Reiki – One of the things that helped Christina lose weight
Christina Aguilera reportedly credits Reiki, an ancient Asian practice that is said to heal the body and mind therefore hinting that there is more than just gym and dieting to be physically fit. Conducted by practitioners, Reiki is aimed at increasing the body energy which in turn helps one relax and be less stressed out. Doing Yoga and running may also substitute Reiki in this context but will also support the fact that relieving stress is vital for a healthy living. The theory suggests that the practice is able to transfer one’s spiritual energy to the rest of your body and this able to be achieved as the practitioner moves her hands all over the client’s body without any contact whatsoever and its like they are soothing your stress.
Diet always plays a significant weight loss role
Apart from limiting her alcohol consumption, Christina avoided unhealthy foods like chocolate, chips, pancakes and conned beef among others. For breakfast she goes with blueberries, half an avocado and turkey bacon which is a combination of healthy fats and proteins. For a snack she has is almond butter and chicken breast over a veggie-filled salad for lunch. She loves shrimp cocktail as a healthy snack and for dinner she loves chicken or fish curry and splurges with a glass of wine.

After her pregnancy, she mentioned that breast-feeding also helped her loose calories and shed her baby weight, as well as that also keeping away from whites such as white rice, floor and sugar helped checking her weight.
