Halle is a fan of Intermittent Fasting at swears by the 16.8 approach whereby you fast for a total of 16 hours which means she doesn’t eat until 2pm and has her last meal by 10pm.
The actress also follows the high fat, low carb Keto diet which means she eats no grains, root vegetables or sugary processed foods.
“Being diabetic most of my life, I have always had to take food very seriously. So for years, I have been following the keto or ketogenic diet. I hate the word “diet” so while you’ll see the word diet, just know I encourage you to think of it as a lifestyle change NOT A DIET!,” Halle shared on her Instagram account.
"Keto is a very low-carb food plan which actually forces your body to burn fat like crazy. I also believe it’s been largely responsible for slowing down my ageing process.
“The keto lifestyle offers so many benefits such as weight loss, (moms that’s how we get rid of our baby bellies), appetite control, more energy and better mental performance. If you’re like me, you can possibly reverse type 2 diabetes, you’ll experience better physical endurance, better skin and also less acne if that’s an issue. And it even helps control migraines!"
She told People TV that she fills her plate with veggies, lean protein and nuts.
“You can eat all the food you want,” she says. “You can eat a big-ass porterhouse steak if you want. You just can’t have the baked potato.”
