Milla Jovovich How She Lost 62 Lbs!

Posted on

She’s made a career in such action movies as Resident Evil, but Milla Jovovich “is not someone who embraces exercise,” says her trainer Harley Pasternak. Combine that with her ability to down three peanut-butter-and-jelly slathered bagels, and her weight soared to 192 lbs. while pregnant with daughter Ever Gabor, born last November. With only five months to prep for bikini scenes in her next film, A Perfect Getaway, the 5’9″ actress signed up for five-day-a-week workouts with Pasternak, who also cooked for her. His 5 Factor books prescribe three meals and two snacks daily, each including five elements: protein, complex carbs, fiber, fat and fluids. (See box for a typical menu.) He also calls for circuit training, focusing on “upper body, lower body, abs and cardio.” Crunches tightened her abs—but, says Pasternak, the real credit for getting Jovovich, 32, to her 130-lb. pre-baby weight goes to “bringing structure to her diet after eating whatever.” Now, he adds, “She’s back to being a hot mom.”
