Barrymore said if she was going to play a zombie mom for Santa Clarita Diet, likely to be on an all protein diet, she’d have get lean. “When I’m doing the show I’m a vegan and I barely eat anything, and I workout every day, and it’s so healthy,” she said on The Late Late Show with James Corden, People recounts. She shared her meal plan here.

“When I first started the show, I was 145 lbs. and my life was kind of falling apart,” she said. “And I said, ‘Victor [Fresco, the show’s executive producer], can I lose 20 lbs. over the course of the show, and change my eyebrows and the height of my shoes and the body language and attitude and go from someone who’s kind of naïve and unhappy to someone who’s empowered and alive?’ And he said yes, and so I got to make that transformation.”
