Personal Best: Jordana Brewster
The 'Dallas' and 'Fast & Furious' star shares her healthy living secrets.
"My mom told me to always take makeup off before going to bed. She told me, 'Don't touch your face,' but I do. Also, 'Get enough sleep' -- I try to get 7 hours."
When you're trying to lose 5 pounds, what's the first thing that goes and why?
"It's alcohol, because I like martinis or red wine -- both totally superfluous and to cut them is one of the easiest ways to cut calories. I can't live without carbs but I do really watch sodium content -- it's in so much of what we eat. It can have a big impact on how bloated you feel."
