Hayek does juice cleanses to stay fit
Washington: Mexican beauty Salma Hayek has revealed her secret to having one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood.
"I`ve been doing juice cleanses for 15 years," UsMagazine.com quoted her as saying.
And now the curvy actress has collaborated with pal and professional juicer Eric Helms to create Cooler Cleanse, a three or five-day juice detox delivery program.
"If I`ve been indulging in rich foods, a cleanse is a wonderful way to hit the reset button," said the ‘Grown Ups’ star.
The two worked with several New York-based nutritionists and vegan chefs to develop the juice and raw-food menus, opting to only use premium-grade, organic and sustainably-grown ingredients.
To begin the juice cleanse -- which costs 58 dollar per day -- detoxers eliminate processed foods, caffeinated drinks, alcohol, dairy products and sushi.
Those on the program would receive a home delivery of six drinks -- including almond milk and watermelon lime -- that add up to less than 1,200 calories a day.
"I always lose weight," said Hayek, who complements her cleanse by doing light yoga.
But Helms, who owns NYC`s Juice Generation, mentioned that weight loss isn`t the only benefit of a cleanse.
"You`ll have renewed energy," he said.
"My skin glows when I finish day three. And it inspires me to think about what I put in my body," Hayek added.
