Kobe Bryant wrote a guest blog for iVillage where he shared his own health and fitness secrets.
"When it comes to healthy living there are certain habits that come naturally to me and others I've had to struggle with and that continue to be a challenge to this day," the basketball star wrote. "Sure I want to live healthy, but I found that just keeping my eye on the healthy goal is not going to get me through a late night craving for sugar cookies."
Bryant admits he has a hard time sticking to healthy foods and has only started paying closer attention to his diet in recent years.
"Lots of veggies, fruits, fish and lean meats. Portions are small and I found myself craving a snack every two hours!!" he said of his new diet. "So I would dig through the pantry searching for anything to munch on to hold me over to the next healthy meal time."
Now, Bryant views his diet a little differently and allows himself the "occasional cookie" every now and then.
