Pippa Middleton is famously fit.

Just days after completing 47-mile charity ski trek, she ran a half marathon and is currently studying for a qualification in nutrition (and teaching her sister Kate Middleton about the importance of an organic diet).

She dished to Hello! magazine about what fuels her workout regime and spoiler alert - there's no snacking involved.

"I try to eat wholegrain, energy-fuelled carbohydrates and three meals a day," she told the mag. "I also increase my portion sizes based on my training level, with lots of brown rice, lentils, quinoa and sweet potato, and for breakfast, porridge and rye toast."

Before a physical event, she changes her diet just days before and says she gets smarter about what she puts in her body.

"I don't get fussy, though, because I enjoy food too much. But a week or so before an event I'm quite conscious of eating really nutritious foods to store energy and I cut out alcohol, refined sugar and processed foods."

Middleton previously spoke about the importance of a balanced diet with regular exercise.

"I grew up with the belief that good health is about moderation in all things, so I'll be celebrating healthy living through exercise, a balanced diet and a little of the naughty stuff sprinkled in — I'm talking chocolate, crisps, and the occasional glass of wine," she wrote in her Waitrose column.

"I've never done Dukan, attempted Atkins or exercised religiously seven days a week, but I do believe in making healthy choices — keeping refined carbs such as white bread and pasta to a minimum, and sticking to sensible portion sizes.

"I know that if I fit in at least three, ideally five, sessions of exercise a week, be it a 30-minute run, an hour’s walk or a good game of tennis, it boosts my mood and energy, and helps me sleep and digest better. So I make it a priority, whatever the weather or my work schedule."
