Emma Watson’s Diet
Say Emma Watson and your eyebrows may go up but mention Hermione Granger and the name rings a bell for sure. With a host of awards for her performance in the Harry Potter’s series, Emma forges ahead in her career staying fit and fine, thanks to her healthy diet and fitness routine.
Is Emma irked by Hollywood?
Apparently the Paris-born English actress Emma Watson was put off by the stringent demands that Hollywood made on dieting and looks. Spilling the beans of her worst fears to Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Emma reveals-“Los Angeles scares the c**p out of me.'I feel if I have to work out four hours a day, and count the calories of everything I put in my mouth, and have Botox at 22, and obsess about how I look the whole time, I will go mad. I will absolutely lose it.”
Emma’s responsible and reliable diet
Emma, childish though she looks, seems to have her head set squarely on her shoulders. She is known to avoid junk and fast foods that are a common craze to teeners of her age. Even take-aways are taboo and her diet is low on salt, sugar and sat-fats. Her diet is well-balanced comprising of the right proportion of proteins, carbs and fiber including a lot of fruits and vegetables.
The responsible kid that she is, Emma shied away from drinks as she did not want to trouble her divorced parents.
Emma‘s fave foods
Emma loves chocolates and pasta but prefers to bake at home. She also picked up a yen for bagels after living in America for a while.To quote her on this-
· "I’m obsessed with Mexican .We don’t have Mexican food in England, we just kill it."
· "Bagels – they're the best thing ever! Americans just love variety. There's so much choice, it's overwhelming. I love trying the blueberry raisin and cinnamon bagels. Luckily, I exercise a lot."'
· When quizzed on bowing to a thinness dictatorship, Emma rebounds- “It’s never been a dictatorship to me. I don’t think it’s a good think being too thin. I’m not a diet. I like eating and cooking. I can make a very good cake using raspberries and macaroons.”
· "My philosophy is to eat what you like and be healthy and take exercise. I don't diet. I love chocolate and pasta and I love baking."
· I only exercise so I can eat more of what I want
· “I don’t diet and I don’t aspire to be super-skinny. It’s not inspirational at all for me. I love food and I love cooking, and I love having nice meals.”
· “For some reason, girls seem to think [being athletic] is unfeminine and they worry about being ‘pretty.’ But I feel the most pretty when I come off the pitch after a field hockey game and I’ve got pink cheeks and bright eyes.”
· "I don't have perfect teeth, I'm not stick-thin. I want to be the person who feels great in her body and can say that she loves it and doesn't want to change anything (but it's hard)."
· "I do worry about the expectation to look a certain way. L.A. is quite scary with all those young people having plastic surgery.
· "It's ridiculous that [loving the way you look] seems such an unrealistic goal. I think the actresses who are really successful are the ones who are comfortable in their own skin and still look human."
Well, Emma got those last quoted words right. Beauty is definitely skin –deep and needs ore character to go with it. Emma is definitely on the right track as far as her epicurean tastes go. Hope she sticks to it.
