“It’s so nerdy, but I pack my own lunches of grilled salmon and brown rice, because it helps me stay on track. Craft services [on-set catering] is hell. It’s basically sugar and salt. Sometimes when I work long hours I have trouble with sugar; they’ll keep passing me Tootsie Rolls.”
On her hot mom:
“My family is really active. My mom was in Sports Illustrated, and she was always going to the gym, which made me want to go. As a teenager, I used to sneak in with her and go to step class. I loved, loved, loved step, especially that move, the grapevine.”
“I smoked for just a couple of years, and that was dumb. I quit in college, years and years ago. I think when you’re younger you think you’re invincible.”
… says 33 year-old Jordana while posing in a bikini for the June issue of Health Magazine.
Britney Spears has been looking a little slimmer recently and there is a reason for it:
On staying fit:
“I like it, then again, I hate it. I’m in my 30s now, so I have to work harder to keep it up.”
On opting for the Nutrisystem weight loss program:
“Dieting is tough … because my specialties are spaghetti, brownies and chocolate chip cookies. I try not to make those [cookies] too often or I’ll eat the whole bowl of dough.”
On her workouts:
“I’m doing 90 minutes of yoga twice a week in addition to a lot of cardio — hour-long sessions three times a week with my trainer, Tony Martinez. The [Vegas] performances won’t be simple — they’ll be a massive party from start to finish. And to pull this off, I have to be in top condition and running at full speed.”
“Watching my dad was one of my biggest inspirations. There are days I don’t want to get up, let alone run, and Jason’s (Derülo, her boyfriend) a great motivator.”
On her choice of music while working out:
“Kanye West, Jay Z… and I listen to Jason a lot. I can’t help that- It’s just nice to hear his voice. I’ve also been listening to some new up-tempo stuff of my own that I’m excited for people to hear.”
On keeping her workout routine fun:
“I put my iPod on shuffle and let the song’s face determine my interval. If it’s a slow song, I turn the incline way up and jog to the beat. If a faster song comes on, I turn the incline down and watch the miles fly by.”
On gaining a lot of weight during both her pregnancies:
I gained 65 pounds with my first baby and 70 with my second. After I had my second daughter, I slowly lost the weight by breastfeeding, hiking Runyon Canyon, and working with a trainer every couple of weeks.
I had severe morning sickness both times. So I mostly ate super-sized bowls of white pasta with loads of butter and cheese because that was the only thing that took away the nausea. I also ate late-night cornflakes, Häagen-Dazs ice cream, and scones with jam and cream.
I had to shoot ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’ about three months after I gave birth to Olive (in 2007), so the producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, hired a trainer to work with me three times a week. That was both inspirational and terrifying because I didn’t want to let the trainer down.
… says Isla, who gave birth to her second child 2 and a half years ago.
‘I dress up for the gym. That way, when you look in the mirror you’re like ”Oh, I look cute” not ‘Get me out of here.”
Her boyfriend, Matthew Mosshart, is kind of a vegan:
‘Everyone is like ”Kelly Lost weight because of her vegan boyfriend”. Shut up. It’s because I’m happy. And he is not even vegan.’
On her insecurities:
‘When you change your body, you start to get selfish. You’re like, ”Oh, but that’s still fat and that’s still gross and why can’t I look like that?” To stop myself I have to look at how far I’ve come. I’ve learned how to eat right and look after myself. Also, I don’t weigh myself. If you like what you see in front of the mirror, then what’s the f**king point of getting on a scale?’
