Halle Berry has always been a sight for sore eyes because of her elegance, grace and good looks; both on and off the screen. Over 50 years old now, she still doesn’t look a day older than 30!
So what’s Berry’s secret? She swears by a ketogenic diet!
This essentially means she’s learnt to live without carbs and sugar and live off healthy fats, like the ones you get in avocados, coconut oil and eggs. Your body learns to burn fat instead of sugar or carbs and eventually your fat burns off your body, according to Madamenoire.
“I try to eat four small meals a day.
I like to feel strong and healthy,” Berry tells Women & Home South Africa. “I started to eat loads of wonderful fresh vegetables, chicken, fresh fish, and pasta. I cut out red meat and cut back on fruit because it can contain quite a lot of sugar,” she tells Daily Mail UK.
She also talks about how sugar is like poison for your system and your skin and how avoiding it helps as a natural anti-aging secret!
“I use Xylitol as a sugar substitute and give it to my daughter. It’s rough though because she’s at a friend’s birthday party every other month and there are all these wonderful birthday cakes so I don’t deprive her of that. I strongly believe in talking about nutrition at an early age and setting a good example,” believes Berry as stated in Marie Claire UK.
She focuses on bodyweight style training and not weight training and mixes it with yoga and pilates to maintain a lean and tender muscle tone.
She also mixes it up her routine every three to six months in order to trick her body so her workouts continue to remain effective, according to Madamenoire.
“Her abs look amazing,” says Nat Bardonet her trainer who focuses on training her abs three times a week during their 30-minute training sessions, as stated in People.
“The way I push Halle, not many people would be able to last,” says Bardonnet. “She always has great energy and a great smile,” adds Bardonet. “She always stuns me how beautiful and sexy she looks. Whatever curveball I throw at her, she can take.”
