Giada

I have no idea how it has already been a week since my last post.
These last summer days fly by don't they?

I have an observation that my Grandma made today about the beautiful Giada De Laurentiis...
How does she stay so skinny while cooking all the time? I would love to know her secrets wouldn't you? I know that not all the other food network hosts have the same luck.

Someone ask her that once in an interview and she said that when she cooks she just watches her portions and takes small bites here and there instead of eating huge amounts. I've always heard the saying Never trust a skinny cook, but I call that a myth with her recipes because they are good!

Her food is so decadent! I assume she eats completely different (read: super healthy) at home most of the time.

Thats probably bc what you see her eat is ALL she eats! lol Another thing about her...she is always in low cut shirts lol. Cleavage anyone?

She is beautiful, but I get so sick of her "sometimes" accent, and those BOOBS!! Good Lord, that's all you can see when she's cooking. I'm sure she has a huge male fan base though!

I read an interview with her once where she said she takes small portions. While this makes sense, of course, when asked what the sizes are like, she answered, "Well, if it's something really filling, like pasta, I eat three bites and then I find I don't need anymore!".

I get the small portion thing, but three bites of pasta does not a meal make!! lol. :)

She is very, very small. Very short. I saw her at a book signing once and ever since then I can't watch her show without being creeped out by her tiny hands. I agree that she probably only eats her own food for the show. That and she probably has a personal trainer on permanent staff.

I have a cookbook by Katie Lee Joel and Paula Deen wrote the foreward. Paula talks about how she is wary of skinny cooks, but loves KLJ. I'm jealous that they can both look fantastic while cooking amazing meals!

uhm yeah when you find out her secret let me know! ha..ha!!! She looks great, she must wear spanx or something!

In addition to the small portion sizes, she responded once in an interview that she works out EVERY morning without fail. I think she said she does a treadmill workout and loves pilates.

I do a treadmill workout almost everyday and am nowhere near looking like her!
