Eva Longoria may be a world-famous actress, but she is concerned about her body just like everyone else.

“Diet and exercise are the key to my figure,” the twice-divorced star, 38, says. “It’s no secret, really. It’s just dieting. I don’t really eat a lot of sugar. My diet usually consists of no sugar, no carbs, and then I work out with a trainer.”

How difficult is it to nix the sweets?

“I was on a no-sugar thing for a couple months, and then I’ll go off it, and then I go back. It gives you more energy and helps you sleep better. It’s the most slimming—it’s the diet that gives me the most results.”

“A diet goes hand-in-hand with exercise,” she says. “Some people think ‘I can eat whatever I want as long as I exercise,’ which is false. And vice versa—the opposite of that. Diet and exercise have to go hand-in-hand.”
