X-Men and The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is one of our favorite role models. Not only because of the powerful women she plays on the big screen (hello, Mystique and Katniss!), but also because she's been very vocal about loving the body you have. She proves that staying fit and healthy and strong doesn't mean giving up the things you love (that would be sad, right?) but finding balance—eating and sweating it out.

JLaw's trainer Dalton Wong released his book The Feelgood Plan and it was where it was revealed in the foreword, written by the actress herself, that he trained her for X-Men: First Class, saying, "Dalton is different to other trainers because he understands what my body needs to look its best—how to exercise, when to allow time to unwind, how to enjoy food," she wrote. "I could never live on a 'diet' and instead Dalton has taught me how to eat, move and live a delicious but healthy life. I will always thank him for that. I'm so happy he has written a book with such a wonderful message." (via TheDailyMail.co.uk)

Check out some of his advice on how you, too, can stay healthy and happy below.

1. Eat right. Eat only when you are hungry and stop when you're full. The key is to be grateful for what you have and choose the kinds of food that will make you feel full longer. Dalton's recommendations: "Your key ingredients are protein, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates." The smallest changes can go a long way.

2. Don't forget to treat yourself. Treat yourself to a burger, a bar of chocolate, or even a scoop of ice cream. You don't have to deprive yourself of your favorite food just because you want to be healthier. 

3. Exercise to feel happier. Sometimes, all you really need is to release the stress. Choose the type of workout that you enjoy—dancing, aerobics, or running. Dalton says that sugar isn't always the answer when you're feeling tired. "You can get more energy from exercise or simply chilling out. Sugar isn't the solution," he said.
