What is Willa Fitzgerald’s Diet Plan?
Willa Fitzgerald isn’t crazy about diets, but she makes sure she’s strong and healthy – something you can only achieve by eating well and exercising. Being an actress means her routine will always be unpredictable but one constant aspect in her life is mindful eating.
To do this, she picks mostly whole foods for her meals and snacks, lessen added sugar, be more conscious of when she’s actually hungry or just bored, savor every meal, and discover what food makes her feel good. When she’s working, she avoids unhealthy snacks by stacking her trailer with almond butter, dark chocolate, rice cakes, protein bars and prepped-lunches.
She also has a different definition of balance when it comes to diet plans. “For me, “balance” involves eating mostly plants, never avoiding carbs or entire food groups, and always leaving room for Van Leeuwen ice cream,” said the actress. “Food is such a pleasure, so taking that time and connecting with what I eat is the real priority.”
