Actor Diana Penty is a former athlete, so fitness has always been her priority. But the 33-year-old never stops from eating what she wants. Here she doles out the secret to her envious figure.

Which is the one breakfast food that you must have?

A cup of tea as soon as I wake up, followed by eggs.

One fattening food item that you just can’t resist?

French fries and chocolate. I can’t help having these.

How do you get back in shape post a fattening indulgence?

I stay off sugar and processed foods for a few weeks. I also increase cardio workouts, which usually, for me, is in the form of dance.

Do you prefer mini meals? What do they normally contain?

I have a huge appetite. I can eat enough for three people. So for me, eating small meals through the day is key. It keeps me full, at the same time it doesn’t make me lethargic.

A diet that works for you?

I have never been on one. But what I do, is eat healthy and in moderation.

Do you work out at home? What are the exercises you follow?

I do mat or take floor Pilates class at home. I also take dance lessons at home.

A health tip that you rely on.

I don’t believe in extreme diets. For me, staying away from sugar and processed foods, eating home-cooked meals and exercising regularly is the key.
