Modern Family's Sofia Vergara shares her hot body secrets
Thursday 02 August 2012
Actress Sofia Vergara has a body to die for and has millions of viewers drooling over her gorgeous curves on Modern Family each week. Here we take a look at how she keeps in such good shape…
On her weight…
At a height of 5′ 7″ Sofia, 40, says her perfect weight is 8st 13lb, but she does give herself a slight weight range without putting too much pressure on herself. “I always allow myself a window of three to five pounds when I’m not working.”
"It's a reality that for you to be healthy, you need to be at the right weight. You are what you eat. It takes effort. I'm not trying to be skinny like a supermodel but I don't want to be overweight. I want to feel good and I want to look good."
"But I don't ever want to get super skinny. I think when women reach a certain age, they look better with a little fat in their face. I'm lucky I'm Latin because people expect me to be a bit more plump."
"I hate to work out. I get in a bad mood when I have to do it! I'm not athletic. But I love dancing to Latin music, so I have a trainer who dances with me for an hour, three times a week.
“The truth is, you work out for health and you do look better. And I have a responsibility to the show. Nobody wants to see Gloria with a fat ass!"
Sofia also recently discovered Physique 57, a cardio program combined with toning and strength training, which she does a few times a week. Like most of us, the hard part for Sofia is finding the motivation to get to the gym. So what’s her motivational trick?
"I psychologically fool myself into believing it's part of my job. And then, of course, once I'm done, I'm really glad I did it because I feel so good."
On her diet…
‘When I really want to be good and control myself, I have lollipops in my handbag — instead of having a tiramisu, I have a boring lollipop to stay true to my diet plan.”
Sofia does not eat red meat and sticks to an organic lifestyle. She said, “Since I was used to eating organic in my diet plan back in Colombia, when I moved to Miami, the meat didn’t taste good to me, anyway, so I stopped including it in my diet plan. I’ve been off it for 16 years.”
"Everything in moderation," she advises. "Not too much food, not too much exercise, not too much anything. ‘
