Water and fruit diet

Does Princess Beatrice's yo-yo figure know no bounds?
The 22-year-old, who has struggled with her weight in the past, turned more than a few heads this weekend with her incredibly svelte figure, which appears to have shrunk further than ever.
Beatrice, who shed 2st before last year’s London Marathon, showed off her even slimmer frame as she attended a polo event at Cowdray Park in West Sussex wearing a short blue belted cocktail dress.
It was a dramatic contrast with a larger frock of similar hue she wore two years ago.

She now looks at least two sizes smaller, and credits a fitness regime based on exercise, lots of water and plenty of fruit and vegetables, with keeping the weight off.
It’s a far cry from the less-than-flattering photographs taken of the princess in a bikini on the beach in St Barts in 2008.
Speaking about the pictures, she said at the time: 'I could probably do with losing the odd pound though, so perhaps it's the kick I need.
'It was such an unflattering bikini and I've got one that's so much nicer, so I could have kicked myself for wearing it.
'I thought people were a bit mean, although I know it comes with the territory.
'The trouble is, I don't have much confidence so it can be quite upsetting.'

Inspired: It was the unflattering pictures of the princess on a beach in St Barts that spurred her on to lose two stone and run the London Marathon as part of a charity team tied together
There has been no let up this year for the princess, who took part in the Windsor half marathon in September.
She managed to complete the run in a very respectable two hours and 16 minutes.
Then, in April she completed the London Marathon with her American boyfriend David Clark as part of a charity team tied together.
They formed a human caterpillar of 34 people who ran the 26.2mile course together along with Sir Richard Branson's two children Sam and Holly.

My DD knows fruit and veg as snacks2011-08-11 13:49:21 by breastfeedingmom2
When we talk snacks, it's a choice of different kinds of fruits or veg and not chips, crackers, cookies, etc.
She drinks healthy juices, water, coconut water/milk and even cows milk.
Her diet is SOOOO much better than mine. I'm working on having a better diet, but it's tough. I wanted her to have a good food habit and not eat like her Mom. :-)
