Miranda Kerr's former chef reveals her supermodel diet secrets

Cake and curry are on the menu (occasionally)

When your looks are how you make a living, it’s understandable you have more motivation to keep your body in tip-top condition.

Take supermodel Miranda Kerr for example - with her strong, toned, slim physique, you’d be forgiven for thinking the former Victoria’s Secret model survived on a diet of sad kale smoothies, plain grilled chicken breast and seeds.

But you’d be wrong. According to her former chef, Kerr’s diet is all about moderation, and she does indeed enjoy curry, chocolate and cake from time to time.

Like many healthy people, Kerr follows the 80/20 rule - eating healthily 80 per cent of the time and indulging in a little of what she fancies the other 20 per cent.

But of course, most of the time Kerr sticks to a healthy diet which includes lots of fruit and vegetables, salmon and gluten-free pasta, according to Kate McAloon, who has also worked with Steven Spielberg, Courtney Cox and Gwyneth Paltrow.

“She does eat clean, she really believes in the 80/20 diet,” McAloon told the Australian Daily Telegraph.

“She is very health orientated and it works for her, she looks great.”

McAloon revealed that Kerr was a particular fan of her special curry and coconut torte, although what goes into those we do not know.

Since becoming a mother to her son, Flynn, Kerr’s cooking skills have also grown, according to McAloon.

It just goes to show you don’t have to deprive yourself of anything to stay healthy, fit and strong. It’s all about moderation.

At the end of the day, life’s too short not to eat cake or curry or chocolate, and those foods are just too delicious.

Following the 80/20 rule seems to be working for Kerr, so perhaps we should all take a leaf out of her book (just make sure the ratio is the right way round).
