Why do you keep fit?

To look healthy and stay healthy, to have a better presence onstage. I feel my voice is stronger when my cardiovascular system is stronger. Also to enjoy life better. I love the outdoors, love physical activity, and when you're in shape you can enjoy life at the highest level.

Do you have a personal fitness motto or philosophy?

If I'm not drenched in sweat, it's not a workout.

What's your typical diet?

I try eating organic when I can, because what the FDA allows [in non-organic food] frightens me. I love vegetables, fish, but also a good burger, red meat from time to time. I can feel a craving for salad when I haven't had enough vegetables. If I need steak, my body tells me.

Cake and chocolate cookies are my weakness. I get my sugar fix in coffee with raw sugar. I drink water, coffee and alcohol, everything in moderation.

Do you have any advice for people wanting to lose weight?

Don't eat a lot of bread at night.

Why do you keep fit?

When I was starting out in show business, I learned you gotta stay in shape. And then I started having kids and realized I need to stay in shape to keep up with them and have energy to do my job as a parent. Then you reach a point in life where you realize exercising and eating right make you feel good and keep your energy up, and make your life happier.

I'm not trying to win a posedown and get all oiled up and win a muscle contest. Even being on TV, when they give me the scenes with my shirt off, it's not my favorite. But you don't want to look like a fluffy mess.

What's your Miami workout routine?

In Miami, my apartment has a [private] gym on the top floor so I'll go there. And I'll go on long-a-- bike rides with Bruce Campbell, who plays Sam on "Burn Notice." Usually we ride from Coconut Grove to Black Point. Bruce rode from the Grove to Homestead one weekend when I wasn't there.

What's your typical daily diet?

When I'm "on it," I'm really into making green smoothies with kale and carrots and apples, bananas, blueberries, a little broccoli thrown in. I have a Vita-Mix blender that mixes it all up with water and ice.
