Bella Hadid’s Diet

Summary

Hadid stocks up on healthy foods and her fridge is a marvel, both in terms of neatness and quality. She keeps plenty of fresh fruit, veg, and green juices on hand, along with clean protein sources like eggs, chicken and salmon. She isn’t afraid of carbs and so long as she isn’t on a photoshoot, loves her pizza and pasta. Hadid gets healthy fats from sources like avocados and Icelandic-style yogurt which is low in sugar and has less of a bite than Greek yogurt. Kombucha and coconut water are also staples in her diet. Hadid works with nutritionist Charles Passler to help her stay on track.

Diet Details

\

Clean Eating

Hadid stocks up on fresh veggies, fruit, meat, and other single-ingredient natural foods so she always has something healthy on hand.

\

Power Up With Protein

When she has a photo shoot, Hadid will usually stick to protein such as chicken or fish, along with veggies.

\

Go Green

Hadid keeps green juices on the set to help keep herself energized and feeling good.

\

Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Besides her veggies and fruit, Hadid eats fatty fish which is high in anti-inflammatory omega-3s. Omega-3s help reduce the effects of Lyme disease she contracted in 2012.

\

Natural High

\

Pass the Pizza

Bella Hadid’s Fitness Routine

Weekly Routine

Not for Wimps

Hadid sometimes hits the gym for 2+ hours a day. For most people this isn’t practical, or even ideal. Thirty to forty-five minutes is plenty.

No Off Season

While some models let themselves relax when they don’t have a show, Hadid says it’s always bikini season and she works out year-round.

Weights for Definition

Hadid has a slender frame, so to add some shape, she lifts weights to get a few curves going. We should all be so lucky.

Box Out

Hadid digs boxing, which provides cardio, strength training and agility in one high-intensity session.

Booty Training

Hadid and her trainer Joe Holder work her whole body, and they pay especial attention to ‘the posterior chain,’ aka, her butt. The hips are key to fluid movement, which Hadid needs to move well on the runway.

Sista Power

Hadid loves to work out with her sister, Gigi, and they sometimes box one another.

‘We’re just really focusing on certain areas, such as the hamstrings, the glutes, the posterior chain, making sure the body moves as an integrated unit.’

Bella Hadid’s Lifestyle

Meditate for Quality Sleep

Hadid is constantly on the go, which means she doesn’t always get as many hours of sleep as she’d like. She focuses on quality by listening to meditation songs which she says helps her achieve deep sleep even in a short amount of time.

Long-Lasting Lyme

Hadid, her mother and brother were all diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012. The disease can be debilitating and the effects can last a lifetime. A healthy diet can help reduce the inflammation and other negative effects of the disease.

Heedless Youth

In 2014 when she was only 17 years old, Hadid almost hit a police car on the Pacific Coast Highway. She was driving on a suspended license at the time and lost her license for a year as well as 25 hours of community service for driving under the influence. Her mother was especially upset as her own father had died in a car accident when she was a child.

Less Than 6 Degrees of Separation

Hadid is related to the Kardashians clan, sort of. Her mother married David Foster, who was once married to Linda Thompson, former wife of Bruce (Caitlyn) Jenner, who later married Kris Jenner, who was once married to Robert Kardashian. Got it?

Silverscreen Dreams

Hadid has aspirations of adding acting to her list of employment credits. She is also considering returning to school to study Fashion Photography after her modeling career ends.

{

Hadid on Meditation Music

‘[It] makes me have a deeper sleep, even if I just have 4 hours. I’m usually out by the 4th song.’

{

Hadid on Modeling

‘There wasn’t really one time in my life where I was like, “I want to be a model!” It was more Gigi’s thing. I do like being in front of the camera more and more.’

{

Hadid on Her Personality

‘I’m not trying to be this cool girl. If you’re trying to be something you’re not, it’s slowly going to bite you in the butt.’

{

Hadid on Her Sister

‘Honestly, I’m her biggest fan.’

{

Hadid on Her Personal Style

I always love to dress up, but I usually end up in a leather jacket and boots.’

{
