Multiple outlets cited that the "Blood: The Last Vampire" star has a few quick tricks she incorporates in her diet plan.

Since the actress is passionate about maintaining not just a slim but healthy body, she also focuses on her calorie intake.

The 39-year-old A-lister reportedly has a unique recipe that includes a so-called "chicken milkshake," which is her secret meal.

Interestingly, the recipe only needs simple ingredients such as chicken breasts and mixing them with milk, fruits, almonds, and vegetables, then blending it.

Another trick is that she uses her left hand when eating. Although she's right-handed, eating on the opposite side would slow down her speed while savoring the meal.
