Easily one of the most beautiful faces on television, Aussie actress Radha Mitchell gives every appearance in shows "Sugar and Spice", "Neighbours", "Blue Heelers", "Phoenix", "GP" and "The Flying Doctors" her trademark easy charm and megawatt smile. Not only is 5 foot 5, blue-eyed model a vision in the small screen, so is she in real life, with her pretty features and svelte physique, which she has attained through her healthy diet and exercise routine.
“Yes. I want to see fat, sloppy actresses in good parts. That said, I’m not comfortable with the idea that one day I’m going to be a saggy old lady onscreen, that’s part of my motivation to lose weight. I’m quite happy and comfortable with my body. But, I mean, I’ve never walked around naked in front of people, not even on the beach — I always wear a top and a bottom,” she shares.
Radha Mitchell’s diet is the vegetarian diet which she has been practicing for years.
This kind of diet involves eating plant-based foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
Since the vegetarian diet primarily focuses in eating non-meat food sources, meals that the dieter eats contain less fat and cholesterol and generally involve a lot of fiber.
Radha Mitchell’s diet can still help achieving weight loss as long as she consumes the allowable foods or meals. At the same time, this kind of diet comes with a lot of health benefits such as lowering cholesterol levels, prevention of arterial clogs, lessening the chances of experiencing heart problems, and a lot more.
For Radha Mitchell’s exercise, she does yoga, particularly Ashtanga and Iyengar. This kind of exercise is a set of physical practices that involves gentle stretching, proper breathing exercises, plus progressive deep relaxation meant to relax the body and mind.
At the same time, it strengthens, elongates and increases the flexibility of the muscles in various parts of the body. Ashtanga yoga is referred to as a more rigorous form of yoga also known as power yoga, while Iyengar yoga primarily focuses with proper body alignment.
"Oh I do adore yoga." She says fondly. "It has a lot of benefits, and really helps with destressing and elevating mood."
