Lea Michele and Lauren Conrad aren’t afraid of showing some skin — even though it may not “thrill” their fathers

Lea, 25, recently showed off her fit frame while on vacation in Cabo, Maxico, with her Glee beau and co-star Cory Monteith, while Lauren, 26, just stripped down for Glamour magazine.

So how do they get their amazing bodies? The pair revealed their “life changing” secret to Celebuzz at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, Calif. at the weekend.

“Read Skinny Bitch!” Conrad confessed in an exclusive interview at the LACOSTE L!VE desert pool party, during our joint interview.

“Oh my god,” Lea interjected. “Give me a high-five. Didn’t it change your life?!” 

“It scared the s–t out of me!” the former The Hills star told Lea. “Everything you eat you’re like, ‘Oh, God I know what’s in that now.’ It’s just informing you about what’s in your food.”

“Exactly,” added Lea. “When you read the book, you’re like ‘Oh, it’s just going to be all about being skinny,’ but it’s not at all. What I love about the book is that it’s just the hard core truth. Seriously, it changed my life.”

Lea was rocking wedges, a red swimsuit and a white cover-up to the fashionable soiree. But she insisted to Celebuzz that her toned physique isn’t from working out.

“It’s called the Glee diet — just dancing and singing 24/7,” Lea admitted. “I don’t go to the gym! I’m a vegetarian and I’m very energetic.”

The glowing small screen star — who plays uptight show standout Rachel Berry — also insisted a good body comes from being in a good place.

“I’m happy,” she said.

“If you’re happy, you don’t care [how you look]. If the people you surround yourself with make you feel good, it just shows.”

We have a feeling that boyfriend Cory Monteith — who was only a few feet away — has something to do with that! Check out Lea’s best bikini looks so far in our gallery, above.
