Alice Eve’s Diet
To slim down for her role as Dr. Carol Marcus (and fit into her space suit), Eve subsisted on a diet of spinach and not much else for 5 months. She would have spinach all ways: in smoothies, steamed, and in salads. Aka a green cleanse, it was a pretty extreme way to lose weight and isn’t generally recommended. Left to her own devices, she eats pretty clean, except when she goes home for a visit. Then all bets are off.
- Low Carbs 15% 15%
- Low-Medium Carb 25% 25%
- Medium-High Protein 50% 50%
Strong to the Finish
Eve channeled her inner Popeye and ate spinach 3 times a day, starting with breakfast. Other ingredients in her morning smoothie included kale, beet root and apple.
Eve’s lunch was very light, often just some steamed spinach and a piece of fruit such as a pear.
Dinners for Eve were a study in green: more steamed spinach, green beans and maybe a few highlights with some mixed veggies. As for flavor, she only got a sprinkling of vinegar.
It Ain’t Easy Eatin’ Green
While spinach is a healthy choice, it’s far too limited. Eve’s green cleanse might work in the (very) short term, but for a healthy diet you can live with, more variety is needed.
Home Cooking Advantage
Eve was able to stick to her strict diet while working, but when she went to visit her parents following an injury, she chowed down on plate after plate of delicious home cooking.

Alice Eve’s Workout Routine
Take Care of Yourself
Eve says filming can take its toll on the body, so she does to keep hers in good shape.
One of Eve’s favorite forms of exercise is yoga. It keeps her flexible and youthful, and reduces stress.
Pavel Tsatsouline Protocol
Boat pose: An ab strengthener. Begin in seated position, knees bent, and lift your feet off floor, followed by your hands. This is half-boat. Straighten your legs if you can to make a V shape with your body.
Big Toe pose: From a standing position with feet 6” apart, bend forward, keeping spine and legs straight. Grab big toes with fingers and thumb, keeping gaze straight ahead.
Bow pose: Lying on stomach, knees bent, reach back with your hands and grab your ankles. Keep knees at same width as hips and lift your heels away, forming an archery bow shape with your body.
Extended hand-to-toe pose: Stand with hands on hips. Draw 1 knee up to your waist and lace fingers around shin. Grab big toe and extend leg as far as you can. Hold for 3-5 breaths then release. Repeat on opposite side.
Camel pose: Kneel on floor. With hands on hips, arch your back and lean back until your hands can grasp your heels. You can either raise your heels by tucking your toes in or keep feet flat on the floor for more of a stretch.
Four-Limb Staff pose: From a plank pose, lower your torso until your body is just a few inches off the mat. Keep legs straight, elbows into ribs and do not allow the low back to dip.
Eve on Self-Judgement

Eve has the condition called heterochromia, meaning her eyes are 2 different colors. Left is blue, right is green.
Follow Your Instincts
When it comes to style, Eve goes for what makes her feel good rather than what is strictly fashionable. Her daily go-to is a t shirt, jeans and Nike high tops.
Eve on the English Language
‘We’re divided by a common language even though we’re meant to have been from the same place. There is a definite shift when I get on the plane.’
Eve on Herself
‘I’m a girl’s girl, in all the ways you can be girlie. Nails and chats and gossip magazines…Did going to Oxford and reading “Paradise Lost” change that? No.’
Eve on Fashion
‘I follow my instincts, and if they don’t fall in line with the latest fashion, then good luck to everyone.’
Eve on Handbags
‘‘I change handbags all the time, but with Chanel, you can never go wrong. If you’re lucky enough to have one, carry it every day!’
