Mila Kunis’s Diet

Summary

Kunis was already slim before Black Swan, but she lost an additional 20 lbs for her role as a ballerina. As a self-described foodie, she had never been on a diet before, but with will power and a food delivery service, she stuck to a 1,200 calories a day and got her weight down to 95 lbs. over a period of 5 months. She ate a lot of lean protein like chicken breast, fish and legumes, veggies, and complex carbs like brown rice and quinoa. But as soon as filming was over, she regained the weight almost immediately. To prepare for her role in Friends With Benefits and following her 2 pregnancies, Kunis followed a low-carb diet.

Diet Details

\

Count Calories

Kunis followed a diet that was low in calories to help her achieve the body of a ballerina. She did it by only eating foods that are nutrient-dense, and not eating any junk.

\

Get Help

Kunis had enough to do sticking to her diet, and so she used a meal delivery service to help her by having her meals all ready to go so she didn’t actually have to count calories.

\

Watch Your Metabolism

A downside to eating a low-calorie diet is that it can slow your metabolism, making it increasingly difficult to lose weight, and to keep it off. A slow metabolism also makes it more likely for your body to store energy as fat.

\

Low-Carb Plan

Kunis lost all of her pregnancy weight in just 3 months by eating lots of low-carb veggies, including cauliflower and jackfruit, and purging her house of all sugary, processed foods.

\

Unhealthy Habit

To help curb her appetite, Kunis admits to smoking during her preparation for Black Swan. There are definitely healthier ways to drop the lbs.

\

Dark Indulgence

Kunis loves a nice piece of dark chocolate. Her other favorite treat is wine. She also won’t say no to Chinese food or the occasional cheeseburger. Treating yourself once in a while can help prevent bingeing.
