Slipping into the skin-tight leather Catwoman suit is serious business, so to prepare for her role in The Dark Knight Rises, Anne Hathaway kicked up her healthy eating plan with help from Jackie Keller, board certified health coach, nutritionist and founder of Nutrifit, who worked with Hathaway for almost a year while filming the latest Batman movie.

Though the star joked on Chelsea Lately about subsisting on “kale and dust” to fit in the suit, Keller made sure to get adequate protein in Hathaway’s diet to build lean muscle after her intense workouts.”It wasn’t about losing extreme amounts of weight,” says Keller. “You can eat really well and still achieve amazing results if you’re eating the right foods.” Read on to learn more about the Catwoman diet from Keller herself.

What kind of changes from Anne’s vegetarian diet did you have to make for her role as Catwoman?

“We made sure she had adequate protein to get lean. For the Catwoman body, she needed to build more muscle and make sure she didn’t waste away under rigorous training. Her diet consisted of anti-inflammatory foods and components of the Mediterranean diet.”

What was her daily meal plan like?

“Anne ate three meals and three snacks, adding up to about 1500-1800 calories per day. She had about a cup of protein like legumes or pan-fried tofu at every meal.”

Read on for Anne’s meal plan and how you can incorporate this diet into your routine:

“Here’s an example of a day’s meals:

Breakfast: Autumn Oatmeal
Morning Snack: Chocolate High Energy Bar
Lunch: Swiss Chard Frittata w/Garden Carrots
Afternoon Snack:  Apple & Almonds
Dinner: Vegetarian Chicken Patty & Brown Rice with Spinach and French Onion Soup
Dessert: Rocky Road Popcorn Balls
Evening Snack: Pear & Cashews
Smoothie: Chocolate Power Smoothie”

What foods did Anne insist on adding to her diet?

“She likes dessert, so she ate dark chocolate, which is high in antioxidants. A small square a day is actually good for your heart. Make sure it’s 70% cacao to get the most benefits.”

How can women without the big-screen budget or deadline follow a similar eating plan?

“Avoid processed and refined foods, like white bread. Add ingredients with monounsaturated fats to your diet, like olive oil, salmon, sardines and nuts. They’re high in omega-3 fatty acids. Eat more dark leafy greens and bright red and orange vegetables, which are rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant. Drinking green tea will also give you an antioxidant boost. It’s not about eating less; it’s about eating the right foods. You won’t reach your goals if you’re not eating well.”

    Interesting consider Anne herself said she did a 6 day, 500 calorie detox that was mainly hummus and radishes. Hmmm…..

    TO be honest, her meals sound healthy and yummy, not restrictive at all. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4XxPyF1fPQ&feature=plcp

    We were the first to showcase the Beats By Dre kristin collection with you in August of 2009. Since then, the Kristin collection has turned into one of the most coveted and acclaimed lines by Beats. Back in October of last year, Vlad and I previewed Beats By Dr Dre’s Spring collection, in which the Kristins were well represented.
    For Spring 2011 the Monster Beats Norge takes center stage in their line yet again.Nye Beats By Dre still offers their Poppy collection for those that want the glitz and fun, their monogram bags for those that want to sport the brand’s recognized logo, but the Kristin collection fits into its own sleek and refined category that I absolutely appreciate and adore.It is the many options that make the Kristin Collection my Beats By Dre for this week.
