Becoming one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels is no mean feat. You need to look good and do it consistently for each and every ramp walk and other public appearances. One of the models who have managed to do so and yet look healthy and physically fit is the 28 year old Dutch supermodel, Doutzen Kroes. The model cum mother clearly stands out from the other models of the world as a very enterprising personality who cares about her and the people around her. Sure enough, she has some great tips for workout and diet, which she follows. So take a look!
DOUTZEN KROES WORKOUT ROUTINE
- THE ROPE TRICK
Doutzen believes in doing simple workouts for a long period of time. Her trainer says that she does not have to build muscles but just look toned and of course, slim. For this purpose, she does various cardiovascular exercises but the one that she is addicted to, is jumping ropes. Jumping ropes makes your body agile, alert and flexible apart from giving you a fast reaction time. She also likes to run.
- THE MOTHER OF ALL EXERCISES
Doutzen became mother in 2011 and ever since she has admitted that she doesn’t have to put in too much of effort while working out. The reason is that her baby keeps her busy by making her run around the house and tending to his needs. Experts agree that mothers who are ‘actively’ active behind their children for the first 7-8 years stand a chance to have a more healthy and fit body than others who leave the job to their spouses.
- IT’S RAINING PUNCHES
The Victoria’s Secret angel has another favorite sport cum workout that keeps her stamina and energy levels high to counter the gruelling schedules of ramp-walks and managing her baby. Doutzen often takes to boxing and even aerobics to keep her spirits high. The 27 year old admitted that whenever she felt low on a day, she would box the bag to vent out her negative feelings so that she returned to her son all happy and positive.
- TALL LEGS
The Dutch super model, like all models has tall legs and she has to put in that extra effort to maintain it in a way that it does not become too skinny or bulky. Hence for Doutzen, toning is the best way to do that and she makes efficient use of yoga, squats and stretching to keep the lower limbs in shape as well as the butt up.
DOUTZEN KROES DIET PLAN
- PRE-WORKOUT SNACKS
More than anything, Doutzen focuses on what she eats before and after workouts because according to her that is what translates into your efforts while exercising. She has low fat yogurt with wheat-free granola and a big cup of coffee before heading for a long workout. She also has some energy bars at times when she doesn’t have the time to prepare and eat.
- POST-WORKOUT SNACKS
Doutzen stresses that it depends on the type of workout she does. Toning is what she focuses mostly on and her protein based snack consists of hemp, brown rice in either vanilla or chocolate flavors. Unsalted nuts and dry fruits along with protein shake or oats is also among her favorites.
- STICK TO THE BASICS
After years of experimenting with her diet, Doutzen admits that the best way to remain healthy by eating food is to stay true to natural foods. This includes fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, nuts and lots of water. The Dutch emphasizes on the fact that everyone’s body and genetic composition is complex and varying, hence it is necessary to experiment till you find the right combination.
- KEEP YOUR WEAKNESS BUT IN MODERATION
Doutzen too has her own share of favorite foods and they aren’t exactly healthy so to speak. French fries and potato chips are her major weaknesses but she always tries to control the quantity and instead moves on to salads combined with fries of course!
All said and done Doutzen admits that she is a model at the end of the day and it is her job to look good. So, she wouldn’t be in a position to advice anyone, who is not from her profession, to follow her diet. Say whatever, but Doutzen is no doubt one of the best looking and fittest model.
