While Angelina Jolie’s right leg, err, legs it with its own explosion on twitter, let’s bring the focus momentarily back to her stick-thin frame.
We consulted our favorite girls, The Nutrition Twins to get their take on her bony figure, and not surprisingly, they suggest she eats something now that the award season is over. We couldn’t agree more.
Let’s face it, Angelina’s face is always sheer perfection, absolutely gorgeous. But we couldn’t help but flinch a little when we spotted her arms on Oscar night. A bit more spindly than the last time we saw her. For a while, it had looked like she was just working out a bit much for the amount that she was eating as she still was sporting very lean, yet impressive shoulder and bicep muscles. But this looks to us like she may have lost muscle, possibly from not eating enough to support even the lean frame and muscles she was carrying before.
If Angie is still exercising (and we hope she is!) we suggest beefing up on her calorie intake to help to preserve some muscle mass. We suggest about 2300 calories a day for a few months. If she weren’t to do this, she would need to prevent muscle wasting– to do this a high percentage of her calories should come from protein. Ideally, if she does boost her calories, she’ll get plenty of protein if she consumes either at least 4 ounces of lean poultry, fish or beef, 1 cup of low-fat dairy like yogurt, 3/4 cup beans or tofu with each meal, and she’ll be able to build back her muscle mass. That is, of course if she is eating some healthy whole grains as part of those meals and some fruits and veggies too–not just eating protein on it’s own, as many celebs do as they try to prepare for the Oscars! Angie, we give you permission to eat immediately before and after the Oscars and we hope you did!
