DETAILS: You're in really great shape—what's your fitness routine like?
Bill Rancic: I ran seven miles today in Central Park and then lifted weights for about 40 minutes at the Equinox spa in the hotel.
DETAILS: That's intense. Do you keep your diet in check, too?
Bill Rancic: My greatest weakness is sweets. My wife calls me the Cookie Monster because I can just go way overboard with cookies and pastries and cakes. I've eaten an entire pumpkin pie in one sitting.
DETAILS: Wow, you're not kidding. You obviously don't do that regularly.
Bill Rancic: No, now I only eat sweets on one weekend a month—it's like my cheat weekend, and it's not exactly restrained. I really go to town and basically eat everything sugary I can get my hands on. I do have to say that now that I'm off the sugar my face looks better. It's definitely less puffy.
DETAILS: What's your philosophy when it comes to style?
Bill Rancic: I think the most important thing you can do is dress to your age and personality. Don't dress like you're copying someone else, because it just never looks comfortable.
DETAILS: What are some of your favorite brands?
Bill Rancic: I like LNA for their T-shirts, and there's this brand called Moods of Norway that makes these really impressive custom suits—I'm wearing one now, actually. I'm a real creature of habit, so when I find something I like I just stock up on it!
DETAILS: Well, you gotta keep up with your fashionable wife! I know you're sharing hosting duties with Giuliana for a new show this fall. What's working with her been like?
Bill Rancic: Yes, it's called Ready for Love, and it's been nice to work together! The truth is that she doesn't sugarcoat things. I'll think I'm doing well, and she'll just tell me all the things I messed up on, but she's the pro! It can be tough, but she's doing it out of love and for all the right reasons.
