Beach-Ready And Real
Read our list of three celebrities who maintain hot beach bodies the old-fashioned way -- by eating a balanced diet and exercising.
In an age where diet pills, potions and surgical procedures are treated as the answer to body issue woes, it's refreshing to find three celebrities who own up to the amount of time, energy and dedication it takes to look amazing in a bikini. Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron and Jessica Biel may all be in different stages of their lives and careers, but they have one thing in common: A commitment to maintaining a balanced diet and exercise program. If you're looking for a little beach-body inspiration, read more about what each celebrity focuses on to stay fit.
Sometimes controversial but always in shape, Gwyneth Paltrow always seems to be bikini-ready. This mother of two has been consistently vocal about her love for all things organic and green and we all know that she loves a good cleanse. Paltrow offers all kinds of healthy recipes and lifestyle advice on her website, goop.com, so if you want to know all of her secrets, it’s a good place to start!
She’s beautiful, famous, amazingly talented and recently named the sexiest actress on Victoria’s Secret’s What is Sexy list. Charlize Theron maintains her slim and toned physique by (gasp) eating a balanced diet. It is reported that she makes sure to eat a minimum of five servings of fruits and vegetables each day, while watching foods that are high in starch, refined sugars and saturated fat. A former dancer, she works out regularly but mixes up the activities by running, practicing yoga, lifting weights and even practicing karate.
Jessica Biel is a self-proclaimed gym nut and it definitely shows. She maintains her enviable figure by eating well and working out. An avid hiker, she also enjoys ballet and works with a personal trainer. Biel’s diet plan has been reported as the six-on and one-off method, where she follows a super-strict diet of no bread, dairy, sugar, salt or meat for six days and then has one day of indulgences.
