Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel’s second best-selling book, The Skinnygirl Dish, offers these five easy stay-slim tips:

1 EAT A LOT — OF THE RIGHT FOODS

Forget having huge portions of fatty foods. “Just have a little of the good stuff,” Bethenny says, “and fill up on high-volume vegetables, soups and grains.”

2 STOP WHEN YOU’RE FULL

3 SIP LIGHTER COCKTAILS

If you usually drink rum and Coke, try drinking rum and soda with a splash of Coke — and remember to stick to clear liquids when possible.

4 MAKE SIMPLE SWAPS TO CUT CALS

“When baking, if I see a recipe that takes 4 eggs, I’ll always try it with 2 eggs and 2 egg whites,” Bethenny explains. She also always uses dark instead of milk chocolate.

5 ADD ANTIOXIDANTS

When possible, add a few teaspoons of beet or carrot juice to your recipes. Fresh or dried fruit — such as blueberries, cranberries or raisins — works well too!
