Stephanie Leonidas maintains her healthy body, not by following strict diets but by keeping her food choices as clean and nutritious as possible. For her, staying strong and fit is just a matter of lifestyle changes that start with food. That’s why she’s since cut back on sugar and carbs. She doesn’t eat much bread and dairy like she used to. She’s also cut back on red meat and oily foods. Instead, the actress tries to focus on having a plant-based diet with occasional meat. She also eats foods high in complex carbs to keep her satiated for a long time, which helps her eat in moderation during meals.
