Kirstie Alley has long struggled with her weight but after years of making lifestyle changes, she’s since lost weight. Now she just tries her best to maintain her body by eating well and following her fitness regimen. When it comes to her diet plan, the actress said she doesn’t follow any dieting regimen. “I can have anything I want, I’m just counting the calories. I know how many calories 6 oz. of tenderloin is,” said the actress.
“I know that pasta is 200 calories in a cup. So as long as I keep steady that way, and count it up, it’s easy to count because I know how many calories those foods that I really love are.” Also, she shared how she doesn’t eat anything after 7pm.
