Elsa Pataky reveals her fitness and health secrets 

How to get a body like Elsa Pataky: Chris Hemsworth’s wife reveals how ‘little changes’ make all the difference – as she warns against quick-fix diets

Chris Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky revealed her surprisingly simple diet and workout secrets during an interview on Sunrise on Wednesday.

The 43-year-old Spanish actress, who is promoting her new fitness book, Strong, told fans to ignore ‘quick-fix diets’ and instead embrace a new way of living. 

‘I don’t believe anything about diets, like quick diets that you do before summer. Those miracles don’t exist,’ said the mother-of-three.

Instead, Elsa emphasised the importance of adopting a new health-focused philosophy.

‘Eat healthier, like kind of a Mediterranean food every day, not just at periods of time,’ the Snakes On A Plane starlet said.

The Mediterranean diet is generally high in vegetables, fruits, legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds and olive oil.

Elsa also advised that sugar, alcohol and fatty foods should be kept to a minimum. 

On the topic of exercise, the Fast And The Furious actress recommended a step-by-step approach.

‘At a minimum, even starting 15 minutes, or 20 minutes a day, or even if you go on a bus to work, like maybe get off earlier than your stop and walking.’

While the Byron Bay beauty likes to keep fit doing yoga and horse riding, she encouraged her fans to embrace forms of exercise that they feel passionate about.  

‘Get passionate about something you like. Don’t make it like, ‘Oh I have to go to the gym’. It has to be something that you love,’ she said. 

The mother-of-three also likes to involve her children in her workouts, creating ‘circuits’ for them to complete with toy weights.

However, fitness-loving mothers can expect to have their workouts interrupted, warned Elsa.

‘Of course, you stop 100 times because they are fighting or something like that,’ she laughed.   

Elsa shares three children with her husband: daughter India, seven, and identical twins Tristan and Sasha, five.
