If you're fed up with reading about celebrities who say they stay slim with diets involving an ounce of grapefruit and a hard-boiled egg or a personal trainer, be prepared to fall in love with chocolate-lover Blake Lively. The slender actress credits her sleek physique to a delicious diet secret: Chocolate every day, reported Us Weekly recently.

"I can't start my day without a cup of hot milk chocolate or finish without crunching a few dark chocolate squares. It's good for my morale," she explained.

And studies show that Blake is on the right track: Eating a small amount of chocolate boosts weight loss, say researchers: Read the delicious news by clicking here.

"I'm lucky to have an active lifestyle," Blake added. "I'm always on the go. I don't need to have a [trainer] or pay attention to what I eat."

As for specific exercise? Well, she does have a dog - but Blake says that her pup doesn't give her much of a workout.

"I could lie and put it down to dog walking, but you would be well within your rights to call my bluff: my dog weighs three pounds. I take six steps and she's done for," joked Blake.

But she does recognize that her luck won't last forever. "

In a few more years, I'll need to have a new secret, as in an incredibly strict diet regime," she added.

We're betting that she'll find one that includes chocolate.
