Angelina Jolie Diet and Workout
Angelina Jolie (born Angelina Jolie Voight) started acting at the tender age of seven and now three decades later and at the age of thirty-eight she’s a fully fledged actress, director, screenwriter, producer, fiancee to Brad Pitt (jealous much?) and the mother of six. Her accomplishments are undeniable and as a result she’s become Hollywoods highest paid actress. In her time (which is far fromover I might add) the star has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, and three Golden Globes, each a true testament to her skill and talent.
As well as her impressive CV, Angelina Jolie is also known for her incredible looks. She’s in perfect shape and has even been named by various media outlets as the worlds most beautiful woman – now that’s an accomplishment! Despite having given birth to three children (the other three are adopted) Angelina Jolie looks as amazing as ever. She’s got a killer smile, a hot body, and a set of lets even a supermodel would envy. With such a busy life, how on Earth does the A lister manage to stay looking so incredibly good? Well, it’s not without a lot of hard work, I can assure you.
Angelina Jolie does lots of martial arts training and kickboxing to help her stay sleek, strong, and slim. If you’ve ever seen Tomb Raider or Salt, you’ll have seen her throw a kick or a punch and that’s just a taster of what the star can really do. Thanks to kickboxing, she’s incredibly fit and strong. The exercise also helps her to boost her stamina, keeps her flexible, and also burns off lots of calories per session. No wonder she looks so good with all the benefits regular kickboxing provides her!
She Practices Yoga
The American actress is keen to keep her body in great, if not perfect, shape. To do this, she loves to practice yoga, especially the moves that promote muscle toning and stretching. This ensures that the star maintains her lean and sleek figure that’s famed around the world. It’s also a great way for Angelina Jolie to unwind after a long day at work, in the public eye or simply after a busy day with her six children. It’s fab for helping her to de-stress considering her hectic life.
She Loves Twisted Lunges
Angelina Jolie has a fantastic butt which she achieved and now maintains by practicing what’s called the twisted lunge. If you fancy a butt like hers, I suggest you follow her lead. The twisted lunch was developed by the personal trainer Gunnar Peterson and is now widely used by celebrities everywhere.
Resistance Training Is Key
Angelina Jolie also likes to add some resistance to her workouts. For the ultimate fat burning exercise, she likes to combine aerobics with resistance for great results. Due to her busy schedule, she’s always changing what exercises she does depending on what she has time for but some of her favourites are lunges, bicep curls, shoulder presses, step ups, pull ups, push ups, squats, and planking.
Angelina Jolie’s Diet Plan
As you can possibly imagine, Angelina Jolie has a strict diet regime which helps her keep her body and figure in tip top condition. It was during the filming of Tomb Raider (which required her to be incredibly fit and look the part too) that she started to training to become fitter and more athletic and, as a result, it was then when she started focusing on her eating habits too. To build plenty of lean muscle, she started eating a very high protein diet which was low in carbs. This is something that she kept up even after the film was finished and now, like many of her fellow Hollywood celebrities, she still eats lots of protein. She’s also a big fan of fruits and steamed vegetables. Water is also a key feature in her diet. Complex carbs are something she eats very little of, in fact she only eats enough to replenish her body’s energy supplies and no more. Other things Angelina Jolie tends to avoid are red meats as well as wheat based foods. To bulk up what she’s eating and make her meals more substantial, she eats a lot of salad, either as a side to her main or as a snack on its own. Overall, the star eats incredibly healthily, albeit very strictly. It’s extremely rare that she allows herself to indulge in something sweet and she’s always watching her calorie intake.
So there you have it, Angelina Jolie’s diet plan and workout routine. While it may be extensive, it’s not as strict as many of the top actresses and models out there. With a life as busy as hers that’s extremely understandable though. With six kids to care for, I’m amazed she has time to even do a single squat! She truly is a wonder woman!
