Now that Thanksgiving and all those leftovers from the big feast are finally gone, it’s time to start on that dreaded holiday diet!

Oh, who are we kidding? Holidays are for enjoying cider, fruitcakes and stupid amounts of food.

So unless modeling is your profession or you’re just a really healthy person, here’s how celebs stay fit year-round if you're looking to shave off some of those Thanksgiving pounds.

Kim Kardashian on how she lost the baby weight: “I just did that diet that i did a long time ago with my dad when I was in college - the Atkins diet. It works for me so I just wanted to be healthy and try something that I knew would work."

How Adam Levine’s fiancée Behati Prinsloo stays slim: “I do a lot of Pilates and I love yoga. Doing yoga outside or going for a run on the beach.”

Why Victoria’s Secret Model Doutzen Kroes loves ballet: “I kind of have to be careful to not get too muscular so I do Ballet Beautiful now. It's about a little definition and you get [similar results] you get with Pilates so it's great for your core and legs to make them long and lean.”

Kerry Washington’s healthy lifestyle tips: “I do a lot of Pilates and I try to get good sleep and eat local organic fresh foods.” 

Jennifer Hudson explains her massive slim down: “People know I've been on this fitness journey for the past two years of my life. Water and staying hydrated has been a really huge thing for me.”

Camila Alves explains why cheat days are important: “At the end of the day its not about how much you’re exercising if you don’t have the right diet. So my biggest thing is just really having a balanced diet and have one day off where you can cheat and eat whatever you want.”

Alessandra Ambrosio’s love of spin classes: “When I have time I hit the gym and for cardio I do a lot of spinning classes. SoulCycle classes are my go-to because they put the music  on really loud, they turn the lights off, you're in your little world and you're sweating a lot.”

Karlie Kloss thanks her active lifestyle for her hot body: “What’s natural for me is being active. I'm constantly active. I like to swim, I like to dance, I like to bike ride. Since I was little I started to do ballet very intensely so I’m always very active.”
