In a recent interview, seksi Parenthood star Lauren Graham dished on all of her health secrets that have kept her looking like one of Hollywoods youngest looking 43-year-olds.
The actress believes "balance" is key for a healthy life, sticks to protein and veggies to maintain that fabulous figure, loves to jump on a trampoline, and best of all, never plans on getting plastic surgery.
It's so refreshing to hear that and actually believe it!
Check out how this hawt mamma stays active and leads a healthy lifestyle to make sure she feels great about herself every day.
Q: What does being healthy mean to you?
"Balance, and I think that is something you're always aspiring to have. Sometimes I'll think, 'That was a really nice day. I ate well, I exercised, I called some friends, wasn't working too hard,' but I rarely have one of those. [Laughs.] They're more often, 'I'm too tired, I didn't run as far as I wanted.' And so that's something I've gained peace with. I expect now for the day to be imperfect in some way."
Q: What's your go-to power meal?
"I guess it's protein and vegetables. I've pretty much always been on a diet since I was born. And the women in my family struggle, so I find the less I think about food, in a way, the happier I am. In general, I think I eat less the less I think about it."
Q: In what areas of your life are you most and least healthy?
"I'm probably most healthy in exercise. I've always really liked being active. I do Spinning classes, I run, I have a trainer, I do Pilates with my sister Shade."
Q: What's your favorite healthy-life advice?
"Just keep moving. Someone said this to me a long time ago. It's a Buddhist saying, I think: 'There is no wasted effort.' It applies to so many things. It applies to being physical, like, 'Let's take a walk outside.'"
Q: Are there any ways you stay fit that are more surprising than regular workouts?
"I just had a vacation, and we went skiing. It was such a cool vacation because the whole day is around something active. And occasionally we'd go to the gym at night."
Q: If you're ever feeling down about your looks, how do you get the body confidence you need?
"Well, part of my job is pretending. And I've honestly never led with my looks. I've always thought my strengths were I'm smart, and I have a good sense of humor."
Q: How do you feel about plastic surgery?
"I don't ever plan to do it, but I don't know how I would feel. Like, if you have worked with and hung out with, as I have, Diane Keaton. She's in such good shape, you know? She, to my knowledge, has never had anything done. And why would you? She looks great, and she doesn't look fake."
We couldn't agree more!
Thanks for sharing all of your wisdom, Lauren! It all seems to have worked just perfectly for you, so it will probably benefit others as well.
