Gigi Gorgeous’ Diet
Getty does not subscribe to any particular diet such as Keto or Paleo, but she is serious about healthy eating. To get back on track after holiday excesses, she engages in meal prep, making a whole week’s worth of meals so there is no excuse to stop at the fast food drive thru. She favors whole foods like meat, veggies, fresh fruit, and carbs including pasta, rice, and potatoes. She weighs and measures portions and then keeps them in storage containers so they’re ready to go.
