To be clear, Katie has never really been out of shape, but the 39-year-old has really morphed into a serious warrior—thanks to her role in the upcoming thriller, Doorman. The actress will play an ex-marine, which convinced her to amp up her fitness routine by incorporating heavier weight than she was used to.
“I was a five-pound weight person, and now I can do 15, 20,” Katie boasted.
But that’s not all she’s done to whip her body into tip-top condition. She’s also taking up boxing, which she said was “a fun, empowering workout.” She added that it “puts me in a much calmer place.”
But as any fitness buff would tell you, a great workout must be paired with an equally amazing diet. Insiders revealed to OK! that she’s very specific about what she eats. Specifically, she’s maintained a “high-protein, low-carb diet.” Like any human, though, she’s had cravings from time to time. Her vice? Mexican food. Even still, “she’ll eat only half a quesadilla.”

Katie’s diet and fitness regimen may seem daunting to some, but she has had a great motivation for it—her 12-year-old daughter Suri (with ex Tom Cruise). The insider concluded, “Katie has every reason to stay healthy. She’s teaching Suri about loving yourself.”
