Extra host Maria Menounos has been open about her past battle with weight loss, going from a size 14 down to a size 4 after college. Ever since she's maintained her slim figure with running, circuit workouts, and playing basketball. Menounos also recently took up Krav Maga, an Israeli martial art, for self-defense purposes before a trip to Iraq. “I found it’s the best overall workout I've ever experienced,” she told Fitness Magazine. “It's cardio. It's strength. It's reflexes. It's everything.”
When it comes to dieting, Menounos relies on portion control to stay at her fighting weight. “I definitely don’t deprive myself. I eat whatever I want but in smaller portions,” she said in an interview on the Today show.
