Lucy Boynton stays healthy by following a clean diet. While she doesn’t necessarily practice any strict diet routine, she maintains a healthy body by being mindful of her food choices. Recently, the actress is trying to cut down most meat from her diet. “I’m trying to be pescatarian which feels much better in every way,” said the actress. “The movie Okja was a pretty rude awakening and is, I think, all the motivation anyone should need.” Nonetheless, she’s not too rigid about her meals. She eats whatever she wants, which means pancakes and dark chocolates are part of her day to day.
