“Everyone knows that I’ve never been into working out. I was always very happy with what I have,” she says of her voluptuous curves. “Then I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body.” After her “aha” moment, Vergara really started to take care of her body—building up strength with her trainer through Pilates-inspired Lagree Method workouts using a Megaformer (a machine that has a system of springs and pulleys with adjustable resistance to work your entire body) and classes like New York-based Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone [SLT].
When it comes to her diet, Vergara says her mentality has changed ever since moving to LA—she’s a big fan of making Dr. Oz’s vegetable juices and tries to stay away from processed foods—but she still has a serious soft spot. “I heard about someone in LA who got hypnotized so they wouldn’t eat candy.
