The British actress eats well and trains diligently to stay in her top shape. Looking fit and feeling great also proves to make her more efficient at her job. In an interview, she was asked what her diet plan was. “I’m very lucky with my figure, I’ve got a great metabolism but working on the Bond films has certainly set me on a bit of a health trip. I never drink and I eat very healthy,” said Harris.
“I tried the whole raw-food diet thing but got ill. I became so ill and was anemic, so I stopped that and became a vitamin junkie. I just ate lots of vegetables and exercised. My diet is very balanced, and I really grew to love the benefits – having a lot more energy and feeling a lot more alive and sleeping better and eating better.”
