Rafaeli opened up about her wellness to Hello! Magazine. She says that she doesn't believe in dieting, and just focuses on balance."I don't diet and I don't have an eating plan, but I like to eat healthily. I don't deny myself anything and there's nothing I wouldn't eat. I like desserts – I like food full-stop, but I exercise and I'm young, so everything keeps in check. I don't feel the need to be super skinny, but being in shape is important. But even if I wasn't in this industry I would still want to look after myself and be healthy and keep my body in good condition."
