It’s common knowledge that Gal Godot is a certified badass. Before starring as the first female lead superhero in Wonder Woman, Gadot served in the Israeli army and modelled for Gucci. It also recently came out that Gadot was actually five months pregnant during the shooting of “Wonder Woman,” and she still did all her own stunts. If you ever needed an example of someone cool, look no further.
With all of these things going on, you’d figure Gal has to have a badass diet to help her keep her energy levels up, her muscles strong and her mind focused. Is Wonder Woman’s diet just like ours, or are Gal’s efforts too difficult to emulate – us being mere mortals and all?
Surprisingly, her diet is actually pretty attainable. Hooray! On top of that, she incorporates a lot of workout and fitness regimes into her daily routine, so it would be remiss of me not to share those secrets too. Who doesn’t want to look like her?
For breakfast, Gadot starts the day with a protein-rich breakfast – eggs, with some fruit and coffee on the side. Thankfully, this meal is pretty easy to recreate without breaking the bank. The protein in her eggs helps fuel her muscles and keep her full until lunch. The fruit can help regulate digestion with all that fiber, and the coffee has a plethora of benefits.
For lunch, it’s essentially more of the same, only now we’re talking lean proteins and greens. Gadot loves to prepare fish with garlic, lemon, and thyme for a casual night in, and in her Marie Claire cover shoot, she was spotted eating a grilled chicken breast with chickpea cakes on the side.
Her trainer, Mark Twight gets her to focus heavily on 50/50 protein and veggie plates. This way, you’re going to get that lean protein and all the benefits that come with it, but also the fiber, vitamins and minerals you need to help your body regulate itself.
Wonder Woman also recognizes the importance of balanced eating while she’s chomping on snacks. As a result, she fills up between meals on fruits and veggies. These include bell peppers, celery, cherry tomatoes, and avocado toast (avo toast, in particular, is interesting because most people have it as a meal in itself – goes to show how much energy Wonder Woman uses and the right way to replenish herself).
This girl loves veggies in general — she tries to “make sure that around 30-40 percent of … her diet is made of cooked or raw vegetables.” Snacking colorfully, people. In an interview with E!, Gal said that she helps bring balance to her life by “drinking tons of water.” She’s known to even drink a gallon a day. This is to help improve your metabolism, among other benefits.
Before filming for Wonder Woman, Gal spent six hours a day in the gym, specifically enjoying TRX workouts. “Everything’s working your whole body,” she says, helping you feel shredded all over. She also does cardio intervals and boxing with Twight.
On cheat meals, Gadot feels strongly about wanting to “experience food,” and not restricting anything from her diet. She focuses on the “measurements and quantity of the food” rather than cutting the food from her diet. She loves to eat burgers and ice cream with chocolate. This is where I feel closest to Wonder Woman.
In the words of Gadot herself: “don’t overthink your diet. It’s important to stay healthy, but you need to maintain a balance in your life. “Just give the food the respect and give yourself the respect to enjoy it.” While we all might not all have personal trainers and the ability to eat gourmet, Gal Gadot’s diet is honestly more realistic than you think.
