If you’ve ever wondered how Rachael Finch has rock-hard abs after having two children, she’s finally spilled the beans on her secrets.
Not only does the former Miss Universe manage to juggle motherhood with her showbiz career, but she also finds time to work out every single day.
Combine her fierce dedication to exercise with her pretty intense meal plan and that’s exactly how the 29-year-old stays looking fit and healthy.
The Melrose MCT ambassador, who has also released her own activewear line, said she starts off the day with an MCT coffee.
That includes combining espresso coffee with ghee and boiling water.

“It provides me with the energy that I need for whatever the day may hold,” Rachel told Be.
For breakfast, she’ll grab a superfood smoothie, consisting of frozen banana, coconut flesh, coconut milk, spinach and cacao powder.
Then when lunchtime hits, Rachael reaches for a leafy salad with poached chicken or fresh salmon.
Dinner is no different, with the star keeping to her strict diet, opting for roasted veggies and a slow cooked lamb or a delicious coconut laksa or fish stew.
“In our home, we love to mix things up in the kitchen as much as possible,” she said.
When it comes to working out, Rachael says she tried to get a workout in every day, whether it be a hard session at home on her balcony or a simple walk on the beach with her two children.
“My schedule can be pretty busy at times, however no matter what I have going on in my life, I always find the time to exercise,” she said.
“Whether it’s a morning stroll with Dominic in the pram, in my hotel room doing a core routine or a solid session at home on the balcony, exercise is vital.”
Rachael is a big believer in loving the body you’re in and says “it’s important in today’s society to understand that bodies come in all shapes and sizes”.
“You don’t have to be skinny to be fit – our bodies adapt to the training and nutrition that we give them and it varies from person to person,” she said.
“Certain programs will work better for some than others, that’s normal.
“It’s all about balance and adapting to what works for you.
“Exercise shouldn’t be a chore – it should be something we look forward to for both our physical and mental wellbeing.”
If she’s feeling a little run down, Rachel says she tries to “Keep up the armaforce and magnesium tablets every day – alongside an immune boosting tea with manuka honey, and the juice of one lemon”.
