For Monica Keena, staying in great shape is a priority. As a performer, she needs all the energy she can get and how else to do that than exercise and eat healthy foods. She doesn’t follow any strict diets, nor does is she interested in trying fad diets. However, she tries to be conscious of her eating habits. For example, she’s since avoided sugary drinks like carbonated drinks and those sweet juices.
She’s also limiting her consumption of junk foods since they’re loaded with sodium and saturated fats, not to mention the much more harmful trans fat. As for her diet plan, she prefers having some eggs or a bowl of oatmeal in the morning with fruits. For lunch and dinner, it’s usually chicken or fish with lots of salad. She still eats red meat but not as much as she did before. Every now and then, she’d let her sweet tooth get the best of her, having a slice of cake or a brownie.
