Model Miranda Kerr, wife of actor Orlando Bloom, says she’s always been passionate about her health and wellness, telling Harper’s Bazaar she lives by the philosophy that “beauty starts from within and I make a conscious effort to fill my body with nutrients through the food I eat.” She credits her family for teaching her the “80/20” rule: 80% good, 20% indulgent. Kerr also sticks to the Dr. Peter D’Adamo Blood Type Diet. The diet uses blood groups to determine the best food choices a person should make, basing these options on the “immunologic relationships between specific foods and a person’s blood type and their role in controlling inflammation, versus traditional model of caloric restriction,” says Ann Quasarano, PR director for D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition. Critics of the diet argue there isn’t enough science to back up the recommendations. “I know of no plausible rationale behind the diet,” Dr. John Foreyt, a researcher at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston told WebMD.
