It's been eight years since Tara Lipinski won the Olympic gold medal in figure skating, but she still watches her figure…until cookie pie is involved. Then it's game over.

Last month Tara did a food diary for People Magazine and clocked in her total calories for the day at 1,228. She caught some heat for sticking to such a low calorie intake, but we know that even a well-disciplined former Olympic athlete has got to live a little. Watch the video to see Tara speak candidly about her "strict" 1,200-calorie diet as she leaves Craig's in West Hollywood.
