Yes, she could be a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model, but Southland's Regina King knows that it's what's inside that counts. Her family has a history of hypertension and despite her athleticism, heredity caught up with her. In her 20's, she was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. She went on a life-saving mission, literally, and instead of going on medication, the star took to improving her health the natural way. Her change in diet and exercise helped return her blood pressure back to normal. She cut out dairy and switched to rice milk to lower her cholesterol levels. She also added healthy fats, like flaxseed oil and omega-3 supplements. She points to exercise for relieving stress and helping her sleep better and says her motivation is "to be around to enjoy her grandkids."
Regina King's Heart
Kristen Chenoweth's Blades
favorite over-the-shoulder pose shows off her toned back which she keeps lean through
running. Her newest gig as Carlene Cockburn, the head soprano in the church choir and Bible blogger, is sparking
controversy. ABC's GCB couples Christian values with sinful characters, but there's
no dispute that her diet and fitness regimen are on point. She's been spotted on the streets of New York and even participated in
the Heel-A-Thon in Central Park. She tells Shape she eats almonds,
oatmeal, and drinks tea daily and splurges on 90-calorie cans of Coca Cola to
treat herself. Watch GCB, Sundays at 10/9c on ABC. If you'd rather the live
version, catch Kristen who's currently on tour supporting her album Some
Reese Witherspoon's Feminine Shape
demure dresses compliment her slim torso and the soft curves of her
figure, which are framed with her ladylike hands-on-hips pose. She credits yoga and running from slowing down the inevitable aging she is coming to grips with. The 35 year-old star tells Elle Magazine, "Nothin's going north. It's all going south, might as well put in on film
now. But not without a lot of padding and a push-up bra."
Sheryl Crow's Abs
diet as her way to losing weight, rather she said, "I stopped
stressing." After mentioning the grueling job of carrying the Disney
show "That's So Raven" at the tender age of 15, she says the weight fell
off after she switched to smaller portions. About working out, she
said she does do it, but doesn't like to sweat because of her hair. Whether you like her formerly voluptuous figure
or are more into her newly slim look, Raven's smile is what's kept her in the spotlight as it's infectious and
refreshing amongst the many serious stars who find it hard to show their
teeth. Sorry Victoria.
Paris Hilton's Signature Pose
sexy collarbones, shoulders and a neckline that is to die for. Whether
draped in diamonds or bare with her platinum blonde locks cascading,
Paris knows how to work her body with any outfit. Exchanging parties, coffee and Red Bull for organic foods and
documentaries on healthy eating, Hilton reportedly weighs 115 pounds and
tells People, "I'm really happy with the weight I'm at, I feel like it's healthy and normal … I'm just making smart choices."
Penelope Cruz Reaches Out
off-the-shoulder dresses which she usually shows off during awards
season. While they are not big on definition, her arms fit her frame
perfectly. She and hubby Javier Bardem's romance blossomed on and off the set of 2008's 'Vicky
Cristina Barcelona' for which Penelope won an Oscar. Her sexy shots
from the movie beg the question, how did she do it? Her trainer Gunnar Peterson tells InStyle.com she did a mixture of strength training, cardio
intervals and stretching as well as weight training sessions with
machines, kettle bells, free weights and medicine balls.
Kate Walsh's Everything
Jennifer Lopez Steps It Up
legs as well. So great she was recently named the new Legs of Gillette's
Venus Goddess razors for which her lifestyle was on full display. The
commercial features her rocking the stage, walking the red carpet, and
playing with her kids on the beach, all the while showing off her toned
curvaceous steppers. Her recent commercial for Kohl's shows her dancing in the Spring collection of her new fashion brand for the department store.
Ciara's Rock-Hard Calf Muscles
feature her well-defined calf muscles. She shares, "Dancing--however
you do it, even if it's in your living room--is a great workout." She also gets her ride on. She recently posted a video on her twitter page showing her hopping on a motorcycle. On the acting side, she's set to star in Adam Sandler's That's My Boy.
Eva Longoria's Cleavage
While Eva's reign as a "Desperate Housewife" is almost up, her latest plunging neckline is sure to keep her in the spotlight. While she tells Health Magazine she'll travel everywhere after shooting wraps, we're hoping her dresses don't go too far. The petite actress hates jogging and all things cardio, but her degree in kinesiology is proof of her commitment to working out. She skips the elliptical, but loves weight training and abs. She and Mrs. Obama might be gym partners in the coming months, she's been very vocal about the upcoming presidential campaign and is one of the national co-chairs for President Obama's reelection campaign.
Carrie Underwood's Vegan Legs
Carrie Underwood has
been a vegetarian for over seven years, but the American Idol winner and country
music superstar just dropped a few more animal products saying she's now 95 percent
vegan. Dairy and cheese aren't good enough for Carrie's well-defined legs. She tells
Self magazine, "My veganism is based on a concern about where my food is
coming from." True to her small town roots, (shoutout to Checotah, Oklahoma!), she hasn't ruled out running Underwood farm.
"I'll never eat meat again, because I look and feel better without it, but
If I could raise my own cows and chickens and produce my own eggs and cheese,
it would be awesome! The food would taste better, because the animals would be

Singer Debbie Gibson
is a new contestant on Celebrity Apprentice and the 41-year-old is looking like
a million bucks. She says she has never gone into anything half-hearted and we
can see that she gives her all in the gym. Whether it's sit-ups, planks, or leg
raises, it's working well, as evidenced by her
six-pack abs. Best known for her #1 Billboard hit, Foolish Beat, for
