In an interview with US magazine, Gabrielle Union explained that she makes her plate as colorful as possible in an effort to eat healthy foods. “I try to make my plate like a rainbow, so you can work in some sweet potatoes or yams or yellow peppers just to try to make your plate as colorful as possible.

I do 15 on the elliptical, 15 Spinning, then I do 15 run,” said Jennifer Aniston in an interview with Elle Magazine, referring to her rigorous, daily workout routine. “And then I do portions of the Body by Simone DVD for floor work. It's so freakin' hard, it's unbelievable."
Heidi Klum, 43
It can be hard to commit to a set fitness routine, especially when you’re a mother like Heidi Klum. “Sometimes I jump on the trampoline with my kids or take a hike with my dogs in the canyon by my house,” she told Glamour magazine, referring to how she likes to incorporate exercise into her daily activities. “Sometimes I run for 30 minutes on my treadmill, but I prefer to be outdoors. When I'm traveling, it could be doing a few sit-ups in my hotel room before I head to work.”

“I do spinning, and then, at home, I have a Megaformer and I work out with [trainer] Jen Yates,” Vergara told us in an exclusive interview during her cover shoot. “I actually enjoy eating healthy; I love a good salad or a piece of grilled chicken."
Victoria Beckham, 42
We already know that former Spice Girl and fashion designer, Victoria Beckham, attributes her clear skin to a strict salmon diet, but that’s not all she eats to keep herself looking her best. “[I] typically get sushi, something quite healthy. I do like green juices and things like that,” Beckham told Harper’s Bazaar.
Cindy Crawford, 51
In an interview, Cindy Crawford told us her favorite fitness routine for a healthy, fit body—and it doesn't include any complicated workout equipment. "If I’m home, I work out three days a week with a trainer," Crawford explained. "I start out with 15 minutes of cardio, then we do squats, lunges and triceps and biceps with weights in a gym—free weights are important for muscle tone. I also try to go for a hike, a walk or a bike ride once a week with my family or a friend." But that's not all, Crawford also disclosed the one food she had to cut from her diet completely: "At a certain age, I just couldn't have soy sauce anymore—it made me really puffy. So now, I just have lemon on my sushi."
