Fran recently went on a regimented diet to enhance her health: She's gone vegan and gluten-free, and also gave up alcohol. So what do the cute couple do when it comes to eating together?
They head to the kitchen to make their own meals, according to Us Weekly. Fran "loves to cook with the Indian-American scientist." She's also demonstrated her cooking skills on talk shows, and recently dished with Wendy Williams about her revitalized diet.
"It was tough going," Fran told Wendy. "I wasn’t able to knock off that kind of weight in years. I just decided that I wasn’t feeling well… and I went to a bunch of doctors, and everybody had different prescriptions for all my symptoms and I just decided, ‘No more, I’m gonna do alternative. I’m gonna to switch up my act, eat differently, clean up my act.’ And so I cut out alcohol… so that went, and I became gluten-free and vegan."
In addition to losing 15 pounds, Fran says that the changes have enhanced her skin and boosted her energy.
“I am getting a lot of compliments on my skin and how good I look and I really think it has to do with the no drinking. It (alcohol) dries your skin out a lot," she said.
And the increase in energy also helps with keeping pace with her younger boyfriend.
"[I've] got a lot of energy and a lot of contemporary taste in music or whatever, so I have more in common with guys who are younger," she told HuffPost Live. "I'm trying to keep it within ten years now. Definitely younger."
As to how she feels with the combination of a healthy diet and a new boyfriend?
"Falling in LOVE. Cant believe it how it happens out of the blu," Fran recently tweeted.
