Washington, July 24 (ANI): Mexican beauty Salma Hayek has revealed her secret to having one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood.

“I’ve been doing juice cleanses for 15 years,” quoted her as saying.

And now the curvy actress has collaborated with pal and professional juicer Eric Helms to create Cooler Cleanse, a three or five-day juice detox delivery program.

“If I’ve been indulging in rich foods, a cleanse is a wonderful way to hit the reset button,” said the ‘Grown Ups’ star.

The two worked with several New York-based nutritionists and vegan chefs to develop the juice and raw-food menus, opting to only use premium-grade, organic and sustainably-grown ingredients.

To begin the juice cleanse — which costs 58 dollar per day — detoxers eliminate processed foods, caffeinated drinks, alcohol, dairy products and sushi.

Those on the program would receive a home delivery of six drinks — including almond milk and watermelon lime — that add up to less than 1,200 calories a day.

“I always lose weight,” said Hayek, who complements her cleanse by doing light yoga.

But Helms, who owns NYC’s Juice Generation, mentioned that weight loss isn’t the only benefit of a cleanse.

“You’ll have renewed energy,” he said.

“My skin glows when I finish day three. And it inspires me to think about what I put in my body,” Hayek added. (ANI)
