Devon Windsor is only 25, but she already has more than 10 years of modelling experience. She walked her first Victoria’s Secret show in 2013 and got her wings in 2014!
She has lots of wonderful tips on how to exercise to get lean and toned, and she provides us with a real look into how models actually eat. This VS model is easy to look up to as a fitness and beauty inspiration because she is so open about her lifestyle.
DEVON WINDSOR DIET
She is a foodie, and she tries to make sure that she enjoys the food that she eats. She’s pretty balanced with her diet, keeping it healthy but yummy.
Making sure you eat food you enjoy is a great way to stay on track with a healthy lifestyle. For most people, it’s one thing that helps them eat well for life, not just for a month or two.
Have you ever wondered what a Victoria’s Secret model eats in a day? Here are some of Devon’s go-to, tasty meals for all times of the day.
For breakfast, Devon likes to make chocolate raspberry overnight oats.
Overnight oats are a great breakfast choice because they are easy to make, they taste great, and they are good for you.
Devon’s recipe for overnight oats includes:
- 1 cup oats
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup raspberries
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons granola
Stick this in a container, put in the fridge overnight, and you’ll wake up with breakfast ready to eat.
Here are some more delicious, healthy breakfast ideas.

I’M BACKKK…! Hoping everyone had an AMAZING summer !! So happy to be back on top of my Vlog again! I know how much you guys enjoyed my first “What I Eat in a Day” so I figured I would continue it, but this time it’s a healthy version! I have some big jobs coming up so I am trying much harder to eat clean lately! In this breakfast edition I will be making chocolate raspberry overnight oats!

For lunch, Devon likes to go with some lean protein, healthy grains, and vegetables. One of her favourite lunches is a Healthy Honey Lemon Chicken.
She cooks the chicken in a healthy marinade and serves it with quinoa and avocado. She also likes to add other vegetables that she has available.
This meal goes to show that eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring! It is perfectly OK to get creative in the kitchen and add seasoning to good-for-you ingredients. You can make basic chicken, stir-fries, and other dishes much more interesting.<

When Devon is trying to be healthy, she likes opting for a lighter dinner, like soup.
Soups are a great choice because you can customize them depending on the ingredients you have.
One of Devon’s favourite soups is the Thai soup, Tom Kha Gai. You can watch the entire cooking process and recipe in her YouTube video. And here are some of the ingredients for this soup:
- Chicken broth
- Curry paste
- Rice (or another grain to bulk it up)
- Chicken cut into thin slices
- Spices, like ginger
This soup sounds delish and it’s also a healthy dinner option, especially if you don’t like to eat heavier meals in the evening.
PRE AND POST WORKOUT MEALS
Before a workout, Devon likes to eat eggs with toast and cheese. The protein helps get her ready for the tough workouts she endures.
After exercising, Devon likes picking up an acai berry smoothie.
DEVON’S GO-TO SNACKS
For snacks, Devon also likes smoothies with Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is another good way to get protein (and it’s low in lactose!).
For a treat snack, she likes pretzels, especially the ones sold at Auntie Annie’s pretzels.
HER FAVOURITE MEAL
Devon clearly loves to cook and one of her favourite meals to prepare is actually pizza.
She loves making pizza because it is so customizable. And she even manages to make pizza pretty healthy with lots of veggies.
DEVON’S WORKOUT ROUTINE
Devon enjoys working out. She mixes cardio and resistance training (which I also strongly recommend you do too!).
To Devon, working out is a great way to de-stress.
SHE LOVES BOXING
Boxing is a good cardio workout. It really gets your heart rate up, and it burns a lot of calories.
But boxing isn’t just good for working up a sweat. I’ve found that boxing also helps work your upper body and core without making you too muscular.
So if you want to tone your arms without bulking up, boxing is a great choice.
If you want to train like Devon, I have something special for you! I’ve created a 5-day video course which will help you achieve that model like body. All 5 workout videos are completely free and you can download them below :)
CARDIO DANCE CLASSES
She also likes cardio dance classes by celebrity trainer Megan Roup. Megan has also worked with some other models such as Elsa Hosk and Shanina Shaik.
In these classes, you do mainly cardio but also some bodyweight resistance training – donkey kicks variations, sit ups, leg lifts, etc.
I’ve written about this before, but combining cardio workouts with resistance training is really the best way to get a toned, model look. Devon obviously has great genetics, but she keeps her body lean with a good exercise plan.
Devon goes to a lot of pilates and ballet-inspired classes for her resistance training. This type of lighter resistance training is great if you want to get lean and toned without adding bulkiness and too much muscle.
HOW DEVON PREPS FOR VICTORIA SECRET’S CASTING AND SHOW
Devon regularly shares her workouts on her social media. You can watch one of her pre-show workout here.
To prepare for Victoria’s Secret casting and shows, Devon gets even more serious about her workout routine.
Devon begins training for the VS casting and show months before they begin. She still sticks to her general cardio and pilates workouts, but she says that she turns up the intensity. She never misses a workout leading up to the show!
In addition to cardio and pilates, Devon also visits her trainer Angelo at Performix House. She says she likes working with Angelo because he understands how important bodyweight exercises are for getting lean, long muscles without bulking up.
You can see her exact pre-show workout routine here. Just remember that she keeps her number of reps high (10-15) and doesn’t use heavy weights.
I hope you guys liked taking a peek into the fitness side of Devon’s life.
