Brooke Burke Covers 'Shape' January 2011
Here’s what the 39-year-old actress and Dancing with the Stars host had to share:
On her personal diet: “I’ve tried just about every crazy diet you can imagine, but now I’ve learned what really works for my body.” Brooke and her family follow a Mediterranean diet, which includes lean grilled beef, chicken, fish (she loves salmon), salads, vegetables, and, of course, olive oil. “I also eat five small meals a day, and I never skip breakfast, even if it’s just a protein shake. I can honestly say that I’ve never been healthier or fitter in my life.”
On date nights with boyfriend David Charvet: “I’ll fess up here. Sometimes we’re so tired, it’s just a glass of wine and a good night’s sleep. But the point is that we’re making a commitment to each other and saying, ‘We love the kids, but we matter too.’ ”
On inner confidence: “There’s something magical about a woman who feels comfortable in her own skin…You can look at a supermodel and, yes, she’s beautiful, but then you meet a woman who just has something special about her, who becomes more attractive as you get to know her. The older a woman gets, the more she can tap into that – at least that’s what I’ve experienced personally. It’s about owning who you are.”
