DWTS' Maria Menounos Stays Slim Doing Cha Cha Cha Along With This
TV personality Maria Menouonos is having a blast on Dancing with the Stars. Last night, the bubbly entertainment reporter teamed up with partner Derek Hough and wowed the audience with the energetic Cha Cha Cha.
Not only were we impressed with Maria's skill on the dance floor, but more amazed with her super fit, toned body.
After watching so many scrawny-looking celebrities on the red carpet, it's refreshing to see a healthy, curvy girl living in Hollywood.
According to Maria Menounos' book, 'The EveryGirl's Guide to Life,' balance is something we all strive for in such a fast-paced way of 24/7.
We find our Greek sister to be down-to-earth with a good head on her shoulders. And we like Maria Menounos because she doesn't pretend to be someone else. The 33-year-old beauty stays fit without a trainer and often does her own hair and makeup for red carpet events.
Of course, dancing is wonderful exercise, and all that Cha Cha Cha-ing will melt away the fat. But diet is also key, and she credits Greek yogurt with keeping her slim and trim:
"I love grabbing a Greek yogurt; it's a convenient, fat-free snack, plus there's 14 to 17 grams of protein in every cup. It's especially great before or after a workout," Maria says.
And she's right----Greek yogurt is all the rage these days. So, we examined an excellent one by Stonyfield Farm, called Oikos.
"Greek yogurt has an incredibly rich and creamy texture, about twice the protein of regular yogurt, less lactose, and fewer carbs. So it’s no wonder Greek is flying off the shelves. Our Oikos Organic Greek Yogurt has 0% fat and just 80 calories per serving.* Because it’s organic, Oikos is also better for the earth. And we think it's better for you too.".
Greek yogurt, is indeed, rich and creamy, a very filling food for those who want a delicious snack that keeps them long and lean.
