Melbourne, Sept 30 (ANI): Michelle Obama says she's in the best shape ever, but admits she works really hard to stay in shape.

The Daily Telegraph reports, the 45-year-old tells Prevention magazine in its November issue: "I try to have no absolute no's.

"I love French fries, I like a good burger, and I like pie. And that's okay. I would be depressed if I felt I could never eat the things that I love.

"There are some great bakers [in the White House kitchen].

"If you like pie, it will be there always - at every meal. So for me, it's about setting up new boundaries. I had some challenges with that, but I'm balancing out."

And when it comes to those famously buff arms, the US First Lady says: "I enjoy arm exercises because you can see what it's hitting.

"I've had more time [to work out] as my kids have gotten older. There was a period, actually right before the campaign started up, that I was really in tip-top shape. I was really there. And then my husband ran for president.

"I also don't want my girls to be obsessed about food.

"We don't have a 'no junk food' rule - I just want them to think about their choices. When my older daughter asks, 'Can I have pie?' I'll say, 'Did you have it yesterday? Well, what do you think?' And she'll come to the conclusion that, 'You know, you're right, I shouldn't eat pie every night.'" (ANI)
