On the importance of consuming plenty of fats:
I think the idea that fat is bad is complete bull. Fat is an extremely important macronutrient – we need it for healthy hormone function, strong hair, skin and nails, not to mention our need for fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K. Plus it makes food taste delicious, and keeps us satiated. I am a huge advocate for healthy fat in our diets, and I wish it were less vilified. Where I feel we go wrong however, is the sources of fat that we choose to consume. When we eat large quantities of plant-derived oils such as palm seed oil, we throw out our ratios of Omega 3 to 6 to majorly favor Omega 6. This is not good; our diets should be skewed to favor Omega 3 as much as possible, in order to reduce inflammation, and maintain good general mental health. We want a 1.5:1 ratio ideally. Maintaining this ratio is tricky – vegetable oils are everywhere! Consuming high levels of fat from animal foods is not ideal either; a high intake of saturated fat can lead to heart disease and other complications down the line.
On what she eats:
I love avocado, olives and nuts. Walnuts and macadamia nuts in particular are a good hook up of omegas. When cooking I choose a high quality olive oil or avocado oil. If you eat fish, enjoy wild salmon regularly. A good, high quality algae oil is a great call for the vegans out there – just to make sure you hit your requirements. Plant-based food sources contain the precursor ALA, and it has a low conversion rate to the important DHA – so make sure you supplement here!
On preferring fats to carbs:
I eat a lot of fat in my diet. I tend to avoid refined carbohydrates, and I make up for it by eating a higher level of fat in my diet. I could never ever be a HCLF person – my digestion just isn’t strong enough for all those carbohydrate spikes! Every person is different, and it is up to you to find out how much of each macronutrient ensures you feel the best. Nut butters are delicious and a great travel snack. My only issue with them is to ensure that there aren’t any other oils, salt or sugar added. I also find sticking to single serves ideal, because that stuff is moreish!
On her motto:
Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants.
… says the 25 year-old Australian beauty.
On her daily diet as a Victoria’s Secret model:
’80 percent fruit and veg, 10 percent fat, 10 percent protein. I say an avocado a day, lots of nuts, lots of fish, and then just fruit and veg. I limit dairy and excess carbs basically. No processed food.’
On her trick to sticking to her diet:
‘I always carry cherry tomatoes with me. If I am hungry and food is far away, or flying, or in a non-vegan friendly environment, I make sure I have some tomatoes to eat.’
On her workout routine:
‘In New York I have an amazing trainer who does weight training in the gym with me and I love doing that kind of workout but then I’ll mix it up with reformer pilates, yoga, boxing classes, try and do something different all the time.’

On what she eats for breakfast:
Every day I go to Blacktop Coffee and get this pastry called kouign-amann with my black coffee. I wouldn’t say I am the type of girl who craves Doritos, but I definitely love a good cupcake sometimes. Or a croissant in the morning.
On her lunch menu:
Lunch is usually a salad or a sandwich. If I’m on set, I’ll have catering, but I’m well-behaved with that stuff. It’s easy to go crazy — they know how to feed you.
On her favorite food:
You know, I’m a carnivore. I really like to eat meat. I crave iron so I am definitely not the kind of person who you will often find eating a plain salad. I like to keep it really balanced to give my body energy and also be healthy.
On always eating out:
I never eat at home. Dinner is my time to be social and catch up with people. I love this Italian restaurant downtown called Bestia. It’s kind of fun, they have good cocktails and wine. If I’m trying to be a little healthier, there’s Café Gratitude downtown. There’s amazing sushi at this tiny place called Mako in Little Tokyo. And I also love uni. Anything with uni in it is great for me.
