Her most shocking reveal was her declaration that she doesn't exercise — at least not in the formal sense.
"I do what I can, when I can," explained the Bravo alum, 51. "I’ll snowboard if I can, I’ll surf if I can. I’ll walk on the beach whenever I can, but I choose sleep first. Sleep is the number one priority and being happy is the number one priority."
The reality star noted she was "probably 20 lbs." heavier during her 30s, which is when she was actually sticking to a clean diet, but she ended up seeing better results when she followed an 'everything in moderation' lifestyle. Frankel's realization is something she discusses heavily in her book Naturally Thin.
"I eat what I want but I don’t ever binge. I don’t workout and I don’t do weights," the RHONY fan-favorite stated. "I believe in balance. I believe in sleep, I believe in living, I believe in french fries, I believe in alcohol."
The Skinnygirl founder pointed out that you can't survive with a "crazy" mindset, such as participating in boot camp classes or doing "fear-based exercise."
"I don't believe in any of that s**t. I believe in living life. The crazier you get, the worse it gets for you. And as you get older, you realize the zero f**ks lifestyle works better. That's my true and honest answer," Frankel concluded. "If you are shackled and imprisoned by dieting and worrying about that stuff, you'll be miserable, so choose happiness."
