She Started The Year Off Clean

She revealed in her latest Instagram post that she has been on a new eating program all throughout January, and that she is seeing results. She wrote, "I'm not sure why I'm so serious here, but maybe it's because I've been on a January cleanse/detox & I'm seeing serious sleep, skin and spiritual benefits."

Frankel tells Shape that one of her secrets to staying thin is eating a variety of food each day.  "It's different every single day. That's the key to being naturally thin — not being so regimented."


She Spreads Out Her Indulgences

Frankel tells Shape that she isn't afraid to indulge, she just makes sure that she doesn't indulge too much. She says that she will indulge in one meal, then eat healthy at another. "If you have something in the morning that is not ideal, then have something at lunch that is more ideal. It's a better investment, and you balance it throughout the day so you end up having everything you want — just not all at once."


She Makes Healthy Cocktails

It's no surprise that a former Real Housewife and the founder of a liquor brand isn't afraid to enjoy cocktails. However, Frankel tells Shape that she makes healthy alternatives to traditional cocktails. "You can take a flavor vodka, like a fruity flavor vodka, with club soda and then a little splash of your favorite juice and then pick either a lemon, a lime, or an orange to make it a whole fun thing," she says. Frankel's brand SkinnyGirl, is all about creating healthier alcohol. 


She Switches Up Her Workouts

Frankel revealed some of her favorite ways to exercise in a 2019 Instagram post. She says that her favorite workouts change depending on her environment,  and what she's in the mood for that day. "If I'm near a beach, I take an hour walk. If I have the time, I'll do a yoga DVD. I don't believe in fear based, torturous, aggressive exercise."
