The late-night actress attributed her weight loss to a healthy diet
While the results of Kaling’s dedication to her fit body are already evident, her dedication to it didn’t just start. The comedian previously noted that he has paid more attention to healthy eating since the epidemic.
The mother of two told the story E.T about healthy eating habits. She explained: “My son was born in September 2020, the first year of the pandemic… It was almost extended maternity leave. I wouldn’t be in front of the camera; the studios were closed.”
She continued: “After my daughter was born, I had to shoot a film two months later, so I really wanted to say, ‘Give me grilled salmon and steamed spinach’. I will eat this for three months.
However, the salmon and spinach diet wasn’t part of Kaling’s second pregnancy, as she wasn’t “forced” to return to work due to the quarantine. Regardless of not following this diet, “Late Night” has made you pay more attention to what you eat.
She said: “When the world started to come back a little bit, I thought, ‘It’s probably not the way to go if I’m eating what I see and not being mindful of what I’m eating.’
Before the conversation ended, Kaling emphasized that she doesn’t have a strict diet. “Honestly, I didn’t do anything differently. I eat what I like. Any restrictive diet I do never really works. I’m eating less of it… I wish there was something juicier or more dynamic about how I lost a little bit of weight, but that’s how I did it.”
