Emma Booth keeps her diet plan simple. She doesn’t do any diet tricks to lose weight. Instead, she prefers keeping a few extra pounds on and refuses to diet even for film and television roles. “They’d be like: “can you lose weight?” and I’d say, “No, sorry, I don’t diet.” There’s a five kilo range I go up and down in, and I just wasn’t willing to change. I like the little tummy I’ve got,” said Booth in an interview. Nonetheless, she keeps her diet healthy with clean, whole foods and usually avoids processed foods.
