Rebecca Gayheart stays in shape by sticking to a healthy lifestyle. She avoids processed and junk foods and eats in moderation. Her health habits are pretty simple too — she just drinks plenty of water and chooses nutritious food. “I drink a lot of water, I try to get as much sleep as possible (which isn’t easy with a one-year-old!) and I eat my veggies,” said the actress in an interview.
