Pamela Reif is a gorgeous model but in addition to being a stunning Instagram influencer, she’s also a major foodie, cookbook writer
So since a lot of you asked me about Pamela’s diet and workout routine, i decided to do some serious research.
Let’s see what I found out :)
Pamela follows what she calls the “right diet.” And it’s a completely holistic approach to food and nutrition. She puts a lot of weight on eating right not just for her body, but for the globe.
It all comes down to sustainability. She recognizes that meat consumption puts strain on the environment. And while she does eat meat, she tries to keep the majority of her diet vegetarian and as heavily plant-based as possible. This means reducing the amount of meat she consumes and shifting her focus towards preparing veg-heavy dishes throughout the week.
Pamela used to start her days with a bowl of Muesli and a piece of marble cake. Now, she likes to keep things healthier and nutrient-dense.
If she’s eating on the go, she often makes a green smoothie using frozen spinach, wheatgrass, frozen broccoli, banana, fresh ginger, cinnamon, and water. For protein, she uses hemp protein powder.
Keep in mind that both of these smoothies are sweet, but they’re not terribly fruity. If you like that added sweetness, try one of these great smoothie bowls.
Pamela’s lunches are often protein-packed so she can recover from her morning workouts more easily.
She sautés sliced zucchini, fresh baby spinach, cherry or grape tomatoes, and salmon in a skillet with a touch of oil. While the ingredients cook, she poaches an egg which goes on top of the finished dish.
The result is a nutrient-dense protein-packed dish that’s light enough to keep you full without feeling bloated. Don’t get me wrong…I love a good poached egg, but they’re tricky to make. If you’re worried about your skills in the kitchen, try this recipe for a simpler take.
For dinner, she tries to keep things simple and hearty. Her
She adds sliced zucchini, broccoli florets, shredded kohlrabi, fennel, celery root, parsnip, and carrots. Then, she adds tomato passata, quinoa, and a bit of water. For added flavour, she uses sea salt to season the broth.
While you can cook it in a normal pot, Pamela prefers to use a pressure cooker.

? daily spirulina shots, sweet potato fritters with avocado, orange infused chia puddings with berries and plant based milk, fennel-apple salads with baby spinach and turmeric dressing, beetroot soups with sprouts and cashew creme ♥️ BEST FOOD I ever got served during vacation. 100% my taste and I seriously liked EVERYTHING. The dishes itself, preparation, flavors, textures .. always on point ? – The food plan of my Energizing Program at @velaaprivateisland is different to the normal hotel menu tho. Since it was personalized to my preferences they created a very plant-based and clean meal plan. Giving me tons of healthy fats each day with nuts, nut creams, pesto sauces, hummus, avocado, etc. ?? Only sugars are from fruit ? no onions & garlic because I dislike them, not so many cruciferous vegetables because my tummy has a hard time handling them ? no cow’s milk ? and no fish like tuna or salmon for me (environment, overfishing and heavy metals ?) – and guess what, no problem at all! The meals are sooo diverse and so incredible delicious ? couldn’t wish for more!! #cleaneating #madeeasy #nomnom #velaaprivateisland // Anzeige
Pamela prides herself on eating a healthy diet the majority of the time. But that doesn’t mean she didn’t have to make some serious changes. In fact, she used to eat marble cake every morning as part of her breakfast.
This daily splurge didn’t cause her to gain weight. But it did derail her progress at the gym.
She doesn’t believe in depriving herself of anything. Instead, she likes to fuel her body with what it needs when she needs it.

Pam puts a lot of effort into keeping her body in great shape. And she does it by targeting specific muscle groups. But best of all, she does it without using gym equipment. This allows her to get the same quality workout no matter where she is.
For cardio, Pamela often goes for a run. But she also likes to incorporate cardio elements into her strength training routines.
These exercises are super simple to do and keep your heart rate up throughout your workout. You can do just these exercises for several repetitions or incorporate them into other exercise routines to create a HIIT workout that targets your full body.
Pamela loves doing booty workouts and this is one of her favourite routines:
The workout targets her glutes, thighs, and abs. If you’re worried about all those squats bulking you up, try this routine instead.
Yes, Pamela LOVES to work out her abs. But it’s because they’re the core muscles used for so much of your body’s natural movement. When they’re strong, you’re better able to move and prevent injuries. Here’s what she does:
Pam’s arm routine also targets her abs at the same time. Like her other routines, all she needs is a mat.
Most of these exercises will work to give you tone without the bulk. Remember, bodyweight exercises are the BEST way to tone without packing on muscle.
Pamela Reif’s diet and workout are designed to keep her healthy without being too restrictive or taking up too much time in her already busy day. Do what your body needs and don’t be afraid to push yourself both on the mat and in the kitchen. You’ll feel better for it, just like she does!
