth about it. On the site, there are posts about both the Miley Cyrus gluten free diet weight loss, and the Jessica Simpson Weight Watchers deal as well.

A late bloomer.
From Shirley Temple, a bride at 17, to now, child stars have specialized in young love and just-as-young marriage. A look at the some of the reasons why:
1. They’re Under Orders: Hard to believe this used to happen, but it did. Back when Hollywood movie studios were all-powerful, MGM decided it’d be a fine idea for employee Elizabeth Taylor, 18, to wed hotel heir Conrad Hilton Jr., 23. As it turned out, it wasn’t a fine idea—Taylor said Hilton was abusive—but the deed was done, and just in time, too, for the release of Taylor’s marriage-minded comedy, Father of the Bride.
2. They’re Giving Orders: At the start of her run as a country-pop prodigy, LeAnn Rimes was under the control of a powerful manager-producer: her father Wilbur Rimes. “I’ve never hated my dad,” Rimes recalled for ABC News in 2005. “…I just really disliked where he was in my life.” Asserting herself, Rimes sued, and savvily wrapped up old business just days before, at age 19, she started a new life with dancer Dean Sheremet, then 21.
3. They’re Rebelling: Natalie Wood was done with being the little girl from Miracle on 34th Street, and even the teenager from Rebel Without a Cause. “She feels it’s about time people quit calling her ‘the teenager’s teenager,” the Associated Press observed. Four months after that prescient 1957 profile was published, Wood became a married woman teenager, at age 19, with up-and-coming leading man Robert Wagner, then 27.
4. They’re Not Kids Anymore: When Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin wed Rachel Miner, he’d been in control of his movie-career millions for about three years (she’d been a working actress on the daytime soap Guiding Light for even longer). That he—and she—were both 17 at the time seemed a less significant number.
5. Sue ‘Em—They’re in Love: Drew Barrymore, a 19-year-old veteran of films (E.T.), rehab and comebacks, sounded head over heels when she took the plunge with bar owner Jeremy Thomas, 31, in an unplanned, 5 a.m. ceremony. “I can’t wait to walk along the beach with my husband,” she gushed to People. “Can you believe that? My husband. Wow!”
P.S.: For the record, all of these marriages ended in divorce; two of them, Taylor’s and Barrymore’s, hit the skids in less than a year. Wood and Wagner, however, did find each other again, remarrying a decade after their split, and staying together until her death.

Miley Cyrus has a pet fetish. Now that is not a bad thing, she just happens to love dogs. Thestarblogger.com (grammatically unreadable) reports that the pop star’s sweet personality is apparently on display when she is around her pets, or should I say, “the animal kingdom.” The Star Blogger is reporting that she has adopted several dogs from animal shelters and given them a home. Their names are “Happy,” “Shooter,” “Fluke,” “Roadie,” and “Tex.”
Miley also takes care of a Parakeet named “Zazu,” a rabbit named “Jack” and a horse named “Memphis.”
Now none of this would mean anything except for the fact that we have seen this kind of behavior before in another very popular pop superstar. That’s right, you guessed it: Michael Jackson.
Perhaps for her fans, this is quite acceptable and means very little except we don’t know where this behavior or pattern might lead.
I’m just saying, be observant to patterns; they have didactic value.
Miley Cyrus has received a lot of flak over the past few years for doing exactly what she’s supposed to — grow up.
Cyrus was introduced to the world as a plucky 12-year-old on Disney’s “Hannah Montana” and came of age both on television and in the public eye — constantly criticized for growing up too fast, and trying to be too sexy too soon.
The 19-year-old starlet is more than aware of the world’s expectations of her, but says that it’s hard to live up to them when she’s just trying to find herself, she revealed in a new interview.
“I feel I was so trained in my interviews to be All-American or whatever. I just got so set in the way of saying the same things I did when I was 12-years-old… I guess I kind of realized that my whole life isn’t one giant press junket. I don’t have to be smiling all the time and always have the perfect answer,” she said on a recent episode of Lifetime’s “The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet.”
For Cyrus, the natural transition from a young girl to young woman has been fought at nearly every turn — with Cyrus having to defend everything from her belief in same-sex marriage to her views on religion and her “sexier” image.
“For me, what I do [being sexy] is not the point. You’re not sitting there trying to be sexy. If people find that [I am], I take it as a compliment,” she told Cadenet, quickly adding that she knows that some people disapprove, but says it’s just who she is. “People are so scared of seeing a woman being like, ‘This is who I am and you’re not going to change it.’”
Some of Cyrus’ ultra-conservative critics have gone so far in the past as to call her “disgusting,” but she feels as though the entertainment industry has backed her into a corner as to how she’s supposed to behave.
“[It] used to be if you’re a woman you do not sing about sex, and now if that’s not what you’re singing about, if that’s not your entire image, you won’t get played [on radio and TV],” she explained. “The last season of ["Hannah Montana"] I put out “Can’t Be Tamed,” which even just the title of that for a woman to say that she can’t be tamed, and of all people in the world, my face saying I can’t be tamed, when that’s all people really wanted to do — I think that proves how sexist people still really are and judgmental. It’s the whole thing of saying ‘be sexy, but our way.”
The singer, who made headlines just last night at the Billboard Music Awards for her revealing outfit, also got candid about how too many young women value themselves based on their sexual interactions
“The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad. Because sex is actually really beautiful. It’s the only way we create, and it’s the only way the world keeps going. So it’s ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or [not] make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is,” she explained. “[Kids] have a TV, so they know what sex is. So educate them and let them know … it’s a beautiful thing, and it is magic, and it’s when you connect with somebody. And it isn’t how much you’re worth. Your worth isn’t based on that, your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.”
Though Cyrus sounds as if she knows who she is and what she believes in, she admits that the world’s expectations still have taken a toll on her.
“I’ve lost [my sense of self] a lot. There’s times you hear what you should be so much that you lose what you actually are, and that’s really hard,” she said.

