Elizabeth Olsen’s Diet

Summary

Olsen says she didn’t do any kind of dieting for Avengers, which is almost unheard of in the industry. Back in the early 2000s, she nearly quit acting after her sister Mary-Kate was hounded by the media about an eating disorder. Olsen admits the pressure to look a certain way is intense, and she chooses healthy options as a way of life. She prefers smaller, more frequent meals, and she’ll eat a lot of fresh fruit, veggies, nuts, fish, and protein shakes for high-quality nutrients without a lot of calories. She drinks 1 ounce of water for each pound she weighs.

No Dieting

It’s a rare actor who doesn’t go on a diet to star as a superhero, but that what Olsen said about playing in the Avengers: no dieting.

Blackstrap Molasses

Blackstrap Molasses

Olsen also took blackstrap molasses while prepping for her Avengers movies. Blackstrap molasses comes from sugar cane but is less refined, preserving vitamins and minerals including iron, manganese, vitamin B6, potassium, calcium, and selenium. It’s also lower on the glycemic index, making it a better choice as a sweetener than refined sugar. Blackstrap molasses combats stress, promotes healthy skin and bones, relieves PMS symptoms and may even help prevent cancer.
