Halle Berry

Halle Berry was born in 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio.
She is a very successful actor with movie credits that anyone would be proud of:

X-Men, Gothika, Swordfish, Jungle Fever,
Boomerang, The Flintstones....

That's an eclectic list, and it's only a sample of her film work. Ms. Berry was also Miss Teen USA, Miss Ohio, and first runner up for Miss USA. Her great looks have certainly helped her career, but she has proven many times that she's more than just a pretty face.

Ms. Berry may look like she's in her 20s or 30s, but if you've done the math you know better. She looks great because she takes care of herself. She exercises on a regular basis; but more importantly, she eats right, and she eats at the right time.

Here's Halle Berry's typical daily diet:

2 scrambled eggs, spinach, green peppers, spring onions and parsley.
If she's in a hurry, she'll have fresh berries, peaches, whey powder and diluted cranberry juice.

Please take note:
Breakfast is the biggest meal of her day.

Diluted Sugar-free cranberry juice and a grapefruit.

A large tomato stuffed with tuna and celery, or a salmon salad.

Diluted Sugar-free cranberry juice and a grapefruit.

Grilled lamb chop with dried mustard, cabbage and baked squash; or chicken baked with lime and garlic, and mashed cauliflower with onion and pepper.

Here's a hint: It's not pretty!

Ms. Berry has a couple challenges in regard to maintaining a healthy look:
