rachel mcadams book club 5 lg 66594899 Rachel McAdams Stays Fit by Going Green fitness news celebrity fitness Rachel McAdams is known and loved for her hit roles in Mean Girls, The Notebook, Wedding Crashers, and The Time Traveler’s Wife, released on DVD Tuesday. You can catch Rachel on the big screen in Sherlock Holmes. How does Rachel land all these hit roles? Surely her infectious smile and award worthy acting chops have something to do with it, but her tiny-waisted and toned body certainly doesn’t hurt. Check out Rachel’s workout and diet!

To stay in shape, Rachel McAdams practices Kundalini yoga every morning. When she is on set she often starts her yoga practice as early as 4:30 A.M. Kundalini yoga is described as one of the more spiritual types of yoga. It goes beyond physical poses, which are very physically intense, and emphasizes breathing, meditation, and chanting. Rachel’s choice of Kundalini yoga is consistent with her overall earth-friendly attitude. She never uses air conditioning, saying, “I can’t live with it. I feel I’m not living in the world.” Rachel also stays fit, and green, by riding her bike and walking everywhere. It always feels great when a workout improves your body and the planet!

Although Rachel McAdams has healthy workout habits, she has some interesting diet techniques. She says, “I drink maple syrup.” “Then I’m hyper so I just run around like crazy and work it all off.” Commentators question whether Rachel’s maple syrup consumption is really part of the “master cleanse” or whether Rachel simply enjoys sugar. The master cleanse is purportedly a “cleansing” diet which involves drinking 6 to 12 glasses of a combination of lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, and water, exclusively for at least 10 days. Grammy winner, Beyoncé, has also been linked to this diet. However, cleanses are not recommended for long-term health and can seriously deplete the body of vital nutrients.
