The keto diet consists of eating foods that are low in carbs but high in fat. For Laura, who hates “to call anything a diet”, keto is a part of a healthy lifestyle that also includes doing regular exercise.
Laura continued: “But at the moment I’m trying to follow it up.
“It’s not just beneficial for weight loss, it’s beneficial for reducing cancers, and for people who are diabetic.
“There are some amazing health benefits to following a lifestyle like that, rather than eating a load of sugar and a load of carbs.”
The TV presenter went on to tell Express.co.uk about the meals she eats every day that are both delicious and healthy.
Laura emphasised that it’s okay to enjoy your favourite foods as part of a healthy lifestyle, as well as to snack, because life is “all about balance”.
She said: “There are times where I’m like oh I’ll go grab a little sweet treat.
“I also love nuts. I snack on nuts – in fact I have some in front of me now that I’m eating.”
The TV presenter added that she enjoys cooking both at home and whenever she travels abroad for work.
She explained: “I love cooking. When I’m travelling and I come back home I’m always inspired by the things that I’ve eaten.
“When I come back from Greece I’m often like, oh I want a great salad. I buy some feta and olives and I chop tomatoes, onions, and put loads of olive oil in too.
“You can’t beat buying loads of vegetables, chopping them all up, bit of salt sprinkled on them, olive oil, putting them in the oven and roasting them. It’s just so tasty,” Laura added.
