Vanessa refuses to starve herself. Instead, she focuses on fueling her body with healthy and wholesome food and avoiding anything that is processed. “My overall food philosophy is, if it’s real, I’ll eat it,” she told Shape. “Many things are processed and contain chemicals and ingredients I can’t pronounce. I want real food.”
Hudgens was one of the first celebrities who promoted the intermittent fasting lifestyle. She consumes the bulk of her food between noon and 6 p.m. and fasts for the remaining 18. “I’ve been intermittent fasting a lot, because for me, I love pasta, I love pizza, and when I’m not eating carbs I feel like a little piece of me dies,” she told People. “Intermittent fasting is great, because when I am fasting — those first two weeks are definitely rough, I’m not going to lie, but after that I feel more grounded and powerful in my workouts. And I get the nutrients that I need when I eat, but then I also eat what I want.”

Vanessa goes “back and forth” between intermittent fasting and keto. “It’s great,” she exclaimed to People. “If you have the right ingredients to keep you on track, I think it’s amazing.” She also debunked a misconception about the style of eating. “People a lot of times think of fats in diets as a negative thing, and when you’re doing keto it’s a very positive thing. I’m always making sure I’m getting those healthy fats in, so I eat a LOT of almond butter. You feel really energetic and supported on the keto diet.”
