To keep in good shape, Maria Dizzia is mindful of her diet plan. She has since removed processed foods from her diet, as well as many dairy products. She’s also cut back on foods that are high on sugar, saturated fats, and sodium. She doesn’t have any diet tricks, though. Just that she follows a balanced diet that contains whole grains, lean proteins, and vitamins and minerals that come from fruits and vegetables. She’s also not into any strict diets. She still indulges in her cravings but she does so in moderation.
