Get the Bod: Vanessa Minnillo

Vanessa Minnillo has not only been known for being Nick Lachey's girl, she's also known for having a hot bod...

Lucky for us, Vanessa recently told InTouch some of her own tricks she uses to keep her eating habits under control:

Slim down your Starbucks. She replaced her fave fattening coffee drink with a Mocha Frappuccino Light. "It's low-fat and has half the sugar," she explains.

Make smart carb choices. Vanessa orders her sushi and burritos with brown rice, which is healthier than white, because it has more nutrients and three times the fiber.

Look at your portion sizes. Change the way you eat, advises the TRL host, who eats four smaller meals a day.

Find a low-cal treat to satisfy sweet cravings. Vanessa loves to snack on sweet Teddy Grahams (15 crackers have just 82 calories).

Pay attention to when you feel full and stop eating. "You don't have to finish the whole buffet or everything on your plate," she says.

I always do that... ask for brown instead of white rice when they make your sushi & I always ask them to not put too much. I like it better that way and it's a bit healthier for you as well!

I've been doing the light ever since I first started drinking Starbucks and I eat brown rice mixed with white for dinner. I didn't know about the Teddy Grahams! So going to try that. But at a buffet or steamboat I tend to go on eating - "don't waste food and money". Especially when it's the really expensive buffets at S$75 per person.
