Reba McEntire stays in shape by sticking to a clean diet plan. Nonetheless, she admits to having weight fluctuations, especially when she indulges in her cravings. In order to make sure she stays fit and healthy, the singer-actress has since cut down on red meat and any other fatty foods.
“I’m aware of what I eat and if it’s healthy or not. I’ve all but given up eating meat, opting more for chicken, fish and salads. When we do have meat, it’s a grilled lean steak,” said the country singer. “I’m also trying to eat foods high in calcium since I don’t eat a lot of dairy products. I try to use broccoli in a lot of my cooking because of its overall goodness.”
