When comedian Jeff Dunham decided he wanted to get in great shape for his wedding, he didn't have to look too far for help.

For three months leading up to their Friday wedding, Dunham tells PEOPLE that he and Murdick, 32, religiously followed the diet she sticks to when preparing for a National Physique Committee bikini competition: one that’s high in protein, low in carbs, moderate in healthy fats and free of gluten, dairy and alcohol.

Harley Pasternak Blogs: How to Get Great Abs

Originally posted 09/26/2012 01:30PM

Few things are as sexy as a lean, sculpted midsection.

Whether it be the sexy midriff on Rihanna or the trim abs of Robert Pattinson, a toned midsection is imperative if you want to look good with – or without – clothes.

The first thing you should know about getting a great midsection is that you have to get rid of the fat covering the area.

Since there is no such thing as "spot reduction," you need to eat well and do regular aerobic activity. Take the stairs, get off the subway a stop earlier, park your car a little further away to burn any fat that may get in the way of seeing your hard-earned stomach muscles.

Gisele Bündchen had some company during her workout Wednesday morning – none other than fellow Brazilian mama Camila Alves.

The ladies arrived separately at their Studio City, Calif., gym, the Tracy Anderson Method Studio, early in the morning – but they were happily chatting (and sweating) together during their long, strenuous workout.


"Yoga stretches are very important to Gisele," a source tells PEOPLE. "She showed Camila a few stretching and abs exercises that are great for new mothers." Trainer Tracy Anderson, whose workouts include Pilates, wasn't present.

Alves has two kids – Levi, 22 months, and daughter Vida, 4 months – with Matthew McConaughey, while Benjamin, Bündchen's son with husband Tom Brady is 5 months.

According to the source, "Gisele and Camila seemed to enjoy working out together – and had fun chatting during the workout." – Pernilla Cedenheim and Ainka Shackleford

Alanis Morissette Gets High from Running – and the Occasional Joint

Originally posted 12/15/2009 10:45AM

Alanis Morissette struggled with depression her whole life, but recently, she found an effective antidote: running.

Morissette, 35, tells Runner's World that "running has made being depressed impossible. If I'm going through something emotional and just go outside for a run, you can rest assured I'll come back with clarity."
