Kate Middleton’s Slim Figure Comes From Eating This 1 Meal

Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, and today, she’s known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Her royal title also means she has a lot of responsibility, and that can make it difficult for her to remember to take care of herself. Between being a royal and the mother of three children, the duchess probably has little time to spend thinking about what she’s going to eat. But she reportedly stays healthy by relying on this one type of meal.

Kate enjoys cooking with her family

Prince William and Kate Middleton might be two of the world’s most famous people, but they still love to spend time doing activities regular people do. The couple share three kids: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, and one of the best parts of their lives is spending quality time with the little ones. While at an engagement once, Kate said that her children love to cook together; homemade pizzas and salads are some of their favorite meals. Though the duchess eats healthy, she likes to indulge, too.

They admittedly order takeout on occasion

Will and Kate also have the same guilty pleasures as most others: They love to order takeout. Though they have private chefs for most meals and enjoy home cooking with the kids for others, there are also plenty of nights when they decide they simply want to call up their favorite takeout spot and order a bunch of unhealthy food — and we don’t blame them. The two love to order curry dishes some nights and bum it with pizza on other nights (clearly this family has a love for pizza). However, most takeout places don’t deliver to the palace, nor would the palace want them to, so Will and Kate typically have to send someone out to get the food.

The duchess eats plenty of raw dishes, such as watermelon salad

Though Kate loves her share of fatty foods, eating healthy is also very important. And she relies mostly on raw dishes to make sure she’s getting plenty of nutrients in her diet. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Kate loves watermelon salad. She also reportedly eats plenty of gazpacho, goji berries, tabbouleh, and ceviche, all of which provide various benefits to the body, such as clearer skin. These unprocessed, uncooked dishes mean Kate is getting the maximum amount of nutrients from every ingredient.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron of Action on Addiction, attended the first annual gala dinner in recognition of Addiction Awareness Week. Before the dinner, The Duchess of Cambridge met former Action on Addiction clients Jay Otty and Melanie Bennett, who worked to prepare food for the gala dinner. Jay is a key member of the ‘front of house’ staff at @Brink_Liverpool – Action on Addiction’s ‘dry bar’ in the city. He has worked in the hospitality industry for seven years, having now been clean and sober for nine years. Melanie says that Action on Addiction’s Self-Help Addiction Recovery Programme, which taught her coping mechanisms and new behaviours, and started the grieving process for her father which she had been blocking for ten years, helped saved her life. Speaking at the dinner, The Duchess said: "What’s remarkable about Action on Addiction is that it goes beyond helping those who are suffering on the courageous journey into recovery – it also lends direct support to the children and families affected by addiction – for as long as it takes." Action on Addiction is the only UK addictions charity that works across all the areas of research, treatment, family support and professional education. The aim of Addiction Awareness Week is to provide a platform for focused conversations about the many different facets of addiction, to enable a wide range of organisations to engage with people and families who may be affected by addiction, and to raise public awareness of the far-reaching and negative effects of addiction. The ultimate aim is that as honest but inspirational stories are shared, those affected by addiction will then feel more able to take the necessary steps to access help, hope and freedom from their addiction. @ActionOnAddiction #AddictionAwarenessWeek

Kate Middleton relies on very specific foods to stay fit.

She also reportedly has a low carbohydrate intake  

Many people who follow Kate’s eating habits are aware that she has always been a fan of the Dukan Diet. Kate reportedly sticks with something similar, though she doesn’t appear to follow the Dukan Diet strictly. The diet mostly calls for very few carbohydrates, supplemented by plenty of lean proteins, vegetables, and healthy fats. Kate reportedly starts her day with healthy shakes containing some variation of spinach, kale, cilantro, and blueberries, all of which provide the body with antioxidants and essential nutrients. Since she’s constantly on the move, Kate needs to keep herself healthy in order to make sure she’s always feeling her best for all of those royal engagements.
