The fallout from that fondue wasn’t pleasant so I won’t be doing it again next weekend. If most women had to choose, I say, they would rather look like Cameron Diaz. ‘Food is your friend and you have to embrace your hunger absolutely – you are going to be hungry for the rest of your life. ” and I say, “I don’t have secrets, this is science.” One of my closest friends was always saying to me, “I can’t eat today, I ate too much yesterday.
