American singer Halle Berry is aging like fine wine. Every time, the 53-year-old actress posts a picture, it goes viral in no time. The actress, who’s known for her role in Catwoman, The Call, Monster’s Ball, Perfect Stranger among others has been making headlines for her hot bod and fitness. While many want to know about the actress’ fitness mantra, she has been widely promoting author Maria Emmerich’s ketogenic cookbook, Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking. During a recent interview, the author Maria spilled the beans on Oscar Winner’s diet mantra.
Speaking about Halle, the author Maria told Hollywood Life, “Halle is diabetic so she needs to control her blood glucose and a ketogenic diet is amazing for keeping glucose under control. She has all my books but I think she likes the Quick & Easy book so much because as a busy mom, she likes having quick and easy options that can be very helpful with our busy lives. Not only does keto help her control her blood glucose, but it also helps give the energy to stay active and fuel her amazing workouts. On the keto diet, you have reduced hunger and cravings, more energy, more mental clarity and much more when the brain is running on ketones. This helps you stay on track because you feel so good.” (ALSO READ: Halle Berry Shares The Real Reason Why She Is Sporting A Black Eye; Details Inside)
Clearing the myths about the Keto diet, author Maria told Hollywood Life, “1) Keto is bad for the kidneys. The studies on protein and kidney health are for very high protein intakes. Keto is a moderate-protein diet. We have helped dozens of clients reverse kidney disease with a keto diet. 2) The body needs carbs. Carbohydrates are a non-essential macronutrient. The body needs essential amino acids (protein) and essential fatty acids (fats) or you will die. The body doesn’t need dietary carbohydrates. It can make all the glucose the body needs through gluconeogenesis (making glucose protein and glycerol from fat).”
