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.”

Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: “I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months”

chrissy-metz-weight - Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: "I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months"

The full story from People:

“I’d be getting maybe two auditions a year, and I’d always see the same small group of girls,” says Metz, who was a size 12 when she was first scouted but dropped 50 lbs. at the recommendation of her then-manager before moving to L.A.

With work slow, she took a job as a junior commercial casting agent but says having to backburner her own dreams “was like watching your boyfriend take another woman out every day.”

Depressed and “eating my feelings,” Metz gained more than 100 lbs. before a panic attack on her 30th birthday sent her to the hospital and snapped her back into reality.

She set about overhauling herself physically and emotionally, including following doctor’s orders to lose weight. “I was so gung ho, I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months,” she says. “All I did was eat a 2,000-calorie diet and walk 20 minutes a day.”

As the numbers on the scale fell, Metz regained confidence. Then she landed the recurring part on American Horror Story: Freak Show that would kick-start her career.

Playing a “fat lady” meant stepping into a fat suit. “It was sobering,” she says. “I thought, ‘What if I become that heavy and can’t walk around or get stuck in the doorframe? I was like, ‘I don’t want this for me.’ ”

The role also lead her to This Is Us. Baring her body and stepping on a scale within the first few minutes of the show’s pilot this past September, Metz — through her character — Kate instantly instantly became a fan-favorite.

“You don’t realize that somebody who’s average or even very fit could relate to someone who’s overweight,” she says of the feedback she’s gotten, “but it’s not about our size — it’s how we look at ourselves and how we feel about ourselves.”

As for what’s next, while Metz says she’s taking steps to lose weight, she does make it clear that the stops along her weight loss journey are “not for anybody but myself. … I want to have a fit, healthy body and not have to be put in a box. I don’t want to be limited by anything.”

Natalia Vodianova Has Half of a Pain au Chocolaton on Her ‘Cheat’ Day:

3CEFBB2800000578-4200962-image-a-2_1486498351064 - Natalia Vodianova Has Half of a Pain au Chocolaton on Her 'Cheat' Day:

On keeping her kids’ weight in check – she has 5 kids:

‘Here’s what I did with my son. At 10, he was frankly getting a little chubby. I said to him, “You cannot sit down with this thing happening to your stomach.” So yes, I am a little military when it comes to them eating c**p… Well I tell them they are gorgeous and beautiful and all those good things, but I tell them to watch what they eat, because those habits will stay for ever, so you need to make healthier choices from the start.’

On her biggest craving:

‘When I moved to France, for two years I had a pain au chocolat every morning. Finally, I woke up and thought, I truly cannot face another one.’

On having one cheat day per week:

‘So now my daughter and I have half each on a Saturday morning – it’s our ritual. And we’re good with that.’

… says the 34 year-old supermodel in Net-a-Porter.

On her very active childhood:

‘I grew up very active, and my parents made me try every single sport there was. I would pick some of them up, but with others, I’d be like, “I hate it.” So they’d say, “OK, let’s try something else.”‘

On the fact that she hates running:

‘I wish I loved to run, because I’d love to run through Central Park or on vacation on the beach, but I absolutely hate it. I do it for five minutes and I’m like, “Ugh, why am I doing this?”‘ she said.

On why she loves working out:

‘I always feel better after a workout. I have more energy, and mentally I’m in a better place.’

On where she gains weight first:

‘God, my butt. My friends always joke around because whenever I turn around, I’ll bump into stuff because I forget that it’s there. In stores, I’ll knock over glasses or candles or whatever. Everything goes there or on my face. But definitely down there.’

… says Sports Illustrated beauty Nina Agdal.

Christie Brinkley Posed for Sports Illustrated at Age 63

3CE88F3F00000578-0-image-a-92_1486434877660 - Christie Brinkley Posed for Sports Illustrated at Age 63

On posing for the magazine at age 63, together with her daughters Alexa, 31 and Sailor, 18:

My first thought was, “At my age? No way!” When I turned 30, I was like, “This is the last time I’m posing in a bathing suit! When this issue comes out, I’ll be 63. I thought, “Those days are over.” But to get to do it with my girls, I thought, “One last go!”

On aging:

In a country that’s very ageist, people love to put you in little boxes. Women feel very limited by their numbers. On a personal level, I thought, if I can pull this off, I think it will help redefine those numbers and remove some of the fear of aging.
