Actress Halle Berry has always been known for her sexy pixie and super toned athletic body. She is a fitness enthusiast and shares occasional #FitnessFriday health tidbits on her Twitter and Instagram.
The 51-year-old Oscar winner, who also suffers from diabetes, recently revealed the special diet that not only helped her fight the condition but also helped slow signs of aging. In an Instagram post, the hottie said that ketogenic diet changed her condition for the better.
She captioned a photo of herself in a black hooded jacket and sports bra, her face in the shadows, saying, "I think the most important part of being healthy and in great shape largely depends on what and when you eat. Being diabetic most of my life, I have always had to take food very seriously. So for years, I have been following the keto or ketogenic diet."
She further added, "I hate the word “diet” so while you’ll see the word diet, just know I encourage you to think of it as a lifestyle change NOT A DIET! Keto is a very low-carb food plan which actually forces your body to burn fat like crazy. I also believe it’s been largely responsible for slowing down my aging process."
She recommended the diet to anyone looking to lose weight, especially new moms and people with type 2 diabetes. "The keto lifestyle offers so many benefits such as weight loss, (moms that’s how we get rid of our baby bellies), appetite control, more energy and better mental performance. If you’re like me, you can possibly reverse type 2 diabetes, you’ll experience better physical endurance, better skin and also less acne if that’s an issue. And it even helps control migraines!"
According to Healthy Holistic Living, a Keto diet is all about eating food with no or low carbohydrates that makes the liver turn ketones in the body to energy.
