Many people often ponder the question, “Do models really eat?” The answer is “yes” and anyone can take advantage of these healthy dietary tips. The following tips are from Miss Universe’s and top models. Anyone who chooses to follow these diets will undoubtedly result in a hot body.

The low-carbohydrate diet.

Many models stick to the low-carb diet, as while all of us love carbs, carbs generally do not love us back. With this diet high protein is key, as high protein is not only great for energy, but it will help with not feeling as hungry as often. This is perfect for the model on the go and doesn’t mean an elimination of all carbohydrates. Breakfast examples include Special K or eggs on toast. Lunch sandwich options are healthy with chicken or tuna salad on whole wheat bread. Dinner suggestions are a lean meat combined with a vegetable such a broccoli.

The whole food diet.

What is the whole food diet? The whole food diet consists of a lot of clean eating. Clean eating consists of a diet which includes eating foods that are minimally or not processed at all, making the food as close to its natural form as close as possible. Meal examples include quinoa porridge for breakfast with goat’s milk yogurt. Lunch is a simple gluten-free salad or even raw sushi. Dinner can consist of a healthy chicken dish or even a fish and fish and vegetable stir fry. An easy way to eat clean is to avoid boxed foods and keep an eye on ingredient lists on labels. If there are a bunch of words you cannot pronounce on a box label it most likely will not fall into the whole food diet.

The back to basics diet.

This diet is exactly how it is spelled out and it is basic – protein meets vegetables. Basic food is better for your body so you are looking at minimal cooking and minimal sauces which are usually high calorie. While the raw diet is very healthy, it is sometimes harder to have a meal ready on the go or last minute. The bottom line with the back to basics diet is limited cooking and fewer sauces and an example dinner meal would be grilled Sword fish, steamed veggies and a healthy salad. The basic concept here is simple foods on a daily basis.

The blood type diet.

As for the most diets that fly underneath the radar, this diet takes the cake. While most conform to the popular super model diet out there, this one flat out gets into genetics and asks what your blood type is. For example, type A blood type suggests vegetarian based meals which are rich in organic vegetables, legumes and fresh squeezed juices. There are some fabulous snacks that come complete with this diet. These snacks include Fuji Apple slices with almond butter or organic almonds with blueberries or any other fruit.
