When Beyoncé wanted to get in shape for her show-stopping 2018 Coachella performance following the birth of her twins, she stuck to trainer Marco Borges' 22-day plant-based eating plan for 44 days. "In order for me to meet my goals, I'm limiting myself to no bread, no carbs, no sugar, no dairy, no meat, no fish, no alcohol," the singer, 39, explained. The result? She dropped pounds and gained serious stamina. "When you're eating plant-based," said Borges, "you will definitely have more energy."

It's the oldest trick in the book, but getting your daily fill of water aids in flushing out toxins, speeding up the metabolism and keeping hunger in check. Just ask ageless beauty Gabrielle Union, 48, who drinks a gallon a day! "I started [in my mid-30s]," she's said. "It changed everything from weight maintenance to hair, skin, nails and digestion." (Her pro secret: Try to finish the gallon by 6 p.m. so you're not peeing all night long!)

Miranda Kerr has said her quickest (and easiest!) get-toned trick is to remain active, even when she's not working out. "If you're sitting at an office desk all day, you can clench [and] tighten different parts of your muscles," shared the 38-year-old Victoria's Secret alum. "I do it all the time when I'm in the car or on the way to the airport. [I'll squeeze] my butt or do my calf muscles." She noted that while it doesn't have to be strenuous, "it's important to get the blood flow pumping."

LOSE THE BOOZE

Lily Aldridge stays fit all year round but confessed she takes things up a notch in the weeks leading up to a big runway show. "I start about two months ahead, so I can get in top shape healthily and steadily, and have time to feel good," the model, 35, said. That means sticking to a diet of mostly lean proteins, low-glycemic fruit and veggies — and nixing things like alcohol and salt! "The big thing I cut out is wine," she's said. "And then a week before the show, I stop salty foods."

LIMIT THE CARBS

Vanessa Hudgens dropped 10 pounds in one month when she swapped empty carbs with foods higher in fat, similar to the popular keto diet. "When I ate carbs, I would get that dip in the afternoon, where I felt really sluggish," the actress, 32, noted. (On a typical day, she'd eat an avocado, eggs and bacon, chicken salad and salmon or steak with sautéed veggies.) "When I'm off carbs, my energy stays consistent throughout the day."

Looking for an instant reset? Follow Salma Hayek's lead with a juice cleanse (she's such a fan she created her own juicing company called Cooler Cleanse!). "After doing [one], I'm motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally," the 54-year-old actress revealed. Fellow stars like Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow swear by the practice too. "Cleansing is like my meditation," added Hayek. "It makes me stop, focus and think about what I'm putting into my body."
