Hilary Duff on the cover of Us Weekly

Hilary Duff looks so good that she was chosen for the cover of Us

hard-core diet and exercise binge. " would beat myself up if I had some

But when the 5-foot-2 star's weight plummeted to around 100 pounds in
2005 (down from 130 in 2003), her sister Haylie, 22, finally intervened.

"she said, ��Why are you being so strict with yourself?'It was like an
awakening," says Duff, who eased up on her rigorous program.

"I don��t want to be so skinny that people are like, Oh my god, she's
lost a lot of weight."

Now, at 19, Duff tells Us that she's content at 109 pounds. "As you get
older, you just get more comfortable in your own skin."

Instead of counting fat grams or calories, she relies on a hearty helping
of common sense: lots of greens, lean protein and fresh fruit.

"You need to find balance,"she says.
