Former Catwoman and full-time stunner, Halle Berry has been dropping jaws for well over two decades. Apart from her stellar acting skills, the Monster’s Ball star also runs a tight ship when it comes to her diet and fitness. At a recent restaurant opening in Beverly Hills, Berry spoke about how she maintains that fab form without losing her mind over crazy diets and starve regimes.
The Keto Magic
“I don’t really eat pasta, anything with sugar, it’s very much meat-based,” said Berry, who has been known to follow a ketogenic diet. “I eat meat, I enjoy chicken and beef and a lot of vegetables”, she revealed adding that her diet is also well supplemented with “healthy fats”. “I eat healthy fats all day long, avocado, oil, coconut oil and I use butter, but don’t have any sugar.
“So when your body gets trained to burn fats, it’s constantly on fat-burning mode—that’s the secret,” the actress said, shining the spotlight on the science behind her low-carb and sugar-free diet.
But it’s not just her own diet that gets the goodness of the Keto regime, which has been given a thumbs up by a number of nutritionists and celebrities. Berry has found a way of making the diet work for her kids – daughter, Nala, 10, and son Maceo, 4 – as well. “My kids love stuffed zucchini halves. They’re my answer to a stuffed baked potato,” she said. “They love it.”
Working It Like A 25-Year-Old
There are no two ways about the fact that Halle Berry, 51, could give any twenty-something a run for their money – be it in the looks department or health wise. Something the actress’ trainer, Peter Lee Thomas, also agrees with.
“I had no idea what her age was when I met her. I never looked or was interested in that and when I found out I was absolutely shellshocked because she has the discipline and athleticism of a 25-year old,” Thomas said in an interview.
When it comes to sweating it out, Halle Berry pairs her meticulous diet regime with an equally sincere workout. Thomas likes to keep the actress well-toned with a combination of interesting and “challenging” exercises including martial arts, boxing, and yoga and “a lot of military training [like] the Navy Seals would do.”
