Angelina Jolie has never been found lacking the beauty department, but it also could be her post-twins organic diet that snapped her into Hollywood-worthy shape so quickly.
She strove for an eating plan that was heavy on the veggies and Omega-3s. According to a source, Angelina’s post-baby menu included organic salmon with tomatoes, brown bread and herbs for breakfast, and mackerel or grilled fresh tuna with watercress, spinach and tomatoes for lunch or dinner. And of course, eating organically is not only good for your body, but good for the environment. “If we were to convert all of the U.S. farm acres to organic, we would sequester 25 percent of all of our emissions. That is the equivalent of taking most of the cars off the highway,” says Tim LaSalle, CEO of the Rodale Institute.
Fit bodied Marc Jacobs can credit his organically-geared ways (and gym membership) for getting him into serious shape. The haute couture designer says, “I’m eating a totally organic diet, which has no flour, no sugar, no dairy, and no caffeine, and I lost weight because of that diet and because of a two-hour exercise regime seven days a week.” The former self-described “pudgy” Jacobs dropped 20 pounds on his regimen.
Donna Karan isn’t messing around. The lady who revolutionized women’s clothing and gave working girls everywhere a sexy silhouette for the office, is a devotee of yoga and a raw food fiend. The designer dropped 20 pounds going on a raw organic food diet and shared her recipe for this energizing, green juice. If this doesn’t give a radiant glow to your skin, then nothing will. A team of experts at UCLA/Louisiana State University found that raw vegetables are overloaded with the antioxidant vitamins C and E (powerful antioxidants needed to maintain healthy cells), folic acid, lycopene and alpha and betacarotene.
