For Ashley Greene, staying healthy is all about balance, especially when it comes to what she eats.

“What I put into my body has a huge impact on the results I get out of it,” the actress, 29, says in the April issue of SHAPE. “Eating keeps my metabolism cranking.”

Greene’s diet mainly consists of fish, chicken and vegetables. She is also a master of healthy swaps – the Twilight star (in a THEPERFEXT Bella Top on the cover) opts for spaghetti squash instead of pasta and cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes.

“These foods energize me for my workouts,” she explained.

But she definitely makes room for splurges as well, telling the magazine her favorites are grits, cheese, red wine, and chocolate!

Greene makes up for her occasional cheat meal with a dedicated fitness regimen, and swears by early morning workouts.

“To fit my workout into my day, I have to be out the door early,” she said. “That means I don’t have time to think about whether I’m tired or to come up with excuses. And I’ve found that when I exercise in the morning, I have a much more productive day. After I finish my workout, I feel as if I can conquer the world.”

When she can, Greene loves to exercise outside, whether it’s going hiking or surfing.

“Getting outdoors is so refreshing to me,” she said. “It’s a combination of the exercise, soaking up my surroundings, and clearing my mind. It’s my happy place.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
