Halle Berry Gives 3 Tips On How To Look Like A Snack After 50

Wellness

It's 2018, and yes, Halle Berry is still fine. She won most beautiful woman in Time Magazine 11 times and homegirl is still at it. It's a fact that black don't crack, but damn! Everyone's first girl crush is Halle Berry. At least, mine was. The first time I saw her was in BAPS and I was amazed. Halle Berry was one of the first examples of black female representation that I had seen in film, and I wanted to be just like her.

Fast forward to now. The actress has gone on to win accolades in her industry, including the most coveted of them all. Through the years, Halle has managed to remain a pinnacle of both health and beauty. She's also managed to become a mother to two, with her youngest being born while the Berry was pushing 46. Where is this magical fountain of youth that she, Angela Bassett, and Gabrielle Union drink from?

Halle Berry has been persistent in her fitness journey since she was 19 and discovered that she had diabetes. It was an issue that she had struggled with for years, but hadn't been diagnosed for. At that point, she devoted herself to living a healthier lifestyle. There's a reason Kendrick Lamar famously rapped, "Halle Berry or Hallelujah," and we want to know how she does it.

The actress recently teamed up with her trainer, Peter Lee Thomas, and took to Instagram to offer some health and self-care tips, and here's what we learned:

Try the keto diet.

The low-carb meal plan forces your body into a metabolic state that can enhance weight loss and improve physical performance. This diet is especially beneficial to diabetics because it can help maintain healthy levels of glucose and insulin. Eliminating carbs and using healthy fats like avocado and coconut oil will help you transition into a strictly ketogenic diet.

Take superfood supplements.

We are busy women and we don't always have time to get our full daily serving of fruits and vegetables throughout the day. They are loaded with vitamins and minerals that will ensure that you're fully equipped with the nutrients you need to kick ass all damn day.

Get your yoga on. Stretch it out.

Over the past decade, there has been an influx in the number of black female yogis and we can totally see why. According to Blackdoctor.org, practicing yoga can help fight food cravings, improve digestion, and strengthen your immune system.

Berry says that cutting carbs, eliminating sugar, and staying active are all methods that she employs to continuously kick ass and feel good on a daily basis.

"It's a lot harder than it used to be," she toldL.A. Times. "As I get older, I am more conscious of what I eat."

In her brief moment of advice, we've learned that as much as we might want to stop and order a chicken wings and fries combo on our way home from work, we need to remember to ask ourselves: What would Halle do?

As women, with our busy lives and multitude of responsibilities, we forget to take care of ourselves.

Our girl Halle reminds us that even though it isn't easy, when we take care of our body, our body will take care of us.
