“I had two Altoids — that counts for the calorie total!” she jokes of a whirlwind day in NYC promoting her gig as the newest member of the Eucerin Skin First Council. “And a bottle of water.”

OUR EXPERT SAYS: On-the-go energy — “Pack a small bag of pistachios or mixed nuts and throw in half an ounce of dark  chocolate.”

Lunch:

FATS 8g CARBS 70g PROTEIN 32g 477 CALS

During lunch at the OK! office, “I had half a chicken bánh mì Vietnamese-style sandwich on a baguette with lettuce, carrots and a mayonnaise based sauce,” says Gail, who nixed the cupcakes.

OUR EXPERT SAYS: Cut calories — “Lighten up by eating the sandwich open-faced and scraping off some of the mayo.”

“Dinner’s the most exciting meal,” says Gail of a special visit to Le Bernardin in NYC. Her “seafood extravaganza” included oysters, a roasted fish with veggies, wine and a caramel pot de crème.

Exercise:

DURATION: 60 MINS CALORIES BURNED: 478

“I run and do the elliptical with sit-ups and push-ups twice a week,” says Gail, who also spins two days a week at SoulCycle.

OVERALL: FATS 79g CARBS 180g PROTEIN 110g 1,484 CALORIES

Gail's Score:B

"Gail is eating lots of real food and a nice proportion of nutrients — lean protein, carbs and fat,” says Keri. “However, the white bread, dessert, wine and skipped snack bring her down to a B. Gail also has a good consistent moderate exercise routine to burn any extra calories. Consistency is key!”
