She limits her sugar consumption.
Graham isn’t one of those celebrities who claims to eat anything and everything and stay fit. In fact, in a 2013 interview with Refinery29, the star admitted that cutting down on sweets has been an important part of her healthy eating plan.
“I do eat sugar sometimes, but as a broad rule, I try to just eat no sugar basically, and I have to say I feel a lot better,” Graham explained.

So, what does the actor eat in a typical day? Graham revealed that her go-to dishes include beer can chicken, baked sweet potato wedges, and kale salads with chopped Brussels sprouts and toasted almonds. “Everyone’s into kale. It does make you feel healthy.”

She’s a yoga devotee.
When it comes to working out, Graham prefers a calm exercise routine to the frenetic pace of some gyms. “I’m obsessed with yoga. For fun, I would go on a yoga retreat and do four hours of yoga a day,” she explained.
She makes meditation a priority.
Graham has also admitted that meditation has been an essential part of keeping herself healthy, both mentally and physically.
“I think meditation and yoga, they both do a similar thing…you find that place inside yourself where you feel really good and peaceful and you really feel good about yourself and you feel happy to be alive. It’s just trying to find that place more easily and often,” Graham explained in a 2016 interview.
