Alicia Coppola maintains a healthy figure by watching what she eats. Most of the time, she can be prooud of herself for being a healthy eater. “I eat very well. I cook for my family every night. We eat a variety of things including chicken, fish, pork, lentils, all veggies, pastas, and salads. You name it we eat it—except salmon, which I find disgusting. Sorry, salmon,” said the actress. Nonetheless, she admits she has sugar cravings every now and then, though she tries to eat sweets in moderation.
