The 50-year-old actress revealed that she doesn't eat breakfast and only consumes liquids like coffee and celery juice in the mornings, consolidating the majority of her eating into the final part of the day.
2. Hugh Jackman:
Hugh Jackman is constantly bulking and cutting for roles and has found that fasting for 16 hours a day allows him to keep off the fat but pack on lean muscle.

During the training for X-Men: Days of Future Past, he followed the 16:8, or lean gains, intermittent fasting plan where he ate during an 8-hour window and fasted the other 16 hours. "I feel so much better on it," he told a leading Men’s journal during a 2013 interview. "I haven't put on nearly the amount of fat I normally would. And the great thing about this diet is, I sleep so much better."
3. Kourtney Kardashian:
On one of her recent Instagram posts, the reality television star Kourtney Kardashian admitted how the intermittent fashing has become part of her routine alongside the ketogenic diet. She explained in detail what Intermittent fasting meant to her and said “For me, this meant not eating for 14 to 16 hours after dinner,” Kourtney’s post explains. “I wouldn’t eat past 7 p.m. at night and then I would wait to eat breakfast the next day until after my morning workout, which would be around 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.”
One day per week, Kourtney partakes in a 24-hour fast where she “only drank homemade bone broth, water, and green tea.”
4. Halle Berry:
Halle Berry is one of those Hollywood stars who are ageing backward. Halle Berry has been in countless Hollywood articles talking about the mystery of how she seems to be ageing in reverse, and it’s all thanks to intermittent fasting! Her trainer Peter Lee Thomas told in October 2018 that she’ll have a green juice that’s really low on calories before a workout so that she can still be in that 8-hour fasting window. Her results are a constant reminder that it truly works and does wonders for your body.
Berry herself reveals “she fasts most mornings and eats her first meal of the day around 2 p.m., saying: "Not that I don't get nutrients and vitamins and minerals [during that time]... I just don't sit down and have a meal."
5. Gisele Bundchen:
Supermodel and formal Victoria secret angel while revealing her secret to her fit self says in her book Lessons My Path to a Meaningful Life in late 2018, that she follows the popular 5:2 version of intermittent fasting, which involves eating normally on five days of the week and restricting calories to 500-600 calories on the remaining two.
