It's common knowledge that Gal Gadot is a badass bitch. Before starring as the first female lead superhero in "Wonder Woman," Gadot served in the Israeli army and modeled for Gucci. It also recently came out that Gadot was actually five months pregnant during the shooting of "Wonder Woman," and she still did all her own stunts (like, what?).

With all of her accomplishments, I figured this woman has to have a diet that helps keep her energy up, her muscles strong and her mind focused. I was curious to find out if Gadot's diet was as unrealistic as I feared, or if Wonder Woman was actually just like us. 

Surprisingly, her diet is actually pretty attainable. And because Gadot obviously included some fitness into her daily routine, I am also going to highlight her workout regime. Without further adieu, here is how to eat like Wonder Woman. 


Gadot starts the day with a protein-rich breakfasteggs with some fruit and coffee on the side. Thankfully, this meal is pretty easy to recreate without breaking the bank.

Now we're talkin' lean proteins and greens. Gadot loves to prepare fish with garlic, lemon, and thyme for a casual night in, and in her Marie Claire cover shoot, she was spotted eating a grilled chicken breast with chickpea cakes on the side. 

In addition, her trainer, Mark Twight, focuses heavily on 50/50 protein and veggie plates. You're gonna get that lean protein, but also the vitamins and minerals that you need. 


Wonder Woman recognizes the importance of balanced eating during snacks, so she fills up between meals on fruits and veggies like bell peppers, celery, cherry tomatoes, and avocado toast. This girl loves veggies in general — she tries to "make sure that around 30-40 percent of ... her diet is made of cooked or raw vegetables." Snacking colorfully, people.

Drink Up

In an interview with E!, Gadot said that she brought some balance into her life by "drink[ing] tons of water." She is known to drink at least a gallon of water a day, which has been known to improve your metabolism, among other health benefits. 


Before filming, Gal Gadot spent six hours a day in the gym. She loves TRX workouts "because everything's working your whole body," and she also does cardio intervals and boxing with Twight. 

Honestly, this 30 hours a week of exercise sounds a bit insane to me, but it can be replicated on a smaller scale. InStyle recommends "do[ing] 30 seconds of push-ups followed by a 30-second plank hold" four times every day in order to get Gadot's guns. 

Her Favorite Cheat Meals

Gadot feels strongly about wanting to "experience food," and not restricting anything from her diet. She focuses on the "measurements and quantity of the food" rather than cutting the food from her diet. She loves to eat burgers, and ice cream with chocolate. Same, girl, same. 

Guiding Principles

Don't overthink your diet. It's important to stay healthy, but you need to maintain a balance in your life. In short, Gadot says, "just give the food the respect and give yourself the respect to enjoy it." Food is good, and we gotta love it. 

Although we might not all have trainers or the ability to eat gourmet, Gal Gadot's diet is honestly more realistic than you think. Thanks to a balance of fresh fruits, veggies, lean proteins, lots of water, working out and a couple "cheat meals" here and there, I think it's safe to say that this is a healthy diet that proves Wonder Woman is a little more like us than we may have thought.
