Jessica Alba has opened up about her fitness routine

"If I work out four times, I consider it a successful week," she told SHAPE magazine, for whom she is the October cover star. "But it's typically more like two to three days a week because that's what I have time for."

Jessica admitted that she tries to exercise every day, even if it means cutting back on sleep. She explained: "I take Spin or hot yoga classes in the morning, and I sacrifice sleep to fit them in. For me, the benefits of exercise are more mental than physical. Working out takes away that little edge so that I feel happier and more productive and my brain can get kick started."

The Into the Blue actress also opened up about her healthy eating habits, admitting that she considers them just as important as her exercise sessions.

"With exercise, I get a little more toned and I definitely feel strong, but my diet is much more important if I'm trying to slim down," she said. "In that case, I usually don't eat gluten, dairy, fried foods or processed foods. I try to stick to a diet that's low in sugar and carbs and high in lean protein and vegetables."


It's been a busy few weeks for the American beauty, who recently announced the exciting news that she is expanding her Honest Beauty range to include a line of haircare products. To celebrate, the actress shared a stunning photo of herself on Instagram in which she wears her hair down in bouncy, voluminous curls, after having used the products to style the look.

"It's a big day for @honest_beauty – Haircare is here!" she wrote in the accompanying caption to her 8.6 million followers. "We've been working on this line for years. Breakthrough botanicals + pro hair formulas. I know you're going to love it as much as I do! Link in bio! #honestbeauty."
