The actress maintains a healthy body by following a clean, balanced diet. Nearing her 40s, it comes naturally for her to crave something that her body needs, which is nutritious foods. Fast food and processed meals are not as appealing as before. Also, Weixler doesn’t believe in fad diets. Her diet plan is quite simple — focus on fresh, whole foods that are packed with nutrition. For breakfast, she loves eggs and toast or a bowl of whole grains oatmeal with fruits. For lunch and dinner, it’s usually fish or chicken with salad. Sometimes, she goes for something else, depending on her mood. The bottom line is, she still eats whatever she wants and it just works that she prefers the healthy ones.
