Seymour opened up about her diet in an interview with Closer Weekly. She says that she usually only eats one meal a day. If she does eat again, it's a smaller meal. "I have one meal a day, usually at lunchtime. If I eat in the evening I'll eat very, very lightly." A study in Nutrition Reviews states that this approach to eating has a lot of benefits. "Studies examining short-term fasting reveal important information about metabolic changes that may occur during the brief fasts used in intermittent fasting protocols. These metabolic changes may be the basis for the benefits seen in individuals who follow an intermittent fasting program."

"I don't really eat red meat or animal fat. I eat a little bit of chicken. Mostly I eat fish, often salmon. I will have pasta in smaller amounts, but I never have any bread in the house."


She Walks

In an interview on the talk show, Loose Women, Seymour shared some of her favorite workouts. "I take walks on the beach," she says. According to Harvard Health, walking has a lot of benefits. "Harvard researchers looked at 32 obesity-promoting genes in over 12,000 people to determine how much these genes actually contribute to body weight. They then discovered that, among the study participants who walked briskly for about an hour a day, the effects of those genes were cut in half."


She Does Pilates

Seymour also said that she's a fan of Pilates in her Loose Women interview. Pilates has a lot of benefits. Better Health states, "Pilates is a safe and effective method of rehabilitation and exercise that focuses on muscular balance, improves strength and flexibility…Pilates can be an aerobic and non-aerobic form of exercise. It requires concentration and focus, because you move your body through precise ranges of motion. It requires concentration in finding a centre point to control your body through movement. Each exercise has a prescribed placement, rhythm and breathing pattern. In Pilates, your muscles are rarely worked to the point of exhaustion, so there is not always sweating or straining, just intense concentration. The workout consists of a variety of exercise sequences that are performed in low repetitions, usually five to ten times, over a session of 45 to 90 minutes. Floor based exercises performed on a mat and specialised equipment for resistance are often used."


She Gardens

One of Seymour's secrets to eating healthy? Growing her own food. She tells Closer that she loves to garden, and that she grows a bunch of vegetables. "We grow everything. We eat it all or give it away. Nothing goes to waste." The Mayo Clinic states that gardening has a lot of benefits. "It's been shown to lighten mood and lower levels of stress and anxiety. It's very gratifying to plant, tend, harvest and share your own food. Routines provide structure to our day and are linked to improved mental health. Gardening routines, like watering and weeding, can create a soothing rhythm to ease stress."
