To maintain her healthy figure, the Canadian star follows a clean, balanced diet plan. While she doesn’t believe in any fad diets, she makes sure that she eats right by choosing her foods well. Her healthy lifestyle involves cutting back on sugar and salt. That’s why she rarely eats fast food and anything processed. Instead, she has whole foods which mostly are lean meat and healthy fats with salad on the side. She has plenty of veggies on a daily basis, too. She avoids binge-eating as moderation is also part of her diet. When she’s busy working, she snacks on filling foods like nuts, fruits, and yogurt to avoid getting hungry so frequently.
