Halle Berry Quotes

“I’ve learned not to eat a huge portion just because it’s on my plate.”
“It’s my annual test – I try them on once a year, and if I can still fit into them, then all is good in the world.”
Halle uses a pair of jeans she wore as a teenager to stay in shape.

 

The Workout
Berry, 41, works out for 60 minutes, five days a week with trainer Ramona Braganza (whose other clients, according to her Web site, include Jessica Biel and

Anne Hathaway). Their sessions include three cardio segments – on the elliptical, as well as kickboxing and then a stairs or hill climb – then also does a

strength-training routine that include abdominal work and leg exercises.

Halle swears by rowing. Dumbbell row, seated row, alternating rows, barbell row or just plain rowing on a machine or out on the water will get your back

ready for your bikini or summer tank tops.

Halle’s personal trainer, Harley Pasternak, also has a branded exercise plan called 5-Factor Fitness. It’s 25 minutes long so it’s very doable for just about

everybody. The exercise part of his plan includes 5 minutes each of the following, 5 days a week:

Phase 1: Cardio warm-up
Phase 2: Upper-body strength exercise
Phase 3: Lower-body strength exercise
Phase 4: Core (midsection) exercise
Phase 5: Fat-burning cardio

Halle follows the 5-factor program by Harley Pasternak. For the movie series X-men she worked with Personal trainer Ramona Braganza. Her circuit training

routine was all done with 5 and 10 pound dumbbells, a stability ball, BOSU Balance Trainer , and a inclined bench. The first 7 minutes of Halle’s workout

consists of cardio to warm up. Then she does each circuit 3 times resting for 30sec between set, and doing 15 reps each exercise.

Circuit one: walking lunge, single arm row, and lateral raises.
Circuit two: squat with shoulder press, inclined press fly, and tricep dips on BOSU.
Circuit three: step up with curl, ball bridge, Ball crunch. Halle also does yoga.

The Diet

The final cardio phase can be extended for as long as 30 minutes, depending on your goals and timeline, but does not have to be for the plan to work.
Eating five meals a day is optimal for keeping your blood sugar stable and metabolism in check. Each meal should fulfill these five criteria:

1. The main dish should be a low-fat, quality protein.
2. It should include a low-to-moderate glycemic carbohydrate (think beans, vegetables, sweet potatoes, wild rice).
3. You should have five to ten grams of fiber per meal.
4. Only healthy fat should be added to the meal.
5. Always include a non-sugared beverage.

In terms of diet, Berry is eating lots of vegetables, lean proteins and complex carbohydrates, as well as drinking a large quantity of water.
Halle Berry follows the 5-Factor Diet, and also follows a Diabetic Diet. She eats at home before she goes out to gatherings where there is food, as to avoid finger foods.
