She Drinks Her Fruits and Veggies


Vicky is all about drinking her nutrients so she doesn't have to eat fruits and veggies. "I love waking up in the morning and having a juice, it's a great way to start off your day. I feel like I've managed to get loads of fruits and veggies into my diet in a very small space of time. I'm all for protein shakes and juices. Plus, if you whack spinach into a protein shake, you don't really feel like you're drinking it. I'm all for sneaking fruits and veggies into my body any way that I can," she told Closer


She Doesn't Follow a Set Meal Plan

Vicky doesn't eat the same thing every day. "My life and schedule are super unpredictable so having a set meal plan is really difficult. I often find I just have to roll with the punches rather than enjoy a set routine," she told Women's Health. "I firmly believe that variety is the spice of life and it's good to keep your body on its toes." If she's really trying to be "focused," she will rely on a meal delivery service.


She Focuses on Burning More Calories Than She Consumes

Vicky keeps her diet simple: She focuses on burning more than she consumes. "I know a lot of people advocate carb cycling but for me I keep things quite simple – on days I don't train I just eat slightly fewer calories," she told Women's Health. "It's not something I do proactively, but it's more just a case of when I'm not training I'm just not as hungry. However, this is entirely subjective and I always try and listen to what my body wants."


She Avoids Refined Sugar and Simple Carbs

Vicky also avoids everything processed. "I do avoid refined sugars and simple carbs like white bread as there's just no need for them and they make me feel rubbish and lethargic. The only exemption to this is alcohol – and I'll never give that up entirely. Life is for living!" she revealed to Women's Health. 


She Eats Healthy 80 Percent of the Time

Vicky follows the 80/20 diet. "I try not to exclude any major food groups as a way to guarantee that I want something is to say I can't have it," she added to Women's Health. "I train when I can, eat healthily 80 percent of the time, combat hunger pangs by carrying nuts and berries in my handbag as well as protein shakes," she continued. What is her cheat food? "I love Haribo and wine and I'm definitely not about to live in a world where they don't feature in my life – balance is my mantra!"


She Hydrates

Vicky drinks three liters of water per day along with juices and smoothies and green tea. The Mayo Clinic recommends that women drink a minimum of 11.5 cups of water per day, and men, 15.5 cups. "By consuming the minimum recommendation of water, you're helping your body function better and improving your overall health. Read tips and a recipe if you have difficulty drinking enough water daily," they say.


She Walks

Vicky also loves walking for fitness. "My life coach always tells me to get out into nature with the trees and to get some fresh air," Vicky told Closer. "I never really put much weight on it until I got my dog, Milo, and just getting out for an hour every day taking him on his walk makes me feel much happier, healthier and more balanced. I advocate fresh air for everybody."


She Does Pilates

Vicky loves zero gravity pilates. "After being on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, I really looked at the way I trained. All of the things I'd been doing beforehand were weightlifting and more of the functional stuff. For a while, I wasn't really able to do that because I was quite badly injured," she told Closer "I looked at alternative ways that were less intense on the joints and when I found zero gravity pilates, I completely fell in love with it."
