Claire Forlani maintains her health and overall well-being by eating well. Being in her 40s has since made her realize the lifestyle change she needed to impose on herself, especially when it comes to her diet. In a previous interview, she talked about how she didn’t follow any special diet and how she was trying to change that.
“I just quit smoking, so it’s something I need to look at differently now,” said the actress. Since then, she’s cut back on dairy and sugar. She’s instead focused on having a plant-based diet with lean meat for proteins.
