Since the models conduct daily workouts and exercises, there body requires lots of proteins for the muscle building process. Because Alexa Chung is vegetarian, she might be depending on milk and other vegetarian sources of proteins. Green leafy vegetables are an ideal source of vitamins and minerals. They also have high fiber content. They can provide all the essential vitamins like Vitamin A, B etc. to Chung. Fruits and vegetables are another source of nutrients for vegetarians. They also have omega 3 fatty acids which delay the cell ageing process. Vegetarians are known to have lean bodies. Therefore Alexa’s skinny and lean figure can be attributed to her eating habits.
