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.

Here are Mila Kunis’s Top 3 workout secrets, as shared by Shape Magazine:

1. Get outdoors. Getting fit isn’t just about hitting the gym for Mila. Instead she prefers to get outside. Whether it’s jet skiing, snowboarding, or going for a walk, exercising outdoors helps Mila Kunis have fun during her workouts!

2. Dance it off. Although Mila Kunis is known for her role on “That ’70s Show,” she’s probably best known these days for her role opposite of Natalie Portman in “Black Swan.” For that movie, Mila got in amazing shape by dancing her way to a ballerina’s body!

3. Get adventurous. When it comes to food, there’s not much that Mila Kunis won’t try at least once. Be it a new health food or exotic cuisine, her taste buds are as adventurous as her workouts are!

Check out Mila’s progress for yourself in her new movie, Friends With Benefits.
