olivia wilde 021 Houses Resident Hottie, Olivia Wilde, Stays Slim celebrity fitness celebrity diets When the Fox medical drama House returns tonight, loyal fans will tune in to catch-up with their favorite sexy doctor, played by actress Olivia Wilde. As one of the sexiest doctors on TV, her diet and workout allow Olivia Wilde to eat right, stay balanced, and keep her body in top form.

When it comes to diet, Olivia is a self-described “sort-of vegetarian who eats fish.” Although she rebuffs meat, and avoids bread and pasta as much as possible, she does not always succeed. Avoiding bread and pasta is especially difficult due to her Italian husband, Tao. Additionally, cheese and good wine are staples in their Venice Beach loft.

Although it sounds as if Olivia Wilde follows a strict diet, she tries to keep up a relaxed approach to eating. Olivia says, “I don’t own a scale, and Tao banned the word fat from our house.” “If we eat too much, we say, ‘I feel clogged up.’” When following any diet, it is important to maintain a healthy attitude towards food. Creating too much pressure can eventually cause unhealthy eating habits followed by guilt or remorse.

Uma Thuman Celebrity Workout Pecy Jackson

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighting Thief hits theaters today, and fans excited to catch the new flick from the director of the first two Harry Potter films. In Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Uma Thurman plays the Greek monster Medusa, but has the body of a Greek God.

Uma says the key to staying fit, despite her busy schedule, is always being active. She does not follow a daily routine. Instead, the slim star says, “I just try to workout whenever I can. I don’t have a consistent regimen. I just do my best to try to do something every single day. I think consistency is the key. Just get out there and take a walk. Do half an hour on the treadmill. Just put on your shoes and go.”

However, for her role in the blockbuster Kill Bill, Uma had to prepare for martial arts fighting scenes. While preparing for Kill Bill, Uma trained several hours a day, six days a week. The result? Incredibly sculpted shoulders. Now, you can get sculpted shoulders by following this strength training routine Uma’s personal trainer, Christel Smith, shared with Fitness magazine.

Post image for Vanessa Minnillo Workout Playlist

Last week we saw how True Beauty host Vanessa Minnillo prepared for the beach this summer with a detailed look at her bikini body workout.  Today, we are back with more on Vanessa and the workout playlist that keep her motivated in the gym.

“I love songs that get me pumped and ready to go during a workout, “ says the former host of MTV’s Total Request Live.

Vanessa Minnillo shared her workout playlist with Self magazine.  Here’s what’s currently playing on her iPod.

Black Eyed Peas – “Boom Boom Pow”
Gorillaz – “Feel Good Inc.”
OutKast – “B.O.B”
N.E.R.D. – “She Wants to Move”
Foo Fighters – “Best of You”
Kings of Leon – “Use Somebody”
Timbaland – “Throw It on Me”
Saul Williams – “List of Demands”
Madonna – “Like a Virgin”
‘N Sync – “Bye Bye Bye”

That’s quite a mix of songs right there.  But staying motivated in the gym is all about your tastes and what works for you.  Some people find it easier to get motivated with pop songs, while some need hard driving rock songs.   You may like different types of music for different types of workouts.  We always like to see what other people are listening to in the gym to get some ideas for ourselves.  Sometimes you will surprise yourself by what music gets you pumped up and moving through your workout.
