When it comes to eating right, the actress listens to her body and tries to be mindful of her food choices without being too strict about it. “I try to be conscious but not stress myself. I basically say, “If I’m going to regret eating this, then I won’t eat it.” But I have my weaknesses,” said Reed.
Talking about her diet plan, she shared: “Breakfast is Special K cereal. If I’m having a big meal, it’s lunch instead of dinner. Some kind of wrap, like chicken for protein. For dinner mainly vegetables. I mix it up if I go out to eat. For a snack, I’ve been trying chia seeds. I try it a couple times a week. Boosts your metabolism.”
