Julia Faye West is an exceptionally talented actress, producer and a model. She is in conversation with Namita Nayyar President Women Fitness.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: You were born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. You began your acting classes for stage artists in preschool and kindergarten. Throughout your childhood and adolescence, you participated in plays and Improv ComedySportz on stage. You took private coaching with instructor's from The Milwaukee Performing Arts Center. Later you amassed a number of television credits including The Disney series "Even Stevens" as 'Gwendalyn'. Later your determination and tenacity in acting propelled your professional career to the height where you have been at the top of the world of acting and glamour. Tell us about your journey that took you to where you are now in the world of acting and modeling?
Ms. Julia Faye West: My first decade of life was experienced in the mid-west and through the mid-nineties. Things were a lot different back then. I had a very old school hands-on approach to acting and modeling during my youngest years of education. It wasn't until my early teens that things began to turn for me. Prior to my extensive use of technology and the internet, I enjoyed the stage. Because we cannot edit, rewind or rely on current forms of computer graphics, our work had to be flawless the first time we performed in front of our viewers. Because of this I feel that I was trained to practice and work harder. It makes most of my acting and modeling work feel like a breeze these last ten years!
Ms. Namita Nayyar: What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you shall like to share?
Ms. Julia Faye West: People often say they don't have time to workout. Why not do sit-ups or leg lifts before leaving the bedroom in the morning? How about lunges while walking from one room to the next? Eighty percent of fitness is about calorie intake. I'm so busy I can't always make it to the gym, I have an elliptical machine setup where I can do 30 to 60 minutes of cardio while watching the news first thing in the morning. I stay disciplined sometimes by telling myself for example, that I cannot check my cell phone, until I am on the elliptical machine.
If you do not have the luxury of time for the gym, incorporate exercise in your daily routines. Whenever you have time off, it's wonderful for our body mind and spirit to get some fresh air outdoors. I love to hike with my dogs and with friends. It's a fun adventure to bike ride with your family. There are plenty of ways to become active with significant others in your life.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Do you take some special diet or have a strict menu that you follow to remain healthy and physically fit?
Ms. Julia Faye West: I drink a lot of water. I never weigh myself. People have many reasons why their weight might fluctuate a few times each month, I go by how my clothing fits me to determine the strictness of my regimen. I try to make sure that I'm never too hungry or too full. I'm at my best when I stick to vegetables and fish as my staple foods. I eat berries and plain yogurt, health oils and fats like those from coconuts, avocados, olives and nuts. I'll always have a day here or there when I veer from my normal habits and indulge in comfort foods like chocolate and french fries. I consider these to be my "free days". It's best not to have more than 1 "free day" per week.
