Susan Lucci stays in shape thanks to her healthy lifestyle. She works out consistently, as well as eats healthily, shunning processed foods most of the time. “After my two cups of coffee in the morning, I drink hot water and lemon the rest of the day,” said the actress. She’s since felt the difference in her body with her hot water and lemon habit.
Exercising has also helped her manage her cravings. “Once I started doing Pilates, I lost my taste for things like cheeseburgers and french fries,” she explained. The actress maintains her slender form because she rarely eats dessert. She’s also not into snacking, plus she doesn’t even eat a lot of bread and pasta, except when she’s traveling in Europe.
