Lauren Conrad: I Don't Love the Gym and I'm No Good at Dieting

07/10/2014 at 01:59 PM ET

While some stars take an extremely disciplined approach to “shedding for the wedding,” Lauren Conrad‘s not sweating it — literally or figuratively.

“I’m not a huge fan of the gym, to be honest,” Conrad told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Malibu Island Spiced Summer Soirée in Miami, where she wore an Aqua dress and made floral leis. “When I have to go to the gym and put an hour in, I’m just staring at the clock”.

The former star of The Hills is also surprisingly easygoing about what she eats. “I really love food … I’m not good at dieting,” she said. “I try to make smart choices but just eat a little bit less.”

But don’t expect to see Conrad in anything but tip-top shape for her upcoming wedding to law student William Tell — she gets her workouts in the California way. “I just like getting out, like going on a hike, going on the kayaks, going for a run on the beach,” she explained.

Conrad also appreciates a healthy cocktail (see: the Truvia-sweetened spiced rum she’s fronting) and she’s been turning her fiancé into a fan as well. Sneakily. “Boys never want sugary drinks, but I feel like with these it’s like slipping your little kid broccoli,” she said. “They don’t know you’re giving them a low-calorie beverage.”

I love that she says she doesn’t go to the gym instead of “I don’t work out”, like a lot of other celebs. At least she’s honest about the fact she does have a fitness regimen, but it just takes place outside.

I am glad LC is honest by admitting that she does not like the gym and loves food — she’s real!

Good Tx Girl on

Ok…so running on the beach, hiking etc is not exercising?

QDPie109 on

She never said she doesn’t like exercise she said she doesn’t like the Gym.

Ale on

Yeah… Right

Susan on

Don’t know much about her, but by her looks, she’s going to be one of those “old women” by the time she’s 45 who will be carrying a brown leather handbag, and you won’t be able to tell the bag from her skin.

Katy on

Glad Lauren is honest about not liking the gym.
