Emma Stone, famous for her large roles in recent movies “Superbad,” “Easy A,” “Friends With Benefits,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” “The Help,” and of course in the upcoming film “The Amazing Spider- Man,” admits to Vanity Fair that although she was never into staying thin, she’s “definitely more conscious of it as [she’s] gotten older.” Despite all the pressure from Hollywood to be skinny, however, Emma announces that she will not succumb to the wild diets that many celebrities endure in order to be slim. She despises the recommended diets from trainers requiring dieters to eat a “palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life,” and confesses that doing Pilates and weight training with Andrew Garfield (her co-star in upcoming Spider-Man movie) “brings out the anger in [her].”
Best known for his role as “McSteamy” in the hit drama Grey’s Anatomy, Dane is now starring among an all all-star cast in Valentines’s Day. The movie opened this Friday in conjunction with the lover’s holiday.
The flick’s incredible cast might be the fittest group of actors and actresses ever to appear in one movie. Others starring alongside Dane include Anne Hathaway, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Julia Roberts, and Taylor Swift.
Here are a few tips from Dane:
“Embrace the morning. Morning dictates everything, including the mood, scope, and pace of the day. Fuel up with a nutrient-loaded breakfast (an omelet will stifle your appetite for hours). Look forward to the morning and your chances of conquering the day skyrocket. ‘I’m out of bed before the alarm goes off,’” Dane told Men’s Health.
Studies have shown that people who eat eggs for breakfast consume less calories throughout the day then those who don’t. Packed with protein and nutrients, they don’t call it the “incredible, edible egg” for nothing.
“Going to the gym and looking for a specific result is a short-lived existence, as opposed to going to the gym and adopting it as a lifestyle. Develop a routine, because it’s much harder to break it if you have one. If you have no routine, you have nothing to break, so discipline goes out the window.”
Summer is finally here and its time to hit the beach. The Victoria’s Secret swimsuit models are certainly ready to show off their bodies.
Here are some of their celebrity diet and workout tips for looking your best at the beach this summer as revealed by Miranda Kerr, Marisa Miller, and Candice Swanepoel.
“As for diet, Miranda Kerr’s trainer encourages her to eat a lot of healthy carbohydrates and lean protein for breakfast – foods like old-fashioned oatmeal, egg whites, veggies, cottage cheese, muesli, yogurt and fruit. Then it’s salads and chicken or fish for lunch, and a combination of fish, turkey, vegetables and chicken for dinner.”
“For breakfast — yogurt with blueberries, raspberries, apple, lemon after that. Sometimes some wheat-free toast with avocado on top. And then for lunch — some salad, vegetables, grilled fish, steamed vegetables. Almonds or almond butter,” Miranda Kerr revealed at the 15th-anniversary swim catalog party.
“[Mine] is probably chocolate lindt balls,” Miranda admitted.
Her celebrity workout…
Miranda Kerr workouts of 3 to 4 times per week for 75 minutes at a time with trainer Justin Gelband. Kerr tells StyleList she keeps her exercise regime fairly consistent, explaining that it “always involves a mix of yoga, low-impact cardio, resistance and functional exercise, combined with high energy training such as boxing or running.”
“I love yoga,” Miranda also said. “I’ve been practicing it now for about 10 years and I love it!”
“I always love a bit of Kings of Leon, Alexi Murdoch, Muzik City, Phoenix,” she says. “And you can never go wrong with Dr. Dre!” says Kerr.
Her advice for swimsuit shopping…
“Everyone has different body shapes so it’s best to find a swimsuit that flatters your individual shape, ” she advises. “For example, if you have a small bust, a halter bikini top with slight padding will look best. Most importantly, with the right attitude and confidence any swimsuit will look good.”
