Belle Lucia's Diet and Workout Routine

Belle Lucia is an Australian model and a total Instagram star. This beautiful woman is also a mother, and she’s been open about the challenges that come with pregnancy and modelling.

Throughout her pregnancy, Belle received a lot of criticism about looking too big, not having a big enough baby bump, and that sort of thing. Since giving birth, she’s received similar criticism. I really don’t approve of the negativity that she has received, and I’m excited to share with you about this amazing woman’s lifestyle. :)

BELLE LUCIA’S DIET

Belle loves food. She says she’s never been on a diet. Although she is Australian, she comes from Portuguese and German roots, and she says her family never encouraged dieting. Instead, for Belle, eating a balanced diet in moderation is part of enjoying life.

A FOCUS ON THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET

Although Belle doesn’t follow any specific diets, a lot of what she eats is inspired by Mediterranean cuisine. She eats lots of meals that contain olive oil, dark leafy greens, and lots of fish.

She doesn’t count calories, but she likes to follow her intuition. Belle likes to eat enough to be satisfying without overeating.

IT’S GOOD FOR HER INSIDE AND OUT!

Belle obviously has an amazing body, but she says her dietary choices have impacted her skin too. As a teenager, Belle struggled with acne.

Ultimately, she needed medication to help clear it up. However, she thinks that the Mediterranean diet contains a lot of foods that nourish her skin from the inside out.

TAKING CARE OF HER BODY DURING AND AFTER PREGNANCY

Belle gave birth in 2019. After having her baby, Belle said that she didn’t do anything too special to try to get slim. Instead, she focused on feeling healthy and strong.

One thing that she started to include in her diet during her pregnancy was a vegan protein powder. She specifically uses Tropeaka powder.

During her pregnancy, she made sure to take a regular pregnancy vitamin with a cup of tea.

WHAT BELLE EATS FOR BREAKFAST

Belle never skips breakfast. She isn’t a coffee drinker, so she relies on breakfast to give her energy to start her day.

Although Belle doesn’t eat the same food for breakfast every day, she does tend to eat the same few things on a regular basis. She likes scrambled eggs with toast, pancakes, and granola.

Belle also makes lots of smoothie bowls. Here’s what she puts in hers:

  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Cashew milk
  • Acai powder
  • Protein powder (she likes the vanilla flavor!)
  • Dates
  • Almonds

WHAT BELLE EATS FOR LUNCH

Belle says she looks forward to lunch the most on days when she is working. She models full-time and says that lunch is always a pleasant break in her day. As a foodie, Belle loves trying new things to eat.

She isn’t much of a salad girl (she says she needs to eat more than that to keep her energized). Sticking to her Mediterranean theme, she likes to eat fresh fish, spinach, and healthy fats (like avocado).

Belle also enjoys Mexican-inspired food. For lunch, sometimes she’ll make a healthy Mexican taco meal. Here’s what she includes in it:

  • Avocado, lime juice, and garlic for guacamole
  • Cherry tomatoes, one red pepper, and tofu cooked on the stovetop to go inside the taco
  • Tortillas
  • Lots of greens to top the tacos off!

WHAT BELLE EATS FOR DINNER

Belle’s absolutely favourite cuisine is Japanese. She loves sushi most of all, but you can also find her enjoying a bowl of ramen for dinner.

She also likes to make her own pasta and pasta sauce. Here’s how she makes it:

  • She mixes almonds, fresh mint, fresh basil, olive oil, pecorino cheese, and lemon in a blender for the sauce.
  • Belle cooks chicken on the stop top.
  • She cooks broccoli and pasta of choice together on the stove.
  • Belle tops the pasta and chicken with the sauce and enjoy!

DESSERTS AND OTHER TREATS

Belle doesn’t shy away from the fact that she believes food is an essential part of enjoying life. She isn’t afraid to enjoy pastries with tea or eat a scoop of ice cream. During her pregnancy, she said she craved raspberry, pistachio, and vanilla flavours!

Still, Belle is all about moderation. She doesn’t indulge in ways that make her feel uncomfortable or unhealthy!

BELLE LUCIA’S WORKOUT ROUTINE

MANAGING WITH A BUSY SCHEDULE

Belle doesn’t follow any intense fitness routine. She works as a model full-time, which takes a lot of her attention. As a new mother, going to the gym just hasn’t been a priority for her.

Plus, she’s never been much of a gym girl. She says that she likes to hang out with her family and friends, go to the beach, or curl up with a good book in her free time.

WALKING AND RUNNING

Belle may not love the gym, but she still likes to go for walks or jogs when she can.

I think straightforward cardio exercises like running and walking can be excellent for your body. Here’s why:

  • Running can burn a lot of calories in a relatively short amount of time.
  • Walking can help you burn fat and keep your legs slim!
  • It’s easy to squeeze in a walk or run even with a busy schedule. Try starting your day off with a short run, or maybe consider walking to the grocery store.

SURFING

When Belle has the time, she loves to surf! Surfing is a total-body workout, and you have to be strong to do it well!

Surfing is a great cardio workout. Paddling out into the ocean uses a lot of cardio work and upper body strength. Standing up (and balancing!) on the board requires strong legs and a strong core.

A BALANCED APPROACH TO DIET AND FITNESS

Belle is an incredible model. I love how open she’s been about her lifestyle. She’s very honest about her moderate approach to her diet and exercise routine. She enjoys life, and she isn’t ashamed of that.

As a model, Instagram star, and mother, I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from Belle. I hope you all liked learning more about her and if you have any blog post requests, let me know if the comments!
