AnnaLynne Talks Health, Exercise, and Diet in March 2010 Shape Magazine

AnnaLynne McCord Is Bikini Ready

AnnaLynne McCord looks like she's ready to hit the beach in Shape's March issue. In the magazine, the 22-year-old 90210 starlet shares with readers her eating and exercising tips. AnnaLynne's advice is really easy to follow and even leaves a little room for indulgence. Her vice? Taco Bell Mexican pizzas. Given her svelte body, the pizzas don't look like they're doing much harm — must be her three-hour hikes through Runyon Canyon in Los Angeles. Here are some of the highlights:


  • Don't always clean your plate. AnnaLynne has learned to finish eating when she's full, even if there's still food on her plate. It's a technique she learned from her mother, who lost 45 pounds following The Weigh Down Diet. "The author studied the habits of thin people and discovered that when they're done eating, they wrap up their leftovers instead of just finishing whatever they were served."
  • Make a fitness date with a friend. "With my unpredictable work hours, I rarely have time to exercise and have fun, so my idea of a good workout is to mix them both. I love being outdoors, playing beach tennis, going for runs in the sand, or doing a three-hour hike with my best girlfriend, Mieko."
  • To see more of AnnaLynne's tips,


  • Start cooking. Because of her schedule, AnnaLynne doesn't get to cook as much as she wants but takes every opportunity that she can get. Cooking at home is the one way you know you're getting a healthy meal. A dish that Annalynne loves to cook is citrus marinated herb-chicken with spinach and fettuccine."I love this meal because it's simple and ready in 30 minutes."
  • You don't need to spend money to look good. "When I first moved to L.A., I didn't have a lot of money to join a gym or take classes, so I improvised. My sister and I went to the library and looked over their DVD collection and discovered Neena and Veena, these Egyptian twins who have a whole series of belly dancing routines. We did them all. When you're shaking your booty," she says, "you can't help but feel beautiful and sexy."

I have to agree with Bubblespice....just because you may not be as naturally thin does not mean she takes unhealthy measures to look that way. She is very young and as anonymous stated it doesn't take much effort for a lot of young girls to be thin. Sounds like people are either jealous or just being bitchy.

I think she's way too thin, but that's just my personal taste.

She is too tan and too blonde on this cover. She normally doesn't look like that. Weird that they made her look that way. I had never heard the coke rumors about her either.

Wow, I'm not going to name names, but some of you girls sound pretty bitter.

Yeah, I was going to say, why is SHE on a health magazine? I'm sure that after all the coke she snorts, she probably doesn't have a huge appetite for much of that Mexican Pizza she loves.

I don't know anything about her personal life, but I think her tips are good. I've always said that one of the reasons I grew up being "naturally thin" is that my parents never made me clean my plate.
