Maria Menounos looks like one of those celebrities who rely on strict diets and personal trainers to stay fit and fabulous. However, she told E News in a recent interview, she doesn't believe in dieting and rarely hits the gym.
“My secret is always be moving, that’s it,” she declared. “I’m definitely someone who’s always running around, taking the stairs. Like today, we were at the Universal theme park and there was this enormous, endless set of stairs to get to the top of the mountain, and I’m like ‘Let’s take the stairs instead of the escalator’, running up full speed, and I wear one of those things (pedometers) that calculates how many steps you take, so my goal is 10,000 steps a day.”
Maria doesn't try to obsessively count every calorie and bite.
