Celebs and Diets.

Life & Style has 'Celebrity Diet secrets' this week in the tabloids, but ABC has the most remarkable weight loss story about a woman who loses a whopping 222 pounds and then competes in a triathlon.

Aimee Smith of Janesville, Wis says to ABC News, "“My knees hurt, my back hurt. I had high blood pressure. I was pre-diabetic. I was going down a bad path,” she says. “I’m sure carrying around 400 pounds wasn’t doing my health any favors.”

She weighed 427 pounds before getting gastric bypass surgery and changing the way she eats and competed in the triathalon at 205 pounds.

“You’ve got to change your relationship with food. Start thinking of it as fuel rather than a friend you can rush to whenever you’re having an emotional problem,” she says.

Slimdown secrets of the stars?

Life & Style has celebrity dieting tips on their cover tis week and promises to reveal "workout tricks and the keys to maintaining their sizzling sizes."

The report teases:

From hot Hollywood moms to A-listers with past weight struggles, stars open up in this week’s issue. “I don’t like ‘diet foods’ — they make you miserable and never fill you up," Kelly Osbourne tells Life & Style. The star, who’s lost more than 69 pounds, explains, “I had to find things I enjoyed eating; otherwise, I would never have stuck with it.”

Mom of two Jessica Alba admits that she’s so busy she has to make the most of her workouts. Her slimdown secret? She loves indoor cycling, which allows her to burn more than 500 calories per class.

As for Hilary Duff, who gave birth to son Luca in March 2012, she admits that she wasn’t seeing her weight-loss results fast enough. A friend of Hilary’s tells Life & Style that the 25-year-old has meals delivered via the Cibo Verde service: “For $49 a day, she gets three low-cal meals and two snacks, created by chefs.”
