Teresa Giudice Reveals Her Meal Prep Before a Big Fitness Competition

We already know how Teresa Giudice dramatically changes her diet when she's in fitness competition training mode — and yes, when she's in the zone, she can kiss that pasta goodbye. But the Italian girl says it's actually easier to live without her beloved pasta than it is to (can you guess?) cut out the wine.

"I miss having a glass of wine with my friends, with my dad, with my brother when I go his house," The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom told us in the clip above.

For his part, Joe Gorga is incredulous. "He’s like, 'Let's have a glass of wine!' I’m like, 'I can’t.' He’s like, 'You’re kidding me, right?!' I'm like, 'No, I really can’t!'"

It does get easier, though. "I haven’t drank now in a while and it’s like... wow. I miss it, but i’m doing it," she said. "So I’m kind of proud of myself. As soon as this competition is over, we’re going to go out and have a few drinks, I'm not so much even worried about food, but I kinda want a drink."

And abstinence does have its perks — in the form of delayed gratification! "I’m sure I’m going to get a buzz after having one drink, so it’s going to feel good," Teresa said. "But right now I'm doing this competition — and just wish me luck, guys!"

Watch Teresa explain her entire fitness-training diet: Hit play on the clip above.
