The diet plan of Poorna Jagannathan is all about sticking to a vegetarian diet to stay in shape, though maintaining a slim figure isn’t the main goal in her lifestyle choice. “I believe in conscious and kinder eating,” said the actress. “I don’t want to eat anything that had to brutally suffer to end up on my plate … Besides, a vegetarian diet equals a healthier diet: we’re less at risk for obesity, cancer, high blood pressure and many more life-threatening diseases.”
