Jim Carrey credits healthy diet for his youthful lookMarch 30th, 2008 - 5:06 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Mar 30 (ANI): Hollywood comedian Jim Carrey has revealed the secret behind his youthful look a healthy diet.
According to the 46-year-old actor, his childlike attitude coupled with a “veggies and protein” diet is what keeps him healthy and young.
“No wheat, no dairy for me. I go crazy once in a while and have a pizza… but I do believe that the best fuel for humans are (sic) veggies and protein. It makes you feel great,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
The Bruce Almighty star claims that his new diet and regular trips to an acupuncturist have helped him deal with bouts of depression.
“I tried dealing with it by taking (antidepressant) Prozac. It was good for a little bit, but it didn’t heal me. It didn’t get me to the bottom of my anger or frustration,” he said.
“It’s important to feel our feelings, and let things out to get to the bottom of things.
“It’s OK to say to your kid, Daddy is going to cry now.’ I take supplements. There are new (anti-depression) treatments not being offered to people.
“I am taking hydroxytryptophan and tyrosin - elements of the brain that are supposed to be there, but are short in a lot of people,” he added. (ANI)
