Madonna’s former Personal Trainer, Tracy Anderson also came up with a workout DVD back then. She was known for the strict low-calorie, low-fat and low-carbohydrates diet that she imposes in conjunction to the sets of workouts that she had designed and worked on for ten years.

Personal Trainer, Nicole Winhoffer lends her perspective on food and cravings. In an interview with Shape magazine, the young personal trainer reveals how she listens to her body’s cravings for food on what it needs.
