The Beauty A-List Share Their Feel-Good Eating Habits

From Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr’s favorite green juices to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s intermittent fasting, it seems everyone is following a program dictating how, what and when we eat. Here, NEWBY HANDS discovers the varied healthy-eating habits of nine high-profile women

“I was doing intermittent fasting for a while, but I realized that because my schedule is so crazy and I don’t have regularity in life, I can’t stay on that,” says Dubroff. “I’m a yo-yo for food. I’ll be so healthy, where I’m eating only plant-based [foods] and no sugar for a while, and then I’ll go off it and I’m slamming ice cream and eating pizza. It’s just reality. I try to eat food that’s not highly processed, and I’m flexitarian, because I’m mainly vegetarian, but sometimes I need some meat when I feel depleted. I do generally try to keep the sugar and the dairy in check, though, because it ensures I get better sleep.”

Kate Moss, supermodel

“I don’t follow any particular diet, but I don’t eat very much meat these days, and I always like to start my day with a green juice,” says Moss. “I do [nutritionist] Rose Ferguson’s 5 Day Plan when she does them, too – you don’t fast, but you do have liquid-only days, and I always feel lighter in my body and clearer in my mind after doing it.”

“I believe in eating the whole egg, not just the white!” says Huntington-Whiteley, founder of Rose Inc. “I grew up in a household where nothing was restricted, so I don’t have any food rules, but if I’m trying to get into shape, I cut out refined sugar and gluten and see very quick results. I’m a big advocate of intermittent fasting – it was great for me after breastfeeding and I feel better and have more energy if I finish eating by 4pm each day. I don’t eat less, just in a more condensed time window.”

Dr. Barbara Sturm, aesthetic doctor

“I’ve been vegetarian since I was 16 – I just didn’t want to eat meat any more,” says Sturm. “Now, I’m super-healthy in what I eat and follow an anti-inflammatory diet. Recently, I went to the Vivamayr medical health resort for 10 days and tried Kinesiology testing, as I’ve always had digestive issues and stomach pain. They found out I had problems with gluten, histamine (found in fermented foods, and in avocados, eggplant and spinach) and dairy. Before, I was eating lots of tomatoes and avocado and spinach – but now I’ve cut them out, my stomach pains have totally gone. I’m not crazy about being gluten-free and I do still eat normal bread – I just don’t overdo it. As with everything in life, it’s about moderation and not being extreme.”

Tina Craig, founder of U Beauty

“In the mornings, I have a cup of organic matcha tea with almond milk and collagen powder, and half an avocado,” says Craig, founder of U Beauty. “I start power-eating at lunch, which usually consists of a chopped spinach or kale salad with chicken, or fish and pasta. I also snack all afternoon. I keep cauliflower crackers at my desk (not because I’m gluten-free, I just really love the taste of cauliflower), and have bowls of almonds and other nuts everywhere. Trader Joe’s makes these amazing truffle-flavored almonds – they’re my guilty pleasure, along with any variety of spicy chips, as I don’t eat refined sugar or sweets.”

Yasmin Sewell, founder of Vyrao

“I love Ayurvedic recipes and Ayurvedic cooking, and when I live by those sorts of recipes, I feel amazing. I cook a lot with ghee and beautiful Ayurvedic spices, and I definitely feel better with cooked, warm foods, so I try to avoid raw foods, especially around wintertime – they don’t work for my body or my immune system. I try to listen to my body; it will tell you what you need because you’ll crave it. I eat meat, and sometimes I just really need a good steak, but it’s about finding that balance. I can’t skip a meal as my blood sugar drops, so I often eat quite rich, dense meals, a few times a day.”

Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr, model and founder of Kora Organics

“I’ve noticed that the more I go towards fresh fruit and vegetables, the better I feel,” says Kerr, founder of Kora Organics. “I eat lots of potatoes for lunch and dinner (I love potatoes), but use an air fryer so it’s a little healthier. And I can’t live without celery juice; I’ve been drinking it for three years and it’s been life-changing for me – my husband and children all drink it, too. Anthony William’s book Cleanse to Heal is great, and since drinking celery juice, as he advises, it’s calmed down my digestive issues. My parents owned a steak house, so that’s a comfort food for me, and I do indulge every now and again. However, I feel much better when eating plant-based food. I lost my baby weight from eating lots of potatoes and bananas and drinking celery juice.”

Shani Darden, aesthetician

“I’m a bit of a weird eater, as I like to have salad for breakfast and always eat my dinner early, at 5pm or 5.30pm,” says Darden. “I’m not an exciting eater, but I love food and I eat quite a bit, except for sugar and pasta.”

“I follow The Plant Paradox eating program and have done for more than a year. It’s a book written by Dr. Steven Gundry, who advocates cutting out lectins (found in grains and legumes) for a diet that is very anti-inflammatory,” says Czech. “For breakfast, I have a berry mix with sheep or goats’ yogurt, or eggs and avocado, then sea bass or salmon with vegetables for lunch and dinner. More importantly, I cut out corn, cucumber and tomato with this program; within a week I had fewer headaches and felt less sluggish. As with gluten, not everyone has a sensitivity to lectins, but cutting them out has made a big difference to me.”
