It’s a common question filtered into our mailboxes – what do models really eat? And as much as the stereotype might lead you to believe, models don’t survive on cigarettes and coffee alone.

Obviously there is a lot of extra work that goes into maintaining a physique as long and lean as required, but when it comes down to it, models are just like you and I – everyday people enduring the same stressors of life as we do.

Meaning although they may clearly aim to eat healthy 90% of the time, they might find themselves out for brunch and order french toast or running out the door with no time to eat anything at all.

So when you continue below make sure you remember that.

Bella Hadid

“When I first wake up in the morning, I always have my lemon water. It just feel a little healthier than drinking regular water.

“I feel better when I have a lot of greens and drink juices. When I eat badly for a while, I need to do a Monday-Wednesday cleanse to be able to flush everything out and detox.”

Liu Wen

“If I’m in China, I’ll never be healthy, because we always eat so much congee and noodles and soy milk! When you wake up, the first step is to drink warm water with honey and after that have fresh fruit like apples and oranges.”

Romee Strijd

“In the morning, I like to eat a good portion of oatmeal with a scoop of protein and nuts, goji berries, and blueberries.”

Maria Borges

“Omelets. I put tomatoes and onions in them. Keep it simple!”

Stella Maxwell

“Coffee in the morning is essential. I like tea too, but I do coffee in the morning—usually an almond latte. Then I get dressed and get going.

“I love to eat avocado and toast in the mornings with a little bit of chile and lemon.”

Gigi Hadid

“I usually eat breakfast or have coffee before I do anything, I live near the Smile, and I love their scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast. I drink orange juice and coffee always.”

Jacquelyn Jablonski

“Eggs are always quick and easy. They are a good source of protein and I normally scramble them with whatever veggies I find in the fridge.”

Hailey Baldwin

“On a regular day, breakfast is usually eggs or oatmeal, some type of healthy protein, or a smoothie.”
