How Hilary Duff Gets in Bikini Body Shape for Summer

Hilary Duff knows that it takes more than just a couple treadmill sessions to stay in bikini-ready shape! The "Younger" actress opened up in a recent interview about how she likes to slim down and trim down for summer -- and it takes way more work than you think.

"For me, it's a matter of controlling my diet, and drinking, and going out to dinner. If I'm really trying to kick into gear, that stuff has to go bye-bye for awhile," Duff said.

Before adding, "But that's not fun, and I want to have fun during the summer."

The 28-year-old star says she hasn't been the best this year about sticking to her diet and workout plans because she wanted to spend as much time with her son, Luca, before she headed back to work in New York City.

And to that we say, it sounds like you've got your priorities straight, Hilary!
