Ali Larter diet and working out

DOB: February 28, 1976

Alison Elizabeth “Ali” Larter is an American actress and former fashion model best known for her screen roles aimed at teenage audiences. Larter can currently be seen on the hit television series Heroes. She has also had roles in successful Hollywood films including, Varsity Blues (1999), House on Haunted Hill (1999), Final Destination (2000), Legally Blonde (2001), Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) and Obsessed (2009).

 

 

In March 2008 Ali was on the front cover of Shape Magazine in March 2008. In that edition, she disclosed her diet, exercise and motivation tips.

 “Working out has always been a part of my life,” says Ali, who grew up playing sports like softball and soccer. “Now that I’m in my 30s, it’s become even more important for me to take care of myself.” A dedicated runner, Ali takes advantage of the near-perfect Los Angeles weather with 25-minute morning jogs three or four times a week through the Hollywood Hills. “This is nonnegotiable,” she says of her two- to three-mile run. “I don’t think about it, I just do it. I never, ever miss my workout. Never!”

Ali’s diet is based on portion control. She does not follow any particular system of weight loss and eats sensibly.

She might splurge occasionally and have pasta, champagne as well as chocolate soufflé. The next day, she will have a simple salad for the main meal and a frozen yogurt for the dessert.

Ali sticks to an organic diet and loves cooking her dinners. She avoids eating carbohydrates at night time as they quickly cause her to put on weight. So she would make a sauce with the main dish and add a salad, leaving out bread and pasta.
Ali Larter’s Organic Portion Controlled Diet

* Breakfast: Muesli with vanilla soya milk
* Lunch: Grilled chicken and green salad
* Dinner: Lamb Ragout and green salad
* Workout: In order to stay in shape Ali has always been committed to exercise.

Exercise

Working out is a massive part of her life. Her sporty look is greatly due to her playing sports like soccer and softball and soccer when she was younger.

She makes sure she jogs for at least 25 minutes every evening. She never, ever misses out on her jogs, which are usually 2-3 mile runs.

Heather Graham strip club and the Hangover

Heather Graham Gallery

DOB: January 29, 1970 is an American actress and fashion model.

Heather Graham says her visit to a strip club was very unimpressive, because the girls couldn’t dance.

Heather Graham was “disappointed” when she went to a strip club.

The actress learned to pole dance in preparation for her role as a stripper in ‘The Hangover’ and was astonished after seeing the less than impressive antics of her real-life counterparts.

She said: “I went to a strip club to prepare for the role but it was a big disappointment. I’d taken these classes on how to dance but if you go to a strip club, no-one’s dancing. Everyone just stands there. The girls are all just on stage and it’s all about lap dances.”

Heather is not the only celebrity who has learned to pole dance.

Supermodel Kate Moss showed off her skills in the White Stripes’ music video for ‘I Don’t Know What To Do With Myself’, while Britney Spears recently insisted a pole be installed in her hotel room.

The ‘Toxic’ singer – who is a huge fan of pole dancing as it helps maintain her new slender figure – made the unusual request to staff at London’s Dorchester Hotel, where she will be staying when she performs at the city’s O2 arena in June as part of the UK leg of her ‘Circus’ tour.

 

“Never say diet” according to the latest Shape Mag. Hmmm… I am always amused by such statements and looking at what Heather Graham eats, I can say without hesitation she does diet, but doesn’t know it. While there may be some extraordinary individuals who can eat whatever they want without gaining weight, for 99.49% of the population this does not hold true. A self described foodie, Heather Graham loves healthy Mexican and Japanese dishes.

Here’s one of Heather’s favorite recipes:

Heather’s Favorite Broccoli Recipe
While making a film in Dublin, Ireland last year, Heather got addicted to this crunch dish from Avoca Caf.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5-7 minutes
Nutrition Score per serving:
(2 cups): 285 calories, 22 g fat (69% of calories), 4 g sat fat, 17 g carbs, 10 g protein, 7 g fiber, 176 mg calcium, 3 mg iron, 370 mg sodium

Ingredients
¾ cup hazelnuts
6 cups broccoli florets (bite size)
1 ½ cups cherry tomatoes, halved
4 oz feta cheese
¼ cup reduced-fat French dressing
Freshly ground pepper (optional)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread hazelnuts on a shallow pan and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown. Rub off the skins with a clean kitchen towel and allow to cool.In a large mixing bowl, add broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and cheese. Add nuts once they’ve cooled. Pour on the dressing and toss gently to combine.

Celeb Diet Doctor Weigh In…
Here’s the deal. As a healthy foodie, Heather can control what goes in her dishes and judging by her recipe she’s eating low cal. People often get in trouble when they eat out because there are a lot of added stealth calories. The more you can prepare your meals at home the better you’ll be at controlling your calorie intake.

Heather works out on a daily basis and it shows. She says “I’ve been practicing yoga five days a week for 11 years. About two years ago I realized my stomach was kind of mushy, so I started doing Pilates twice a week to strengthen my abs. Now it feels and looks much more toned.” She also uses Transcendental Meditation to help her de-stress.

Heather, who is 37 btw, has got the bod of a woman in her 20’s. Her recipe of yoga and Pilates, along with being a healthy foodie is obviously paying off.

Squats with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Squats with Arnold Schwarzenegger

Squats is a lower body exercise used in strength training. The exercise’s main emphasis is on the quadriceps and the glutes, but it also involves the hamstrings, the calves, and the lower back. The squat is often called “the king of exercises” by those who believe it capable of inducing more and faster muscle growth than any other exercise.

The squat is done by bending the legs at the knees and hips, lowering the torso between the legs, and then reversing direction to stand up straight again. The torso remains relatively upright throughout the movement. It acts as a supporting structure, unlike its role in the deadlift.

Proper technique is critical, otherwise very serious injuries or gradual injury over a period of time can occur. The back must maintain its natural curvature and not “round out” (excessive lumbar or thoracic kyphosis), otherwise excess strain can be placed on the spine and cause serious injury.

Lifting belts can be used to help support the lower back.
