Berry revealed some of her wellness secrets in an interview with Marie Claire. She says that she likes to take supplements each day. "The first thing I take in the morning is vitamin A-D-K, fish oils, and collagen in my coffee," she says. "Then, I take either Pendulum Metabolic Daily or Glucose Control supplements. Their probiotics have been really helping me heal some gut issues that I've had."


She Doesn't Eat Until The Afternoon

Berry tells Marie Claire that she doesn't eat until the last afternoon. "I stopped eating breakfast over 20 years ago. Everybody needs to break their fast from the night at different times, and so I've learned to really listen to my own body and not follow those conventional thoughts that, 'Oh, breakfast is the best meal.' The best meal is whenever you break fast. And for me, that's around 2:00 p.m. every day."


She Loves Healthy Coffee

While Berry doesn't eat until 2:00 PM, she also likes to start each day with coffee."I start off my morning with one cup of coffee, and that's all I'll have until 2 p.m," she says to Marie Claire. Berry also says that she tries to make her coffee as healthy as possible. She says that she uses substitutes for popular coffee ingredients. "I use hazelnut, like milked hazelnuts instead of any kind of milk, and I do a sugar substitute, and that gets me through."


She Does A Variety Of Workouts

Berry makes sure to workout, and she likes to do a lot of things to stay in shape. "My fitness routine changes," she tells Marie Claire. "Some days it's more cardiovascular-heavy. Some days it's working with light weights. Sometimes it's calisthenics, sometimes it's yoga, sometimes it's Pilates. I just recently got a Pilates machine at home, which I love, love, love. Sometimes it's that. I just try to mix it up. I think our bodies get used to the same exercises. So for me, it's always been important to do different things all the time."


She Uses Hair Masks

Berry revealed some of her favorite beauty products in an interview with WhoWhatWear. She says that she make sure to take care of her hair. Berry says that she likes to use hair masks, and names her favorite one in the interview. "For your hair, Virtue," says Berry. "Get this recovery mask. We've got to care about our hair. My favorite, favorite hair conditioner right now."
