Fight the Sugar with a Little Help from Miss Universe

Olivia Culpo shared her pageant-worthy snacks with Shape magazine.

But we’ve got a voice of reason in our locally grown Miss Universe, Olivia Culpo. Though she reportedly celebrated her victory with some pasta from room service, it’s clear that she wouldn’t be where she is without regular discipline.
