Melissa Ordway stays fit and toned without going into strict diets. She just makes sure she works out on a regular basis. “So I pretty much eat whatever I want. Working out is really important. Going to the gym. Finding a balance between those two things, because I would be so miserable if I couldn’t eat what I want,” said the actress.
While she’s tried different kinds of diets before, she’s found it hard to maintain them. “I tried going on diets, or saying, I’m only gonna eat healthy this week and eat salads, or I’m gonna go on a juice cleanse, and I last like half a day,” she said. That’s why she tries to find a balance between her food cravings, which include a lot of mac and cheese, and her fitness regimen.
