Halle Berry pumps her Instagram followers up with her weekly #FitnessFriday posts, and now she's sharing her secret to looking totally ageless at 51: the ketosis diet.

Earlier this year, Berry revealed that she initially went on the high-fat, low-carb diet as a way to manager her Type 2 diabetes. Now, she's sharing exactly what she eats in a day to stay in such fabulous shape.

Breakfast

The actress might start a typical morning with a juice of beets and some of Purium's Scoop of Greens, a dietary supplement containing barley and wheat grass that the company claims may help support healthy glucose levels for people with diabetes.

Lunch

For lunch, Berry has a handful of green beans with bolognese sauce. Traditional bolognese sauce contains a lot of fat, which might be good for Berry's keto diet. But if you're looking for a leaner version of this dish, check out this turkey bolognese recipe, which uses less-fatty meat and cuts out all that oil and butter.

Dinner

Berry's dinner of Arctic char topped with olive compote looks to be balanced out with a side of mashed cauliflower, a yummy low-carb, low-calorie substitution for those heavy mashed potatoes.

Snack

Because her diet is geared toward managing her diabetes, Berry makes sure to have four small meals a day, she once told Women & Home South Africa. Here, she's about to nosh on an aesthetic plate "cheese tulips," or cheese-stuffed cherry tomatoes and scallions.

Berry swore by the keto diet earlier this year, going in on all the benefits she's received since starting it years ago. "The keto lifestyle offers so many benefits such as weight loss, (moms that’s how we get rid of our baby bellies), appetite control, more energy and better mental performance," she writes on Instagram. "If you’re like me, you can possibly reverse type 2 diabetes, you’ll experience better physical endurance, better skin and also less acne if that’s an issue. And it even helps control migraines!" Berry also credits the diet for slowing down her aging process.

In case you've been ignoring that one friend who won't stop talking about the keto diet, it works by forcing your body to burn fat instead of carbs. And it works fast: Experts say that your body can enter a state of ketosis in one to two days, and that you may be able to lose more than 12 pounds in one month while on the diet.

If you're interested in trying the keto diet, whether you have Type 2 diabetes or simply want to look forever young like Berry (hey, we can dream!), be sure to consult a physician first.
