The 5-foot-3 Hewitt, 31, who recently shed an estimated 15-plus pounds, told Us, "I try to work out three or four times a week and eat healthy and that's about it."

On Tuesday, she released her new romance book The Day I Shot Cupid, which makes her "super excited," she told Us. "It's a book about love, dating, relationships and men and women and where we are."

She said writing the book even helped her deal with her recent split from Kennedy, 39.
