You don't need a fancy gym membership or tons of expensive equipment to get in shape. Gorgeous celebrity-news correspondent and "Dancing with the Stars" alum Maria Menounos is proof. In her new book, The Everygirl's Guide to Diet and Fitness, she gives tips and tricks for getting healthy that require minimal time and money -- just like she did. (That sizzling bikini body is the result of dropping 40 pounds.)
And no, you don't have to give up pancakes, nachos, ice cream and potato skins to get there. Menounos says she eats clean 75 percent of the time and allows herself to indulge in the aforementioned junk food 25 percent of the time.
When she's getting ready for a photo shoot, Menounos swears by asparagus to help her look her best. "Eat 10 sprigs per day for at least five days before an event," she says. (Stocking up right now.)
Even though working out is a must for Menounos, she doesn't advocate dragging yourself out of bed at dawn to do it. "It's important to be active throughout the day -- exercising at your desk or walking on your lunch break -- if you can't make it to the gym." This three-move routine, created by athlete and celebrity personal trainer Andrea Orbeck, can be done anytime and anywhere.
