Gloria Estefan Celebrity Diet and Workout. Gloria says is the “Denzel Washington Diet” was the best diet she has ever been on. When she heard Denzel was in Florida staying near her home Gloria spent the weekend working out. “I almost lost 10 pounds in a day because Denzel was staying on our island and I was running and jogging, waiting for him to come out… I just missed him.”
Gloria Estefan Diet
“I eat healthy foods but am not fanatical about keeping to any diet. If I eat more than I should because I’m celebrating or simply ‘wanted to’ then I’m a little more careful for a couple of weeks. “

“I also do Iyengar Yoga twice a week. It helps me stay in balance with the rest of my life.”
Q: Have you ever done sports?
A: I’ve been playing tennis a lot! In tennis, you do a lot of sprinting. I enjoy that because you don’t even notice you’re doing exercise, and sports are a wonderful way to workout. As a kid, I was into sports. In fact, I have my dad’s bronze medal from the Pan American Games of 1952. He played volleyball, and I treasure that. I played volleyball for a while, before my dad got sick. As a teenager, I played squash, and then I translated that into racquetball.
Q: What is your biggest motivation to stay so fit?A: First of all, there’s that hardware in my back. If I don’t work out, I start feeling it. I like to look and feel good, and the older you get, the more important it is.
Q: Who talked you into starting Pilates?A: It was actually my doctor. He just said, “Listen, I’m telling everybody to do Pilates.” Then, I saw my assistant of three years when I came back from a vacation, and her body was completely different! Her body just got tighter. And she told me she had been doing Pilates (Winsor Pilates). If you start it, you see changes right away. I started Pilates about a year ago. Because of my back injury almost 17 years ago, my core is crucial. Pilates stresses that and keeps everything aligned. It’s not a strain, and it concentrates on the smaller muscles. I haven’t stopped my other workouts, but this has been a great addition.
Q: What were the biggest changes you saw?A: That my waistline was getting trimmer, and my posture was incredibly better. I’ve had horrible posture ever since I was ten years old since my boobs grew in too quickly, so I started hunching over at that age. After my accident I had to work hard to keep my shoulders back. Pilates has opened up my whole chest area. (Source: Prevention Magazine)
