Almost one sixth of the world's population (about a billion people) don't have access to clean drinking water.
Mandy Moore is doing her part to help by urging Congress to act to help solve this awful problem.
When Mandy Moore wants a hamburger, she eats a hamburger. And she still looks fabulous!
"I'm not obsessive about [dieting]. If I want to have a burger and fries like I did [the other] night in the park, then I'm going to do that because that's okay.”
While she’s found a balance in dieting, Mandy says that she wasn’t always so carefree:
"[There have been times] when it's the first thing on my mind all the time. I'm so affected and driven by that diet and what I'm eating and how much I'm exercising. I've just realized in time that if it's a constant thread in the background of my life. That's when I'm the happiest and that's when I feel the best about myself."
Mandy Moore is in a great place with her health and body. Maintaining a fitness routine and diet that allows you to not stress over every last calorie should be everyone’s goal!

Mandy Moore paid a visit to the Central African Republic to get a feel for what it’s like to fight malaria, a disease being spread in large part by mosquitoes. She partnered with the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign to help hand out insecticide-treated mosquito nets.
"It was an honor to join this trip to help prevent malaria, which continues to kill nearly one million people every year,” said Moore. "This week I've met mothers who have lost children to malaria and worry daily about losing others. It is life-changing to be able to give them nets to protect their babies from malaria-carrying mosquitoes while they sleep."
Moore also appealed to fans to help out.
"Over the next week the partnership will deliver over 400,000 nets, nearly half the amount it will take to fill the gap. It takes just $10 to help - I hope more people will join us to make sure these families can sleep safely under an anti-malaria net. Together, we can cover the country."
Hopefully we can all band together and help stop this terrible disease!
