Christie Brinkley remains one of the world’s most celebrated supermodels, and at 61 continues to wow fans and peers with her fit physique and otherwise-stunning looks. Brinkley has shared numerous beauty secrets over the years, including those relating to diet and exercise. Let’s check out some of the gorgeous supermodel’s best tricks for fast weight loss:
A Vegetarian Diet
Brinkley has followed a vegetarian diet since she was 12 years old.
“Every morning I make myself a cappuccino with a drawing in the foam. I post them to Instagram with the hashtag #christiecappuccino,” she told Harper’s Bazaar. “I have sheep’s-milk yogurt from Old Chatham Sheepherding Company mixed with organic blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, papaya, chia seeds, raw oatmeal, and walnuts. If I want protein, I’ll have an egg-white omelet with spinach and mushrooms.”
Lunch favorites include hearty salads and fresh juices, while dinner staples include brown rice and lentils.
The Total Gym
The supermodel has been a spokesperson for Total Gym for years.
“Everyone asks if I really use the Total Gym, and I do! It’s perfect for stretching and lengthening my body. Last summer I got into SoulCycle, and in the winter I do yoga at Yoga Shanti. I enjoy bicycling, paddleboarding, surfing, skiing, and swimming too.”
“Believe me, I love a good chocolate chip ice cream. I’m not going to go for some lousy version of it,” she told Shape. “If I’m going to have it I’m going to have a really good one. I believe in treating yourself occasionally to something. But then keep other things in your fridge like those great Gnosis chocolates. They’re like the healthiest chocolate that I know of that literally it is like taking a bite of antioxidants. It’s got like Acai berries mixed in with this very pure cocoa and you’re really getting antioxidants and healthful benefits in each bite. They say it is anti-aging to eat that chocolate.”
