'You Have To Allow Yourself To Cheat'

Speaking to People in 2017, Daddario revealed: “I eat when I’m hungry,” adding: “I try to stay away from anything unnatural, but if you are trying to stay healthy and you get too hungry, it will only be more difficult to stay away from things like too much sugar if you don’t give yourself what you want sometimes. I’m focused on being healthy and not stressing or obsessing over food.”

The Dior ambassador continued: “You have to allow yourself to cheat. I know if I have some ice cream at night it’s not going to affect me negatively. Enjoy your life!”
