Rachel Bilson’s Diet

Summary

Bilson looks fabulous at 40. She eats clean, but doesn’t go to extremes. She likes fresh vegetable juice but she also likes bread and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. She also won’t say no to a donut. She still makes sure to eat her greens every day and she loves to cook. Two things she’s not a fan of: mushrooms and beets. The biggest change she has made to her diet since she was a child actress is eliminating dairy because it helped clear up some issues with her daughter’s health. Bilson always drinks plenty of water to stay hydrated and stave off cravings.
