How does a model like Kate Upton maintain her figure? She'll tell you: With focus, discipline, and portion control.
In an interview with the Evening Standard, Kate describes what she eats on a "good day."
Breakfast, 7 a.m.: Scrambled eggs (one white, one whole) with spinach and green tea.
Snack, 10 a.m.: 10 raw almonds and a green juice.
Lunch: Quinoa with herb-crusted grilled chicken and grilled vegetables.
Snack, 4 p.m.: Protein bar.
Dinner, 7 p.m.: Sashimi or a kale salad with grilled salmon and cashews.
Why this regimen? "For me, it's about being strong, having the strength to work ten-hour days, and eating healthily," she says.
While Kate sticks to her good-day diet most of the time, she'll go on a 48-hour juice cleanse before a shoot. And when she lets loose, she'll have Tequila Tuesday or eat something fried and salty.
Voluptuous and body-proud, you might be surprised to find that Kate is also body-shy. "I always am!" she tells the Evening Standard. "Well, I am and I'm not at the same time. Every person has insecurities. But this is the body I was given, I appreciate it and I try to take care of it every day as best I can, but I always enjoy my life. So I'm not going to let my insecurities stop me from enjoying life."
