Inside the diet of the healthy guru Gisele Bundchen
Think those models get their bodies overnight? Well, think again. It takes years of diligence, commitment and consistence of dieting and working out to achieve any good result. Here is sneak peek of the dietary regime of one of the healthiest supermodels; Gisele Bündchen, also known as the ultimate healthy living guru.
1) A vitamin-packed breakfast
"Around 6am, I face the day head-on with a glass of warm water and pressed lemon to balance the body's alkaline levels and kick-start the digestive system. I follow this up with a revitalizing herbal juice and super-vitamin smoothie, made in a blender with organic fruits. Later in the morning, I have brunch with fresh fruit, eggs, avocados, gluten-free bread and coconut butter."
2) Fuel up on fruits
From strawberries and raspberries to blackberries, blueberries and kiwis, the supermodel fuels up on all kinds of fruits.
3) And superfood meals
"My favorite homemade recipe is a dish split into seven portions, with kale, broccoli, quinoa, avocado, beetroot, sweet potato and cherry tomatoes. It works just as well for lunch as it does for the afternoon or during a hectic evening."
4) Cut off meat
"I don't eat nearly as much red meat as we used to; maybe once a month now. I mainly eat fruit, vegetables, grains, seeds, nuts, fish and organic chicken."
5) Early dinner
The supermodel has been following a routine of eating dinner between 5:30 am to 6:00 am to cleanse her body.
6) Detox twice a year
"I try to pair my detox cure with a silent retreat, as it's the perfect way to put your body and mind at rest for a weekend. I feel like this physical and mental detox even helps to boost my immune system, as I never get sick anymore."
