Megan Fox’s Diet

When it comes to a Megan Fox diet, Megan eats relatively healthily and focuses on having five meals a day ( a five-factor diet).

Her diet focuses largely on egg whites, Japanese food, almonds, salmon as well as smoothies.

Breakfast

For breakfast, which Megan views as the most important meal of the day, she typically starts her morning with a cup of coffee, along with what gives her a good amount of energy and nutrients to deal with her super energetic kids.

Typically, that would be a high-protein breakfast that consists of an egg white omelet and fresh vegetables or low-fat Icelandic yogurt with fresh fruit and a handful of almonds.

Megan also has this favorite Red Smoothie that she likes, which consists of berries in season, Chai tea, a scoop of protein powder, and a touch of almond milk.

Lunch

For lunch, Megan enjoys Japanese food or salmon. She eats grilled or smoked salmon, but if she's not feeling fish, she will have grilled turkey or chicken breast.

Since her diet typically follows Paleo or Keto protocols, she will typically drizzle her salad with apple cider vinegar or extra virgin olive oil.

Snack

Her snack is simple and typically consists of either a protein shake or smoothie.

Dinner

If she hasn't had salmon for lunch, she will have grilled salmon for dinner with plenty of seasonal vegetables.

Otherwise, she might have salmon sashimi with some steamed edamame, a cup of miso soup, and a fresh cucumber salad.

Night Snack

Megan Fox will either have another smoothie made with seasonal fresh fruit, almond milk, and protein powder or almonds.

Typically in the evening, however, Megan will have fresh fruit before calling it a night.

Food She Avoids

Megan avoids processed foods and traditional junk foods. She follows a five-factor diet and focuses on consuming a beneficial high-protein meal.

She also avoids gluten and tries to stick to a keto/paleo routine.

She doesn't eat white foods as much as carbs don't make her feel good, and instead focuses on fruits and vegetables.

She also avoids refined sugar and hydrogenated oils and limits her food choices and indulgences when she is on a deadline.

Cheat days are not quite something Megan Fox believes in, but she does occasionally have comfort foods that she indulges in.

When she is trying to lose weight, however, she avoids cheat days altogether.
