Eat Every Few Hours

Small, frequent meals keep Chelsea's hunger pangs at bay. "I eat every three to four hours," Chelsea told Women's Health. "I always make sure I have something every three to four hours because a nutritionist once taught me it's the best way to control your blood sugar levels."


Don't Eat When You Are Full

Chelsea knows when to stop eating. "I think when you consistently feed your body, you have less of an inclination to [pig out]," she explained to Women's Health. "I like to eat light and I don't overdo it now. When I'm eating, I take my time and pay attention to when I'm full."


Try Intermittent Fasting

Chelsea skips breakfast. "I usually have fresh celery juice first thing in the morning and don't eat anything for a few hours," she told Women's Health about her style of intermittent fasting. "I try and go for as long as I can without eating in the morning." Once a week, she puts off her first meal until 3 or 4 p.m.


Drink A Lot of Water


Chelsea keeps herself hydrated, infusing her water with flavor to make it more enticing. "I have water in my fridge that has lemon, lime, and cucumber," she says. "I'm not a fan of water, so in order to drink it I have to doctor it up. I have to add stuff to make it palatable and it has to be ice-cold; everything I drink has to be ice-cold." 


Don't Drink a Lot of Alcohol

Handler recently told Health that she has dramatically cut down on drinking. "I used to drink all the time," she confessed. "I thought I could handle my alcohol, but I didn't realize how much your body and your life changes when it's not in your life every day. Now I'm not giving up drinking…I would never do that to people—or to alcohol. But it's nice to wake up with clarity and to take a break from the bloat. I didn't think I was bloated until I didn't drink for a few weeks. Then I was like, 'Whoa, look at my cheekbones and my abs.'"


Find a Good Trainer

Handler works out with personal trainer Ben Bruno, "pretty much every day," she told Health. "I just like to feel strong, and now it's part of my mental strength." While she likes to work out with her boyfriend, she isn't a fan of group fitness. "I can't work out in a class. For some reason I can't," she explained to People. "And this probably sounds surprising, but I don't think I'm competitive enough. I just want to give up and be like, I can't I can't do it. There's a pace I don't like."


Find Outdoor Activities You Love

Handler stays active outdoors. Her favorite al fresco activities include skiing and other "extreme sports," she told People. "When I do outdoor stuff, like wakeboarding or paddleboarding, I'm good," she said.
