Gal Gadots Diet
Gal Gadot’s diet was created by her trainer. He had her focus on meals including green vegetables, as well as, lean proteins. The key to Gal Gadot’s diet was balance, drinking plenty of water, and moderation in everything.
Gal Gadot received good advice from her trainer when she started working out in New York. He told her that weight training isn’t just about the hour you put in while you’re at the gym, It’s just as important to focus on your fitness outside the gym. Twight says he reminded Gal Gadot about something very important, that: “Poor nutrition and inadequate sleep reduce the effectiveness of weight training by 20-30%.”
Further, she learned to make balanced choices through the realization that ‘Your Food is Your Fuel’. With this in mind, she focused on a selection of leans and greens to occupy the majority of her diet, having a balanced approach means getting everything your body could need.
Leans and Greens
To get a Wonder Woman body, Gal Gadot states the importance of meal selections. Her trainers taught her to balance each meal with equal parts of lean protein and green vegetables.
Lean protein gives your body what it needs to tone your muscles. While green vegetables, particularly, have the most nutrition per calorie of any food. Trainer Thomas Bradley told her to avoid what might “appear” healthy. Examples of this includes green juices, which tend to be high in natural sugar.
A better option is making your own green smoothies. This method allows Gadot to make sure she gets the nutrition she needs. They also make your body look better by reducing bloating. Popular among many female celebrities, The Beauty Detox Solution shows you how to eat this way.
Green smoothies have become the most popular Hollywood diet, as a method for actresses and actors to consume vegetables without the added sugar. Healthy meals should have plenty of green vegetables, like spinach or kale. These vegetables can easily be thrown into a drink without changing the taste. Gal Gadot says:
Gal Gadot’s trainer made sure her diet included drinking 1 gallon of water a day. She would fill up enough water at the start of each day. Then, she would make sure to drink all of it by the end of day.
