Chrissy Teigen is as real as they come for celebrities on social media. Just scroll through her Twitter feed to see for yourselves.
In terms of her health, she is very REAL with her fans and followers. She lives for food, especially recipes including rum, eggs, cholula hot sauce and John Legend’s fried chicken. Yup, fried chicken! If you are wondering how Chrissy, a former swimsuit model and mother to adorable Luna, manages to maintain a killer body, we are happy to share it does not involve sipping green juice all day long. **insert hands in the air emoji**
While we cannot look exactly like Chrissy, her approach to health is something we should all look into. It is a major key which could help us reach our goal body and embrace it too!
Chrissy preaches and lives by the word “balance“, including balancing a plate of fried chicken on her perfectly toned butt.
A good tip for those of us who have trouble with portion control, is to use the plate method as recommended by Nutritionist Nicole Groman.
Chrissy also tries to work out everyday doing exercises such as free runs and donkey kicks and swears by celebrity cult class; Body By Simone. Read more on her full workout routine and how she embraces her new title as one hot sexy mama on Self.
Working out every day could be a challenge, but with HIIT training you will definitely have the time to. Always find a workout you enjoy and a routine that works best for you!
She eats out but is also a big fan of cooking as proven in her cookbook titled Cravings: Recipes For All the Food You Want to Eat.
While Chrissy does enjoy a good burger from Shake Shack, she balances eating out with cooking at home. Studies have proven when you prepare your own meals, you can better track what you fuel and nourish your body with. For Chrissy, it’s all about clean eating aka knowing exactly what ingredients you use to put into frying John’s chicken wings. “Clean, to me, is something without 1,000 ingredients, with words I can pronounce. I didn’t mean to be #PROBLEMATIC.”
Keep in mind she isn’t a big pancake person, which helps because we all know sugar is a huge culprit in the American obesity epidemic. Her recipes include healthy meals such as this chicken lettuce wraps.
She accepts and loves her body regardless of the shape it is in, pregnant belly included. But Chrissy also acknowledges when she falls off the healthy band wagon, and makes amends to get back on it.
Pledging to love yourself can do wonders in your life. Not only will you be happier, but you will begin treating your body with kindness – nourishing and strengthening it as best as possible.
