Eva Mendes Reveals Her Diet and Fitness Secrets

By on August 10, 2011

Eva Mendes, 37, is considered one of the most actresses in Hollywood. Recently during a photoshoot for Zest magazine, Mendes revealed that surprisingly, bread and pasta are some of her favorite foods.

Mendes explained that she focuses “on the inside out-so it’s all about what I’m eating, how I’m feeding my body and how much water I’m drinking. I don’t eat meat, but I eat a lot of fish and brown rice.”

She also said, “I love bread, too. People are always surprised when I eat bread in restaurants! I mostly stick to wholemeal, though. When in doubt, go dark with the food-so I stay away from white pasta, white rice and white bread and that keeps things simple for me.”

However, Mendes supplements her attention to her diet with regular exercise.¬†She admits, “I hit the gym three to four times¬† aweek to do light weights-not too many repetitions-which target my whole body, and some serious cardio-normally sprinting and interval running. The minimum I do cardio for is 35 minutes, but you can get a lot done in that time if you use it wisely. And then I spend an hour on the weight training.”

She also mixes up her exercise routine with yoga twice a week, which she says is “mostly astanga, but my yoga instructor creates a program for me based around what I need-so if my muscles are tight from running, we’ll do poses to open everything up.”
