After falling into a habit of "mindless eating." Cuoco told Shape, "Our refrigerator and pantry have completely changed…No more soda, chips, cereal; we had boxes of stuff that only a 4-year-old would eat."

However, that doesn't mean she sticks to a Spartan diet, either. Even when she's not lamenting losing out on a major award, Cuoco makes regular cheat meals part of her eating plans.

"I have to have a cheat day," Cuoco told Shape. "I know when I'm being good all week long that come Sunday, I'm going to lie by the pool, have a drink, and eat some pizza. Then I wake up on Monday morning and I'm all ready to start the week again."
