So, all her fans are waiting to hear about what she did to get trimmer, what diet plans she followed, and what workout routine she stuck to.

Well, because Ava DuVernay herself has not talked much about it (in fact, she has not acknowledged her weight loss at all), we can’t tell you the specifics of the diet plan she stuck to get fit. But what we do know is that she maintains a strict vegan diet because she has ties to the animal protection organism PETA and she has often spoken about how she believes that it is the duty of every human not to hamper other life forms. She does not have any meat in her diet. That’s all we can tell about her diet which might have been one of the reasons for her weight loss.

As for her workout routine, Ava DuVernay reportedly gets up at six, meditates for half an hour, and goes cycling for a couple of hours as she believes it is a good way to stay fit and maintain your body. Maybe she stuck to cycling for a couple of hours every day, which might have contributed to her weight loss.

Ava DuVernay has not yet acknowledged her weight loss. So, until she does, we can only speculate.
