Be proud of your shape

Ac­tress Beth Behrs did a com­plete mind-body 180, ditch­ing junk food and kick­ing her own ass—and at­ti­tude—into killer shape. Then she wrote a book about it. Learn from her mis­steps, give her the praise hands, and re­mem­ber, if she can do it, you can too.

BABY STEPS

When I started film­ing 2 Broke Girls, I ac­tu­ally was broke, so I was eat­ing all the junk food they kept on set. But then I de­vel­oped a skin rash that lasted over six months. The doc­tors said that it was due to stress, my diet, and lack of ex­er­cise. I thought, ‘How can I change this all at once?’ I couldn’t. So I did it slowly, with short walks and things like choos­ing a piece of fruit over soda when I needed sweets.”

BORE­DOM IS THE DEATH OF EX­ER­CISE

“I need to shake it up, or I lose mo­men­tum. I love Yoga With Adriene videos on YouTube, car­dio hip-hop, and kick­box­ing.”

KEEP YOUR HE­ROES ON STANDBY

“Carli Lloyd is #body­goals. Ac­tu­ally, the whole U.S. women’s na­tional soccer team is. I know they train like crazy, but it’s not just their bod­ies that I ad­mire, it’s ev­ery­thing they stand for as women.”

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS SUPERHUMAN

“My book, The To­tal Me-Tox, is about self-care and self-love, and how they lead to suc­cess and em­pow­er­ment. My goal is to en­cour­age women to be their best selves in a warm, friendly way. Think: hu­man, not superhuman.”

GET YOUR BRAIN IN THE GAME

“‘Me-tox’ means do­ing what works for you; for me, that’s 20 min­utes of med­i­ta­tion, twice a day. It’s my big­gest reset.”
