Post image for Superstar, Emma Stone, Does Not Succumb to Fad Diets

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].”

Anna Paquin has been working hard with her trainer Clay Burwell. Anna’s workouts typically two-hour-long sessions that combine boxing, plyometrics, and strength training.

Self Magazine recently covered Anna Paquin’s Workout, discussed below, which helped her look sexy naked for this season of True Blood.

Varitek04242008 thumb Jason Varitek and Dustin Pedroia Ready for Spring Training celebrity workouts athlete workouts Jason Varitek may no longer be the Red Sox starting catcher, but that is not stopping him from being as fit as ever as spring training for the 2010 campaign gets near. Recently Varitek meet with NESN to show how he’s been preparing.

During the off-season, Tek’s trainer, Leslie Eddins, has him on a strict diet, workout program, and training regimen.

Pre-Workout Meal (breakfast): egg whites, turkey, and tomatoes. In addition, he gets his initial carb load with a bowl of oatmeal with strawberries, bananas, and walnuts.

Training Day: He trains 2.5 to 3 hours per day at the gym where he focuses on core strength and cardio. He then follows that up with throwing and hitting drills.

Post Workout Meal (dinner): Steak or chicken with vegetables and a sweet potato. He’ll also have a protein shake, which generally includes oatmeal and peanut butter.

Watch an average training day for Varitek and see some of the core exercises his trainer has him doing:

Don’t be fooled by former Rookie-of-the-Year and American League MVP, Dustin Pedroia’s small stature. (Oh yeah, he’s also won a Silver Slugger award and a World Series – but who’s counting?) As he showed WEEI, he, too, has his own training regimen and personal chef preparing him special meals suited for his workouts, but still manages to join life on his downtime.
