Brooke Burke Charvet talks plastic surgery, diet secrets and cancer scare

Brooke Burke Charvet is no stranger to plastic surgery, having gotten breast implants during her twenties, but said women who go overboard scare her.

"Women who do too much scare me," Burke-Charvet told New You Jan. 31. "I'm glad it scares me. I was married to a plastic surgeon, so I've seen it all. If a woman has done a bit of work, you should never know."

Brooke was married to celebrity plastic surgeon Garth Fisher from 2001 to 2005. She's now married to former "Baywatch" star David Charvet.

Burke Charvet previously revealed she got breast implants during her twenties, and underwent a second plastic surgery years later to get smaller ones.

The 42-year-old Brooke said the true secret to looking and feeling young is a healthy diet and daily exercise. "We try to eat a Mediterranean diet: lots of greens, lots of fish, lots of vegetables," she said.

The mother of four is doing well these days after overcoming a thyroid-cancer scare. Burke-Charvet underwent surgery to remove a benign tumor in her throat in December 2012, and said exercise is her antidepressant.

The "Dancing With the Stars" host said her workouts never exceed an hour, but she gets great results by pumping up the intensity. "I'm totally working out harder than ever before, but I'm doing it in a smarter, quicker way," she said.

Over the years, Brooke has released a line of highly rated fitness videos. She revealed her diet, workout and weight-loss secrets in her best-selling DVD, Brooke Burke Body: 30-Day Slim Down.

As a result of her fitness-minded lifestyle, the super-fit Brooke feels better than ever. "Physically I feel better today than I did in my 30s," she said. "I know my body better, how to dress my body and I have a better sense of style. I am also more experienced."

Brooke revealed how she juggles motherhood, marriage, fitness and a high-powered career in her memoir, The Naked Mom.
