As a pro dancer, Julianne Hough’s body is her living – and boy, does she take care of business! The fit star has some of the best abs in Hollywood, thanks to her intense workouts and super-nutritious diet.

“Being on tour requires every last drip of energy I’ve got,” Jules says. “After a high-intensity performance, it’s important to keep my body properly fuelled with efficient foods.”

But even the most disciplined diva can quiver at the thought of being filmed in a bikini. So when Jules was told she had to appear in her swimmers in a matter of weeks for her 2013 flick Safe Haven, even this slim stunner had to get serious fast.

Her slimming schedule

“I went from eating everything in sight to cutting out carbs, salt, sugar and alcohol,” the hottie, 28, reveals.This is a tried and tested technique for anyone hopingto cut a size.

Carbs and saltcan cause water retention, while alcohol encourages the body to store up fattening foods – like sugar – while it works to eliminate the booze. But Julianne didn’t starve herself, either.

What did she eat?

“Instead, I filled up on lotsnof proteins like eggs, fish and chicken, plus tonnes of vegies and more water than you can imagine,” adds Jules.

“I was still eating – a lot, even! But I was eating clean.” In the end, her tough routine got her camera-ready, and she’s still just as devoted to healthy living now.

And while Jules needs to look amazing for her job, we can all learn a thing or two from her shining example. Read on for her hot-bod plan…
