Salma Hayek Diet Plan
She is a type of lady who has kept an alarm number. Whenever her weight reaches the threshold (she has not told that upper limit), she starts keeping a close eye on her weight. For this she daily checks her weight. She has to do this because she often overindulges on the food. This Mexican women has not adopted the French cuisine. In her own words –
“Everybody has a weakness (and) mine is food. If you love food and you love red wine and they put you in France, you’re in a good place and you’re in a bad place at the same time. You have to weigh yourself every day, and you have to have an alarm number. When you get to that number, you have to start putting it in reverse.”
She cannot do dieting. Whenever, Salma feels stressed, she switches to food so that she can relax and is not good at dieting. Additionally, she admits that love also helps her to stay in shape. She said –
“I think if I was not in love, I would probably let myself go faster. Love gives me the vanity to continue. I’m not necessarily vain, but when I gained 50 something pounds in the pregnancy, it did something to me. Since then, at least I make an effort.”
She revealed her food recipe. What she really likes is the apples and carrots as they are a rich source of antioxidants (which are required by the body to function normally) and Vitamin A (powerful natural antioxidant, protects from lung and oral cavity cancers and also good for eyes).
