Sarah Michelle Gellar's Body Disorder and Workout

| by Michael Allen

In the latest issue of Health magazine, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar spilled the beans about her workouts and insecurities: "I’m a female! I totally have body dysmorphic disorder. I think most women do."

"Before I got pregnant I was in really, really good shape," Gellar recalled. "I think when I was doing Buffy I was a little bit thin, actually, because even though I was working out constantly, it was just the time and the age. But I was happy being pregnant, too. I’m not as critical as I used to be about my body."

The actress says she keeps in shape by working out on the treadmill and Pilates, which she says helps with her scoliosis, a form of spine curvature.

Gellar also explained how being a mother has changed her life: "I just have to remember that I’m human, and I’m a mom. Being a parent changes the vanity at least a little bit. It has to. Your priorities are different."

Gellar revealed that she is introducing daughter Charlotte to a healthy lifestyle: "Well, we’ve already taught her to love healthy food. I think it’s important at a young age to enjoy different tastes. And we make this green juice for her. It’s basically everything but the kitchen sink. We go to the farmers’ market and buy everything and just put it in the juicer: kale, Swiss chard, carrots, celery. You name it. And now we’ve all started drinking it, and we’ve all been healthier."
