We caught up with the dance pro to get her top diet tips, and we have to say, we were surprised to hear that Ksenia is a self-confessed chocaholic who loves her food and has to work hard to stay trim. To put it simply: if you're a foodie, you gotta work the booty!
"I love food and I think it's a happy balance. You have to keep so if you enjoy food, you have to work your ass off!"
Clearly, Ksenia is a pro at keeping the balance right as she looks unbelievable week after week on the show. The dancer says that knowing your own body, is key to a healthy lifestyle.

Watch Ksenia on Dancing with the Stars every Sunday on RTÉ One at 6:30 pm.
