Angelina jolie diet secrets

January 27, 2007

lara-croft-angelina-jolie.jpgTo get ready for her new movie Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie had spent a few months on a special diet. Jolie’s been forced to swap cigarettes and coffee for steamed meat, vegetables and soya milk. ‘It’s an interesting test because I used to smoke and drink and I used to not eat breakfast but have a cigarette and coffee”, Jolie said.

Although Jolie admits that Croft is the role closest to herself, playing her was one of the hardest things she has ever done. “It was such a challenge physically,” tells Angelina, who prepared for the role by following a training regime that included kickboxing, canoeing, street fighting and yoga. “A special diet also helped me shape my body. I ate steamed sea bass or steamed beef and vegetables, and I had no sugar and only drank soy milk.” Angelina had lost weight from overwork and was glad the training and healthy diet helped her put back on a few pounds of curves.

“I’m all for curves on a woman, and feeling sexy,” she says, “and I never felt healthier or stronger than during the filming of this movie.” Jolie performed almost all of her own stunts in “Tomb Raider,” which include sword fighting, spear throwing, dog sledding and bungee jumping. For the bungee-jumping sequence, she went through three months’ training. “The most difficult thing was learning how to do bungee ballet,” she recalls. “It took a while to learn how to work with the harness.”

When Angelina Jolie was married to husband Billy Bob Thornton, they were really focused on cleaning up their acts. Angelina said, “No more smoking or drinking, and a sugar-free diet. They want to be really healthy before they embark on having children”.

jessica-alba-california.jpgOne source reports Jessica Alba has been on a diet since the age of 12. Jessica said, “Everyone in my family is heavily overweight. I wanted to be healthier, so I started cooking for myself when I was 12 years old. When I eat breakfast, I’ll have an egg-white omelette and fruit, or cottage cheese and a peach. For lunch, I’ll have a salad. Dinner is usually vegetables and chicken or fish. During the day I’ll have some dried fruit, or I’ll have a chocolate or strawberry frozen yogurt. I don’t really eat desserts or bread.”

Regarding her workout routine, Jessica said, “I try to work out every day for 45 minutes to an hour. I start out on the treadmills or elliptical machine for 10 to 15 minutes to get my heart rate up to 180 beats per minute. Then I do 50 lunges and crunches. Next I get back on the machine for another 10 minutes. Then I work on shoulders, biceps and triceps. I do that nonstop for four sets. When I work out, I have energy and feel good about myself.”

gisele bundchen diet tips or are they?

January 24, 2007

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has revealed the secret to her amazing figure–cheeseburgers. Yup, you heard me…cheeseburgers!

The leggy supermodel, who is infamous for her stunning figure, admits she is a carnivore when it comes to her diet and was even munching at McDonalds when she was “discovered” at the age of just 14. She said: “I like meat, real meat. It’s delicious.”

Despite her appetite for burgers, Gisele balances out her meat-heavy diet with rigorous exercise, she says, “I’m very athletic, so I guess because of that I get to eat what I want.”
Yes, yes I know, I want to hate her for her gorgeous bod too but she’s too damn cute to hate on.

Usher’s been workin’ on his abs since he was 16, but claims that it’s all because of good genes (not jeans… although he does look great in them), hard work and being disciplined – oh yeah, and 1,000 crunches a day. Usher also has a daily routine he calls “forty minutes of funk” which includes stretchin’, skippin’ and jumping jacks. Then he moves onto push-ups, leg raises and tricep dips. Holy… can you say fitness freak! Usher watches what he eats too by munchin’ on foods like chicken, fish, a moderate amount of carbohydrates (rice, pasta, potatoes etc.) and lots of fruits and leafy veggies.
