Gail Simmons Reveals Diet Secrets

May 13, 2012

Gail Simmons spends a good portion of her day sampling food, so she makes an extra effort to ensure she follows a healthy diet and workout regimen. Simmons follows a mostly vegetarian diet and watches her portion sizes. 

"When I'm cooking for myself, I find that I eat almost completely vegetarian, although I'm not vegetarian," the Top Chef judge said. "So I make a lot of vegetable soups and stews, and a lot of whole grains like barley, quinoa and brown rice. I also make a lot of salads. A salad could be a million things -- I try to use lots of different vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and seeds."

Simmons also ensures to workout at least three times a week, which involves a combination of running and spinning. 

"I run a solid 4-6 miles at a time, and over the last two years I've gotten really into SoulCycle," Simmons said. "It's sort of an evolved form of spinning. Because I travel so much, I bring my own workout clothes and shoes wherever I go. That way I can always do some exercise."
