Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is internationally renowned for her incredible body and suggestive stage routines. And according to the performer, her figure can be put down to a combination of good genes, healthy eating and on occasion cosmetic procedures. Speaking to OK! magazine, Von Teese said choosing the right foods is an important part of staying healthy and keeping in shape. She said sugar is one foodstuff that she has cut out completely by training her body not to crave it.She said: "I do a lot of Pilates and I've trained my body to enjoy things that are healthy. If you stop eating sugar, your body doesn't want sugar anymore. I haven't had a soda in 15 years!" But along with being careful about what she puts into her body, the 39-year-old admitted she has turned to dermal fillers to maintain her youthful looks, although apparently wrinkles are not a problem that runs in her family. Von Teese said: "I've done it maybe twice in the last three years but for the most part I've forgotten I've had it done. The last time was about eight months ago. Wrinkles are not one of my problems - my mom is in her sixties and she looks really young."
