Amal’s post-twins diet is crackers…
Mrs Clooney looks incredible, but it takes some work
While most new mums snack on leftovers and struggle to find a top that hasn’t been puked on, Amal Clooney is enjoying a slightly different experience following the birth of twins Ella and Alexander two months ago. Pictured looking amazing near her and George’s Lake Como home, human rights lawyer Amal, 39, has got everybody asking how the hell she got back into shape so quickly. Now, heat can reveal it’s all thanks to a diet of fish and crackers.
And she didn’t waste any time getting started, either. “The day after giving birth, Amal went on a special Mediterranean fish diet that her friends swear by,” says our source. “She eats fish twice a day, including salmon, sushi, mackerel and swordfish. Breakfast is usually seaweed soup and sometimes a boiled egg, and for lunch and dinner, Amal has fish and chickpeas, plus houmous on a wholegrain cracker with no preservatives. She has vegetables with every meal, too.”
In true Amal style, she seems to be finding the diet pretty easy. “Amal always goes to restaurants that serve fish, so it’s fine,” our source says. But it’s not just the diet giving her that bod. “She also walks for an hour each day, along with 20 minutes of weight-lifting every other day, and 30 minutes of Pilates on the other days.”
And that glowing complexion gets a boost from some seriously high-end products, too. “She exfoliates every day with a scrub made with real diamonds, which are ethically sourced,” our insider says. “She has a homemade honey facial twice a week, which comes from a farm owned by a family friend, although the facials are still $350 each. She also has an acupuncturist and reflexologist visit once a week to enhance her wellbeing – getting it done in front of the babies, so they see it as normal, not scary.”
George, 56, could even be getting in on the action soon, too. “Amal is trying to persuade George to exfoliate as his skin has been looking sallow, and she wants him to get acupuncture and reflexology too.” George’s response? He’d prefer to sleep. We’re with you, George… n
