Stephenie Meyer is showing off a svelte shape thanks to a switch-up in her cardio routine.
"I used to be more an elliptical-and-weights girl but I've started running in the last year and I hate it and love it at the same time," the Twilight author told PEOPLE at the New York premiere of The Host, a new film based on her 2008 science-fiction romance novel.
"It's one of those weird things, there's nothing really like it," she added when asked about her weight loss.
