In her HollywoodLife interview, the multihyphenate star said that she plans to continue practicing intermittent fasting for the foreseeable future.

"I'm still not subscribing to the standard American diet, which has made a mockery of the human body and created the obese epidemic that is our world today…And I continue to fast because it's how humans are supposed to eat," she explained. While, in the past, Raven-Symoné has admitted to doing multi-day fasts, she says she's since stopped, sticking to a daily fasting period instead.

"As I continue to sustain those tactics, I know that my body's going to continuously change," she explained.

In a June 11 interview with Good Morning America, Raven-Symoné admitted that adhering to a low-carb way of eating has been an essential part of her weight loss, as well.

"I am low-carb as much as I can be," she revealed. In a March Instagram post, she explained, "I don't eat any bread," noting that she was sticking to whole foods, including lean proteins and vegetables, instead.

She doesn't have a goal weight in mind.

While the That's So Raven star may have dropped significant weight so far, she says there's no specific number she's aiming for.

"I didn't set out with a visual idea of what to look like," she told HollywoodLife.
"I don't feel that I'm ever going to say, 'This is how I'm supposed to look,' because when I get to a certain weight, I always find happiness within myself, whatever what size I am."
