Super Slim Bryce Dallas Howard Stuns at Critics’ Choice Awards, No Costly Dress for Black Mirror Star
To achieve her own slim figure, Howard follows a healthy diet. As a mother of two, Howard managed to lose the weight twice and look amazing both times, but she currently loves her size 6 figure.
As for her diet, breakfast is a large part, and she ensures she never skips it. Her other meals include cheese, proteins, and other favorites, and the star has admitted that she doesn’t necessarily adhere to a specific diet, she just makes healthy choices that work for her without depriving herself.
When Howard starred in Jurassic World, she had plenty of training to do in order to run away from dinosaurs in heels – not the wisest choice, but that’s what producers and the director wanted. To ensure she could manage, Howard trained her legs and strengthened her leg and calf muscles. This involved plenty of calf raises and squats; she wanted to ensure she had very strong ankles so as not to injure herself.
Although she achieved that goal, she realized halfway through filming that she was neglecting other parts of her body. Therefore, she switched up her routines from lower-body specific to full-body workouts. To make the switch, she relied on co-star Chris Pratt for workout advice.
