As Britney Spears prepares to hit the road again next week for her second concert tour of North America in less than nine months, the pop superstar Ã¢â¬â and mother of two young sonsÃ¢â¬â has managed to get her body looking the best it has since the days of Ã¢â¬ÅOoops!Ã¢â¬Â¦ I Did It AgainÃ¢â¬Â and Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m a Slave 4 U.Ã¢â¬Â And Brit herself is thrilled with her own transformation.
A source tells OK! that Britney Ã¢â¬â who flaunted her toned physique in a barely there white Eres bikini for an Aug. 6 photo shoot in L.A. Ã¢â¬â is thrilled with her new figure.
Ã¢â¬ÅBritney used to hate her body when she looked in the mirror after having the boys,Ã¢â¬Â a longtime pal of the singer tells OK!. Ã¢â¬ÅBut last week she sent pictures home to [her mom] Lynne and wrote, Ã¢â¬ËLook how good I look!Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬Â
Melrose Place actor Ethan Erickson, who appears in BritneyÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬ÅRadarÃ¢â¬Â music video and also worked on a CandieÃ¢â¬â¢s shoot with the performer, says she looked Ã¢â¬ÅdynamiteÃ¢â¬Â when they shot the companyÃ¢â¬â¢s campaign several months ago. Of course, heÃ¢â¬â¢s even more impressed by her current bikini body. Ã¢â¬ÅI think the whole thing just screams, Ã¢â¬ËIÃ¢â¬â¢m back,Ã¢â¬â¢ Ã¢â¬Â Ethan tells OK!.
The sexy mom of Sean, 3, and Jayden, 2, can credit her slamming new body in part to the Sunfare diet, a gourmet meal delivery company. Sunfare, which counts stars such as Eva Longoria Parker, Marcia cross and Khloe Kardashian among its fans, incorporates a balanced, low-carb approach of three big meals and two snacks per day, all documented through the delivery system.
Ã¢â¬ÅWhen Britney is on Sunfare, she consumes approximately 1,100 to 1,200 calories per day,Ã¢â¬Â a source reveals to OK!.
The other major factor behind BritÃ¢â¬â¢s renewed physique is good old-fashioned hard work in the dance studio and on stage.
Ã¢â¬ÅHer outlet is dance,Ã¢â¬Â the longtime friend says. Ã¢â¬ÅSheÃ¢â¬â¢s still dancing at least two hours a day and sometimes sheÃ¢â¬â¢ll rehearse up to eight hours a day.Ã¢â¬Â
Still, says another insider, Ã¢â¬ÅIt didnÃ¢â¬â¢t come easy. It was a long, hard road. Britney dedicated herself in such a focused way. We are all so proud of her, not just for her physical achievements but also for her mental and emotional ones.Ã¢â¬Â
