Pippa Middleton is the Duchess of Cambridge‘s younger sister and has the same hair and figure as Kate. What does she do to stay slim?
Thanks to a balanced diet and plenty of exercise, Pippa has a fantastic figure.
Although her exact size is not known, Pippa’s frame is similar to her sister Kate’s, who is a size six.
Despite being a mother to three children, the 38-year-old socialite manages to eat healthily and stay fit.
One way she stays slim is by eating breakfast every day. Breakfast isn’t described as the most important meal of the day for no reason – it helps people stay fuller for longer and therefore they are less likely to snack throughout the day.

Pippa explained she “can’t start the day properly without breakfast”.
Hers is often comprised of “lots of porridge or boiled eggs with soldiers”.
But other times, she opts for yoghurt, avocado on toast, and muesli.
“My usual breakfast is either plain yoghurt with chopped fruit and toasted seeds, oats and nuts or toasted rye bread with eggs or avocado,” Pippa told The i.

“You can even make a batch for the whole week,” the socialite explained.
For Pippa, food is all about balance, which means she isn’t afraid to consume sugary treats from time to time.
Writing in Waitrose magazine, she revealed: “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 an occasional glass of wine.”
The 38-year-old went on to say she has never properly dieted, but makes sure to eat as healthily as she can.
She said: “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.”
Many experts, including nutrition expert Dr Michael Mosley, have advised swapping refined carbohydrates for wholegrains as they help keep people feeling fuller for longer.
Wholegrains are full of fibre, which also helps with digestion.Exercise is just as important as diet when it comes to weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight.
Pippa has revealed how her children keep her active, and she also enjoys attending fitness classes.
Speaking to an interviewer from running shoe brand Hoka One One, she explained: “Being active with my two and a half-year-old son in the park or playground, transporting him on the back of my bike, and buggy running when he was a baby have been ways in which I have been able to include outdoor exercise whilst being a hands-on mummy.”
She added that post-pregnancy with her older children she also worked out “for 45 minutes, three or four times a week, depending on my energy levels”.
