Halle Berry has been following the keto diet for 30 years, and it has been helping her manage her diabetes since then.
Halle, who is now in her early 50s, was found to have diabetes at the age of 22, which she says kicked off her health journey.
It was a moment she’ll never forget, where she had to re-spin the way she lived her life and have carried that with her ever since.
For Halle, that means following the high fat, low-carb keto diet.
Because I’m diabetic, nutrition has been a big part of my life,” she said. “For the past almost 30 years I have been following the ketogenic lifestyle.
In 2018, Halle wrote on Instagram that she believed the keto diet had been “largely responsible for slowing down her aging process” and helped her lose weight after childbirth.
“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!” she said.
In 2019, the actress’s personal trainer shared the actress’s daily diet and favorite dishes, including bulletproof coffee, steak or chicken with greens, and avocado ice cream.
Having been keto for so long, Halle said she didn’t crave sweets anymore and felt “incredible” on the diet.
