According to Haddish, changes in her diet have made a big impact.

“I’ve been eating differently, eating way more vegetables, definitely eating directly out of my garden and just really putting in the work, making sure I sweat every single day and staying up on nutrition – nutrition is everything,” she said.

The actress revealed that she has been diligent about taking her vitamins and working out every day and reflected on how her past has shaped her current outlook. 

“I was homeless and hungry – that’s like two Hs you don’t want to be! Once I got over that hump, I felt relieved. But also I felt like I must continue to work and create opportunity for others so that I don’t end up that way again,” she said. “I believed there was definitely going to be a better day, that the things that I was going through was to get me stronger for something greater. That the pain that I was feeling was all to prepare me for success.”

As an ambassador for Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins, Haddish has been raising awareness about WhyHunger’s Hungerthon on social media.
