Breaking down Gisele Bündchen’s diet and exercise routine

Gisele Bündchen is peeling back the curtain on her health and fitness routine.

The supermodel works out six days a week, she told WSJ. Magazine in an interview published Monday, going on to share her go-to activities.

“I love Pilates because I had back surgery three years ago and it helps with your core,” the 43-year-old explained. “I like exercise outside: surfing, swimming, horseback riding, volleyball. When I’m on holiday, I do more of that.”

On top of lifting “weights about two days a week [and doing] cardio about two days a week,” Bündchen also walks her dog twice a day.

The “Nourish” cookbook author, who considers herself “the farthest thing from a chef,” went on to describe her favorite meals to the outlet.

Bündchen starts her day at 5 a.m. with “lukewarm water with a little lemon and Celtic salt,” then “like[s] to have eggs” if she has worked out.

“I also like avocado. It can be an omelet, a frittata,” she said. “Sometimes I have a smoothie. I always make an almond paste to have some protein in there.”

The businesswoman made it clear that she never consumes white sugar, calling the ingredient “poison.”

She noted, “There [are] so many other ways you can sweeten your things that are delicious. Honey, maple syrup, dates.”

Bündchen, who shares two children with ex-husband Tom Brady, admitted that she has a “difficult” time balancing her life and career as a working mom.

“When my kids are with me, they have so many activities,” she said of son Benjamin, 14, and daughter Vivian, 11.

“It’s difficult to manage my schedule and their schedule,” Bündchen continued. “The most important thing for me every day is to put the oxygen mask on me first.”

She credited her “asana” stretches and meditation with helping “ground” her first thing in the morning.

Bündchen regularly gives her Instagram followers glimpses of her wellness routine, from taking a “moment of reflection” last week to dishing up date bark for a snack.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel also practices jiu-jitsu. She has been dating her trainer, Joaquim Valente, following her 2022 divorce from Brady.
