If you have ever wanted a body like world known surfer Laird Hamilton, then here is your chance. Laird recently sat down with Men’s Health Magazine and revealed what he does (besides surfing of course) to keep his body looking spectacular. He claims that people just think he looks as good as he does because of he surfs, but in reality there is a whole other half, which includes the foods he eats. Laird follows ten rules when it comes to eating:

1) Push Start: He starts every morning with a smoothie (recipe below). If you expect to eat healthy throughout the day, you have to start off well.

2) Don’t Graze: Laird makes sure he never eats unless he is hungry. He doesn’t want to indulge in those extra calories especially when they are not needed.

3) Chew Slowly: If you chew slowly, you will get full faster. You also do not eat unnecessary food.

4) Eat Real Food: Laird states, “Be wary of any food that has been created by humans rather than nature. The ingredients on the labels of processed foods, such as the average cracker or potato chip, are mind-boggling. If I don’t know what it is, it’s not going into my body.”

5) Be Diverse: There are many different healthy foods in the world. Make wise choices and do not be afraid to try something new! Each food brings a certain something to your body, so make sure you try a diverse range of food.

6) Experiment: The thing that keeps Laird interested in eating is finding different types of fruits and vegetables are rarely known. He loves trying unique things that can only be found in certain places.

7) Listen to your body: Cravings, cravings, cravings; story of everybody’s life, and when people crave, it is usually sugary foods. Laird admits that when he craves something sugary and sweet, he turns to fruit such as pineapple and papaya.

Former professional boxer Laila Ali displays her toned physique in her first ever bikini photo shoot for People Magazine.

The 35-year-old mother of two tells People how she wasn’t too concerned about getting her body back after giving birth to her second child.

“The second time around I knew what to expect so I was a little easier on myself. Once I saw that you have to eat right and exercise, that’s what I did and it worked. I have to work out to be fit. I love running. I run three times a week, and I do strength training and weights. And sometimes I throw a little spinning in there.”

Aside from working out, Ali watches what she eats by sticking mainly to proteins and vegetables.

We have to admit that Ali’s diet and work out regimen works in making her one hot mama!
