January 5, 2009

Most people are fascinated by celebrities. Who are they dating? What are they wearing? Where are they vacationing?  And the big question, how do they keep up those movie star figures? While many of them have to stick to a strict diet and intense exercise routine to conform to Hollywood’s ideal, others just try to follow a sensible meal plan like eating mostly fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Recently Kate Winslet and Alanis Morissette revealed their weight control tactics. Winslet, star of “Revolutionary Road” and “The Reader”, doesn’t want to be Hollywood skinny, but prefers to just feel comfortable in her body and that means she doesn’t binge on chocolate. She also confesses to not working out hours at a time because she doesn’t have the time, but instead puts aside 20 minutes every day to do a workout DVD. Morissette also follows a sensible diet and eats mostly fruits, vegetables and whole grains and exercises regularly.

The good news is it doesn’t take a calorie-restricted diet and exercising five hours a day to look and feel your best, even for the big screen. You can create a sensible eating plan that works for you. Maintaining your weight is really quite simple if you stick to a diet that consists of mostly fruits, vegetables and whole grains. When you complement this healthy eating plan with movement, you can achieve optimal health.
