First TV Show
In 2011, Montana made her first TV show appearance as herself on the reality television series Australia’s Next Top Model.
Montana is blessed with a svelte figure but also works hard at maintaining it. She tries to work out every day even if it is for only 15 minutes due to her busy schedule. Montana likes to begin her day by exercising in an open space like the Bondi Beach as she considers the gym to be very claustrophobic. She also relies on outdoor activities like swimming and sports to keep her feeling fresh and healthy.
When it comes to her workout, she prefers exercises that can be done for an interval of 1 minute. According to Montana, her body responds well to 1-minute of lunges, 1-minute of squats, 1-minute of push-ups, and 1-minute of planks on each side.
Diet-wise, she eats everything but believes in the power of moderate eating. Montana revealed her diet plan in 2014, which is as follows –
- Breakfast – For breakfast, she relies on a cup of coffee to get her out of bed and follows it up with some fruit and muesli. She supplements her diet with some vitamin and minerals, a shot of chlorophyll, vitamin C, iron, and olive leaf to boost her energy levels.
- Lunch – As she is mostly out for work during noon time, she may opt for a chicken salad and a smoothie to fill her up for all the ensuing activities.
- Dinner – As she loves Japanese cuisine, her dinner usually consists of sushi, sashimi, and a miso soup and edamame.
- Dessert – Chorizo-flavored ice cream or Lindt Dark Sea Salt Chocolate
- Snacks – Almonds and dates
