“I try to follow a ‘biblical diet,’ which has nothing to do with religion, but with eating things as they originally came out of the ground, before there was genetic altering of food. We have become more obsessed with having a shiny apple than with having an apple that doesn’t give us cancer.”
I do sneak snacks but it’s not like I’m sneaking anything bad. It’s a good thing; I’m sneaking apples and edamame.
“I’m trying. It is part of the process. I definitely don’t deprive myself but I try to eat, if I want something, I’ll try to eat it earlier in the day.
“My problem is that I go to a basketball game every other day and you don’t think, ‘oh let me just have a handful of that caramel corn’, you really don’t think about how much it does add up. You leave there at 11pm and sometimes Lamar and I will go to dinner after – you really have to pay attention.
“I try to eat better later in the day. If I want something sweet or I want a cookie, I will have one instead of eating a whole box of cookies.
“It is definitely hard work, it doesn’t happen over night but as long as you’re consistent, that is the key.”
Denise Richards, who has been looking quite skinny recently, opened up to the press about the fact that she receives a lot of criticism for her skinny frame, when, in fact, she just has a very healthy lifestyle – from Us Weekly:
Denise Richards isn’t wasting away, despite rumors to the contrary. In recent weeks, the Twisted actress has been criticized for supposedly looking “painfully thin” and “extra skinny” by several media outlets, including The Sun, Radar Online, The Daily Mail and E! News. The 42-year-old mother of three defended her athletic build during the Radio Disney Music Awards in L.A. Apr. 27.
“I don’t know why lately I’ve been getting so much flack for it,” Richards told Extra. “I have a very healthy lifestyle and I’m busy.”
The Pilates devotee added, “What bothers me is I have three daughters [Sam, 9, Lola, 7, and Eloise, 22 months]. I’m such an advocate for health and fitness. . . In moderation, we eat ice cream all the time. I had grilled cheese before we got here!”
In fact, at Carbon Audio’s launch party for Zooka in West Hollywood on Aug. 3, 2012, Richards told Us Weekly her girls are healthy eaters by choice. “They actually like to cut up fresh vegetables with ranch dressing on the side. That’s their favorite!” she shared. “They love helping. They like making salads because they like chopping things up and rinsing the lettuce. Nothing too fancy!”

On how it is cruel for her pregnant sister Kim to eat fries when she is dieting:
“Kim ordered just like a big pile of French fries…like a huge tower of fries. She’s sitting between Robert and I and were both working on getting in shape and Rob was seriously like foaming at the mouth. It was so mean, it was definitely cruel.”
… says Khloe, who claims to have lost 25 pounds recently.
78 year-old Sophia Loren had some confusing and not-so-wise advice when she was interviewed last month by OK Magazine on the topic of staying slim and eating:
Diet is everything.
“Be careful about what you eat,” the chic actress tells me in her signature Italian accent. “Eat very, very, very little things. Almost starve, but I don’t starve, because I eat very much.” Hm, why should we starve? “Because otherwise you get fat,” says Sophia. “Do you like to be fat?” Oh no, nobody wants to be fat.
Keep a list of healthy go-to foods.
“I eat a lot of salad, a little meat, and some fruit—that’s all. But I like sweets.”
“Too much bread is not good because you get fat [from the] starch,” she explains. “A lot of starch is no good, but some starch, yes.”
Fitness can work wonders for the image.
“A little exercise, which I never do [is good]. I walk, walk, walk, walk—yeah. That’s very good for your heart.”
“You have to take care of yourself. Eat not very much, relax a little bit, read, look at the sunset—you know, things that please you.”
