So THIS Is How How The Victoria’s Secret Angels Look So Bloomin’ Incredible…

Adriana, Alessandra, Karlie and co will be gracing the Victoria's Secret catwalk in London tonight, so we decided to find out how they stay in such awe-inspiring shape. Here's what they've revealed about their regimes, straight from the Angel's mouth...

Alessandra Ambrosio 

Diet: ‘I like to wake up and have Eggs Benedict with a cappuccino and orange juice. And then for lunch, I’ll have rice, beans and chicken or meat. And salad because I love salad. [For supper] I would have Japanese food, like sushi or some Japanese barbecue.’
Exercise: ‘I love doing yoga and I love to play volleyball on the beach with my friends – that’s one of my favourite things.’
Lily Aldridge
Diet: ‘It changes. Last night we had spaghetti bolognese and a chocolate pudding. Today, I’m going for sushi. Everything in moderation – I don’t eat hamburgers every day but, if I want a hamburger, I’ll have a hamburger. I eat really clean and healthy most of the time but I think you need to indulge a little.’
Exercise: ‘I switch it up between warm yoga and Ballet Beautiful.’
Lindsay Ellingson
Diet: ‘I think it’s sexier and more feminine to be more full. So I add almond butter, peanut butter [and] protein shakes to my diet, just to feel a little sexier and curvier.’
Exercise: ‘I do hip-hop classes, because it’s fun [and] it’s a great workout. You’re not even thinking about the workout, because it’s just so much fun.’
Karlie Kloss
Diet: ‘I carry a picnic in my purse at all times, with things like hot chocolate packets and oatmeal packets – things you can just add hot water to on the go. And I like Kind granola bars, or an apple – I like to have little things that I can just eat. I’m the queen of snacks. All the other models always know that I’m good for a snack and especially for a cookie.’
Exercise: ‘I love biking, especially in New York City… I bike all the way up to Central Park, through Central Park and back down. It’s my favourite thing to do. It’s not exercise. It’s fun!’
Doutzen Kroes
Diet: ‘I stop drinking a month before the show, and no sugar. I still eat carbs because to have just protein and vegetables for me, it doesn’t work. But I eat one potato with some fish and greens – very basic and happy food.’
Exercise: ‘When I am in NYC I always go for a run outside, along the Hudson River, and I really love that. But I also do lots of boxing and jump rope training. I love to really sweat and have a tough workout and so my best workouts are mostly cardio. They do good but they make you feel good at the same time. I do Pilates for stretching and posture, but I don’t really like it. I bring my jump rope with me everywhere I go.’
Candice Swanepoel
Diet: ‘To feel good and healthy, I eat a lot of vegetables, drink a lot of water, and I eat a lot of meat like steak because I want to build muscle. I’ll indulge in pasta, pizza and lots of yummy things.’
Exercise: ‘Yoga is one of my favourite ways [to work out]… It’s nice to just be able to stretch and work on your body but also your mind. Boxing has always worked really well for me as a full-body workout. I like something that’s fast; you really feel like you’re getting the energy up.’
Adriana Lima
Diet: ‘It’s important to watch what you eat – protein, a little bit of carbs, and vegetables… Sometimes I’ll do a pancake [for breakfast]. And I love chocolate and coconut cake. I’m crazy for coconut.’
Exercise: ‘I’ve been doing boxing for many years – over 10 years… I found this workout because I’m really an energetic person. I love challenges, I love intensity and I also like to challenge my mind… You use a lot of concentration.’
