Megan Fox

Actress
Born: 1986

Megan Fox grew up in Tennessee and Florida. She took singing and dancing lessons starting at age 5 and when she turned 13, she enrolled in modeling classes. After winning multiple modeling awards, Fox dropped out of high school to move to LA where she got her first break being cast in the cult film Holiday in the Sun, but she is probably best know for playing in the blockbuster Transformers. Besides being named the Sexiest Woman Alive, Fox has won multiple accolades, including 3 Teen Choice Awards and 2 Scream Awards (and also a Golden Raspberry).

Megan Fox’s Diet

Summary

Fox follows a combination of Harley Pasternak’s 5-Factor diet and the Paleo diet. For 5-Factor, you eat 5 small meals a day, made with simple, natural ingredients. The 5-Factor diet allows for complex carbs that contain fiber and are low on the glycemic index (GI), but Fox says carbs weren’t working for her and so she only gets carbs from fruit and vegetables, which is Paleo. Healthy fats come from olive oil, avocados, nuts and seeds. Chemically-altered foods, artificial ingredients, additives and preservatives should be avoided.

Estimated Macros

  • Low Carbs 15% 15%
  • Medium Fat 35% 35%
  • Medium-High Protein 50% 50%

Diet Details

\

A K.I.S.S. Diet Plan

Five-factor is all about keeping things simple: recipes only include 5 ingredients and should take 5 minutes or less to make.

\

Breakfast Is Prime

Fox says she never misses breakfast. She might have egg whites, almonds and fresh fruit. The combination of protein, healthy fats and fiber help to fill her up, and fuel her up.

\

Light Lunch

Fox is fond of a salad, and often dresses it with fat-burning apple cider vinegar.

\

Forever Smooth

Fox is a big fan of making smoothies. She’ll use in-season berries, chai tea, a scoop of protein powder and some almond milk.

\

Zero Cheat Days

On the 5-Factor diet, a ‘cheat’ day is allowed once a week, but Fox doesn’t take it. Her biggest indulgences are things like blueberry oatmeal pancakes and hot chocolate made with non-fat milk powder.

Carbs didn’t make my body feel good.

Megan Fox’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

5-Factor Fabulous

After giving birth to her first child in 2012, Fox worked with celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak 5 days a week. She did his 5-Factor workouts and diet.

HIIT It

Fox is a fan of high-intensity interval training, but she also does longer cardio sessions to burn fat.

Work All the Angles

To get ripped abs, Fox works all the layers (front, obliques and back), and doesn’t just do crunches.

Detox Tip

Fox’s trainer always includes a cool down and stretch after a workout to release toxins. He says the legs contain 60% of our muscles, so it’s important to pay particular attention to them.

Spin For The Win

Fox is a fan of doing her HIIT circuits on a stationary bicycle.

Core Circuit

Fox’s 5-Factor circuits are fast and straightforward: 5 circuits done throughout the day, 20 reps of each exercise that target the upper body, lower body, and abs.

Mix It Up

Fox also does things like dancing and running to keep from getting bored, and to work different muscles.

Flexible And Lean

Besides her core circuit, Fox does Pilates to keep her muscles toned, long and strong.
