Blake Lively just revealed even more secrets

Blake Lively just revealed even more secrets about her diet while filming The Shallows. " I did no gluten and no soy," she said in an interview. "Once you remove soy, you realize you're eating no processed foods. So that's basically what I did. No processed foods and then working out." She also went on to explain that not eating soy was the most difficult part of the diet for her. "[It] seems like, 'Oh, that's really easy to cut that out,' but then you realize, there's soy in everything. Like, everything you eat, there is soy in it. Even if it's healthy, Whole Foods organic stuff, there's always soy in it."

Blake's movie The Shallows came out about a month ago and whether you've seen it or not, what you should know is that Blake. Looks. Great. The actress filmed the movie just eight months after giving birth to her first child, James, and she wears a bikini in basically every scene. Her trainer Don Saladino revealed the diet plan Blake followed during filming and it's actually pretty doable!

1) Don't count calories: "I don't think putting someone into a caloric deficit, meaning restricting their calories, is the right thing to do," Saladino tells Cosmo. Blake trained her metabolism to burn more efficiently, which you can't do by starving yourself.

2) Only eat nutrient-dense, high-quality food: Blake was breastfeeding during filming, so she wanted to make sure she was putting the best foods in her body. Saladino had her eating "organic, balanced meals consisting of proteins, vegetables, fruits, slow-burning starches like sweet potato, and getting healthy fats like avocado, coconut oil, and grass-fed butter."

3) Start the day with a glass of water: The first thing Blake did when she woke up was drink a glass of water. For breakfast, "Blake might make herself a couple of eggs cooked in coconut oil, and she might throw some fresh vegetables in there," Saladino reveals. "If she's really hungry, because the human body changes all the time, she may add some gluten-free oats with some fruit. Early in the day, a big priority is hydrating, feeding her food with proper nutrients, which balances her sugar levels, and then not depriving of everything she loves."

4) Follow the 80/20 rule: Saladino explains, "80 percent of the week, you're really good, and 20 percent you leave for error and having fun." For Blake, that was pizza and pasta. Same, girl.
