She Only Eats Until She Is Full

Christina stresses the importance of only eating as much as you need and not overdoing it. "When your stomach feels full, do not eat past that," she told People


She Counts Calories


"I try to only have a certain amount of calories per day but eat right so I can keep my energy up," she told People. In the morning she sips on a Bustelo espresso and eats an egg white breakfast burrito with spinach, tomatoes and turkey bacon, followed by a snack of a handful of almonds. For lunch she eats a chicken salad with cranberries, tomatoes and a light champagne dressing, followed by a dinner of two pieces each of yellowtail, jalapeño salmon and albacore sushi. 


She Doesn't Consume a Lot of Dairy

Christina tries to maintain a low-dairy diet "to avoid cellulite," she tells People. "Limit total daily consumption of meat, poultry and fish to 3 ounces — the size of a deck of cards,
says the Mayo Clinic. "If you consume dairy products, use only skim milk and low-fat varieties, and consume them in moderation — about two servings daily. Full-fat dairy products contain saturated fat that can raise your cholesterol. Even lean cuts of meat and skinless poultry have some saturated fat and cholesterol and can be high in calories."


She Drinks a Lot of Water

"I try to drink as close to a gallon of water a day," she revealed to People. "Hydration is how I keep my skin clear and my body energized throughout the day." According to the star this equates to about seven bottles of water a day.


She Exercises a Lot

Exercise is a regular part of Christina's life. "Sometimes I get completely focused and I'll go in and work out— sometimes even twice a day— at least three times a week because I'm so excited and really into it. There's other times when my schedule gets really crazy and I have to figure out when to fit it in. And then sometimes I'm just lazy— and it's okay to be lazy. That's balance for me," she told Essence. When it comes to where she works out, she admits she prefers doing them outside. "I love outdoor workouts. In LA I'll hike up the Canyons at a steady pace; something that gets my heart rate going. I also like to do a combination of cardio and strength training. I've never really been crazy about bootcamps and CrossFit; those are too rough for me."


She Exercises for Confidence

What makes Christina feel confident? "Working out," she told Essence. "For me, if I'm not in the right shape, I'm tired. I don't have the energy to do the things I like to do, which gets a little bit depressing. Working out is great therapy too. When I workout I pray. In that moment, I am thankful because of my health and how my blood is flowing because all of that stuff is going to keep me around longer."
