The 49-year-old actress stays in shape by being more conscious of her eating habits. She admits that getting older means also means it’s crucial for her to stick to a clean diet plan. “You hit a certain age and you can’t lose weight anymore [while eating the same foods]. So I cut out all dairy, all sugar,” she said. She also avoids processed foods most of the time. She concentrates on having a whole and a well-rounded diet.
“I eat only protein, vegetables, natural fats and fruits at every meal,” she added. Because she mostly eats healthy foods, she doesn’t feel the need to binge-eat nor does she feel frequent hunger pangs. Eating healthily helps with keeping hunger at bay. The more you eat junk foods, the hungrier one feels, actually. Teri knows this so she sticks to the good ones. She’s also motivated to follow a clean diet because she can feel the difference it makes in her body.
