Does anyone know how much or what Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis ate to lose weight for Black swan? 

They exercised for about 5 hours a day, I know. It just amaze me they didn't get bulky but petite and subtle. 

Similiar body types, tips, anyone with such body? 

HELP, I NEED TO LOOK LIKE THAT!

Swimming is good. Also raw vegan or vegetarian. Just skip meat in general. Unless you need a major protein then go pescatarian.

 I read somewhere that they stuck to 1200 cals a day. so with the 5hr workouts (swimming, ballet training etc) the wouldn't be bulky at all. They went from like 120ish to 90-95.

  also i'm so obsessed with that movie. they looked otherworldly.

You definitely won't get bulky for ballet (hence why all ballerinas have long, lean muscle)--swimming is the same.

And I disagree about meat. Meat is healthy and helps keep you tame cravings, etc, and will help you stay on track.

I don't know why women always worry about getting bulky, it's very difficult to get bulky as a woman.

Anyways, eat more fruit and vegetables. If you plan to exercise a lot to look like a ballerina you should go for a higher carb and protein intake, if you don't then fat and protein is more important. There is a lot of people who say you shouldn't eat that much carbs, but carbs are good for energy.

The reason so many dancers end up with that long, lean appearance has a lot to do with how ballet works your muscles. Unlike more targeted workouts like weight training or running, ballet works all along the muscle, not just here or there in bunchy masses. Having more muscle ups your metabolism, which also contributes to them staying small. Food-wise, Natalie did the equivalent of a crash diet, which any professional ballerina will tell you would NOT work in the real world. To survive their hours upon hours of training, dancers actually eat a ton. Extreme dieting or having an eating disorder can actually mean the end of your work as a dancer if your company finds out-- just like in modeling, a lot of companies have cracked down on the association between their art and eating disorders.

 

Anyway, if you really admire the dancer body, why not get into dance yourself? It's never too late :) I only just got back into dance a couple weeks ago after taking years off getting fat and I've already lost about 15 pounds. Granted, I'm dancing about 10 hours a week, restricting calories on non-dance days, and also doing yoga and cardio when I feel I didn't work enough, but it's really rewarding :)

Actually yoga and pilates are great alternative to achieving that dancer body cos those workouts lengthen your spine and work your inner lean muscles (core) rather than your outer muscles (like those gym and strength exercises). There are lots of ballet dancers in the pilates class that I attend! :-)

Yoga and pilates are great as well, of course :) As I mentioned, I'm doing yoga in addition to my dance classes. It's always a good idea to cross train. The only problem I could possibly see with yoga and pilates is the relative lack in cardio.

From experience, any dancing sport (ballet and figure skating mainly) will not make you bulky. I was very thin and petite even with baby fat from being younger.
