Marie Osmond lost 46 pounds in 2007 and has kept it off. How’d she do it? By changing her eating habits – and her perspective. “My whole attitude changed to, ‘I just want to be healthy,’ ” she says. The singer joined NutriSystem (eventually becoming their spokesperson), reduced portion sizes and started walking. “It took eight years to put [the weight] on and four months to take it off,” she says. And though she turns 50 in October, “I feel like a 20 year old,” she says. Learn five ways to downsize your portions on Health.com. – Liz McNeil

Rosario Dawson and Kylie Minogue are fans of the Power Plate, a machine with a vibrating platform that creates a rigorous workout by triggering muscle contractions (between 30-50 times per second) while the user tries to stay balanced during exercise repetitions. “It is a great invention and a convenient, time-efficient workout,” says Minogue about the device, which reportedly helps tone, increase muscle strength as well as improve posture.

For Stevie Nicks, a large part of looking youthful at 60 is tending to her skin. “I never go to bed in makeup. I haven’t laid out in the sun since I was 28,” she tells PEOPLE. And the singer plans to keep her beauty routine all-natural. “I had Botox and I hated it. For four long months, I looked like a different person,” she recently revealed to WWD. “You’d have to tie me down to get me to do it again.” Follow Health.com’s tips for getting a glowing complexion naturally. – Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester and K.C.
