What Chrissy Teigen Eats in a Day to Stay Fit and Glowing
Find out how the activist, model, author, TV personality and mommy of two eats.
Chrissy Teigen has lived a whole lot of life in her (almost) 34 years. She’s been a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, food blogger turned best-selling cookbook author, an entrepreneur, TV personality, social justice activist, Twitter comedian and a proud mama of two kids. Oh yeah, and she’s married to PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive, John Legend.
While Teigen used to be a big advocate for low-carb dieting and focused on maintaining a “model weight,” a lot has changed in recent years. Since becoming a mom and a major influencer in the world of food, Teigen has let her passion for cooking, being with her family and enjoying life take priority over an exact number on the scale.
“Since I was 20 years old, I had this weight in my mind that I am, or that I’m supposed to be,” Teigen told Women’s Health. “I’ve been so used to that number for 10 years now. And then I started realizing it was a swimsuit-model weight. There’s a very big difference between wanting to be that kind of fit and wanting to be happy-fit.”
Teigen doesn’t look like a glowing goddess by cooking from her Cravings cookbooks every night (after all, her recipes can be pretty indulgent), but we can appreciate her more down-to-earth food and wellness philosophy. Here’s what she eats in a day to stay glowing, fit and healthy
