Dame Helen, who turns 69 on Saturday, says she is a 'classic yo-yo dieter'.
She has always fluctuated by 10lb - and is currently at the top end of those 10lb! But rather than hit the gym, she said that it takes her just 12 minutes of exercise a day to keep herself fit.
She follows the Royal Canadian Air Force exercise plan, which was created by a doctor in the 1950s. It is a stretching and toning regime originally designed to keep the men and women of the force fit in a quick way without gym equipment.

Singer and TV star Tulisa Contostavlos's trial over drugs allegations has collapsed.
Judge Alistair McCreath told Southwark Crown Court he believed prosecution witness Mazher Mahmood had lied to the court.
Mr Mahmood had claimed that Ms Contostavlos had put him in touch with her rapper friend Mike GLC to supply him with Class A drugs. The former X Factor judge had denied the allegations.
The judge told the jury the case "cannot go any further" because there were "strong grounds to believe" that Mr Mahmood had "lied" at a hearing before the trial started.
Now Good Morning Britain asks - what went wrong and can Tulisa repair her reputation?
