Giuliana Rancic may have been the subject of scrutiny for her rail-thin figure in the past, but after beating breast cancer, the E! host and reality star has decided that maintaining a slim silhouette is no longer her top priority.
In a new interview with HuffPost Live, Giuliana reveals that her diagnosis helped her reevaluate her entire life, including her restrictive diet and parameters of beauty.
"What's so funny is I've changed [my life] drastically, the way I live and what I eat and how I exercise, but the opposite way you would think," Giuliana admits. "Before I got the breast cancer I was actually pretty diligent about my diet and what I ate and I tried to eat very healthy foods and whole grains and tried to exercise every day."
She adds, “I think you go one of two ways. Some people, I believe it was Christina Applegate who said that she became very diligent about her health afterwards ... I actually kinda went the other way. On my way here I ate a sandwich in the car; I eat lots of bread and different things and I don't exercise as much."
As for her new philosophy, she says, “Life is to be enjoyed, not to be spent in the gym every day and not to be counting your calories… I kind of eat whatever I want and do whatever I want."
While initially dealing with her diagnosis wasn’t easy, Giuliana says she’s happy to be a role model for other women who she might inspire to get checked for breast cancer.
“Going public, I thought about ... will the first thing people read about me be, 'cancer survivor,' and now, two years in, I think to myself, 'You know what? Great!’... I’m proud of it."
