So how does the model-turned-foodie lose the weight in the off-season? “I follow a clean diet,” she told Fitness Magazine. “No meats, no sweets, no alcohol, no cheese, no fried food, no what.” Oh, and working out five days a week also doesn’t hurt.

Why Lilly Ghalichi Ended Her Engagement

The former 'Shahs of Sunset' star reveals she's split from her fiance of eight months.

After saying "yes" back in April, former Shahs of Sunset star Lilly Ghalichi star is now saying no.

The stylish Shah revealed on Instagram that she's called off her engagement to boyfriend Dhar Mann. "I want to take a moment to say that I have in fact ended my relationship with my fiance," she wrote Thursday. "He is a great man, and I wish him the best in life."

What went wrong between the pair? Lilly explained that sometimes things aren't meant to be. "Relationships are hard, very hard, and more often than not, they don't work," she wrote. "As much as my heart hurts right now, I know that every ending is a new beginning. Rather than commenting speculations and demanding information, we would both appreciate some personal space from our fans on the matter so that our hearts can heal."

Lilly and Dhar got engaged after two months of dating back in the spring. Despite the break, Lilly had kind words for her former fiance.

"After being with someone that lied to and cheated on me, it was so nice to be with someone as honest and loving as he was," she continued in her statement. "For the first time in my life, I truly felt loved, appreciated, and respected. I will forever cherish our time together for those reasons, and so many more."

Back in April, when she announced her engagement on social media, she posted the news on Instagram including an equally heartfelt message, later revealing her plans to have two weddings.

"For those of you that think it's an April fools joke, so did I at first when he got on one knee!!" she said. "That was his whole plan, he's so funny, romantic and crazy like that. [My ring] is so perfect, I am the luckiest girl in the world."
