Hilary Duff reveals how she lost weight while enjoying bread, chocolate and wine

ABC/Richard Harbaugh(LOS ANGELES) -- Hilary Duff may have a toned beach bod, but the Lizzie McGuire star attests that she has been eating her way through quarantine.  

Saying she's been able to indulge in her favorites like chocolate and wine, Duff took to Instagram on Tuesday to show off her fantastic physique and discuss how she found balance.

Posing in a strapless bikini, the 32-year-old revealed how she was able to obtain her enviable figure, "I’ve still been counting my macros with my man @theflexible.dieting.coach and it’s truly helped me stay lean even while eating bread, chocolate, and wine!"

Duff revealed that slimming down during quarantine was due to trial and error, revealing she is working with a fitness studio alongside a nutrition coach.

Shouting out Novo Body Fitness, which also offers online workouts, the Younger star said that she is "grateful I have found what works for me."

Duff then offered advice to her fans who might also be struggling with weight loss, encouraging, " I know it’s extra hard to keep up and find normalcy in quarantine but I truly hope you make at least 30 mins a day for yourself to stay connected."

The "So Yesterday" singer also reminded her 15.3 million followers that mental health is equally as important as nutrition by concluding, "do whatever feels good for you even if it’s not food or fitness related."

Duff's nutrition coach Erik Young shared her post on Instagram and further elaborated on what kind of diet he created for his client, writing that she is on a non-restrictive weight loss plan that allows her to eat whatever she likes as long as she minds her macros. 

He also added to that Duff consumes 1,500 calories a day to stay lean.
