Unsurprisingly, it takes a lot of hard work to get a body like Miranda Kerr. From her daily commitment to yoga to her strict sugar-free diet, we have rounded up the supermodel’s food and fitness secrets to understand how she keeps her figure in such great shape.
Kerr revealed to Australian Vogue last year that she starts the day with a hot water and lemon followed by a green juice, before eating eggs or avocado on gluten free toast. She will then have a chia seed, goji berry and raw cacao smoothie a few hours later. The model told Body & Soul Australia that she will sometimes have a protein shake first thing followed by, “Eggs over easy, avocado, sauerkraut, sea salt and macadamia nut oil”. When Kerr revealed her bikini body secrets to Elle US, she stated that her cold-pressed green juice is made up of “kale, spinach, cucumber and celery”.
In her interview with Body & Soul, Kerr said her lunch would usually comprise of grilled chicken and salad. Her former trainer, Justin Gelbrand told Women’s Health And Fitness that he recommends his models eat either chicken or fish salad with a side of fruit for lunch.
Gelbrand suggests sashimi with brown rice as a great option for dinner and recommends avoiding soy but sticking to chicken, fish, turkey and vegetables. The model told Body & Soul that a typical dinner would consist of, “Quinoa salad with chicken cooked in coconut oil and turmeric, with a spinach and walnut salad”. She also added that, in general, she tries to avoid sugar and wheat.
Kerr said in the same interview that she loves blueberries, almonds, goji berries or an apple with some almond butter. She told Your Fitness, “I always try to carry healthy snacks with me that are easily transportable, like fresh fruit, nuts and seeds”. In addition to this, she drinks two to three litres of alkaline water every day.
When it comes to indulging, her trainer told Women’s Health and Fitness, “Believe it or not, I advise my clients to eat a little bit of dark chocolate or ice cream once or twice a week, to ensure they don’t splurge and start living with these indulgences every day”.
Kerr meanwhile told Your Fitness, “Sometimes you can’t avoid eating something that isn’t so healthy if that is all that is on offer, but I try to make sensible choices most of the time, so I don’t give myself a hard time if I have something a little naughty”. She also once confessed to Body & Soul that she can’t resist her grandmother’s pavlova.
The model revealed to Elle US that she likes to work out in the morning, rather than the evening and told Your Fitness that she tries to do at least half an hour of yoga a day and will then add either Pilates or strength training with weights and resistance bands to elongate and tone her muscles. She told Body & Soul, “I like to exercise every day, but I mix it up. Sometimes I’ll go for a walk or a run, or I’ll do Pilates or resistance training. I may even just put some music on and let Flynn dance around while I hold the plank position for 10 minutes to strengthen my core.”
