At age 50, Judy Reyes stays in shape by sticking to a healthy lifestyle. She’s generally careful when it comes to the food she eats. In an interview, the actress revealed that she always felt exhausted prior to eating healthily. This is what motivated her to become more conscious of her diet. First, she minimized her consumption of carbs and sugar. She avoided having processed foods. As much as possible, she focused on eating homemade meals to make sure that the ingredients are healthy.
She said she ultimately noticed the difference. Having a clean diet made her more energetic and more focused. She also lost weight and she has maintained her healthy ever since. Of course, she also allows herself to indulge in her cravings every now and then. When it comes to splurges, she says it all boils down to moderation. She said: “Like everyone, there are times when I just don’t feel like exercising. When that happens, I’m a bit more careful with my diet. But on days I really want a treat, like chocolate, I work out a little harder. I don’t believe in beating myself up for not being ‘good.”
