Training and diet advice for models
As a model it is important that you understand the fundamentals of following a healthy diet and a training regime.
As the modeling industry is fiercely competitive it is essential that you know how to stay in good shape. A successful model does not get a good-looking body or great looking skin by eating less and going for a run here and there. You need to make sure that in your diet you are getting the essential vitamins and minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and healthy fats that your body needs.
It’s all about eating clean, which means filling your diet with whole foods and eliminating processed foods. In addition to excluding processed foods such as sweets and chocolate, your diet also needs to reduce the use of oil, alcohol, sugar and salt.
Upon waking up in the morning you should aim to consume at least 500ml of water straight away. This will rehydrate the body after it has been dehydrated from sleeping. It will also help to flush toxins from your body right away and fire up your metabolism, which in turn will aid weight loss.
For breakfast, stick to whole grains (rye bread), protein (eggs) and healthy fats (avocado). At lunch, eat lean proteins such as chicken and fish and vegetables such as broccoli, kale and cauliflower. You can also add some complex carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes. Dinner is the same as lunch, minus the carbs. For detoxification, you also need to drink eight glasses of water a day.
A training program is just as important as the diet as they go hand in hand. However, there are many misconceptions when it comes to exercising and therefore it is imperative that you understand the different types of training and its benefits on the body.
Aerobic training (cardio, running, incline walking) is great to increase the endurance and stamina of the body whilst anaerobic training (weights, kettlebells, bodyweight) is good for strength and toning. A combination of the two is essential in order to see changes within the body. Doing cardio alone will not give your body the changes it needs in order to achieve a goal such as fat loss but including strength training will enhance your fat burning abilities long after you’ve left the gym. You should aim to train at least 3 times a week for about 30-60 minutes each session.
