London, Dec 16 IANS | 1 year ago

Designer Karl Lagerfeld hates to exercise and he finds it easier to stay slim by cutting fat out of his diet.


He lost oodles of weight ten years ago after switching to a strict diet of steamed vegetables and Diet Coke and had said he would not go back to being on the heavier side of the weighing scale.

"No cheese, no butter, nothing. But I'm perfectly happy with that. My chefs are great, so it tastes beautiful," he told instyle.com.

"People who are obsessed with exercise, they are brainwashed. It is a bore. People exercise because they eat a lot. I don't eat that much so I don't have a lot to get rid of," Lagerfeld said.

When it comes to relaxing, he does not like to travel.

"It is not an adventure anymore. Everything is made to the taste of the tourist. I am not a holiday person. I prepare the collections; I read. I am not on a boat in the sun," he said.
