In this blog post, we are taking a look at the Amanda Li Paige diet and workout routine. Amanda is a Miami Swim Week model and I absolutely love her!
I’ve been following her on Instagram for quite a while and since the Miami Swim Week is about to start, I decided to share some of her diet and workout tips.
So how does she stay looking so incredible? Let’s find out.
Amanda is a big fan of dairy but unfortunately, she’s lactose intolerant. So after she learned she’s lactose intolerant she changed up her diet a bit. And judging by her Instagram, I would say she eats really healthy for most of the time.
Her daily diet consists mostly of fresh fruit and veggies, lean protein and healthy fats. She tries to eat clean as much as she can which means she usually avoids processed store-bought food. I’m a huge fan of clean eating and I know that some big stars, like Kim Kardashian, also do it.
Breakfast is Amanda’s favourite meal and she shares a lot about it on her Instagram. She’ll usually eat either an acai bowl, a protein smoothie or granola with vegan Greek yogurt and fresh fruit.
Here’s her go to smoothie recipe :)
And since Amanda tries to eat clean as much as she can, she avoids store-bought granola (those can be full of added sugar). Instead, she makes her own granola. Here’s her recipe:
As I mentioned, Amanda Li is lactose intolerant and she mainly practises clean eating. So what does someone who’s lactose intolerant and who is eating clean can actually have for lunch and dinner?
Here’s a couple of meal ideas! All of these recipes are dairy, processed sugar and
Amanda makes a lot of her own food from scratch, including healthy cookies. Here’s her favourite cookie recipe :)
Amanda drinks plenty of water (just like we all should be) but is also a big fan of fresh juices and teas. She does drink alcohol occasionally but in moderation of course.
Amanda likes to start her day by doing a class at the fitness studio. In general, she enjoys doing a mixture of cardio exercise (hiking and boxing) and resistance training (pilates and pilates style workouts).
Amanda’s friend Saria actually got her into fitness, and they regularly work out together. When they exercise together, Amanda finds that she works harder because she slows down and focuses more on what she is doing.
Here are some of the workouts that she does with Saria:
And if you want to look like Amanda Li and train like her, I have a workout video course that will help you achieve that model like look. The course lasts for 5 days and it’s completely free. You can download it below :)
You can watch the workout video here. Amanda says that she is always sore after doing this full body workout. And I’m not surprised as it is quite intense!
Because she is naturally quite lean and doesn’t seem to build up muscle that easily, she can do this workout without bulking up. But if you are a mesomorph or endomorph body type these workouts might bulk you up.

Amanda is originally from Hawaii but she moved to LA because of work. She grew up by the beach so she used to do a lot of recreational swimming. And now that she moved to LA, she says that hiking is one of her favourite ways to explore the area. There are so many great places to go just within a short drive of the city.
As a part of her cardio routine, Amanda also loves to go to boxing classes. Boxing is actually an amazing cardio workout that will help you get lean. And it’s actually great for toning your arms and core.
I did a lot of research on Victoria Secret models and I noticed that almost all of them also do boxing. And these girls know all about exercising to get lean and toned! So it’s no wonder swimwear models also love boxing :)
Thanks for reading! I hope you liked learning about Amanda and if you missed my previous Miami Swim Week model blog post, you can find it here.
