Toni Collette does not only exercise to stay in shape, but she also eats healthily. For her, feeling great from the inside and out isn’t that complex. “I always make sure I drink lots of water, exercise and eat well,” said the acclaimed star. That’s why she mostly follows a plant-based diet. She’s a supporter of PETA and animal rights. Hence, meat is not part of her regular diet. She’s discovered that a diet mainly composed of whole grains and fruits and vegetables work best for her body.
