Skinny mini! Paris Hilton recently slimmed down her already-svelte figure with one simple move. 

"I lost about five pounds just from staying away from the drive-throughs," she told the Daily Mail. "I can feel the difference especially when I'm in a bathing suit."

The famous Carl's Jr. spokesperson, 33, has long been vocal about her love for fast food, but says she is cutting back. "I used to eat that way, but I decided to change things this year," she continued. "Now I don't do that. There are times when I will stop at a Carl's Jr, but I will maybe get a turkey burger or something healthier instead of a cheeseburger and fries. I am more careful now."

Back in the limelight as she works on her DJing and recording career, Hilton added that she has been focusing on her nutrition. "I like green smoothies, they taste good and they make me feel more energetic," she added to the Daily Mail. "I also like regular juices. I get a lot more vitamins these days, more fruits too, more vegetables, more protein, more salads."

While her diet is clearly changing, some things in the famed socialite's life are staying the same. Nicole Richie, her bestie since birth, gave an interview to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live this week, and said that the two remain close. 

"Paris is somebody that's been in my life since day one," Richie said. "An idea of a true friend is somebody that's going to be there with you through and through. The short answer to this is, I haven’t spoken to her in a while, but we are very good friends. I love her and I love her family. I have a lot of respect for her."
