You might think that healthy living comes easy to vegan actress Ginnifer Goodwin, but in a recent interview with CNN, Goodwin reveals her lifetime struggle with body image and what she does to stay on track.
“I changed my eating habits in fourth grade because I was a heavy little girl, and I was unhappy,” says Goodwin. “And I remember my mom making dinner for me the first night that I was on this new program, and I burst out crying because the vegetables were green, and I thought she was trying to starve me to death.”
Ginnifer has been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years and, even today, relies on their support to help her stay happy and healthy.
“Healthy is beautiful. Because what comes with health is a clear mind and a high spirit. When I’m not healthy, I can’t think straight, and I’m unhappy. I’ll realize that I’m an emotional mess, and it’s because I’m dehydrated. Or I’m cold and cranky, and it’s because I’m not exercising and my circulation is poor.”
