Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have not been shy about being controversial, often considered “fake Royals” by the masses. After Queen Elizabeth’s passing, it seems the couple have been pushed back into the spotlight, and not because of Markle’s podcast.
In what follows we will avoid talking about his current situation in the media and instead we will take a closer look at his lifestyle both in the kitchen and in the gym. We’ll take a look at Markle’s favorite workout method, while looking at how she eats.
Meghan Markle does indeed follow a Vegan-like structure during the week but as it turned out, on the weekends Markle tends to deviate. We’ll also look at what she eats on the weekends and which foods are among her guilty pleasures.
Meghan Markle is a big advocate for yoga and Pilates
Timing is everything to Meghan Markle, and that’s especially true when it comes to her workouts. Markle incorporates it into her schedule by waking up earlier, among her favorite practices is a yoga routine.
As Markle revealed alongside Best health magazineNot only does the practice make her stronger, but it also improves her mental health,” There are so many benefits that come with practicing yoga. A few benefits of vinyasa yoga include increased flexibility and muscle strength, greater happiness, increased mental focus, greater ability to relax, decreased anxiety and better sleep.”
Sebastian Lagree, Markle’s celebrity trainer, would also discuss her fitness routine, which involves Pilates with lighter weights. According to his trainer, the advantage of Pilates is that the practice is easy to do just about anywhere and very easy on the joints.
When it comes to lifting weights, Meghan doesn’t focus on lifting 100 pounds over her head, but the goal is to use lighter weights and higher rep ranges. The focus is on her posture, given Markle’s line of work.
Markle’s workout seems to be simple, however, her diet is a bit more complex, especially for true vegans.
Meghan Markle follows a vegan diet… but not on weekends
First, we’ll give Meghan Markle credit for at least following a vegan structure for the week. However, when the weekend comes, Markle uses her ‘flexible vegan’ card and indulges in other foods like meat. This can be beneficial, as she will not be deficient in certain areas.
“I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little more flexibility with what I do on the weekends,” she told Best Health in 2015.
For Markle, this is done to not feel trapped and to have flexibility with her diet.
“But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I train the way I do, I never want to feel deprived. I feel like the second you do it, you start binging on stuff. It’s not a diet; it’s a lifestyle.”
Markle loves to cook and that’s especially true on the weekends. She has a long list of favorite meat proteins to eat on the weekends, when she’s not on a vegan diet.
“I’m a big fan of Sunday dinners. Whether it’s a lamb tagine, a braise or a hearty soup, the idea of meeting around a hearty meal with friends and family on a Sunday comforts me. I like to make casseroles on Sundays, like Filipino-style chicken adobo,” she told Hello Magazine.
Thanks to Markle for keeping things flexible in the kitchen unlike other Hollywood-style diets.
Meghan Markle likes to indulge herself with wine and fries
Creating rewards along the way is key, eating the same foods can get extremely repetitive and depressing over time. Markle, who is a big foodie, creates many rewards along the way, especially on the weekends. Among his favorite tricks is something as simple as fries, pasta and wine.
She revealed alongside Best health magazine“Fries – I could eat fries all day. And I love pasta. I love carbs – who doesn’t love carbs? Same goes for wine. Of course I’ll take that glass of wine – it’s delicious and I appreciate it.”
At the age of 41, it’s clear that Markle’s routine is working and more, as she seems to be aging backwards.
