Lea Michele’s low carb diet philosophy: Quality over quantity

Actress and singer Lea Michele is also a food lover. She makes it clear in her new book.

“Ask my friends and they’ll tell you that I’m the person who wants to talk about all the things I ate today, where we’re going for dinner, and all the things we could order and eat,” she says in her new book, which combines fitness, beauty, health, diet and lifestyles: “Brunette Ambition.”

As part of that “I really love food” theme, the Glee” star puts the emphasis on quality over quantity.

“I never treat my body like a garbage disposal and instead try to feed it only the best possible food,” she states.
