Weaver definitely follows a clean diet plan to stay in her best shape. While she doesn’t do any strict diets, she limits herself of indulgences. “As lovely as it is drinking champagne and having sumptuous food, your body needs to recover from these excesses,” said the actress. That’s why she makes it a point to focus on having a mostly plant-based diet. She’s also at the age where she doesn’t crave sugar and salty foods anymore. At least not as often as she did when she was younger. Her diet now mostly consists of vegetables, fruits, occasional meat, whole grains, plus lots of water.
