On his site, Patrick revealed it on a daily basis diet for 2013. She started her day with oatmeal, followed by egg whites with goat cheese as a snack. Then, for lunch, she used to have a whole grain sandwich with cold cuts. This was followed by Greek yogurt with granola and fruit, then for dinner she used to have salmon, rice and vegetables.
