Michelle Pfeiffer has a diet and exercise regime behind her age-defying beauty – including 3am wake-ups and restrictive diets.
“I love the vegan diet because I love carbs,” she told Urbanette. “Eating this kind of food is much healthier, and you avoid a lot of toxins that could age your skin and body. I noticed a difference in my skin not long after I became a vegan.”
But Michelle recently revealed she’d switched her “vegan phase” for a “paleoish” diet.
What is Michelle Pfeiffer’s diet?
Michelle’s paleo diet is packed with lean meats, fruits, fish, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. The popular diet is said to mirror the food eaten during the Paleolithic era and is often referred to as The Caveman Diet.
On this diet Michelle avoids the likes of processed foods, grains, legumes, and dairy too.
Michelle drinks LOTS of water
The mum-of-two knows the importance of drinking water! You won’t find her sipping on sugary beverages and instead drinks at least two litres of water a day. Michelle is also a fan of Matcha green tea.
What is Michelle Pfeiffer’s exercise regime?
It’s not just about eating right for Michelle, she also works out to keep her body in tip-top condition too.
As for what sort of exercise she favours? Pretty much a bit of everything.
When she’s not running four or five miles a day she’s in her home gym dancing on the treadmill or working up a sweat on her pilates reformer. Michelle also dabbles in “a bit of yoga” as well.
Michelle is an early riser
If you think Michelle is a woman who loves a lie-in, think again. She likes to rise early and get to bed early too and sometimes this means getting up at 3 am!
Even on a Sunday morning, she told The Cut there is nothing better than: “Freshly brewed coffee… That early morning sun on your face.”
What is Michelle Pfeiffer’s favourite food?
Don’t bother with a top-notch restaurant for Michelle, who says she’s happiest when she’s tucking into this casual cuisine.
“My favourite food in the world is Mexican food,” she told Good Housekeeping. “I’m not a dessert person. I’m more of a crunchy, salty girl.
“I could live on chips and salsa. I would take a Mexican meal over some fancy French cuisine anytime.”
Michelle hasn’t always been healthy?
Michelle has certainly not been a health fanatic all of her life. In fact, she had way more than one vice in the early years of her career.
“I haven’t always been healthy,” she told Ladies Home Journal. “When I was in my 20s I smoked two packs of cigarettes a day. I lived on Marlboro Lights and Coca-Cola.”
Does Michelle Pfeiffer drink alcohol?
The star admits she likes to unwind with tequila or wine in the evenings and regularly posts photos raising a glass with her husband of 26-years, David E. Kelley.
