Sofia Vergara‘s Diet

Summary

Vergara was always naturally slim, and says when she was a teenager, she’d wear two pairs of jeans to give herself more of a shape. Still, time catches up with all of us and now she has to put more effort in to maintain her hourglass figure. Consistency is Vergara’s watchword with regard to both diet and exercise. She isn’t too strict, but she doesn’t like dieting and so she makes an effort to keep cheating to a minimum during the week. She says she naturally gravitates toward healthy foods, such as Greek yogurt, fruit, nuts, fish, and vegetables, but that she also has a sweet tooth that she needs to keep an eye on. She also makes sure to stay hydrated with plenty of water and considers it one of the most important parts of any beauty routine.

Sofia Vergara‘s Supplements

Collagen

Collagen

Vergara adds a spoonful of collagen to her nightly cup of cham-omile tea. Collagen helps keep joints strong, and supports healthy skin, hair and nails.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

When Vergara is home alone, she slathers herself in coconut oil and snuggles up in a ceramic wrap. Coconut oil is a superfood that does your body good inside and out. Its MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) contribute to heart health, increase fat-burning, reduce hunger and kill bad bacteria.

vitamin B12

vitamin B12

When she was still in her 20s, Vergara had her thyroid removed after doctors found a tumor on it. Supplements that support a healthy thyroid include vitamin B12 which can boost energy lev-els, zinc to improve immune function, and selenium which is an anti-inflammatory and also optimizes zinc’s benefits.

Adaptogens

Adaptogens

Adaptogens such as rhodiola rosea which can help alleviate ad-renal fatigue.

Chamomile

Chamomile

Vergara often has a calming cup of chamomile tea in the even-ing. Chamomile not only helps you get a restful night’s sleep, it also improves digestion, reduces inflammation and offers anti-cancer effects.

Skin Vitamins

Skin Vitamins

Vergara is a fan of a nutritional supplement for skin, which in-cludes antioxidant vitamins A, C, E, lutein and lycopene that pro-tect against free radical damage. It also contains fish oil which reduces inflammation, promotes new cell growth and hydrates the skin.

Iron

Iron

Iron also supports thyroid function and a deficiency can result in anemia and fatigue.

magnesium

magnesium

Hypothyroidism may affect magnesium levels, which can result in poor sleep, anxiety and nervous system disorders.

Probiotics

Probiotics

Probiotics are also important for healthy thyroid function because a fair amount of thyroid hormone conversion occurs in the diges-tive tract.

Sofia Vergara‘s Lifestyle

Sexy Socks

Vergara says she has to wear socks to bed, and sneaks them late at night when no one else is around to see. She is usually up at 5 am to be on the Modern Family set.

Keeping the Faith

Vergara was raised Catholic, and was hesitant to try modeling due to her religious beliefs. She asked the nuns at her high school their opinion, and they gave her their explicit permission to go for it.

Flower Power

Vergara says she always has flowers at home, on set, and on location. Orchids are her favorite because they last a long time.

Home Girl

Vergara is good friends with the singer Shakira. They were both born in Barranquilla, Columbia.

Huge Fan

Growing up, Vergara says she watched Spanish-dubbed version of Married With Children starring Ed O’Neill who plays her husband in Modern Family.

Cancer Scare

Vergara had her thyroid removed in 2002. She considers herself lucky the doctors found it early, and she also wants people to know it is possible to lead a normal life with hypothyroidism.

Practically Perfect

Vergara says the scar left by the thyroid surgery doesn’t bother her. The South American beauty also has rosacea, which she treats by being gentle with her skin. She used to use scrubs and masks, but now follows a very simple beauty routine.

Fantasy Island

Vergara loves everything about the island of Capri, from the food to the people to the language, and says she never gets tired of going there.

Family Tragedy

In 1998, Vergara’s older brother was murdered during an attempted kidnapping. Vergara left Columbia and came to the US in part due to the civil unrest.

‘I didn’t want to be an actress. I wanted to be a dentist, but you never know what life will bring you.’

Vergara’s beauty Advice

‘Stick to what works for you. No matter what is going on in fashion, if you know that a certain color looks good on you, stick to it.’

{

Vergara on her Cancer Scare

‘I was young. It was traumatic. I had a young son. But I tried not to panic. I decided to take charge and inform myself, so I went to bookstores and found out everything I could about it.’

{

‘Listen, I’m not afraid of anything. I’m Columbian.’
