April 21, 2011 02:30 PM by Candace Young

Jillian Harris of Extreme Makeover Home Edition is not only a terrific designer, she’s a healthy beauty as well. Jillian recently spoke out about her eating and exercise habits in her busy life. Keep reading to hear what she had to say, and also for a little dating wisdom from the ex-Bachelorette

In a recent interview with OK Magazine, Jillian confessed that she is lucky enough to have a palate that prefers healthy foods, saying, “I love food that’s good for me. I love fish. I love vegetables. I love fruit. I love tomatoes.”

She spoke out about people holding themselves to unachievable standards when it comes to eating habits, saying if you give in to a craving for fast food, just try to get back on track with healthy eating the next day. She added, “If you can force yourself to love the superfoods – blueberries, almonds, broccoli, fish and tuna – I think you’re going to be in a better place. Drink lots of water. It’s the usual. We’ve gotta take care of ourselves.”

What about her fitness regime? She admits it has its ups and downs, confessing, “I always workout to the point where I feel good about myself, then I stop working out, and then I go again.”

As for her take on love, Jillian told the magazine back in February that she’s decided the best advice is to be laid back and have no rules, explaining, “I’ve always said ‘I’m looking for my best friend,’ so I continue to look for that. But I think not having any specific rules. I think having no rules, and there are so many different relationships and types of relationships out there, I think we all think it needs to be a white picket fence and we need to get married and we need to do this. But not every family is like that. There’s broken families, there’s gay and lesbian families, there’s single families. There’s all kinds of families, so whatever life hands you, you embrace it. I think that’s how I will approach relationships in the future.”
