Here’s What Emily Ratajkowski Eats in a Day

What does Emily Ratajkowski eat in a day? Considering her figure, you might be forgiven for assuming the actress/model adheres to a very strict diet, but that's actually not the case.

Ratajkowski has a show-stopping body, but says she doesn't even have to work hard to keep it that way. In fact, the 27-year-old has a healthy and hearty appetite, and a very low key approach to keeping in shape.

Here's what she eats on a regular day:


Rather than opting for a healthy bowl of oatmeal and a cup of green tea, Ratajkowski goes all out with a caffeine kick coupled with a buttery, sugary treat.

"Every day I go to Blacktop Coffee and get this pastry called kouign-amann with my black coffee," Ratajkowski told Harpers Bazaar. A kouign-amann is a French pastry which is like a caramalized croissant, and was once described as "the fattiest pastry in all of Europe" by the New York Times. "I always pretend that I don't know what I'm getting. I'm like, "Um, hmm, I guess I'll get a kouign-amann?" They're like, "Uh-huh."


For lunch Ratajkowski opts for something healthier. "It's usually a salad or a sandwich," she revealed to Harpers. Not that the model wouldn't love to get her hands on some of the calorific options available when she's filming or on a photo shoot, though.

"If I'm on set, I'll have catering, but I'm well behaved with that stuff," she adds. "It's easy to go crazy, they know how to feed you."


Ratajkowski might have been born in England and raised near San Diego, but now calls Los Angeles home and will admit she's a sucker for some of the health fads she's discovered there.

"For me, it's about feeling good about what you eat," she told the New York Times. "I do love turmeric and beet juices. It's so L.A., you can't avoid it."

It looks like she's been doing her research because tumeric is said to have numerous health benefits including reducing inflammation which causes arthritis, cancer prevention, lowering cholesterol and aiding digestion.

Drinking beetroot juice has also been shown to help prevent cancer, boost stamina and lower blood pressure too.


"Dinner is my time to be social and catch up with people," Ratajkowski told Harpers Bazaar. "I love this Italian restaurant downtown called Bestia. It's kind of fun, and they have good cocktails and wine."

For the days she does want to cozy up at home, she has an array of takeouts on speed dial.

"You should see my refrigerator. It's insane," Ratajkowski said in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. "I have a relationship with Postmates. It's basically Indian food and Thai food, preferably when I'm horizontal in bed."

Ratajkowski's social media also shows she's a huge fan of pizza and southern food. She also loves sushi.


Is anything off menu for this girl? We know carbs, wine and pastries make the cut, so what about a delicious filet mignon or rib eye?

"I'm a carnivore," she told Elle. "I really like to eat meat. I crave iron."

But just because she has a healthy appetite for a variety of foods — good and bad — doesn't mean Ratajikowski is not conscious about what she's feeding her body.

"I cook a lot, so that really helps," she told Elle. "You know how much salt and sugar and all of that kind of stuff you are putting in your body. I like to keep it really balanced to give my body energy and also be healthy."


One look at her sculpted abs and you'd think Ratajikowski spends as much time in the gym as she does thinking about food, but you couldn't be more wrong.

"I don't have a trainer," she told the New York Times. "I'm just not a crazy fitness person. I'm definitely an outlier in the industry."

Instead of the gym she enjoys getting active outdoors and told Instyle she does "a lot of hiking" rather pounding the treadmill.

It's clear Ratajkowski has been blessed with some seriously good genes, but we love that she's also been blessed with a refreshing attitude towards food too.

"I think it's good to indulge occasionally. I wouldn't say I am the type of girl who craves Doritos but I definitely love a good cupcake sometimes... or a croissant in the morning. I think it is like really important to give yourself a break."

So next time you feel bad for giving into your donut cravings, know that Emily has your back!
