Rosie Huntington-Whiteley avoids fad diets.

The 26-year-old star is currently living in Los Angeles, where fads are a popular lifestyle choice, but she prefers maintaining a balanced diet with plenty of vegetables, smoothies and fish to give her all the nutrients she needs.

She told Britain's Grazia magazine: ''I live in LA, where every fad diet starts and all the training techniques begin, but I have always kept my approach to health and fitness really simple.

''I know when I go back to Devon and go supermarket shopping with my mum I'm not going to find anything gluten free, but there are things available. My approach is a lot of vegetables, smoothies and fish ... I don't believe in fads. I believe in eating clean and balanced.''

The blonde beauty kicks off her day with a healthy smoothie and lots of water which helps maintain her glowing complexion.

She explained: ''I do a lot of juicing, a lot of green smoothies. I put all my superfoods and supplements into my juice and I have that first thing. I drink two litres of water when I wake up and try to do four litres a day.''

Rosie grew up on a farm in Devon, South England, and used to play many outdoors sports in her younger years. She still believes exercise is important especially now as she is jet-setting around the world.

She added: ''My mum and my brothers are fitness instructors, so I grew up outdoors, playing sports and being active. It keeps my head screwed on. You can't be flying around and not look after yourself and expect to keep your body running.''
