So, if you’ve ever wondered how top models stay healthy, gorgeous and keep a cool head even with all the chaos going on around them, keep reading for health tips from top models!
1 Miranda Kerr
Let’s start off this list of health tips from top models with the stunning Miranda Kerr. In case you didn’t know, Miranda has her own line of organic skin care products, which she calls a reflection of her passion for living a healthy, organic lifestyle. She recommends incorporating your workout into daily activities so that it doesn’t get overlooked and filling up on water, green tea and superfoods. She’s also practiced yoga for over 12 years!
2 Elle Macpherson
At age 50, Elle “The Body” Macpherson has been gracing the covers of magazines for decades and still looks just as amazing as she did when she first started modeling. Elle says that a combination of running intervals outside, sleeping properly, drinking lots of water and eating fruits, vegetables and lean protein will keep your body feeling great. She’s also a proponent of dry brushing the skin to refresh and detoxify skin.
3 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
This English model and actress like to simplify things when it comes to good health and eating. She says she prefers to stay away from fad diets and simply cuts out refined sugars and carbs when she wants to detoxify her body or shed a little weight. Rosie also loves to have homemade soups and smoothies and likes to add chlorella to her smoothies, which is great for healthy hair, skin and nails.
4 Chanel Iman
Chanel admits to wanting to eat strawberry pancakes with whipped cream every morning, but sticks to healthier fare such as yogurt, oatmeal, fruit, eggs and toast. She’s also a big fan of spa days and likes to hit Burke Williams for some relaxing treatments whenever she starts feeling stressed. Chanel also says her secret to staying healthy while keeping up with her busy schedule is having healthy snacks like avocado toast and staying active.
5 Natalia Vodianova
This gorgeous Russian model, who is a mother to three children, knows the key to looking good is good health. She states that the only diet she has followed and still sticks with is the Blood Type Diet, where you eat foods according to your blood type. Natalia says, “The big contracts go to the girls who are healthy - they need to have a sparkle in their eyes and you can't fake that if you're unhealthy."
6 Joan Smalls
Puerto Rican beauty Joan Smalls has three rules when it comes to having a hot body: cardio, vegetables and not dieting. Joan likes to mix things up with boxing and pilates and tries to work out at least 30 minutes each day. Joan, who is also a mommy, suggests swapping some not-so-good-for-you foods with vegetables to help fill you up, and staying away from diets. Her philosophy on dieting, "I don't believe in dieting because I'm Puerto Rican, and it's really hard to not eat what you love. It's in my blood to eat rice and beans, so I've learned to manage portions because you get to eat a little bit of what you absolutely love and crave."
7 Liu Wen
Striking model Liu Wen likes to stay true to her Chinese roots when it comes to what she eats. Her typical breakfast consists of congee, thousand-year-old eggs, pork or chicken or black sesame paste and some Starbucks coffee. She also loves exercising outdoors and tries to do cardio and light weights but doesn’t like to do any intense exercises.
