Supermodel and new mum Miranda Kerr has given an insight into how she maintains her stunning figure and a healthy lifestyle.
The Victoria's Secret model took to her KoraOrganics blog recently to reveal the secret to her stunning figure is Doctor John D'Adamo's blood type eating plan as well as carefully selected supplements.
Doctor John D'Adamo's blood type eating plans claim that ABO blood type is the most important factor in determining a healthy diet, and has outlined distinct diets for people with blood types O, A, B and AB.
Miranda's type A diet eating plan includes a mostly vegetarian diet with sensitive type As being instructed to eat foods in a natural state, meaning organic foods are certainly on the menu.
"I am a blood type A and more often than not I eat specifically for my blood type," Miranda said.
"I also eat low-GI, high-alkaline foods, drink filtered water and eat mostly fresh produce and very little meat," Miranda said.Due to her little to no meat diet, Miranda shared her secrets to living with low iron levels.
"Just about all my life I have suffered from low iron (Anemia). As an A blood type I typically try to avoid meat (I eat it when I feel I need it, but basically I don’t eat it often). Instead I give my body the iron it needs by feeding it foods that are rich in iron," she said.
"The absorption of iron from food is influenced by multiple factors. One important factor being the form of the iron. Heme Iron is the iron that is found in animal sources and is highly available for absorption. Non-heme iron on the other hand, found in vegetable sources, is less available."
The 27-year-old, who acknowledged "that everybody is different so what works for me might not work for you", said she also believes in food supplements.
"I believe it is important to supplement our food to ensure our bodies have the nutrition required to remain healthy," she said.
"This is even more important if you do not eat certified organic foods and certified organic fresh produce."
She names a number of self-selected supplements including berry powder, Noni Juice and coconut oil, but insists this is not an advertisement for the products, but rather they are products she has chosen through her personal experience.
"Please note," she wrote, "I do not get paid by any of the companies to promote their product. I am sharing these supplements with you because I find them beneficial and believe they will assist you too!"Your say: Is the blood type diet just another celebrity fad, or does it have some benefits?
