M.O.: "I'm shooting CW's Shedding for the Wedding, so it's been crazy, but I am not OK with putting processed food or poor-quality proteins into my body. In case there isn't anything I deem worthy available, I make sure to carry vegan protein supplements, to which I can add greens, coconut water, or water that I filter through a 3M reverse-osmosis system. That allows me to have an on-the-go snack that won't bloat me and keeps my energy stable throughout the day. Hemp provides a complete vegetarian protein and is an important fatty acid for hair, skin, and nails and hormone regulation."

Core advice: "Always choose the best-quality foods and drinks, and you'll provide your body with all it needs to function efficiently. Understand nutrition in order to make good food choices."
