Post image for House Star Lisa Edelstein’s Long-term Vegetarian Lifestyle

House star Lisa Edelstein believes the key to looking great is about healthy lifestyle changes, not following a strict diet. Along with her daily Ashtanga yoga practice, Lisa follows a balanced vegetarian diet. Check out House every Monday on Fox!

Growing up in a Kosher home taught Lisa Edelstein about food restrictions at an early age. She says, “if you’re raised with a food restriction, it’s not that difficult to have another kind of food restriction.” She told Prevention, “I’ve been a vegetarian since I was a teenager–when I was a kid, they called me Rabbit–but I grew up in a family where we had meat everyday, and where green beans were gray. I didn’t try broccoli until I was 16.”

Lisa suggests approaching healthy eating as a lifestyle, not a diet. She told Parade, “To become a healthier eater, make tiny changes.” “If you’re really addicted to certain kinds of food, it’ll be very hard to stop permanently if you give them up all at once. If you eat a lot of starchy foods, introduce a vegetable once a week, then twice a week, and then three [click to continue…]

Panettiere1 Heroes Workout: Hayden Panettiere role preparation fitness news Yesterday we took a look at Heroes star Milo Ventimiglia’s workout.  Today we examine the fitness routine of his co-star and former flame Hayden Panettiere.

Panettiere was a gymnast for nine years growing up and still sports one of the fittest bodies in Hollywood.  A simple Google image search returns plenty of results of Hayden going to and from the gym.

The 20-year old actress also says she stays fit by doing her own stunts for her role as the world-saving cheerleader Claire Bennet on the NBC hit drama.

Below is a video of Hayden working out at an LA gym with her trainer.  Here, we can see that the bulk of her workouts consist of running on the treadmill and circuit training.

Celebrity Workout Tips from Taylor Lautner

Here are some quick hits on celebrity workout tips and info on celebrity workout routines we’ve heard about in the last week…

Taylor Lautner Keeps his 6-pack…

“[I did] the same thing I did to put it on in the first place — a lot of hours in the gym. The most challenging part for me is the eating process,” Taylor Lautner explained. “The interesting thing is it’s just as hard to maintain it as it was to put in on in the first place. I didn’t know that.”
“We’re busy promoting these films and I don’t have time to get into the gym, I don’t have time to eat, and I’ll drop five pounds like, ‘That!’” he said, snapping his fingers. “It’s pretty hard to put it back on.”

TCW says…Whether you are a hard gainer or need to lose some extra body fat your diet is essential to getting the results you want.  You need to treat the food you eat as fuel for your body and not make eating something you do for pleasure.  It takes a unique level of commitment to get results like the one’s that made Taylor Lautner the Fittest Male of the Year in 2009.

World Cup Refs Run…A Lot…

“Referees, who can be twice the age of the players, sprint across the field keeping up with the players and closely tracking the action. They tend to run 12 miles during the game — five more than the players, according to data from the U.S. Soccer Federation,” according to a report by CNN.

TCW says…For more info on World Cup soccer workouts check out our posts on Jonathan Bornstein, Clint Dempsey, and Tim Howard.

Lo Bosworth Stays Motivated…

Lo Bosworth of The Hills actress told People that she has recently gotten into spinning in addition to her boxing workouts.  “As far as fitness, I love indoor cycling — it has made a really big difference. I feel a lot skinnier than I did last year. It’s kind of the ultimate cardio,” said Bosworth.

Lo Bosworth also stays motivated by exercising with a group or an instructor, saying, “Because if I’m by myself, I go to the gym and do 15 reps. And then I’m like, ‘Oh, my e-mail. I need to make a phone call.’”

TCW says…Group fitness classes have gained immense popularity in the last year.  If you can find a group of people to work out with you will be less likely to skip the gym because you won’t want to let them down.  It can be easy to talk yourself out of going to the gym when the alarm is blaring and you aren’t quite feeling ready to get up, but you feel more guilty if you have a friend or two waiting on you because you know bailing on them will disappoint them.
