This is another post from my Miami Swim Week models diet and exercise routine series. And in this post I’m going to tell you all about the Georgia Gibbs diet and workout routine.
I’ve been following Georgia on Instagram for a while now and I’m constantly wowed by her dedication, her workouts, and her creativity in the kitchen.
Georgia struggles with a few health conditions that impact her gut health and change the way she eats. She’s been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), leaky
All of these change the way her system digests food and heavily influence the types of food she can eat.
In fact, her struggle with gut health is a lot like my own. We both try to eat a low-sugar diet and eat real and unprocessed foods for every meal.
She also tries to cook at home as often as possible. She always adds lots of greens to her meals – kale, spinach, and chard. Georgia also tries to avoid meat as often as possible. She eats chicken occasionally, but you are far more likely to see her making fish. Salmon and barramundi are by far her faves.
Let’s take a look at a few of her recipes.
For breakfast, Georgia likes to make delicious scrambled eggs. She starts with two eggs and whisks them together with 1 tablespoon of milk and a bit of sea salt and black pepper.
Then, she heats 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil in a skillet and sautés a cup of spinach and half a cup of frozen peas. Once cooked, she sets the greens on a plate and cooks the eggs.
Once it’s done, she puts the eggs next to the greens, sprinkles crumbled feta cheese over the top and adds a bit of avocado for some healthy fats.
For lunch, Georgia keeps things simple with a fresh and cleansing salad. She starts with 2 cups of chopped iceberg lettuce, half a cucumber, 1/3 of a bell pepper sliced, 2 sliced radishes, 2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds and 2 tablespoons of fresh coriander.
Once mixed, she grills 60 grams of haloumi cheese in a skillet and adds it to the salad. The greens are dressed with lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, ½ tablespoon of Dijon mustard and olive oil.
For dinner, she eats a simple meal of sautéed salmon seasoned with
Everything she eats is made to help her gut heal. This means avoiding processed foods and including tons of nutrient-dense foods every day. And for someone who’s so that dedicated to their health, this is not a problem. But that’s far from the only thing she does. Georgia also follows a pretty strenuous workout routine.
Georgia likes to exercise, but she’s not a huge fan of working out in the gym unless she absolutely has to. And when she does, she follows a pretty intense routine.
She repeats this circuit 3 times.

Trained with @erikanderson33 this morning?? Before flights I have to get a good sweat in. Today looked like; Medicine ball slam burpees x 10 Slide board side lunges x 10 Lateral slides x 20 Hip abductor x 20 Band toe taps x 10 Single leg bosu x 10 Repeat 3 times! I’m loving adding in gym work outs to my at home routine now my favourite US trainers are in LA! @dogpound I’m feeling stronger every day, remember all the effort you put into your work outs needs to be matched with your mindfulness, Yin & yang, hard at physical work, time spent calming and restoring the mind.

For Georgia, working out away from the gym is both more common and more comfortable. She tries to squeeze in full body home workouts at least twice a day, breaking them into
Most of these home-based workouts rely on bodyweight exercises to tone her muscles and build strength without causing her to bulk up.
She also incorporates cardio at home by using her stairs as part of the workout. When she feels like pushing herself, she runs up and down stairs. But when she just wants to warm up and get her heart moving, walking up and down the staircase a few times does the trick.
If you want to get a body like Georgia Gibbs, I have something special for you guys – Train like a model video course!
It is a 5-day full-length video course that includes my combined knowledge on how the most gorgeous woman in the world train their body to get lean and toned!
I decided to put together this free program to help you get started on the right track. You can download it below :)
Here’s one of her home workouts. To warm up, do high knees and twists. Do each workout 30-60 sec and do 4 rounds total.
You can watch the workout video here :)
She’s not a huge fan of traditional cardio exercises like running or doing the elliptical. It’s probably at least in part due to the fact that she’s not super happy about working out in a gym.
Instead, she finds other ways to get her heart pumping: boxing. Georgia LOVES boxing! It combines cardio and bodyweight exercises into one fast-paced workout that targets all those trouble spots without making you bulk up.
Boxing is actually one of the most popular workouts among models, especially among the Victoria’s Secret Angels.

Anyone else hate cardio? Well, I do too, so I started boxing! ? I’ve never liked cardio, it always made my workouts feel like a chore, then I fell in love with boxing! You get all the benefits feeling accomplished, exhausted and that huge boost of good energy at the end without getting bored (if you’re like me) This partner work out takes 30 minutes if you do it twice through and it really gets the blood pumping ❤️ Beating up @jeremy_gleeson #GirlsBox
Georgia listens to her body and that means she’s not afraid to take rest days or switch things up when she needs to recover.
Throughout the week, she does short yoga sessions to keep her muscles limber and ready for the demands of her more intense workouts. Yoga helps her stay toned. And it improves her flexibility.
When she needs a true rest day, she makes it an active rest day. For Georgia, this usually means going for a walk. And her routine clearly pays off. She’s in great shape and can make any swimsuit look stunning.
