Amy Sedaris lives a healthy lifestyle and sticking to a clean diet is part of that. In an interview, she shared how she’d tried detoxing. “My friend and I are on a fast. It’s more about detox than weight loss. It’s this weird thing where you take Chinese herbs,” said the actress.
“I never do this stuff, but she’s kind of granola-ish and she’s like, “Look, you’re working on the book, you’re really stressed out, why don’t you try this with me?” So you take the herbs in the morning, and then you eat all the fruits and vegetables you want all day long.”
As for her typical diet plan, she usually has an oatmeal for breakfast. If she’s not in the mood for it, she makes juice from “apples, carrots, ginger, lemon, celery, and cucumber”. For lunch, it’s mostly sandwich with chicken and veggies. For dinner, it’s chicken or fish with a sweet potato and steamed green beans.
