Ever wondered what celebrities eat to stay in shape? Then here is one answer – Halle Berry shares a number of her favorite meals on the keto diet. Check it out for some inspiration:

My Domaine: This is exactly what Halle Berry eats in 24 hours on the keto diet

Addition

Several people have expressed concern that we’re focussing on what a celebrity eats. I agree that science and results speak far louder than what some celebrity says.

We try to be very careful with celebrity gossip here at Diet Doctor, but I felt that what Halle Berry has shared herself on her Instagram is credible and that what she eats – with links to recipes – could be interesting and inspiring enough to a lot of people that we decided to share it.

Another concern is that portion sizes seem small and that it’s more of a low-carb diet than reliably ketogenic, as the amount of fat is on the low side.

My view is that portion sizes should be large enough so that the person eating feels satisfied and good. Depending on the size and activity level of someone, and also the number of meals per day, I guess some people could do great with these meals (perhaps with some snacking) while someone else (like me) would require much more food.

Some of the linked recipes seem to be borderline ketogenic, and what we here at Diet Doctor classify as moderate low carb. To stay in deep ketosis eating them could require good insulin sensitivity and/or exercise and/or intermittent fasting. But not everyone needs deep ketosis.

For reliably ketogenic recipes (under 4 energy percent carbs and no excess protein), see our keto recipes.

    Never in my life have I seen so many negative Nelly’s on a post, if this diet is not for you just move on. We are all different, what we like, what we want, what we can do, what we cannot do. In the morning when you wake up remember to praise God for another breath of fresh air. If you are not a believer hey that’s great too, just tell yourself today I am going to be an positive person.

    Hardboiled eggs without the yolk?
    Skinless chicken thighs?

    Oh. Okay.

    Well, that menu looks to be skimping on fats. In no way does it look ketogenic... More like hunger-genic...

    “Attic chard”? The fish is named “Arctic char.” Holy freakin bejeebelus, who are you trying to fool? People who know nothing about food, I guess.

    I have to say I was a bit disappointed to see the meals Halle berry eats. There really doesn't seem to be much food on her plate. Low carb maybe. But surely not high/healthy fat? You're surely not saying that 2/3 of those meals a day actually keeps her satiated.
  5. EvgeniaBB
    Does she eat all that in one day? I'd be hungry otherwise.

    Second post I've seen in a week that seems to do more harm than good for keto as well as harming dietdoctor's credibility.
    We don't need to rely on things like celebrities endorsing keto either way, the science, results and health benefits speak for themselves in my opinion.

    Excellent. I love that she has made this diet her own. It's probably closer to low carb than Keto, but who cares?

    Can Diet Doctor please be more discerning in its posts. It is damaging to the messages of what could be a healthy diet.

    Californian BARIATRIC Surgeon performing on Celebrities noted a number who concealed their surgery and then appeared in articles, diet videos etc. He was restricted by NDAs, so they could lie, and he could do nothing.

    I think Halle looks, great, but very thin, and I think she has the genes to help her too and may have the appetite of a mouse.

    I agree! I would starve on that diet.

    Halle is also a Type 1 diabetic so perhaps deep ketosis isnt something that works for her or is healthy in her particular circumstances. Just a thought.

    I am having a very hard time understanding the Keto diet since all of these meals seem top heavy on carbs (LETTUCE!) & low on fat & protein. What am I missing!?
  17. David
    Hey Chris - 1 cup of shredded lettuce has 1 carb . . . so what in the world are you talking about?
  18. CND
    If you go back thru her Instagram there are no pictures of food or mention of the keto diet. Additionally the pictures on the article are from Pinterest, not her Instagram. I’m not saying she does not eat keto, but this seems to be misleading info.

    She does look good and that is how she makes her living. We all have to make our own way in this life. I have BP coffee and 2oz of bacon for breakfast, 400 cal and 80% fat. Works for me!

    I am a type 1 diabetic like Halle Berry I also have hashimotos. Which I only recently realised was being undertreated. Despite having all the symptoms neither my endo or GP thought to ask me if I was taking Biotin which I now know skews thyroid test results. I have been managing my diabetes and my weight on a very low carbohydrate diet but with no weight loss and massive background insulin increases. I hope that the increased medication for my thyroid will help improve matters as I would really like to try proper keto.

I hope that the increased medication for my thyroid will help improve matters as I would really like to try proper keto. There has been a general reluctance to accept even disapproval of my choice to eat low carb (20g) or less a day. Generally in 5 gram or less a day. I have felt so alienated and unsuported trying my best to manage my health whilst literally falling apart. Sorry to winge but i only found out by accident about the affects of Biotin. Meanwhile the medical profession just liked to attribute my symptoms to "something else" but with no actual answers. Obviously my physical health has been affected by the lack of thyroxine over the last 41/2 years and has impacted my mental health. I have been so depressed sometimes feeling overwhelmed by fatigue which made me feel so utterly useless. So glad that now low carb is being encouraged by the diabetes professionals at last. Maybe the Keto will be one day too.

    I am sorry! I thought I upvoted
    your comment, but it said I reported it. So sorry, agree with what you wrote, but on my phone the report comment looks like the upvote.
  23. CND,
    They are from Berry’s Instagram Stories, under ”Fitness”.

    Ah ok, cool. Just hope no one is comparing themselves to Halle Berry. We are all on our own journey.

    I completely agree with you. WOW people have way too many negative opinions to share

    So happy to see Halle Berry! She has spoken about her eating choices in interviews and I think what she talked about is totally credible. Squirrel - loving the changes to the meal planner, please bring drag-and-drop options soon. Anyways, I'm sure if you looked at what I eat some weeks, aka too much cauli-pizza and 85% chocolate, I'd be thrown out of the keto-club too! bahhh humbug :)

    How comes the comments are sooo vicious? She is not a saint, and low carb & keto are not religions...

    It looks small because we have got used to massive portions! We all used to eat smaller portions back in the 1960s and 1070s when I was a young woman in the UK. In fact I still marvel at images of USA plates of food posted online. Look at her! She looks the absolute picture of health to me.

    I LOVE that Halle Berry was able to from being an insulin dependent Type I diabetic to a non-insulin dependent diabetic. Whether that constitutes a change in diagnosis from Type I to Type II isn't as important to me as is her being an example of someone who's actually succeeded at it.

    When I see a celebrity overcome a health obstacle like diabetes, I cheer! The visibility of someone succeeding at what I'm working on myself gives me incentive, and I feel less alone in my struggles.

    I'm kinda like Kaylee on Firefly - I typically see the best in people, which keeps me feeling good about myself, the world around me, and the people I choose to share it with.

    Ok, hopping off my soapbox now.

    HMMMMM..... doesn't sound very keto to me?

    I see that many others agree with me... so what's the deal?

    No need to choose her just because of her celebrity status... I'm sure there are other celebrities that are REALLY doing keto...
