Kate Ferdinand reveals she keeps treat cupboard under lock and key to keep indulgences to a minimum

Kate Ferdinand revealed she has an unusual technique for ensuring that she limits the amount of treats she eats each day.

Katie previously revealed in her new book, 'Fitter, Happier, Healthier: The Ultimate Body Plan' that she keeps any treats in a high cupboard only accessible by stepladder, but she explained to OK! magazine that her and husband Rio Ferdinand now have a new tactic.

“They are now in a locked cupboard. You need a key.” However the location of the key is kept a secret from Rio's children Lorenz, 13, Tate, 11, and Tia, eight. “I can’t share where it’s kept because the kids might read this.

“That sounds obsessive, but it’s just because children like to take a few extra treats and suddenly it’s, “Where have all the Crunchies gone?” Sometimes Rio hides the key from me if I ask him to. It makes me aware of indulging.”

She further explained, “It’s all about being balanced in everything. We don’t go too far one way with anything. We like to eat chocolate and snacks, but we also like to eat healthy snacks.”

Kate, 28, who married Rio, 41, in a three day extravaganza in Turkey, also wrote in her book that she only eats one sandwich a year which fascinated some fans. “The whole book is about how I like to balance my lifestyle. I love chocolate, wine and a vodka, so it is funny that it was the sandwich that people picked up on. At my New Year’s Eve party everyone was going, “Have you had your turkey sandwich yet?””

However, she did admit to indulging over the festive season, “On New Year’s Day, I had a bacon sandwich for breakfast, and a chip sandwich for lunch. I had two years’ worth of sandwiches! I was going to put it on Instagram but I decided against it.”

Kate recently opened up just how much husband Rio means to her, crediting him for “saving” her.

The former reality star said she was struggling with anxiety and panic attacks when she met the football pundit, 41, who was also struggling after becoming a widower after his wife Rebecca Ellison passed away from breast cancer in 2015.

Kate, who is now co-parenting Rio’s three children, said he and the kids helped her “love herself.” Speaking to The Sun, she said: “We really did save each other.

“Rio was at a stage in his life where he had lost his wife and I was also lost.”

She added: “We have all been through bad times and yet we are all together. Going through so much brings you even closer.”
