Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan is looking pretty amazing right now. She puts it all down to the latest carb-cycling trend, which she features in her new and updated Body Bible 2016. Here's how to get fit just like her...

Even since her early days on the MTV show, Holly's been open about the struggles she's had with her weight.

And looking at her now, it's hard to believe she was ever the victim of cruel online trolls who ridiculed her for weighing 13st.

But the 23-year-old, who is 5ft 3in, has turned these negative comments into positive action – losing 3st, and going from a size 16 to a size 8 since Geordie Shore's first series in 2011.

Like most of us, Holly's admitted that she'll always have to work hard to maintain a banging bod. In February, she was pictured on Australia's Bondi Beach looking slightly curvier.

But earlier this month, she shared a stunning pic of herself posing and showing off her incredible toned tummy in a black bikini. The post on her Facebook page proved that she is now truly body-confident.

Her new, improved 2016 edition of Holly Hagan's Body Bible, which involves a 12- week carb-cycling regime and exercise plan, is what she credits for her amazing figure.

So how exactly does it work? We give you the lowdown on how to be hot like Holly...

TREATS

We're all human, and we all get tempted from time to time. Plus, if you've worked hard all week you deserve a reward.

"Dieting doesn't mean you have to punish yourself. If you've stuck to your diet and exercise regime 90 per cent of the time, the occasional snack or over-indulgent meal is OK," Holly says.

"For me, I spend all week being good with my diet and exercise, so on a Sunday I allow myself my mum's amazing roast dinner guilt-free! Looking forward to this every Sunday helps motivate me all week."

ESSENTIAL EXTRAS

Holly says these also help her lose weight:

FISH OIL Helps decrease body fat and inflammation, and it's good for the heart, too!

GREEN TEA It burns fat and gives your immune system a boost. You can drink it whenever you like.

MULTIVITAMINS If there are any gaps in your nutrition, this will plug them. Take them in tablet form before a meal.

WATER Dehydration can feel like hunger, so drink at least 1.6 litres a day.
