Gabrielle Union's "Porn Diet" Isn't As Crazy As It Sounds

Celebrities go on diets that sound absurd to regular people all the time. Gabrielle Union's diet is different. It sounds strange at first, but it's actually pretty relatable. Gabrielle Union said that she is on a "porn diet" last night on Conan. A porn diet definitely seems like it would mean something like watching porn instead of eating when you feel hungry or only eating foods that people eat in porn (pizza delivered by a skimpily dressed man?), but it's actually quite different. Union said that her gym happens to have a lot of porn star patrons and she follows their lead when it comes to diet and exercise.

Union tells O'Brien, "I am blessed to work out at a gym that has a lot of adult entertainment actresses. A lot of porn gals. Salt of the earth, really sweet girls." O'Brien asks how she knows they're porn stars and Union jokingly responded, "I guess..." before admitting that she recognizes them saying, "Ya know, ya see things." 

Obviously a gym full of porn actresses isn't exactly commonplace, but what is relatable is that Union says she secretely competes with her fellow gym go-ers without their knowledge. "I'll be on the next [workout machine] going, 'You're not getting off before me!'" I've heard of other, non-porn diet people doing this and I'll admit I've had similar thoughts myself. I just maybe still get off before the other person...

Union goes on to say that she has stalked the porn stars to see what they eat. "I’ll follow them to, you know the gyms have like the juice bar, and I’ll watch to see what they’re ordering." Can't say I've ever heard of someone doing that, but my gym definitely doesn't have a juice bar so there's that. The self-proclaimed "ass scout" (her fave celebrity butt is Jessica Biel's, in case you were wondering) has found that the actresses tend to eat vegan food. So there you go. You might not be able to start the porn diet, but if you catch yourself sneakily competing the next time you work out, at least you'll know you and Gabrielle Union have that in common.
