Drew Barrymore Can't Eat Everything She Wants

Drew Barrymore Can't Eat Everything She Wants

I love Drew Barrymore. From ET to Charlie's Angels I think she is down right adorable.

Drew recently told Harper's Bazaar:

"I am constantly battling my weight. I want to eat whatever I want and get away with it, but I can't. I want to wear whatever I want but I can't."

Can you relate? I sure can and I appreciate her honesty. That is why we sometime need tools and guidelines. The rich and famous have trainers, but the rest of us find our motivation and tips elsewhere. A tip from Drew - it comes down to portion control, not deprivation.

She dropped 20 pounds a few years back and has kept it off - right on. She works out primarily by running (not always naked in a field in Ireland, though). She does some yoga occasionally, but finds it is better to keep her emotions bottled up so she can channel them into her work.

To find out how many calories you can eat in a day and to maintain your weight, check out the Fit Calculator. It can help provide some of those needed tips for fitness and health.

Drew is awesome, I've heard her say this before and I think it's great to be a true role model and not starve yourself to be skinny or say yeah I eat whatever I want and I never work out.

^Yes, I agree. Food is one of the best pleasures in life! Why waste it eating "diet foods" (lean meats and veg) all the time? It's perfectly fine to have dessert and all that "bad" stuff a few times a week as long as you exercise!

That's a very human answer coming from a celebrity. I really like that Drew emphasizes portion control. Food isn't the enemy, only when you're not burning off what you're eating.

She looks so pretty here. I feel her though I'm constantly battling my weight and it fluctuates a lot.

Love Drew! She's extremely talented and so down to earth. She seems like such a "real" person.

See, when she says she has to constantly battle her weight, I believe her. When Gwen Stefani, I totally don't, since she's never been anything but slender to me.
