Emmy Rossum sure is one fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine lady! LOLz!
Check out this super seksi cover she landed for Self magazine's Feb 2013 issue!
Not only does she totally rock the mag visually, but she also drops some health bombs on us! Here's what she has to say about what she has to do to keep that body rockin':
“When I want to drop weight quickly, I cut back on my cardio and do a lot of weights instead. It’s counterintuitive, because you would think, I should stay on the treadmill for five hours. I also cut out all fruit and eat a lot of protein and vegetables. My go-to moves are walking lunges, leg raises and my favorite: four sets of 15 ballet pliés, holding 8-pound weights.”
But that's not all, folks:
“I don’t want to do the Ironman or run 10 miles, but I do want to go up into space one day. It costs [hundreds of thousands] right now, but I hope eventually it will be $500. And I want to make sure my heart is fit enough to handle the trip when I’m 50.”
“When I was filming Beautiful Creatures, I ate 1,500 calories a day—nutritionist Carrie Wiatt sent me meals from L.A. But I also gave myself two cheat days a week. I’d eat a steak and fries, an ice cream sundae and then go to Pinkberry. Of course, then I’d wake up the next morning and go, ‘Oh, great, I’m eating one poached egg and a green apple. Shoot me in the face.’ But it was totally worth it. Now I can gain back those 6 pounds that I had lost to do the movie.”
Cheat days are the BEST.
Though, you just gotta make sure they don't become cheat weeks, HA! It's tempting, but what we've seen from you and your performances, Emmy, it looks like avoiding those temptations is key and works!
Plus, who doesn't want to go to space??
