The former chef of Victoria’s Secret supermodel, Miranda Kerr, has revealed her diet secrets- and no it’s not completely absent of delicious fat foods.
Some diet secrets of Miranda Kerr, the Victoria’s Secret supermodel have just been revealed by her former chef, Kate McAloon. She follows the popular 80/20 dieting rule, as many people do, where 80 percent of her meals are healthy, balanced meals, and 20 percent of the time she indulges in whatever she likes to eat.
Kate McAloon, who also worked with Courtney Cox, Gwyneth Paltrow and Steven Spielberg, said that the healthy portion of Miranda’s diet consists of lots of veggies and fruits, gluten-free pizza and salmon.
“She does eat clean, she really believes in the 80/20 diet,” McAloon said. “She is very health orientated and it works for her, she looks great.”
She said the supermodel is a special fan of her“curry and coconut torte,”the ingredients of which are a McAloon secret.
Body Image And Dieting
It is important to shed light on a couple of issues. In Western culture, maybe particularly in female culture, many young girls and women have been made to feel that first, they have to be super skinny in order to feel good about themselves, and secondly, if you do feel you have to lose weight, you have to starve yourself to do so.
On the first issue, other than the false idea that skinny is better- at least aesthetically speaking - many psychologists and holistic wellbeing experts have warned against the idea of viewing your physical image as the primary source of confidence and happiness. Experts have emphasized that it is important to distinguish between dieting in order to improve your overall health and dieting to make sure you look acceptable, as one can lead to true mental wellbeing, and the other to anxiety and low-self esteem.
On the second issue, once you’re sure you’re dieting for the right reasons, and it is a health requirement for you to lose weight, Miranda’s diet comes to show that starving yourself and keeping all your favorite foods at bay is not a necessity in getting healthy. Recent studies have also shown that having frequent breaks in your diets causes people to lose more weight, but makes them gain less weight back after stopping.
