Serena Williams Comes Clean About Her Diet Dilemmas

The tennis star reveals her diet weaknesses

Serena Williams is a fitness pro, but that doesn't mean she always sticks to a strict diet. The tennis champ admits that she sometimes has a hard time eating healthy.

"I love Southern food. I don't try to eat healthy when I'm in South Carolina for the Family Circle Cup tournament," she told Fitness magazine. "I eat shrimp and grits with butter on top, fried chicken, and, oh, do I eat the fried hush puppies! And the banana pudding -- mmm, mmm, mmm! I let myself go that whole week and then another week after that."

So what does she do to make up for it? Well, she just doesn't tempt herself with cheat days. Because they become cheat months. For Serena, "diet is a bad word. I always say it's a lifestyle change, because if you call it that, you won't want those fried hush puppies. Clearly I haven't completed my lifestyle change! But I'm trying, I'm really trying."

But in order to eat healthy, she says, you have to feel good about your body first. And that's a mental thing, not a physical thing. "I learned to be proud of my curves and to embrace my large boobs and my butt. It's all about loving who you are and realizing that you're beautiful." [Fitness]
