Maria Menounos interviews Hollywood's biggest celebrities as a reporter for "Access Hollywood," "NBC Nightly News," "Dateline" and the "Today" show. While making a career out of talking to A-listers, Menounos has learned how to look like one on a limited budget.

Menounos has just penned the new book "The Every Girl's Guide to Life," in which she offers her advice on how to live a healthier, happier and more balanced life. Menounos shared a few of her diet and fitness strategies exclusively with That's Fit -- and believe it or not, she stays fit without a trainer.

That's Fit: What are your favorite healthy snack tips?

Maria Menounos: My days can be really busy, so when I grab a snack, I want it to work as hard as I am. I want it to give me energy, fill me up [and] fuel my body. I like to grab veggies, like baby carrots or a handful of almonds. I also look for snacks that are high in protein and fat free, like Greek yogurt, which has two times the protein of regular yogurt to help satisfy hunger. Blueberries and apples are amazing, too. I often take apple slices to work with me.

Luckily, I've always liked all of the snacks she mentioned. If anyone dislikes fruits and veggies, I think it's pretty hard for them to lose weight because it means that they usually eat too much processed junk and meat!!!! Report
Have a good attitude, about life. Eat well, keep fit! Report
I like string cheese and some fruit. Report
I sauna and swim after morning coffee and sometimes tread water if the lanes are
too crowded.... for snacks I try for raw food and have a fresh fruit salad available if
I get hungry Report
I love Greek yoghurt with some raisins and bit of honey - it fills you up and it's healthy but at the same time, it doesn't feel like you are depriving yourself. Try it! Report
