On the eve of the anniversary of the comedian shared her beauty secrets. Elena Stepanenko tries to listen to the body and not to overeat. Fans showered the star with compliments, and the actress said in an exclusive interview that helps her to keep healthy and blooming appearance.
A month ago she surprised the whole country appeared at the premiere of her show “Fun, beautiful” on the channel “Russia 1” postroynevshaya noticeable. It turned out, Elena G. over the past year and a half got rid of most of the half hundredweight. The numbers were impressive! The secret of the amazing transformation the actress revealed only to our magazine.
Elena G. why decided on this change?
Don’t like the word “slim”, his root is bad. Better to say “stroynyy”, “to become beautiful”. A year and a half ago, I looked at myself in the mirror and realized that I do not like the reflection. Yeah, not a dancer, and I’m not 20, but still want to look at myself with pleasure.—
What products declined for the ideal shape?
No. Just realized – it is necessary to eat less. The size of the used portion should fit in the palm of your hand, so the table should sit at least six times a day, not two or three, as we used to. If you’re hungry, ask yourself – do you want to eat or to drink? Tilt a glass of water and waiting 20 minutes, the answer the body. If he continues to insist on eating, repeat the ritual. If still hungry, only then eat. You know how it is sometimes: have lunch – and suddenly distracting phone call. Off the meal, half an hour back, and does not want! How we are structured: the realization that the fed, in the brain comes only after 20 minutes. Imagine how much it is possible to push himself during this time?—
What today is the basis of your diet?
Until April 8, he was fasting. The post allow myself whatever I want, just in small amounts.
To help sports used? In my youth you professionally was engaged in swimming…
And because of this, plus great genetics my skin is very elastic. How many times have dropped, never SAG, without any plastic surgery and physical activity. Now just swim on holiday – but not for figures. To look good, people should do everything in fun. After all, God created us for joy and happiness. And happiness is no tomorrow, it doesn’t remember the past, not thinking about the future, he is real, and it’s not day and moment. Learn to appreciate it! And to make it more necessary to love, no matter who the children, relatives, husband, people that you meet on the street or in transport. It’s a universal feeling for women is paramount. If you lose faith in love, the world will lose the beauty.Songs lose their charm, flowers –perfume.—
You work hard, constantly on the road. As a follow health, to all have enough power?
I’m not a hypochondriac, don’t run to the doctor if the ache or the flu. As soon as he felt bad, thinking, what is the cause of this condition. Maybe just tired or do not eat? Or is guilty of frequent flights, jet lag? But, of course, if something is too hard for too long hurts, go to the hospital for tests.
“Not going to confess in social networks”
How do you relax?
Relax, listening to classical music. Plus go to the temple often, are on a pilgrimage – on the Russian cities, fly to Bari the relics of Saint Nicholas on the Greek island of Corfu. Go there not for the beach, and to touch the shrines. I don’t understand how this is physically tired. I did not unload the cars! Yes, you can be tired after the flight, but quickly recovered. My job is not exhausting, I have a happy profession – to make people happy. And, most importantly, see the impact: go on stage, start talking and within seconds you hear laughter. I feel that we have with the audience is a dialogue. I like to meet friends discussing who he has visited, show each other photos.
As for advice, they often turn to you? You are in fact Pro: last year was one of the presenters of the program “Saturday evening” on “Russia 1”, where he played the role of a psychologist.
Yes, although I have no special education. Think you have good intuition. Therefore, friends often ask, saying, Lena, what do you think?.. Always careful to Express my opinion and I emphasize – it can be taken or not. Everyone should be free to choose. If asked to recommend, for example, the doctor will share the contacts, but will focus in this important choice, you need to listen to yourself, to find your specialist, be sure that he will help you. And on some issues they refuse to give advice – saying that I have “not Copenhagen,” that is not competent.—
Spending time in Moscow, life in? Or to shift it onto the shoulders of assistant?
She, of course, but do a lot after the house and clean and cook. Signature dish my standard for the Russian people – fried potatoes with herring, and even borsch with donuts. I love to decorate the house, especially around Easter time.—
What else man need! And what, in your opinion, should be the ideal woman?
To restrain himself when hurt, not to cause a scene when it hurts.—
What do you think about social networks?
No, I don’t. Feel unable to talk about his personal life all over the country. And if you want to confess, I have a Confessor. Do not go on any talk show, not giving a scandalous interview. I’m not interested.—
Don’t even read what you write on the Internet?
Will not believe – no.
And if you hear that you or Eugene Vaganovich criticize, please note? There is even a term “Petrosani” that is not funny to joke…
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Listen to those who came up with the expression, ridiculous joke. I want people to have an idea about the history of the Russian school comic. And if they don’t know nor Zoshchenko or Shchedrin, what can you judge? I tried these “experts” to entertain people in the Soviet state when it was to criticize anyone. As said Mikhail Zoschenko, his “forced to do exercises, linking hands and feet.”—
I can’t believe you are 65. As noted by the anniversary?
Issued a benefit performance of “happy, beautiful” where I came to congratulate colleagues and friends. It showed 8 March on the TV channel “Russia 1”. Happened that my birthday fell this year on Easter. After fly to the island of Corfu – to venerate the relics of St. Spyridon of trimythous. It has become my tradition. In General, dates of special value do not give: live like a river flows, and for all thank God.
