What do celebrities like to eat? With their access to upscale restaurants and personal chefs, they must enjoy foods that mere mortals can only fantasize about.
Then again, when you see their toned bodies, you imagine they live on smoothies and juices, with an occasional beautifully-presented but tiny meals.
While it is true that most celebrities follow a healthy lifestyle, they are humans after all – they also indulge in burgers and Mexican food from time to time.
Here is a list of celebrities’ favorite comfort foods and recipes to recreate at home.
#1 Chris Pratt
Chris is known for his unbelievable body transformation. “I actually lost weight by eating more food, but eating the right food, eating healthy foods.” Reportedly, he consumes 4,000 calories a day and lots of water, combined with insane trainings.
But while he must eat things like kale chips, when it comes to what he really loves, he chooses meat in all shapes and sizes.

#2 Gal Gadot
What does Wonder Woman eat in a day? Gal Gadot’s main purpose is to make sure her daughters eat healthy so she starts with a hearty breakfast comprised of eggs, fruit, green smoothies, and coffee.
The main meals in the family consist of fish and chicken, as well as lots of cooked or raw vegetables. When it comes to snacks she chooses fresh fruits & veggies and avocado toast. The former Miss Israel doesn’t restrain herself from burgers, chocolate, or ice cream but she is all about portion control.

When it comes to sweet treats, Gigi’s favorite is Grasshopper Pie ice cream.

In order to have a muscular body like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson you need to eat plenty of meat. Sirloin, chicken, and bison meat are on his daily menu, combined with either rice or baked potatoes and fresh salad.
