I had a lot of great feedback about some of the previous VS posts I did, especially
Behati has been a VS
The VS Angel is married to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. Together, they have two young daughters, and they were the reason why Behati took a break from modelling in the VS show for two years. She’s been in a few of Maroon 5’s videos, so you might recognise her from there also.
So how does this stunning model stay in shape? Let’s find out by looking at the Behati Prinsloo diet and workout routine.
There is a certain stereotype about models not eating enough. It may ring true for some, while others just naturally have an amazing metabolism that helps them burn those extra
When she was younger and didn’t understand the importance of a good diet, Behati was one of those models that under eat and she also used to smoke. I’m sure you already know how bad is smoking but you may not realize the dangers of under-eating. I know that so many young girls are tempted to lose weight this way but that’s not the right way to go. It will cause damage to your overall health and it will just slow down your metabolism. And slow metabolism will just cause you to gain weight even faster in the future.
Luckily, since having her daughters, Behati learned that undereating and eating junk food are really bad for her health. Now she has much better eating habits than she did when she just started modelling.
She still likes her quick and easy meals but now she knows that doesn’t mean you have to reach for fast foods. She’s lucky to live in LA, where there is an abundance of organic options to grab and eat on the run.
Here’s what the typical Behati Prinsloo diet looks like meal by meal.
Breakfast is Behati’s favourite meal of the day. She always wakes up and has a coffee with almond milk, and what she eats depends on if she is at home or out at a café. If she’s at home, she’ll make either oatmeal with berries and honey, or avocado toast with two eggs on the side.
If she’s headed out to have a social breakfast, she’ll enjoy an omelette or eggs benedict.
Behati often enjoys having healthy kale and quinoa salad. And she usually adds some lean protein to it, usually grilled chicken breast.
She’s a huge sushi fan, but she’ll only have it with brown rice instead of white. She’ll have six pieces of salmon and tuna sushi, and she’ll pass on the soy sauce as well.
Behati’s go-to snack consists of a handful of golden berries, pumpkin seeds and organic almonds.
Behati makes sure to drink plenty of water every day. She’ll easily drink 2 or 3 litres as well as some coconut water.
After having kids, Behati started to realise how bad processed food actually is. And after watching the documentary What the Health, she’s decided to make some serious changes to her diet. Now that she thinks a lot more carefully about where her food comes from, she will never eat bacon or hot dogs again.
Behati says her workouts need to be scheduled because she has two young daughters at home with her. She usually does a workout when one of her kids is having a nap. But she doesn’t necessarily work out every day. Some weeks she’ll feel really committed and do it 3 or 4 times, and other weeks she may only be able to go for a long walk or to the beach.
So, what kind of workouts does she like to do?
One class that Behati enjoys is Body by Simone. She finds that it’s a good cardio workout, but not too technical and boring. She says that dance moves these classes incorporate
Behati loves swimming. She says the beach is where she feels at home, and she used to swim a lot while she was at school. So now she likes to find a pool or a beach and just swim. Swimming is a great cardio exercise, and Behati finds that it also helps her tone her arms and core.
And if you want to look like Behati 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 :)
In order to make her more flexible, leaner and stronger, Behati does Pilates on the Pilates reformer machine as well as other traditional exercises. She does Pilates all year round.
One thing that Behati always carries with her in her luggage when she travels is resistance bands. This way she can do all sorts of exercises while she’s in a hotel room in front of the TV. And she also uses them at home. She finds that using them really helps to tone and build muscle without making her bulky. Resistance bands are really handy and I know that Izabel Goulart, Sara Sampaio and Lorena Rae also travel with their resistance bands :)
Since she loves swimming so much, it’s not surprising that Behati also surfs and enjoys paddle boarding.
I’m so glad Behati now has a much healthier lifestyle and eating habits then she before. Smoking and under eating are really bad for you and since I know how much influence celebrities can have, I’m always happy to see them send a good message to young girls :)

Also, if you want to step up your game when it comes to training, you should know about my 3 Steps to Lean Legs Program. I designed it to help all women who want to slim down and get toned without getting bulky in the process.
I know that most personal trainers don’t really take into consideration that a lot of women (myself included) prefer a more lean and slim look. I’ve met so many of you who told me your personal trainer trained you like they usually train men and that you ended up looking too bulky for your own liking. And to be honest, that sucks.
That’s why I wanted to design something that will finally help you get the look you’ve always
