Proteins, healthy fats and fiber
James Farmer, is the actress’ personal trainer and says that the key is to include proteins, healthy fats and vegetables such as spinach and cauliflower in each meal. The Paleo Plan that has been created for Sophie is low in carbohydrates and includes fruits, vegetables, lean meats and nuts. What’s forbidden? Skipping breakfast which was an error the actress used to make before working with Farmer.
The star of X-Men also avoids processed and refined food, legumes, cereal and dairy produce.
Stone Age diet
The Paleo diet is inspired in the alimentation that would have been common during the Paleolithic period, also known as the Stone Age, when there was a prevalence of fruit and vegetables. It’s based around groups of permitted foods and those which you should avoid. Among the allowed foods are grass-fed meat, free range chicken, fish, seafood and free range eggs.
Dried fruits and nuts are also allowed as are vegetables, fresh fruit and healthy fats such as coconut, olive and avocado oils.
Dairy products, processed food, legumes, refined cereals and anything with too much sugar should be avoided at all costs. A dietary plan based on the eating habits of our distant ancestors will help us lose weight or maintain our figure according to the Mayo Clinic. But it’s important to include an exercise routine with any such plan.
