Hilary Duff Covers Health November 2010: I Was Too Skinny

Hilary Duff Covers Health: I Got Pretty Skinny

In the November issue of Health, actress Hilary Duff opens up feeling confident and finding the perfect balance between health, happiness, and love. For Hilary, moderation is key — along with a regular dose of Pilates! The hard work she's been doing with trainer Harley Pasternak shows; Hilary looks fantastic on the cover. Check out the highlights here:

  • On eating healthy: "Recently, I have been eating a lot of vegetables and hummus and fruit — stuff I never really liked before. If I am hungry before bed, I will grab a handful of blueberries. Greek yogurt is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Sometimes I'll chop up a bunch of veggies and out them in a food processor with Greek yogurt and make a dip."
  • On her favorite workouts: "I was a gymnast when I was little, so I think Pilates is really important to helping me stay long and lean. I try to do it three times a week. I also do circuit training. Before I wasn't doing much cardio — just Pilates — and I wasn't getting the same results, so I bumped up my cardio and do circuits probably twice a week."

  • On making workouts fun: "Sometimes my sister and I will work out together, and we laugh the whole time, so it goes by faster. I can also read a script or book while on the elliptical."
  • On letting herself get too skinny: "I got pretty skinny when I was between 17 and 19. I don't know what exactly made me get on that kick, but at the time I was starting to become aware of what people said about me and how I looked in pictures. I literally ate nothing but steamed vegetables and broiled or grilled chicken, with nothing else . . . Not giving your body enough of what it needs is really dangerous."
