During an interview with Fitness magazine, the Top Chef host — who is constantly surrounded by food for her job and admits to going up two sizes each season — revealed she works hard for her bod.

Her other healthy habits? “I drink a homemade cleanse of two ounces of pure cranberry juice, six ounces of either green tea or plain water, one Emergen-C Vitamin C packet, and a teaspoon of fiber powder three times a day,” she dished. “I also drink two to three liters of water a day.”
