Shahs of Sunset Star Lilly Ghalichi — How Does the “Persian Barbie” Stay Fit?
There's no denying that Shahs of Sunset star Lilly Ghalichi always looks fabulous. But you might be surprised to learn what she does to stay in such enviable shape.
Lilly, known as the "Persian Barbie," tells Examiner that she is blessed with good genes and that she loves eating sugar, not to mention deep-fried treats.
"I am very lucky in that I am genetically blessed in this department," Lilly says. "God gives us each something great — maybe beautiful eyes, great lips, gorgeous hair — whatever it may be, I definitely got skinny genes! Being naturally thin is a great help in staying fit. I know how much of a struggle it is for those that have to work twice as hard due to genetics, and I respect their hustle."
"Diet is my one weakness," she adds. "I can’t do it. I’ve tried to drop sugar. I’ve tried to quit eating certain carbs or fried foods — it’s so hard! I’ll have to go back to thanking genetics for this one. I pretty much eat whatever I want." What, us bitter?
However, there are times when she has to watch what she eats. "With that said, diet is the No. 1 factor in how my body looks," she adds. "If [I] eat poorly, it shows, and if I eat clean, it shows as well. When I have a big shoot coming up, or something I need to look my best for, I do try to be a bit stricter with my diet. This includes lowering my sugar intake, cutting my salt intake, and trying to avoid carbs after 8 p.m."
Long story short: We are super jealous that Lilly looks amazing and still eats her favorite things!
