Country’s Angels: Julianne Hough, Martina McBride and LeAnn Rimes
Shape sat down with Julianne Hough, Martina McBride, and LeAnn Rimes as they revealed their simple tips for staying fit, strong, and sexy.
Three amazing women. Three busy lifestyles. Three different ways to approach health and well-being.
From the moment we got them together they acted like best girlfriends, gabbing over coffee about husbands, boyfriends, and kids, and comparing notes on how they deal with their insanely busy lives.
Check out some of their real-life solutions to balancing it all, from healthy eating to much more, that they shared with each other.
Shape: What's your typical diet like?
Julianne: I'm probably the worst person to talk to about that because I pretty much eat what I want. My trick is to stop as soon as I'm full. Last night my sister ordered Mexican food and I was like, "What are you trying to do to me? I have a shoot tomorrow!" But I ate until I felt satisfied, and then I was done.
Martina: I became fascinated with nutrition when I got pregnant with Delaney [her 14-year-old daughter]. I love to read about healthy eating and preach to my husband, who doesn't listen. Now I'm trying to teach it to my daughters. And it's working, because they all love green vegetables like broccoli but funny enough, not other colorful ones, like carrots, squash, and beets. I'm always telling my girls, "As long as what's on your plate is healthy, you should eat, eat, eat!" And they should be able to have treats too. We should all have treats, just not...
LeAnn: ...all the time. But there are days when you can't stop yourself!
Martina: So what? Why do we get so angry at ourselves when we eat foods we love? Do you think guys walk around going, "I just ate a cheeseburger and I'm so mad at myself"?
LeAnn: No, they don't! I just saw my husband [Dean Sheremet] at the food table eating a brownie, and he already had another one in his hand. And I said, "Are you going to eat two of those?" And he's like, "Yeah!" And I said, "I hate you right now [laughs]!"
