Halle Berry Has The Body Of a 25 Year Old at Age 51!
Need some inspiration for fitness and sticking to your diet? Look no further than the incredible Halle Berry. The seemingly immune to aging actress, 51, has said she’s in the “best shape” of her life thanks to her diet and her “secret weapon”, her trainer Peter Lee Thomas.
Her foundation is the keto diet – she says she “lives the keto lifestyle”. Her diet includes cooking a ton of food at home, foods that follow the guidelines of the low-carb, heavy protein diet that has become incredibly popular over the past few years.
Halle says “I don’t really eat pasta, anything with sugar, it’s very much meat based” she told People magazine while attending an event for the restaurant Avra Beverly Hills.
Halle Berry is no stranger to talking about her love for the ketogenic diet, on a recent appearance on Kelly and Ryan she said the plan works for her as a diabetic.
“I eat healthy fats all day long, avocado, oil, coconut oil and I use butter, but don’t have any sugar. So when your body gets trained to burn fats, it’s constantly on fat-burning mode—that’s the secret,” she said.
Halle Berry’s other weapon in her anti-aging arsenal is her workouts with trainer Peter Lee Thomas. Thomas challenges Berry with a combination of exercises and different types – including martial arts, boxing and yoga. He even uses “a lot of military training [like] the Navy Seals would do.”
This is a special #FitnessFriday! I believe good heath and wellness is what real beauty is all about. The beauty world is constantly evolving, building a deeper connection between health, wellness, and what we know as being beautiful. A holistic approach to beauty is key, which is why I’m partnering with @beautycon to give away two tickets to this year’s #BeautyconNYC Festival where they will launch their B-Well experience. It’s all about celebrating every dimension of health and wellness. Check out my IG Stories to enter the promotion! The winner will be randomly selected on April 14 and contacted directly. Good luck! Now, let’s talk about one of my favorite pieces of equipment. The MED BALL! The med ball is one of the most versatile and underrated pieces of equipment. It can help tone your core and increases your overall strength. It challenges balance, coordination and endurance as well as promotes explosive power. You can get a full body workout with just a ball. It truly is an entire "all in one gym”. And who doesn’t have fun with a ball? When I have fun while training I feel inspired to keep going! Today we share 5 exercises with the Med Ball. Our balls are 12 lbs, but you can use any weight your fitness level allows. I do 20 reps for 5 sets. I also made 2 new keto lunch dishes I absolutely love! Have fun today! 💪🏽❤️
Halle Berry looks absolutely amazing at 51, and says she is feeling amazing too. While we were surprised to learn Halle is 51, her trainer was surprised as well.
Peter Lee Thomas told People magazine “I had no idea what her age was when I met her. I never looked or was interested in that, and when I found out, I was absolutely shell-shocked because she has the discipline and athleticism of a 25-year old.”
Thomas even thinks Halle could have been a professional athlete if she had wanted to – “She’s also not afraid to experiment and explore and take risks when it comes to fitness because she understands that in order for there to be potential growth and change, she’s going to have to do things that are commonly difficult to do.”
