The actress has recently turned 38 this year. Standing at 5’10, she surely has a curvaceous yet lean figure. Despite her nearing her 40s, Rachel takes care of her body and overall health through proper nutrition. In an interview, she was asked about her diet. She said: “I definitely try to eat a healthy diet, but I am the first person to say I love unhealthy food. I would never tell you I don’t. I love fried chicken or mac and cheese. Do I order them all the time when I’m out at restaurants? No, though I do have one splurge meal a week.”
She added: “In September, for two weeks, I tried this eating plan where I cut out dairy, gluten, alcohol, sugar, carbs, and all processed foods. So I’d have a protein shake in the morning, a protein shake for lunch, and either a salad with some protein for dinner or maybe sushi, but without the rice. And normally I’d be eating dinner early, by 7:30, because I’d be so hungry! But I did it with a girlfriend and that helped a lot. It’s like the buddy system for dieting, because it helps keep you accountable.”
