I have a blog post about Adriana’s nutrition and fitness and today I’m going to tell you all about Miranda’s diet and exercise routine.
Miranda is an Aussie model and mom that lives her best and healthiest life each and every day.
Let’s dive in and see how she does it.
THE MIRANDA KERR DIET
Miranda likes to keep things lean and low-carb. This means she actively avoids processed foods of any kind and does what she can to limit her intake of carbohydrates unless those carbs come from fruits and vegetables.
She also avoids caffeine. She doesn’t seem to need it and prefers to get her energy boost from the nutrients in the food she eats. She likes to eat food that she enjoys which also
But let’s take a quick look at some of her
Miranda starts her day off with a cup of hot water with lemon juice. She squeezes half a lemon into a mug and tops it off with hot water. Believe it or not, this is her coffee substitute.
The vitamin C gives her added energy and wakes up her digestive system for the rest of the day.
For the rest of her breakfast, she likes making smoothies. And her favorite smoothie is both simple and incredibly rich in nutrients.
She starts with a cup of almond milk and adds fresh papaya, spinach, raspberries, blueberries, and almond butter for protein. She also throws in the Kora Organics Noni Glow Skinfood supplement powder formulated to help her keep her skin looking its best.
When she feels like having a treat, she makes mini pancakes from banana, 2 free-range eggs, and about a half-cup of oatmeal. The ingredients get blended together and cooked in a skillet with a touch of coconut oil to brown the pancakes. Once done, she tops them with fresh raspberries and coconut nectar.
When she’s working or she’s extremly busy and has to eat out, Miranda looks for salads with lean chicken breast and tons of fresh vegetables. But when she has time to make one herself, she loves to make a more complex lunch.
She cooks a salmon filet until it’s moist yet flaky with fresh garlic, lemon, ginger, and turmeric. Then, she makes a side salad. The salad has a generous helping of chopped arugula, fresh seasonal sprouts, cucumber, purple cauliflower, and half an avocado.
Miranda makes her own dressing with apple cider vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and fresh lemon. Each of these ingredients is clean and helps your body break down the nutrients in the greens more efficiently. She makes sure to have plenty of water with her lunch and, if she needs an added boost, will add a squeeze of lemon juice to the water as well.
For dinner, Miranda loves making what can only be termed healthy comfort food. Her favourite recipe is slow-roast chicken. She starts with a whole chicken and adds onion, garlic, rosemary, turmeric, and…you guessed it…fresh lemon!
The chicken roasts in the oven at a low temperature for 7 hours. During the last hour, she makes mashed sweet potatoes. She leaves the peel on and chops them into inch-sized chunks. The sweet potatoes steam until tender and get mashed with a fork.
As a side, she makes a salad with red cabbage, fresh baby spinach, parsley, cilantro, diced cucumber, olives, chopped celery, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, and chunks of halloumi cheese. She typically uses the same dressing as her lunchtime salads.
There’s one surprising thing about the Miranda Kerr diet. It’s that she doesn’t snack much throughout the day. But this is because she eats larger portions of nutrient-dense foods.
On days when she’s really busy, she’ll pack fresh fruit like blueberries or apples, nuts, and almond butter to keep the munchies at bay.
You can also try these healthy snacks to curb your hunger until your next meal without derailing your progress.
THE MIRANDA KERR WORKOUT ROUTINE
Miranda is devoted to working out. She does it every day and likes to vary her workouts with one exception: she does at least half an hour of yoga every morning.
On other days, she’ll run through a Pilates routine to build lean strength with bodyweight exercises. But when she really wants to tone and get lean before a show, she works out with a personal trainer and does a lot of bodyweight exercises to help her stay lean and strong without bulking up.
She likes to target different muscle groups on different days, especially when she has an upcoming show.
Like many current and former Victoria’s Secret Angels, Miranda has rock-solid abs. And her routine is tough.
- Standard crunches – 30 seconds
- Heel touches – 20 seconds each side
- Leg circles – 30 seconds
- Superman – 40 seconds
- Plank – 2 reps at 30 seconds
- Side plank – 30 seconds each side
- Scissor kicks – 45 seconds
Repeat this circuit 2-3 times to really feel the burn. No rest!
Like most models, Miranda knows that keeping her butt toned is key to looking great on the runway. Her butt workout is intense, but it’s something that doesn’t need a lot of equipment. You can do it anywhere!
- Bridge with resistance band – 1 minute
- Fire hydrants – 30 seconds each side
- Split squats with free weights – 30 seconds each side
- Romanian deadlifts – 30 seconds each side
- Kneeling leg lift pulses – 30 seconds each side
- Lunges – 1 minute, alternating legs
- Plie squats – 1 minute
Do two round total.
Miranda’s cardio routine is fairly simple. She doesn’t do much in the way of HIIT training, but she loves going for walks and tries to make time for them every day. But when she needs an added boost of exercise, she’ll hit the pavement and go for a run.
For Miranda, running is both great cardio and a great way to de-stress. That brings us to one thing that sets her apart from most professional models.
MIRANDA VALUES MENTAL WELLNESS
For Miranda, no workout routine is complete without paying attention to the way she feels emotionally. Yoga helps her stay centered and loose for those hard workouts, but it’s not always enough to keep her grounded and centered.
She likes to meditate every day and uses it as a way to de-stress, unwind, and regain her focus.
The most important thing Miranda does is to make time for fun EVERY day. She believes that if she’s not having fun, she’s not doing something right.
The Miranda Kerr diet and workout routine is about as simple as they get. She focuses on eating clean, staying lean, and prioritizing the things that make her feel good. And if something doesn’t, she takes the time to change it.
That said, it’s not the fastest way to see killer results if you’re just starting your fitness journey. If you’re ready to transform your body, check out my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program. I’ll give you the tools you need to slim down, tone up, and feel great every day.
