Wonder Woman, The Rock, Katy Perry reveal their personal diet hacks …
(TARA CONRY AND HEATHER DOYLE, NEWSDAY) These fit celebs have been remarkably open about the diet and exercise strategies that help them get amazing results.
Gal Gadot transformed herself into Wonder Woman with a full-body workout, designed by Mark Twight, according to Muscle and Fitness. It included rowing, burpees with broad jumps, crab walks and pull-ups, which she was unable to do when she first began training.
“When you feel strong, it changes everything — your posture, the way you walk,” she told Glamour, adding that she gained about 17 pounds of pure muscle while training.
Katy Perry is known for her energetic, physically exhausting performances.
The “Roar” singer says she stays fit by following celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak’s “Five Factor” program, which calls for eating five small, nutritious meals each day and exercising five times per week with “short, high-intensity workouts including lunges and hip thrusts.”
A typical meal for Perry might include grilled chicken, quinoa and grilled asparagus.
But she isn’t a gym rat. “I love being outdoors,” she said in the interview. “I prefer to go on hikes or ride my bike.”
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
For ‘Hercules,’ Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson said he stuck to a 22-week diet program that included egg whites, filet mignon, chicken, fish, oatmeal, broccoli, asparagus, a baked potato, cream of rice, salad and complex carbs.
The “Modern Family” star had “never really been into working out” until she turned 40, the actress told Shape magazine, adding, “I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body.”
Vergara said she modified her diet, drinking more vegetable juices and trying to stay away from processed foods.
And when she does indulge, she says she makes up for it by exercising harder the next day, adding: “My workout motto is really simple: No pain, no cake!” READ THE FULL POST AT NEWSDAY. Also of interest: Jennifer Aniston: ‘Great Keys to Staying Youthful’
