Unless you are one of the ultra rare metabolism lottery winners who can eat whatever you want and not gain an ounce, you can probably relate to the struggle where the deliciousness of food is constantly waging war on desire to have a good figure.

You'd never know it just by looking at Hilary Duff, but she feels the pain, too. "I'm in the same struggle [others are in] every day," she told Elle.

What is different about Hilary, though, is her outlook on it. "I just tell myself, 'I'm 5'2", I'm really fit, killing it in the gym, and doing crazy things.' I love to work out, but I'm just not that concerned with being the skinniest person," she explains.

She makes it all sound so easy! "I'm not a model; I'm an actress," the 27-year-old continued. "I always feel like I'm in the five to ten pound struggle, but my life is so busy. I'm just not that concerned, really. I'm normal and I'm perfectly happy being that way."

She admits that sometimes if her clothes aren't fitting as well as she'd like them to, she'll start to cut back a little bit, but says she's absolutely not hung up on a number, saying, "I don't fall into the trap of having to be 110 pounds."

We couldn't agree more. We recently adopted the 'how your clothes fit' approach over weighing ourselves every day and it's pretty liberating. The scale has never really MADE our day, but it has ruined quite a few of them, so it's currently filed away under the bathroom counter.
