Diet Details

Terminator Diet

Clarke’s Terminator diet was very restricted. She ate very little fat, almost no sodium, and had to count calories. She said basically everything she ate didn’t taste good.

Clean and Lean For Life

Clarke’s diet today is a lot more relaxed, although still very clean. Every meal contains protein, healthy fat and a vegetable. All foods are as close to their natural state as possible. Avoid processed foods. If there’s a long list of ingredients that you can’t pronounce, don’t eat it.

Stars: They’re Just Like Us

Clarke is very disciplined when it comes to diet, but she isn’t a robot and enjoys a treat every now and again, such as a glass of wine or a piece of chocolate cake.

Emilia Clarke’s Lifestyle

Worthy Sacrifice

Clarke adopted a puppy she calls Ted in 2020, and says the chaos he has added to her life is totally worth the sacrifice.
