Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, who is now 47 years old and has four children, is admired by many for her impeccable style and slim figure. The royal follows the Danish Diet, a healthy meal plan that helps her stay in such good shape.
Crown Princess Mary reportedly follows a meal plan called the Danish Diet.
Following the meal plan, the beautiful royal eats a lot of oily fish and root vegetables, as well as potatoes and only consumes one type of bread.
It is typical for danish to eat a lot of oily fish such as salmon, which is the base of the royal’s meal plan.
The diet follows a lower carb intake and a higher intake of healthy fats such as nuts, protein or seeds.
Root vegetables and potatoes are also included, and Rye bread is “a staple”.
“People living in Denmark tend to eat more fish, especially oily fish like salmon and less meat than a typical Western diet.
“In the ‘Danish diet’, the emphasis is on high quality meats when meats are eaten – and lean options.
“The Danish diet includes fruit and encourages snacking on berries, which are high in antioxidants that can protect against disease,” dietitian Lyndi Cohen told FEMAIL.
“It also includes plenty of root vegetables like carrots, parsnip and potatoes, while rye bread is a staple food in the diet – principally because it is much higher in nutrients like the B group vitamins, Iron, phytochemicals and magnesium.”
It is reported Princess Mary only eats one type of bread.
“Rye also contains considerably more fibre than white options, which can support a healthy and heart health,” said Lyndi.
“The ‘Danish diet’ is really sensible.
“Include the skin, bake them instead of frying and stick to about half to one cup per day to help you get a balanced mix of nutrients from other foods.”
However, Lyndi clarified the ‘Danish diet’ doesn’t allow crisps or big portions of chips.
“The Danes are more likely to enjoy baked potato or a homemade potato salad than hash browns,” she said.
Another royal who follows a very specific diet plan is Queen Letizia, who eats the same breakfast food every morning.
