American actress Angelina Jolie has been around a long time and the great thing about her is that she’s not only known for her movies, she’s also known for her humanitarian work in the world. She’s a talented performer and a filmmaker, an iconic beauty, and an inspiration of strength and compassion. Someone like her is truly amazing. With her parents being actors, Angelina had somehow seen acting as something she would do in the future. Despite her troubling past when she was younger, she was able to surpass them all and came out stronger. Her first breakthrough as an actress came as the lead star in the HBO TV film Gia. She was then critically acclaimed for her performance in Girl, Interrupted, which got her an Oscar Award for Best Supporting Actress. However, it was the Tomb Raider films that won her international recognition and cemented her as a female action star. Her next blockbuster hit was in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, where she met her now-husband Brad Pitt. Her roles in the 2010s are Salt, The Tourist, and Maleficent.
The 40-year-old international star is still a figure of sex appeal despite her age and despite being a family woman. Standing at 5’7, Angelina has always been known for her slender and lean figure, which has also made her very effective when playing action-oriented roles. Aside from her workouts, which she still does despite her career, family, and political and humanitarian works, she’s very cautious when it comes to choosing the foods she eats. Naturally, the actress has built her athletic body on a strict regime. During the production of the Tomb Raider films, she kept a high-protein diet and low-carbohydrate meals to help her build muscles. Basically, she mostly eats lots of protein, steamed veggies, fruits and drinks lots of water.
Moreover, she takes small amount of complex carbs to replenish her body with the required energy especially since she’s a very busy person. Angelina is also fond of eating raw salads. Most recently, it has been reported that the award-winning actress is snacking on ancient grains as the foundation of her strict eating habit. This means she mostly consumes nuts to maintain her lean figure. Angelina has claimed a mixture of quinoa, millet, chia seeds, spelt and buckwheat bring amazing results on her overall health and well-being. The source of this intel said: “She’s into eating products made from ancient grains and raves about their health benefits. She claims they provide her with nutrients she can’t find anywhere else, plus shinier skin.”
