NIA’S ESTIMATED DAILY INTAKE 1,400 calories*

Nia Long, 38

Long loves her curves because “being super-skinny ages you.”

MORNING

Fat-free bagel with fat-free cream cheese and smoked salmon

Supplements including Formula 50, 2 oz. aloe vera juice and a liquid multivitamin with minerals

LUNCH

Cobb salad with turkey bacon, lettuce, tomato and 3 oz. of roasted chicken

SNACK

Roasted-garlic hummus

DINNER

Stir-fry with ½ lb. shrimp, ¾ cup brown rice and 1 cup broccoli in cooking oil spray with 1/8 cup low-sodium soy sauce

SNACK

Apple tart (apples, cinnamon, crushed Kashi GoLean cereal and whey powder) created by her trainer Harley Pasternak

EXPERT TIP

Stir-frying with cooking spray allows Long to “sauté without adding tons of calorie-laden oil,” says nutritionist Joy Bauer. But all those vitamins may be overkill: “If you’re taking a multivitamin, it’s best to avoid taking other vitamin blends unless you’re under the supervision of a physician.”

DAISY’S ESTIMATED DAILY INTAKE 1,500 calories

Daisy Fuentes, 42

The TV host eats more than 10 different fruits and veggies a day.

MORNING

Handful of grapes

Egg-white omelet with spinach, tomatoes, herbs and sprinkling of fiber powder and flaxseed

Mug of oolong tea

One multivitamin, ginkgo biloba and CoQ10

SNACK

½ grapefruit

Handful of almonds

LUNCH

Small garden salad

½ grilled turkey burger on whole wheat bread with lettuce, onion, tomato and mustard

DESSERT

Three strawberries with dollop of cream

Mug of chamomile tea

EXPERT TIP

Fuentes “does an excellent job of managing her weight the good old-fashioned way: by eating several small meals a day and including plenty of fruits and vegetables,” says Bauer. “The more produce, the more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants—which means better skin and hair and overall health.”

KIM’S ESTIMATED DAILY INTAKE 2,000 calories

Kim Cattrall, 52

If she needs to slim down, Cattrall says, “I stop the bread and alcohol.”

“As we age, we lose muscle mass,” says Bauer, “so I love that she incorporates lean protein with lunch and dinner. Protein helps build muscle, which keeps your metabolism humming.”
