Being genetically blessed with a runway-ready body and the ability to tolerate grueling workout schedules are just a few qualities that help make Victoria's Secret models so successful. (A lightning-fast metabolism also doesn't hurt, either.) Following a mindful diet is also key to staying in shape, and one celebrity trainer who's worked with his fair share of VS Angels has outlined exactly what the incredibly fit models eat immediately after workouts.
"Most all models are super conscious of what they eat," says Michael Blauner, who's trained Victoria's Secret models for the lingerie brand's annual fashion show. He tells PopSugar that "no matter how young or genetically blessed one is, you still should be super in control of what you eat to look that spectacular."
In general, Blauner recommends keeping your post-workout ratio of protein, carbohydrates, and fats at around 50/30/20 "during times of hard training." As far as the exact menu, the star trainer suggests refueling on the following snacks in order to help boost recovery and rebuild muscle:
- Plenty of fruit
- Low-fat yogurt and a handful of cereal mixed in
- Two hard-boiled eggs and a few crackers
- A couple ounces of grilled steak, chicken, or fish
