Get the Bod: Hilary Swank Believes in Moderation

Hilary Swank won me over in her role in Million Dollar Baby. When it comes to a fit and healthy body, any strong female who can box is top on my list of inspirational women.

When asked how she stays so healthy, she told Men's Fitness:

"Well, I think I'm really blessed with good genes because I really am a big eater. I really like food and food is life to me, but I kind of eat what I want and do it in moderation." I'm with you on that, Hilary. I feel disgusting if I eat a whole brownie sundae or entire bag of kettle corn on my own.

She also said, "If my body craves something I allow myself to have it." Hallelujah - a celeb that doesn't deprive herself of life's little sweet pleasures.

Since she works nonstop, she says "I have to have sustained energy so I understand about nutrition." She also takes vitamins and exercise is a huge part of her life. She said "it's a huge stress relief; it mentally makes me feel great. It gets my blood going, it gives me more energy, and it makes me think better."

What's her normal exercise routine? She goes running 2 or 3 times a week, and takes Pilates 3 days a week. She doesn't exercise everyday, she says, "I usually take 2 days off during the week."

OK, moderation, vitamins, and exercising about 5 times a week - sounds reasonable to me, Hilary. I think it's wonderful that she looks incredible by following principals of moderation and healthy living.
