2 She Sometimes Lets Fitness Slide

She avoids bread and chooses Pilates and Yoga when she does feel like working out.
Victoria's Secret models have to be strict with themselves. If they don't feel like exercising, they instead carefully control what they eat. Even models with genetic blessings need to follow certain rules in order to keep the model look. Behati makes looking good look easy, but it may not be as effortless.
1 She Prefers A Clean Way Of Eating
Behati likes to eat the organic way. She's rich, so paying for pricey organic fare is not a problem.
When you live in a home worth more than 35 million bucks, you can definitely pick and choose from the best that local farmer's markets and Whole Foods locations have to offer.
It's a lot harder for the average person who isn't rich to eat the organic way, but people manage. According to Galoremag.com, a regular woman (a non-model, in other words) tried a VS model meal plan and found it to be particularly challenging. The woman said she didn't look like a VS angel even though she ate like one.
