E! News Host Giuliana Rancic's Top 5 Fitness Tips
E! News host Giuliana Rancic garnered a cult-like Twitter following after responding to fans' questions about beauty, diet and fitness. "I was obsessed with those questions," she says. That's why Giuliana recently launched fabfitfun.com, a website and daily e-mail covering everything from her favorite new beauty products to the healthy snacks she can't live without (she's currently loving Heart Thrives vegan bars).
Giuliana personally tests all of the healthy recipes, beauty tips and workout routines she recommends. "I have an amazing job where I hear about these things first, and it's awesome that I get to share it." Speaking of sharing, Giuliana told us her top five little tricks for staying fit without giving up fun.
Giuliana Rancic Fitness Tip #1: Give Yourself BTN (Better than Nothing) Days
Giuliana works out about six days a week, but only three of those days are for challenging workouts. She may do 45 to 60 minutes of walking and running intervals on the treadmill, in addition to weight training. "The other three days I have a BTN workout-better than nothing. I'll walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes while I am reading and then do 20 minutes of weights."
Giuliana Rancic Fitness Tip #2: Become a Fitness Aficionado
Giuliana doesn't just hit the gym, she hits the books. "I love books on diet and fitness. I go through all of the magazines and I rip stuff out all of the time. I keep everything. I have binders." Giuliana tries out the tips she finds most interesting and incorporates them into her life and now, her website.
Giuliana Rancic Fitness Tip #3: Take Control
Giuliana is the picture of composure when she's interviewing stars on the red carpet, but this self-control didn't always extend to her personal life. After gaining a little weight several years ago, Giuliana turned to a nutritionist to regain control of her diet and sugar cravings. "I swapped out sweets for fruit, and then I slowly weaned off so much fruit." Giuliana curbed her sweet tooth and said goodbye to sugar hangovers.
Giuliana Rancic Fitness Tip #4: Know When to Say When
Giuliana and her Apprentice-winning husband Bill Rancic publicly struggled with fertility on their reality show Guiliana & Bill. But the couple has decided to take a break from making weekly doctor visits their top priority. "The process is daunting, and it's worth it, but after a while, you need a break. It has been amazing, and I feel like I've found myself again." Giuliana has a positive outlook on the possibility of having a baby. "If we do, wonderful. If we don't, we are still in love, we are still family, we will still have a very full life."
Giuliana Rancic Fitness Tip #5: Get Hooked on the Feeling
Giuliana used to turn to the mirror to measure the success of her sweat sessions, but not anymore. "What motivates me more than anything is knowing that how I take care of my body today will determine how I feel tomorrow morning." The day Giuliana started thinking about fitness as a way of life instead of a chore, everything changed, she says. "It isn't about being skinny. It's about feeling good. When I am in shape, I can conquer anything."
