New York, August 07 (ANI): Michelle Obama has revealed that she loves eating pie and deep-dish pizza, but makes up for it by exercising plenty and eating a vegetable-rich diet.
"One of the reasons I talk about pie and burgers is because if you tell people they can never have the stuff they love, they'll shut down," the New York Daily News quoted her as telling Ladies' Home Journal.
"What is life without the things you love to eat? For me it's pie."
But to get that famously toned physique, Mrs. Obama exercises daily with her husband, waking up at the crack of dawn.
"Don't think about how you're feeling during the workout. Think about an hour and a half from now, how good you're gonna feel the rest of the day."
Although she sometimes cheats the routine, she makes up for it with an extra-hard workout.
"So, yeah, there are absolutely times when you just don't feel like [exercising]. That's why the times that I do feel like it, I push myself," she added.
Guided by this balanced outlook, the First Lady hopes to encourage other Americans to lead healthier lifestyles.
As part of her "Let's Move" campaign, Mrs. Obama encourages parents to put more fruits and veggies on the plate, limit portion sizes and cut back on TV time. (ANI)
