She’s already in her mid 40s, but she looks younger than her actual age. It is also amazing how she has managed to stay svelte all these years. The mother of two does so by trying her best to live well. In her age, she understands the importance of taking care of her body through proper nutrition. She also knows that it’s more crucial for her to be cautious of the food she eats. Though she admits to being a food lover, she also mostly chooses nutritious options over unhealthy ones.
She knows that her body and mind are also dependent on what she eats, thus she tries her best to mostly consume foods with high nutrients. However, in an interview before she admitted that she once had unhealthy eating habits. She said: “I’m a fast-food junkie. I love McDonald’s. I order a Big Mac, six-piece Chicken McNuggets, two cheeseburgers, French fries, and a Coke, plus every dipping sauce.” But she’s trying to change that, though not entirely for the sake of her love of food. She just tries to limit her consumption of foods high in fats, calories, sodium and sugar.
