Diet Details

No Junk In the Trunk

\

Fruitless Dinner

\

Just Say No to the Midnight Munchies

\

Red Meat Need Not Apply

Ren avoids red meat, but will eat chicken, fish and other types of protein, including vegan protein powder.

Cheats?

Ren’s two favorite foods are veggie burgers and ‘banana ice cream,’ but the ice cream is pretty much just bananas and almond milk and she uses lettuce leaves for the bun on her burger. Her real cheats are French toast and turkey bacon, and also going to Chipotle.

Ren does hot yoga (Bikram) and Pilates at least once per week.

Alexis Ren’s Lifestyle

Not Just A Hot Bod

Ren loves to watch documentaries and TED talks, and takes clothing design and growing her activewear business seriously.

Endless Summer

Ren says she loves the sun, and that’s why she travels so much (although being from SoCal, one wonders why she would need to).

But to Keep That Bod Hot

Ren applies coconut oil every night, but then washes it off in the morning so she isn’t greasy. She also says she never tans her face so she won’t get sun spots.

Hard Knocks

Ren’s mother passed away from cancer when Ren was only 14. Ren says that between that and the pressure from her modeling career, she felt like her life was out of control and that’s what spurred her eating disorder.

Ren on Creativity

I love creating art, whether it’s with photos, my own body, or clothes.

{

Ren on Her Bikini Lifestyle

The fact that I have more clothes on to sleep in than I do to go out in says a lot about who I am[…]

{

Ren on People Judging Her

I like challenge and I hate being categorized.

{

Ren on The Sun

I think of the sun as my battery, my charger.

{

Ren on Her Family

I have this thing called my Post It People. They’re my closest family members. Those are the ones who count.

{

Ren on Strength

I think being vulnerable to other humans is a form of strength.
