Halle Berry Workout and Diet

Actress
Born: 1966

Born in Ohio, Halle Berry won the Miss Teen All-American Pageant in 1985 and was a runner-up in Miss USA in 1986. She then became a model which soon led to a career in acting. She was the first African-American woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress (Monster’s Ball, 2001). She also has a Golden Globe for Best Actress (Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, 1999) and was named one of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 1998 & 2004. But her life hasn’t been all accolades. Berry got 3 years probation, 200 hours of community service and a $13,500 fine for leaving the scene of an accident. Berry also has type 1 diabetes. She is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs 120 lbs.

Halle Berry’s Diet

Summary

Diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 22, Berry swears by the ketogenic diet both for weight management and to manage her diabetes. The ketogenic diet is high in fat, moderate in protein and very low in carbs. She says she eats no sugar and ‘nothing white,’ meaning processed carbs. Instead, she fills up on healthy fats from things like eggs, avocados, coconut and nuts, as well as plenty of vegetables.

Estimated Macros

  • Low Carbs 10% 10%

  • High Fat 80% 80%

Diet Details

\

Breakfast Fuel-Up

Berry might have greens and beets along with a serving of collagen protein for her first meal of the day.

\

Power Lunch

Green beans replace the pasta and with Bolognese sauce, or Berry might instead pick proscuitto and arugula for a no-nonsense lunch.

\

Dinner Dilemma

Berry might have arctic char with olive salsa or chicken chili. Tough decision.

\

Snack Time

Berry sticks to her keto always and doesn’t even cut loose with snacks: bone broth, zucchini chips with guacamole or tomato tulips are her go-tos.

Halle Berry’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

Quick But Killer

Berry squeezed her workout in along with her lunch break while filming Catwoman. She only had 40 minutes total, with 25 given to exercise and 15 to eat.

Cardio & Weightlifting Combo

Berry’s trainer, Harley Pasternak, mixed cardio with weight training to get a fast and effective routine.

Quality Is Key

Berry would work out 5 days per week because they filmed 5 days per week. After a quick 5 minute cardio warm-up, she would do circuits on the upper and lower body with no breaks, then another quick 5-minute cool down.

Quick As A Wink Warm Up

Berry would do a quick cardio warm-up on the treadmill, jogging in place, grapvines or a side shuffle. Her cool down was also only 5 minutes.

Keep Moving

Berry only spends 5 minutes on the upper body and 5 minutes on the lower body, but took no breaks between sets, which meant cardio was incorporated along with the weight training.

Killer Core

Berry would do a 5-minute core routine as part of her workout for Catwoman, but she has a daily 15-minute abs routine that she does regularly as well.
