The outstanding ballerina and choreographer, choreographer and film actress Maya Plisetskaya, whose diet retained excellent physical shape until the end of her life and was a recognized standard of femininity and grace. The prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theater never hid the fact that she denied herself many of her favourite foods and dishes. For example, a great artist loved beer with fish, but she could not often afford it. We will find out what diets are and how modern ballet celebrities eat.
Anastasia Volochkova is a Russian ballerina, dancer and social activist, People's Artist of Karachay-Cherkessia and People's Artist of North Ossetia-Alania. Laureate of the Serge Lifar International Competition, winner of the Benoit Dance prize, singer, actress.
Anastasia's diet is based on green vegetables and unsweetened fruits. As sources of protein - seafood and eggs, the artist have long abandoned meat.
Healthy food refrigerator. Even with a very busy training schedule and physical activity, I always eat very lightly. And the less I eat, the more energy I add. In my diet, lettuce leaves, hot vegetable soups and boiled soft-boiled eggs. Sometimes a little boiled chicken without salt. " I signed the photo of Volochkova.
The daily calorie content of Volochkova's menu does not exceed 1700 kcal. And this despite the daily exhausting workouts. Anastasia sits at table 4 times a day. Meals - fractional and separate: carbohydrates separately, proteins - separately. This relieves the body of unnecessary stress and does not contribute to the deposition of extra pounds. Evening portions are microscopic - up to 100 grams.
For example, an artist might eat one egg with lettuce leaves for dinner. All Anastasia's "food waste" is strictly prohibited: soda, fast food, muffins, smoked meats and sausages in her house are not and cannot be. And every day - strength training in the gym, exercises at the machine, regularly - baths and hot tubs.
Galina Potdykova - Bolshoi ballet dancer, choreographer. In 2001 she graduated from the Moscow State Academy of Choreography and was accepted into the Bolshoi Ballet Company. Currently, she is a teacher-choreographer.
Galina admits that in her childhood and adolescence, she did not follow the diet too much, she could afford to overeat doughnuts, milkshakes, and buns. Understanding and control came with age. This, firstly, was facilitated by the control weighing in the school. If the scales showed an advantage, you had to forget about any indulgences to your beloved, and for a long time. It was a real test for nerves. Secondly, respect for your partner. Ballet dancers perform in pairs, which means that the extra pounds of a partner will interfere with productive work for both. Finally, says Potdykova, the ballerina herself will not want to go on stage if something is wrong.
Galina says that it is really difficult for ballerinas to get better - constant rehearsals, and no one cancelled chores. When you don't have time to sit down, there is little chance of gaining weight. It was not always possible to eat a full meal either, Galina between rehearsals ran into the buffet and grabbed coffee with chocolate. That's all the food! Now the artist has three sons, a lot of work and movement, so she does not gain even a gram.
