Andrea Berg on “home game” diet and self-proclaimed problem areas
Updated On: 26th July 2018
Andrea Berg also convinced with her sexy look at her 13th “home game”. Now she revealed that she had been on a diet for the shows this year as well and which zones she did not want to emphasize with her outfits.
Also Andrea Berg’s 13th “home game” last weekend was a great success. The Schlager-Queen celebrated a huge party on two concert evenings with a total of more than 30,000 fans. The 52-year-old beamed as ever, whirling about three hours each across the stage and bribed as usual optically. In an interview with RTL, the singer now revealed that she had again set herself on a diet for the “home game” shows.
Andrea Berg has lost seven kilos before the “home game”. It is not the first time that Andrea Berg lost a lot of weight in a short time. In 2013 she even lost 13 kilos. At the same time she also told RTL about her weight loss strategy: “discipline, jogging, training on the stepper and FdH” , ie “lining the half”.
Andrea Berg’s self-proclaimed problem area
Nevertheless, the 52-year-old now said to RTL : “I am always a bit wide in the hip”, and further revealed:”I have lost seven pounds, but these bones, that will eventually come and you will not get away.” They chose their glitter dresses so that the cuts and silhouettes do not emphasize their self-proclaimed problem areas. Nice that Schlager superstars have to deal with quite normal problems. Incidentally, when it comes tostyling, Andrea Berg also receives support from daughter-in-law Vanessa Mai:”Vanessa looked at the drawings and always had a good look,”says Andrea Berg, planning her stage outfits.
