She Uses Bridge Meals


When preparing for her role in Captain Marvel, Larson worked with nutritionist Dr. Phillip Goglia on her diet. Dr. Goglia had the actress use bridge meals in her diet. "The purpose of a bridge meal is to get to lunch so that you don't overeat lunch," he tells People. "You're using fat metabolism and that will be your bridge meal to get to dinner so that dinner is an appetite environment that will not allow you to crave carbs because you've already eaten… you're kind of full. You're not in low blood sugar."


She Still Eats Sugar & Fat

Dr. Goglia tells People that Larson's diet isn't super restrictive, and that she still eats a little sugar and fat."The most recent science has shown that a little bit of fat and a little bit of simple sugar will actually increase intensity rate while you train early in the morning… and allow you to still continue to train and burn fat," Goglia said. "That really does start your engine for you."
