As well as a dedication to fitness, the star maintains a strict diet to ensure she stays healthy both on the inside and the outside. And in past interviews with Women's Health, she has revealed the foods she has completely cut out of her diet.

Halle was diagnosed with diabetes when she was 22 and as a result transitioned onto a keto diet, which meant the self-confessed "sugar addict" had to make some big changes.

"After my diagnosis, though, it was like a switch flipped," she admitted. "My health was on the line, so I went cold turkey on my sugar-filled ways. Out the window went the candy, the desserts, and even super-sweet fruit." She revealed that she now satisfies her sweet cravings with blueberries and raspberries.

Halle also avoids refined carbs, including bread, rice and pasta. "I know some of you are wondering, how could you ever swear off bread?" she has admitted. "But just like with sugar, when you give your body enough time without it, your palette changes and it loses its appeal."

Instead of mashed potatoes, for example, she instead opts for mashed cauliflower with butter and salt. For breakfast, she often eats scrambled eggs with peppers and onions, and covered a cheese, and tends to eat salads at lunchtime.

Finally, Halle decided to ditch regular wine for a low-sugar wine, in keeping with her keto diet.
