We'll say it: Halle Berry is a genetically superior human, and her unwavering commitment to health certainly doesn't hurt. Berry is one of the many devout celebrity followers of the popular ketogenic diet and regularly shares her favorite keto-friendly meals and recipes with her 5.9 million Instagram followers. Some of her go-to recipes are pulled from Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking ($22) by Maria Emmerich; others from Ruled.Me, a keto diet guide; and for the remainder, we've guessed the exact ingredients based on her photos. Keep in mind that she shared these recipes over the course of many weeks, meaning that a combination of the following 14 meals likely makes up a typical 24 hours of eating for Berry. Find out what Halle Berry eats on the keto diet below.
Berry doesn't share many breakfast recipes, so it's possible that she's supplementing her diet with intermittent fasting, which can apparently accelerate the results of the keto diet. The one outlier is the above Purium greens and beets smoothie, which is most likely made with Purium's More Greens ($43), meant to aid those looking to maintain healthy blood glucose levels naturally.
