Yep, you read right. Formerly waify socialite Paris Hilton been sporting a fuller figure in recent weeks – even showing off a more muscular frame in a Brazilian fashion show earlier this month — and now we know why. As it turns out, Paris has been bitten by the bodybuilding bug thanks to her fitness fanatic boyfriend Cy Waits.
“Paris has always preferred to stick to dieting all the time to maintain her figure, but since she’s been dating Cy, she’s got the bug. It’s a massive turnaround and now she’s working out so much that she’s often been seen on the treadmill drinking a milkshake,” a friend of the couple told Britain’s Daily Star last week.
Apparently Paris’ new daily routine includes weightlifting, bench presses and beach runs – plus she’s allowed to indulge in some fast food afterwards. The socialite is now on a strict muscle-building diet to keep her energy levels up.
“Paris has always loved junk food, but before she started working out to this extent, she had to deny her cravings. Now she feels she can indulge once in a while, as she’s burning so many calories,” added the source. “She wants to change her image and get properly healthy. At first she was unsure and it took some getting used to, but now Paris loves her new body. And Cy loves it too – he’s always talking about how hot and gorgeous she is.”