Last Friday, Miley Cyrus’ soapy teen dramedy “LOL” opened to a limited release in nine states. The film, by all accounts, didn’t perform the way a film starring Cyrus, “Twilight” star Ashley Greene and one-time screen siren Demi Moore, might be expected to.
“LOL,” an English-language adaptation of a French Film of the same name, grossed only $46,500 in 105 theaters. While it’s hard to tell why the film underperformed, it seems that a lack of marketing leading up to its debut may have played a role in that. The flick follows the story of a teen, Lola (played by Cyrus), as she faces the strife of first love in a world driven by technology.
“It’s really hard to say because we’ve heard absolutely nothing about it. I think there was some buzz about this was sort of going to be a different type of breakout role for Miley. I’m not a fan of Miley, but I would actually like to see that and I think a lot of people would,” Brooke Tarnoff, a senior editor at Next Movie, told MTV News about the lackluster interest in the flick once it dropped.
With so few eyes on the release leading up to May 4, it’s hard to tell if the performance had anything to do with Cyrus. Tarnoff added, “Maybe the selling power of Miley has diminished. I think her fanbase may be less loyal than it was in the ‘Hannah Montana’ days, but it’s all kind of moot.”
The film had gotten some attention when Cyrus and Greene were spotted filming it back in 2010. But, after shooting wrapped, little else was heard about the film until a trailer dropped in mid-April, three weeks before the limited release.
“There’s obviously an audience for pretty much anything,” she continued. “And this one having a ‘Twilight’ star and Miley Cyrus, who still has some cache, it’s just [a missed opportunity].”
Regardless of the film’s box-office performance, Cyrus seemed proud of it. She took to Twitter over the weekend and brushed off the low numbers. “Thank u so much for everyone who went to see LOL,” she wrote. “It is a film I loved making and I am proud of…. That’s really all that matters to me.”

Lisa Azuelos, who wrote and directed both versions, talked about the box-office response in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
“I really thought this movie could be universal,” she said. “Usually teen movies are tender or scary or have vampires in them, but they’re never realistic. This story isn’t too dirty and not too stupid.”
Miley Cyrus has brushed off criticism of her new comedy Lol after it flopped at the U.S. box office, grossing just $46,500 (£29,063) in its opening weekend (04-06May12).
The singer/actress stars in the coming-of-age film alongside Demi Moore as her onscreen mum, but the movie, which is based on a popular French release of the same name, was only shown in 105 theatres in just eight states – excluding New York.
The Lionsgate-produced Lol failed to attract fans and the studio didn’t even release official box office figures for the picture, although it is estimated to have only made a total of $46,500, according to MovieCityNews.com.
But Cyrus insists she isn’t paying attention to the disappointing takings.
In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, “Thank u (sic) so much for everyone who went to see Lol. It is a film I loved making and I am proud of…. That’s really all that matters to me.”
Lol opened on the same day that highly-anticipated superhero blockbuster The Avengers hit U.S. cinemas – scoring box office gold with a massive $207.1 million (£129.44 million) from its first three days on release.
