Mila Kunis workout and diet

Black Swan star Mila Kunis is no stranger to strict diet and exercise routines. Indeed, Mila Kunis (as did co-star Natalie Portman) controversially lost 20 pounds last year for her role as ballerina Lily, as we previously reported. Her low-calorie-intake diet was “hell,” she described to Star. “I was on a five meal-a-day diet of 1,200 calories. I could eat anything that fit into the palm of my hand. That’s it.” Her workouts were equally punishing: she worked with a trainer for seven days a week, five hours a day, for a total of five or six months.

Luckily, her role in the upcoming film Friends With Benefits is less demanding – though she did have to spend a lot of onscreen time naked. To stay in top shape for her revealing role, Mila Kunis reverted to her pre-Black Swan workouts of choice: snowboarding, Pilates, and a “little bit of weights.” Obviously, snowboarding is out of the question during the summer months, but the basics of this total-body-toning sport can be translated into exercises at the gym. Since the key elements of snowboarding are balance and strength, exercises such as leg presses, seated rows, lat pull downs, abdominal work, leg curls, and calf raises, that target the body’s stability muscles (core), are key. Mila discovered her love for Pilates while shooting her romantic comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Pilates focuses on physical conditioning, which helps Mila maintain her naturally lean look.

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.

celebrity Drew Barrymore diet

Drew Barrymore has always been proud of her curves, but in 2004 she realized she needed to workout and diet to feel healthy. She lost 20 lbs. and six years later, Drew has proven it is possible to lose weight and keep it off while following a reasonable diet and workout routine. To see Drew’s results for yourself, check her out in her latest film, Everybody’s Fine, which released on DVD this Tuesday.

Drew has never been a fan of Hollywood the fad diet, and finds that sensible, sustainable eating leads to long-term weight loss. Prior to 2004, Drew says, “I was a full vegetarian, living on carbs.” Now, “I eat more protein. If I want that pasta, I’m gonna have it though! I don’t eat a ton of meat, but if my body needs some, then I’ll eat it. When I don’t feel good about myself, I’ll eat healthier or eat a little less.” Drew eats three meals per day, consisting mostly of organic fruit and vegetables. Drew also drinks a lot of water and takes vitamin C, which keeps her skin looking luminous.

Although a vegetarian diet wasn’t right for Drew, check out other stars, including Olivia Wilde and Kristen Bell, who say a diet without meat helps them stay slim and feel healthy. The USDA also has some helpful tips for creating a healthy, balanced vegetarian diet.

Drew’s diet helped her lose weight, but Drew feels the most important change was adding exercise to her weekly routine. Drew says, “I didn’t exercise before, but ever since I started, my body has really changed.” She jokes, “it turns out those people who say exercise is good for you are right. I hate that!” Drew’s favorite workout is running because she finds it an outlet. She runs about five miles, three days per week. Drew also enjoys the Bar Method, a workout combining yoga, pilates, and other exercises. Finally, Drew enjoys walking, biking, dancing, swimming, and even mini-golf. ”It doesn’t matter how you raise a sweat,” she says, “so long as you have fun doing it!”

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.
