Maria Menounos, Health Magazine


Maria Menounos is showing off her seriously toned bod in a sizzling retro bikini on the cover of Health's July/August issue. In the mag, available on newsstands June 20, the 36-year-old opened up on all things health and fitness—including her celeb fitness crush.  

"I never look at anybody's body and think, Oh my God, I hate her," Menounos revealed.  "What I do is admire. Jessica Biel, for example, is so strong, and I would really love to be stronger like her. That inspires me to want to lift a few weights."

And while we think the Dancing With the Stars alum is the picture of ultra-fit femininity, she's got her own perception of her rock hard bod. "I'm a 12-year-old boy... I really just am a boy with boobs."

As for her main diet tip, Maria  revealed it's all a matter of tricking yourself into thinking you're not dieting. "I never told anybody I was on a diet," Menounos shared. "I didn't tell myself!

After the initial trick, Menounos pegged her chief weight-gain culprit—carbs, what else?—and then cut back without eliminating them entirely. "I made a 10 percent rule in my head: If I was eating seven slices of pizza, I would cut back to six… I was still eating what I wanted, just one less."

A diet where you can eat pizza? Consider us sold.
