Kelly McCreary tries her best to live a healthy life. She exercises, lives an active lifestyle, and eats well. But just like everybody else, she finds it hard to resist food sometimes. “I’m going to be honest—although I like to make healthy choices at every meal, sometimes I just can’t resist the craft services on set,” said the actress.
Nonetheless, she makes sure most of her meals contain protein-rich foods and fiber from fruits and veggies. She avoids binge-eating and usually eats in moderation. She also avoids processed foods, anything with lots of sugar, salt, and oil. Instead, she focuses on having clean, whole foods to nourish her body. She also stays strong with her fitness regimen that includes yoga, cardio, and weight training.
