Michaela McManus stays in shape by watching what she eats. While she doesn’t entirely deprive herself of food, she just makes sure that she eats clean, whole foods most of the time. Already in her late 30s, she’s already at the point in her life where fastfoods and other junk meals are no longer appealing.
Instead, she listens to what her body needs and most of the time, it’s nutritious foods. Her diet plan usually consists of lean meat with lots of greens on the side. She also snacks on a lot of fruits and consumes more veggies through smoothies. Every now and then, she indulges in her sweet tooth but she usually goes for dark chocolate.
