strict crazy training and diet advice sculpts some of Hollywood’s hottest (and thinnest) bods: Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Richie are among her top celebrity clients, and her “metamorphosis” program is known for transforming body types. Which is why we’re so curious how the 37-year-old former dancer will handle her pregnancy, announced earlier this week. We hope her own body’s transformation over the next few months will teach her to take a more holistic approach to diet and fitness.
Judging by this abbreviated version of the sample menu Anderson made for Gwyneth Paltrow, part of Anderson’s method is an extremely low-calorie diet; something that’s just not a good idea when you’re fueling the growth of a fetus and preparing for childbirth and breast-feeding:
7 AM: Wake up, have a green tea
BREAKFAST: A Think Thin bar or Clean Shake
8 AM – 9:30 WORKOUT
POST-WORKOUT: Kale Juice
1 PM LUNCH: healthy wrap made with low-carb, low-calorie Mountain Valley tortillas, 1.5 tablespoons almond butter, chopped dates
AFTERNOON: A small handful of almonds, a GT’s Raw Organic Kombucha, or kale juice
DINNER: Turkey Kale Soup
I love kale juice. Honest. But as a post-workout “meal” or “snack,” it’s lacking in just about every macro-nutrient, including calories.
This won’t be Anderson’s first baby; she has a 10-year-old son from her first marriage to former NBA star Eric Anderson, but it will be the first time that she goes through the process in the public eye. With her career—which centers around her meticulously toned body—at a high point, we just hope she learns to relax and experience pregnancy without stressing over weight gain or the changes it causes in her body.
