What's Taraji P. Henson's secret to staying slim?

Having just a few bites of her favorite treats -- and then cutting herself off.

"I love food, so I just try to eat as few calories as I can," the Curious Case of Benjamin Button actress told UsMagazine.com at the InStyle/DIC Diamond Fashion Show preview Thursday in Los Angeles.

"Sometimes I can't help it. I'll have that slice of cheesecake and work out extra hard the next day," says Henson, who occasionally enlists the help of L.A.-based trainer Chariesse Griffin.

From the beach to the gym, find out where stars love to slim down.

"I only work out with her when I'm training for something specifically, or if I need to bulk up," Henson tells Us. "Other than that, I know what to do to stay in shape."

Henson's next film, a remake of The Karate Kid, hits theaters in June.
