Michelle Monaghan: “Eggs or oatmeal for breakfast, soup or salad for lunch, and fish with veggies for dinner”

shapenobooty-890x1024-1 - Michelle Monaghan: "Eggs or oatmeal for breakfast, soup or salad for lunch, and fish with veggies for dinner"

On why she loves her body:

“I love my shape because I know what it’s capable of—running 13 miles, having two children, and learning to surf. I love my body so much; it’s profoundly amazing. I have enormous gratitude for it.”

On the food she doesn’t like and her daily meal plan:

“I have never liked fruit. To make up for it, I have a green juice every morning, which is totally devoid of fruit but has tons of vitamins from vegetables. A typical day of eating for me is eggs or oatmeal for breakfast, soup or salad for lunch, and fish or meat and lots of veggies for dinner.”

On her biggest craving:

“I don’t have a sweet tooth; I have a savory tooth. There are six or seven cheese in my fridge at all times. My idea of snacking is putting cheeses on a platter with prosciutto and crackers and sitting in front of it and stuffing my face.”

On how she sets an example of positive body image for her daughter:

“When I’m not shooting, I aim to work out at least three times a week … On shoot days, I start at about five in the morning and don’t get home until seven at night, so it’s hard to find time for exercise. I throw myself a bone and don’t get too worried about it. I know that when I have time again, I can kick it up a notch. I also need to be an example for my daughter. That means I can’t run around worried about what I look like. We’re active together as a family—the kids go hiking and biking with us. But I don’t obsess about what I eat.”

On why she needs exercise in her life:

“I get crabby when I don’t work out. Just ask my husband! [Laughs.] I really depend on exercising to relieve stress. Last week, I was overwhelmed and I thought, I need to go for a run or a hike to clear my head. I had a to-do list that was a mile long, and I didn’t know what to tackle first. When I run, it helps put everything into place. Years ago, when I started working out, it was about getting my body in shape. But now the mental benefits outweigh the physical ones. That’s why I love going for a hike in the morning. There’s something about climbing a mountain that’s symbolic—you set your intention and what you want to focus on. I think about what I have to do today or what I have to accomplish this week. It allows me that space where there’s no one else around.”

On running:

“I run a half marathon every year with Maria, my best friend from my hometown in Iowa. I’ve known her since I was a kid. We usually do races in different cities, so we’ll make a weekend out of it. It’s great because there are days when I have to do an eight-mile run, and I’ll get a text from Maria saying, ‘I did eight miles! Did you do yours?’ Training with her helps motivate and encourage me.”

Demi Lovato Works Out 4 Hours Every Day

FFN_vcv_52108527 - Demi Lovato Works Out 4 Hours Every Day

The full story from People:

Lovato has been working out religiously at L.A.’s Unbreakable Performance Center (where Nick and Joe Jonas also work out) for the past nine months, and has called the gym her “oasis” on Instagram.

“This is her safe haven,” Unbreakable’s founder Jay Glazer tells PEOPLE. “Demi will be here for four hours a day. It’s her one place where she doesn’t have to be a pop star. She’s talked a lot about her addictions, and this has become her healthy addiction. She lights up when she comes in here.”

And while Lovato wanted to lean up, her main focus was learning how to fight.

“She’s more coachable than most of our fighters,” says Glazer. “She doesn’t put ego in, she does it right — and she is vicious!”

Lovato will start her session with an hour-and-a-half of mixed martial arts.

“Depending on the day of the week, we’ll do boxing, Muay Thai, ground fighting and/or Brazilian jujitsu,” says Glazer. “Then she’ll do some sort of recovery, and then she’ll go do her performance workout.”

Lovato’s performance workout focuses on full-body toning, so she does exercises with high reps and low weights, with little rest in between.

“It’s very intense,” says Glazer. “It’s three different exercises three times through with no rest. She’ll do a push, a pull and lower body move, so let’s say a chest push, a pull for your back, and then some sort of squat, but something low-impact that won’t bulk her. At the end we’ll do abs.”

Following her workout, Lovato does 30 minutes of recovery including I.V. therapy twice a week, cryotherapy two or three times a week, Phoenix Thera-Lase medical laser therapy each day that penetrates six inches into the body to encourage healing and reduce swelling and inflammation, and massaging recovery sleeves every day.

“She goes through the plan perfectly,” says Glazer. “She’s never been late, she shows up, she helps everybody. She’s incredible.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Gets Active and Talks Being Fit

On going to the gym and enjoying the process:

‘Going to the gym is my time, I don’t want to be distracted and don’t want to be goofing around. It’s a time when I feel I need to be focused on myself because it’s like a form of meditation.’

On the fact that she hates being told what to do by her man, fitness-wise:

‘I don’t like to be told what to do by my other half. If he’s like, “Do another squat,” I’m like “No! You get down and do another f**king squat.”‘

… says 29 year-old Rosie.
