Bethenny Frankel lets her fans know how she keeps in shape, and her secret may surprise you. Though Frankel is widely known as a television star, businesswoman, and author, her weight often seems to have been the subject of debate over the years. During an interview on the Today show, the The Real Housewives of New York City graduate revealed that she’s often criticized for looking too skinny. “People comment a lot. Yes, I’m skinny,” Frankel said (via ET). While she admitted that it’s impossible to make everyone happy, she made it clear that she’s not underweight. “There are nutritionists who comment that I don’t even weigh a hundred pounds — I weigh 115 pounds,” she added.
And this isn’t the first time Frankel has dealt with online trolls. According to Us Weekly, in 2014, the “Naturally Thin” writer received a slew of backlash after she shared a photo of herself fitting into her 4-year-old daughter’s pajamas. What started as a harmless joke turned into a discussion about self-image. Meanwhile, Frankel returned with a playful reply. “If your 4-year-old peanut says ‘mommy please put my dress on’ and giggles uncontrollably, you do what you say,” she reportedly wrote.
After years of criticism, it seems online users are now keen to know how Frankel takes care of her body.
Bethenny Frankel admits she doesn’t play sports
Bethenny Frankel informs her fans that the best way to stay in shape is simple – sleep and find a balance. The former talk show host shared a video on TikTok in response to one of her followers inquiring about how she’s dealing with her slim figure. “I don’t train. I do what I can when I can,” Frankel confessed to her nearly 900,000 followers. Although she noted that she occasionally tries to partake in outdoor activities like surfing, snowboarding, and strolling on the beach, there’s a part of her routine that’s more important than getting some fresh air.
“I choose sleep first. Sleep is the number one priority and being happy is the number one priority,” Frankel said. Aside from getting a good night’s sleep, finding the right balance is very important when it comes to diet and exercise. “I eat whatever I want and I’ve never snapped,” revealed the best-selling author. “I believe in life, I believe in fries, I believe in alcohol and I believe in not being crazy.” In the video and caption, she referred to this as the “zero f**ks lifestyle.”
While Frankel’s advice was honest, the response to it was equally divided. “We are all genetically different. What works for one may not work for another,” commented one TikTok user. “Food culture has just skewed our perception of food and what it means to be healthy,” wrote another.
