Michelle Rodriguez Says the Master Cleanse "Sucked"

Feb 19 2014 - 1:11pm

You can tell by her rocking bod that this tough and talented actress (and Cara Delevigne's main squeeze [1]) is no slouch! Whether or not she's prepping for a role, Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez maintains a healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle to keep her body in tip-top shape.

She keeps her diet clean: Michelle understands the importance a diet full of natural whole foods can have on the body. She's a proud (and eco-friendly!) meat eater who regularly eats free-range chicken and fish for their high-protein content, and Michelle tends to "gravitate towards broccoli, spinach . . . [and] beets [2]" as her go-to vegetables.

She stays active when traveling: Whether she's hanging with Cara in NYC or on a European vacation, Michelle stays active. But instead of being a slave to a boring routine, the actress chooses to take advantage of what's around her. When she was in Spain, we learned that Michelle hopped on a paddleboard [3] for a fun and active ocean ride.

She doesn't go for crazy cleanses: Michelle wasn't afraid to say that she "tried the Master Cleanse [4] and it sucked." While she did say that it helped "clean her out," she had a hard time sticking to a rigid, restrictive cleanse that didn't allow her to be social with friends — and we don't blame her! Instead of putting your body in an uncomfortable, unsatisfying spot, opt for detoxifying recipes [5] full of essential nutrients your body needs.
