The clay diet — it’s not a trend you hear about every day.
Shailene Woodley, however, seems quite a bit more familiar with the term. The 22-year-old star of Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars told David Letterman that she does, in fact, eat clay.
“Clay binds to other materials in your body and helps your body excrete those materials – that are not necessarily the best for you,” Woodley claimed.
Woodley eats a daily teaspoon of clay from a company that sources it from Colorado, she told Letterman. She also uses the clay in her toothpaste.
