Miranda Kerr grew up on a farm in Australia. Her mother was only 18 when she gave birth and had to work so Kerr spent a lot of time with her grandmother. At age 13, a friend entered her in a model competition which she won, but Kerr wasn’t especially interested in modeling and chose to finish her studies before trying it out as a career. In the early 2000s, she moved to New York where she scored runway gigs and magazine ad campaigns. She was a model on the TV show Project Runway and she also made a guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother. In 2007, Kerr became the first Australian to be signed as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She has been on many Sexiest Woman Alive lists and has appeared on Forbes list of top-earning models since 2010. She has also written a couple of self-help books aimed at teens and created a skincare and heath supplement line called Kora Organics. Kerr has one child with Orlando Bloom and 2 with her current husband, Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel. She has millions of followers on social media. Kerr is 5 feet, 9 inches tall and weighs about 117 lbs.
Miranda Kerr’s Diet
Kerr has always been interested in healthy eating and she holds a certificate in nutrition. She follows Dr. Peter D’Adamo’s Bloody Type Diet because she says it works for her. Kerr eats a lot of fresh organic vegetables and fruit, salmon and a little free-range chicken from time to time. For the most part, she avoids caffeine, red meat, gluten and dairy. Instead of coffee, she has hot water with lemon first thing in the morning, and she uses a lot of fresh herbs and spices in her cooking. She also drinks plenty of alkaline water each day. If she cuts loose and has pancakes with her kids, they’re still pretty healthy, her recipe being eggs, oatmeal and bananas.

When Life Gives You Lemons…
Kerr reaches out with both hands and grabs them. She starts her day with fresh lemon juice in hot water that she says is great for digestion and gives her body a boost with antioxidant vitamin C. She flavors much of food with lemon: salmon, salad, soup, you name it, she adds lemon to it.
Power Up With Vitamins
Kerr follows up her lemon water with a smoothie made with almond milk, fresh fruit and a dose of her own Kora Organic skin food supplement which contains Noni extract, acai, blueberry and matcha green tea.
Light & Lean
A typical lunch for Kerr is a piece of salmon seasoned with spices and more of her beloved lemons. Her salads are made fresh with things like sprouts and purple cauliflower and avocado. Kerr’s dressing is a homemade blend of olive oil, still more lemon, apple cider vinegar and a dash of sea salt. Dinner is similar lean protein and more greens, such as a slow-roasted chicken, a vegetable soup and a 10-ingredient salad (with lemon juice, of course).
Kerr follows the 80/20 principle of eating healthfully 80% of the time and indulging her taste buds and cravings for the other 20%. Some of her faves are Indian curries, chocolate, and cake.
