DIET

Hi­lary, 30, typ­i­cally starts her day with oat­meal (with a lit­tle al­mond but­ter, golden raisins and maple syrup), toast or a pro­tein shake. For lunch, it’s a salad with pro­tein in the form of a tur­key burger or a piece of fish on top. And for din­ner, the Younger star likes to cook with her son Luca, 6, mak­ing any­thing from her Pa­leo scal­lops recipe to a grilled skirt steak with pineap­ples or peaches. One key to her di­et­ing suc­cess is plan­ning ahead. “On the week­ends,” she has said, “I’ll meal-prep a few things that I can pack with me and bring to set dur­ing the week.”

EX­ER­CISE

There’s no work­out that self-pro­fessed “strong lit­tle gal” Hi­lary won’t try, from strength train­ing at Soho Strength Lab to classes at a stu­dio like AKT or Orangeth­e­ory Fit­ness. She’s been taught to book­end her work­outs with car­dio at the be­gin­ning and end, on the Stair­mas­ter, tread­mill or row­ing ma­chine. When she doesn’t have time to go to the gym, she’ll do a body­weight work­out in her room, in­clud­ing jump­ing jacks, pushups, dips and squats. And she’s a big be­liever in rolling out her legs af­ter a work­out. “I keep a foam roller un­der my bed,” Hi­lary has said, “and it’s changed my life.”

SIM­PLE SE­CRET

Hi­lary’s one­time trainer Har­ley Paster­nak has said most of the work in trans­form­ing your body is done out­side the gym. “We give all of our clients a Fit­bit and have them hit at least 12,000 steps a day,” he says. “We also ask them to get at least seven hours of sleep per night, and we try to have them eat well.”
