For her diet, the queen would combine the best Mediterranean foods with elements of the Perricone diet.
When the Queen was appointed Special Ambassador for Nutrition by the UN in 2015, she said she would use her role to promote the benefits of a Mediterranean diet, calling it “the best example of healthy and sustainable eating”.
The Perricone Diet, named after Dr. Nicholas Perricone, focuses on anti-inflammatory foods said to promote inner health and wellness, including salmon, lean proteins, nuts, fresh fruits and vegetables, and healthy oils.
It is believed to be one of the healthiest in the world, aimed at long-term wellness and also boasts anti-aging properties and multiple skin benefits.
In addition, Letizia avoids sugar and never eats ready-made meals, frozen products or pizza.
When it comes to drinks, the Queen avoids coffee, fizzy drinks and alcohol at all costs – which can be quite tricky when toasting royal engagements.
