Blake Lively Ryan Reynolds

The 28-year-old plays a surfer left to fend off a shark in the gripping new action movie, and to transform her body to look like a health-obsessed medical student, she radically altered the types of food she was eating by adopting a form of paleo diet, which is thought to consist of the kinds of meals early humans ate while hunting and gathering thousands of years ago.

“It (filming The Shallows) was eight months after I had a baby," she tells U.S. news outlet Extra, referring to the birth of her daughter James in December, 2014. "It was such an undertaking, 'cause your body changes so much, not just for vanity's sake, but I had to be strong to keep up with it.

"It was my job to train. No gluten, no soy, and then no processed foods. I had butter, I had sugar, I had all that stuff. It was just making my own stuff. I guess it was close to paleo... it was nice to eat clean like that.”
