Hollywood star Ciara Renée had her screen career beginnings in the 2010s. She made her first television appearance in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She gained fame after landing the role of Kendra Saunders / Hawkgirl in The Flash. She also reprised her role in an episode of Arrow. She continued playing the role in the spin-off Legends of Tomorrow. She was part of the show’s main cast for its first season. Her portrayal of Hawkgirl gained her mainstream attention among television audiences. She also got her breakthrough on stage when she landed the lead role in the Broadway show Pippin. This year, she guest-starred as Ellen in an episode of Master of None.
The 27-year-old actress stays in shape by trying her best to have a healthy diet. Talking about her food choices, she said: “Me and food have an on-again, off-again relationship. There are times when I just love food and I eat healthily and feel great. There are other times, when I love all the wrong foods, feel horrible, and then begin to hate food.” She also revealed how she wasn’t always a healthy eater. She said:
“I was raised with pretty poor eating habits, thus, I am consistently thrown back into old habits of feasting on chips, cookies, soda, and all other manner of sweets when I am stressed (which is always) or sad (which is sometimes) and needing comfort. I feel like a lot of people struggle with emotional eating, especially since food is used as a reward so often in our upbringings by parents and teachers alike.”
She concluded: “I honestly feel that, because of how poorly I’ve eaten for most of my life, I’ve developed a lot of intolerances and digestion issues that are one of the biggest reasons why I’m able to stay away from highly sugary/processed foods at all. Because if I don’t, the level of sickness that occurs is pretty debilitating. However, diet will probably always be a struggle for me, but I will not stop trying to right my not so great choices.”
