The soap opera star makes great efforts to maintain a healthy weight. “I’m not naturally thin, so it’s something I definitely work on,” said the actress. With this, she mostly has a plant-based diet with lean proteins. She also eats whole grains and snacks on almonds and other nuts to keep her satiated throughout the day. This helps her to be moderate when having her meals. She’s also revealed that she follows the 5:2 diet. This means she eats normally for 5 days and then restricts her food portion on the other 2 days.
