Amanda Seyfried’s Diet Philosophy: ‘If I Want To Eat It, I’m Going To Eat It’

When it comes to indulging during the holidays, Amanda Seyfried has the right idea.

“If I want to eat it, I’m going to eat it. Life is short,” the actress said at the 19th Annual ACRIA Holiday Dinner in New York City on Wednesday night. “[But] I have a steady workout regime.”

So how does Seyfried stay in amazing shape and still eat what she wants? “I’m into ballet. Hot yoga, not Bikram. You sweat, you move and it’s really good for your limbs, joints and muscles.”

And with her busy schedule, the star keeps a consistent — but not crazy — fitness schedule. “I’ve been traveling so much,” she said. “I’ll work out maybe twice, three times a week.”

Oh please. I’m sure she eats a treat every once in awhile but she has said before that she didn’t start getting work until she lost weight and that she basically eats kale to stay thin enough to be an actress. I respected her for being honest before, not now. Now she’s lyimg like the rest of them, eh.

@ Nicole
Agree with you. It was nice to see Kate Hudson admit she counts calories on My Fitness Pal. Most people can not eat whatever they want, not exercise and remain then.

That’s all nice Amanda, but how long can you keep up with it. I’ve lost 21lbs with the Loaded Gun Diet, but it worked just becuse I eat whatever I want, so I don’t change my lifestyle too much.
