According to reports, the actress follows a vegan diet, which she only started recently. With a plant-based diet to nourish her body, it’s easier for her to stay slender. She’s found that focusing on eating fruits and veggies works well for her body. Hence, she’s since adopted veganism and it has since helped her feel great from the inside and out. When she’s working, she avoids feeling hungry in between meals by snacking on nuts and fruits. Plus she drinks lots of water to keep herself hydrated.
