“Nutrition is really important. What you put into your body says something about you. You have one life to live and so many people abuse their bodies by eating too many unhealthy foods. I try to eat a well balanced diet… fresh vegetables, fruit, healthy meats. Though I don’t overcomplicate it. I’m not on a diet and I certainly don’t count calories. I base much of my diet on how I feel. Your body will tell you what it needs.
It’s also important to remember that you don’t need to be perfect. I LOVE my licorice and have it almost every day. Pay attention to what you eat and allow yourself some splurges every once and awhile and you’ll be ok.”
