Actress Zoe Saldana was interviewed about her weight recently. She was asked how it was that she stays so skinny. Her reply was that she didn’t really exercise much, but she did like to eat healthy. She mentioned that she hadn’t had lunch that day yet, but it wasn’t the only meal that you could skip in a day. After mentioning that she snacks instead of eating meals she says, “you can go on for days doing that”.
Right now you are probably thinking, “That is not healthy at all!” But don’t worry, Saldana was just joking. Her interview was part of the upcoming show IFC Comedy Bang! Bang! that is airing Friday, August 10th at 9pm. You still may think there is some truth behind her words though, and who could blame you? Earlier this summer when she was in Allure Magazine she weighed a petite 115 pounds. She stated that she is a very tough person because she is a New Yorker and she is Latina, so it is all a part of her personality.
If what Saldana said was actually true, she wouldn’t be the first. Actress Joanna Lumley, one of the stars of Absolutely Fabulous, has admitted that her diet to stay thin is skipping breakfast and lunch. She says that it wakes her stomach up by doing this because if she ate a big breakfast she would be eating all day long.
Skipping meals, especially breakfast, is not a good idea. You need that kickstart for your metabolism in the morning. You need to be able to get calories in your body so that you can have energy to go through your daily routines. This is not a diet people should be trying. There is a saying: Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper so that your meals work with your metabolism.
