Emma Stone Workout and DIET
Emily Stone grew up in Arizona. She wanted to be an actress since she was a little girl and her debut came at age 11 with a role in a stage production of The Wind in the Willows. Banks was homeschooled for several years and appeared in more than a dozen Phoenix Valley Youth Theatre productions. She auditioned in Hollywood for years without landing any real roles until 2007 with the film Superbad. It was all up from there, and in 2017, Stone was the highest-paid actress in the world. Also in 2017, she was listed on Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People. Stone earned an Oscar for La La Land, and nominations for many other awards. She is married to comedian Dave McCary and they have 1 daughter. Despite a limited presence on social media, Stone has hundreds of thousands of followers. She is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs about 115 Ibs.
EMMA STONE’s Diet
Stone has always been slim, but that doesn’t mean she eats anything she sees. She avoids junk and processed foods and sticks to protein and veg. Everything she eats has to have nutritional value. She will change her diet to prepare for roles, such as gaining 15 lbs of muscle for Battle of the Sexes. One thing she’s not into is fad diets.
- Medium Fat 20% 20%
- Variable Carb 20% 20%
- Hign Protein 60% 60%
A K.I.S.S. Plan
Stone isn’t interested in celebrity fad diets. She says there’s a lot of pressure to be thin in Hollywood, but she isn’t giving in on this one and continues to eat whole, natural foods.
Stone is naturally lean so to pack on extra muscle to play tennis champ Billie Jean King, she upped her calorie intake to 2,500-3,000 calories, drank 2 high-calorie shakes a day and ate as much as she wanted of clean foods.
For La La Land, Stone had to slim down. Her trainer Jason Walsh had her limit carbohydrate intake and eliminate sugar completely. He says most people could lose 10 lbs just by cutting out extra sugar from their diet. When she’s not prepping for a role, Stone enjoys sweets as an occasional treat.
Stone eats healthy most of the time, so when she wants to indulge, she can without worrying about gaining weight.

EMMA STONE’S Supplements
To bulk up, Stone drank 2 high-calorie protein shakes a day. But, her trainer says, they have to taste good or you won’t stick with it. He found a product called Metabolic Whey that had a flavor Stone didn’t mind.
To help Stone counter the stress of training, she took the Ayurvedic herb, Ashwagandha. Besides decreasing anxiety, ashwagandha lowers blood sugar and increases muscle strength.
Stone also supplemented with Udo’s 3-6-9 Oil with DHA made from flax, coconut, evening primrose, sesame, and algae. Essential fatty acids repair cell damage, eliminate toxins, and reduce inflammation.
