Movies like When Harry Met Sally and Promised Land earned her recognition all over the world as America’s Sweetheart, but Meg Ryan, amazingly lithe and supertoned in real life, has got more to be proud of. The 47 year old star doesn’t look a day over 40, and her fit physique can easily give younger actresses a run for their money.
"I’m thankful for my genes, I’ve never had a problem with dieting, I’m not fussy when it comes to food." She says. "I workout every day anyway, it’s become part of my life."
Meg Ryan’s diet is the famous zone diet, wherein the goal is to achieve a hormonal balance through the consumption of specifically prepared meals which involves the ratio of carbohydrates (40%), fat (30%) and proteins (30%). This diet was created by Barry Sears, a biochemist and book author who believes that a person should only consume foods that controls the body’s insulin production.
Meg’s dietary intake consists of a lot of fresh, leafy green vegetables, fruits, nuts, enough amount of proteins and eight or more glasses of water.
Meg Ryan’s exercise routine includes Yoga and conditioning activities such as interval and circuit aerobic workouts, yoga postures, core training, plymetrics, self-defense training and boxing.
"I’m so into yoga. I can’t believe how numerous the benefits are." She says. "I’ve never felt so much calm. It’s a great stress reliever, what with all the proper breathing techniques, and really enhances one’s flexibility."
