Bethenny Frankel: Natural Chef to the Stars

What do Paris Hilton, Alicia Silverstone and Mariska Hargitay (from TV's Law & Order) all have in common? The answer would be Bethenny Frankel a natural food chef of the stars.

Bethenny believes that a person's diet is like a "bank account." You want to eat a balanced diet, but you don't want to restrict yourself either. It's fine to try a bit of everything. It's when you eat all of everything that can get you into trouble. She healthily believes in moderation.

After watching this video clip, you will know that Bethenny is into healthy bodies and chocolate, but she doesn't have a great opinion of the ultra slim size zero body.

Want to know some healthy tips from celebs like Paris Hilton, Randy Jackson, and Alicia Silverstone? Then

Healthy Tip #1: Don't eat everything on your plate.

Paris and Nicky Hilton try to be as healthy as possible (Bethenny has known them since they were kids). What keeps them so slim is this little trick: they never finish all the food on their plate. Some would say this is wasteful, but overeating is a big problem with people. We often eat more food just because it's in front of us.

Healthy Tip #2: Load Up on Veggies.

Mariska Hargitay loves Mediterranean foods with lots of flavor. Vegetables offer a variety of different tastes and textures, and can be easily flavored with fresh herbs and spices. Veggies are just so healthy for you, you really can't go wrong with them.

Healthy Tip #3: Use Fresh Ingredients for Flavor.

Randy Jackson went through gastric bypass surgery in 2003. He dropped over 100 pounds, and had to change his eating habits to keep up with his new body. He's a huge fan of southern foods, so he uses fresh spices and ingredients to give those foods the flavor he craves.

Healthy Tip #4: Simply Substitute.

The Hogans are an all-American family, loving the types of food you get at fast food joints. In order to eat the high-fat foods they loved, Bethenny would just substitute healthier ingredients. She'd use olive oil instead of butter, and low-sugar maple syrup in place of real sugar. Your taste buds won't notice the difference much, but your body will.

Healthy Tip #5: Don't Be Afraid to Experiment.

Alicia Silverstone is a committed vegan, believing whole-heartedly in not consuming any animal products. When you don't eat meat, dairy products, or eggs, you've got to get a little creative in your meal-making. Alicia wasn't afraid to experiment with new ingredients like tofu, tempeh, and seitan to make mock-foods such as veggie "chicken" burgers.

I know you're putting out a good message (healthy eating + exercise). It just makes me feel like a freak everytime I read some article rallying against "size 0" women, and I think it's a little insensitive. Thanks for the response. Looking forward to more Fitsugar!

puddinpie - I see your point. When I mention Size 0, I am referring to that bony, underweight, tall and ultra-skinny model type. So you're right, underweight is a better term. Most women do not fit into a size 0, even if they are short. I'm just making the point that you shouldn't be so concerned with size - it's how you feel that's important. You want to live a healthy lifestyle, eating foods that are good for you, and exercising to keep your physical body happy. Anyone can agree with that.

I like reading Fitsugar, but I'm getting increasingly irritated about the repeated message that size 0 is unhealthy. Size 0 is usually something like 32-33" bust, 24 or 25 inch waist, and 34" hip. Not unhealthy for people who are naturally slender, or not very tall. I don't doubt that someone who's 5'11" and a size 0 would look unnaturally thin, but for most average-height women, you don't have to be underweight in the least to be a size 0. Why not use the words "underweight" or something? Nicole Ritchie and Lindsay Lohan (at her thinnest) would be swimming in a size 0 outfit. I can fit into a 0 and I must weigh a good 20+ lbs. more than Ms. Ritchie. Sheesh.
