She Does a "Military Diet"

When Draya wants to slim down, she gets incredibly strict with her diet. She does a "military diet" which includes clean foods like grapefruit and lean protein. "You know what I had for breakfast today?" she revealed in an Instagram video. "Coffee, one hard-boiled egg, celery, and a spoonful of cottage cheese."

Draya exercises on a treadmill. "I am naturally skinny but I stay on the treadmill in my house," she told RadarOnline. "I watch the clock for the ENTIRE 45 minutes like a hawk. But I work really hard, I'm up to an eight incline."


She Hydrates

Draya is all about hydration, she explained to FashionBombDaily per Madame Noire. "Increase your water intake," she said. "Any amount is better than what you've been drinking. Your body and skin will thank you for it in the long run."


She Cooks Small Portions


"I try to cook as much as I can and I don't necessarily cook healthy, but I use very small portions to keep the calories at bay," she told FashionBombDaily. "I love soda……but my skin and body [don't]. I'm a cheater about once a week."


It's All About Balance

Draya explained to BET that her approach to health is ultimately about balance. "I am six months pescatarian. I've tried to limit my chicken and red meat consumption a lot. I try to drink a lot of water. I try to work out. My downfalls are sweets. I really love sweets. And alcohol goes with partying. If I'm going to drink, I try to diet. If I'm not going to diet, I try to skip dessert," she said. "Dieting is always going to be a struggle, so that's why you have to balance it with working out. I don't eat whatever I want, but if I do eat whatever I want, I at least got to work out to make it even."
