Healthy Lifestyle

Hochstein says her healthy lifestyle is how she keeps fit and happy. "So many people ask me how I keep myself in such good shape," she says. "But working out and eating good is really it … and a lot of people don't understand that concept… I try to work out four days a week. I work on my abs and calves every day, because I just feel like that is a smaller muscle group and it never gets too bulky.


Pilates and Dance

Hochstein credits Pilates and dance with keeping her lean over the years. "I want that slender, toned, lean look," she says. "I also incorporate squats and pilates from my dance background. I stand on my toes a lot because it builds my calves. And I love to do Pilates because I do them on my own at home and you don't have to use a machine."


Early Workouts

Hochstein prefers early workouts and avoids processed foods. "I like to get my workout done in the morning, and then I'll have a protein shake with either banana or peanut butter — I use water instead of milk," she says. "Lunch will be a salad with chicken and maybe some brown rice or a baked potato. For snacks in the afternoon, it's a fruit salad, half a sandwich or a whole-wheat wrap with low-fat tuna or turkey breast."

Hochstein enjoys healthy versions of typically indulgent meals. "For dinner I will either make something or we will order something, but always healthy, always on whole wheat bread, not white," she says. "Or we do whole wheat pasta with turkey meatballs instead of regular. You can still have all of your favorite things and just switch things around and not feel like you are missing out, so you still look forward to your meals."


Open About Augmentation


Hochstein is open about her cosmetic surgery, insisting it is nothing to hide. "I want to remove the stigma, because everything thinks I've had head-to-toe plastic surgery and that's not the case at all," she says. "I had a breast augmentation that my husband did correct, and I actually had to convince him to do it. And I had a rhinoplasty, which was so minor my friends didn't even notice. It was something I didn't like about myself. I feel like if you're not hurting anyone, why shouldn't you change it?"
