Supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel reveal their diet and workout secrets!
Dying to look like a Victoria’s Secret Angel but have no idea where to start? Supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr and Candice Swanepoel dished their step-by-step diet and exercise plan at the 15th anniversary Swim Catalogue party at Brent Bolthouse‘s new LA club, Trousdale, March 25. And believe it or not — it’s not as hard as we thought!
We were positive it took hours of intense cardio and strength training in the gym to get one of the hottest bodies in the world, but these ladies actually use a simpler approach.
“I love waking up; I box; I do a lot of resistance…three or four times a week,” Candice, the 21-year-old model from South Africa dished. Alessandra prefers a slower-paced workout. “I’ve been trying pilates now, and I think it’s amazing,” the 28-year-old Brazilian said. “I love yoga,” Miranda, 26, said, agreeing with Alessandra. “I’ve been practicing it now for about 10 years and I love it!”
Yoga and pilates? Sounds reasonable to us! And shockingly enough, Alessandra, Miranda and Candice all eat like normal humans, too. The key, they say, is moderation. Here are their diet diaries:
“For breakfast — yogurt with blueberries, raspberries, apple, lemon after that. Sometimes some wheat-free toast with avocado on top. And then for lunch — some salad, vegetables, grilled fish, steamed vegetables. Almonds or almond butter.”
“I like to wake up and have eggs benedict with a cappacino and orange juice. And then for lunch, I’ll have rice, beans and chicken or meat. And salad because I love salad. At nighttime I would have like Japanese food, like sushi, or some Japanese barbeque. And I love chips. Salt and vinegar – ah! I’ll go into the airport and buy like three bags of them. And I can’t help myself!”
“I love a good breakfast. I love croissants. Eggs, bacon. I love vegetables, I like omelets. Raisins.”
And, like all of us, even models have guilty pleasures!
“Chocolate fondue is my favorite thing in the world,” Alessandra confessed. “[Mine] is probably chocolate lindt balls,” Miranda admitted. “Brazilian bread!” Candice said with the same excitement we reserve for McDonald’s fries.
It makes us happy to know even the hottest girls indulge every now and then! What do YOU think of Alessandra, Miranda and Candice’s healthy diet and exercise plans? Are you surprised? Sound off below!
