Don't Drink Your Calories

Bella only fuels up with healthy, low calorie drinks. "I order a lot of green juices and keep them around on set. I have ginger shots in a cooler, and I'll drink one if I'm feeling low," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I'm also a big coffee drinker. I'll have three espressos before noon."


Eat Breakfast

Bella doesn't skip breakfast. "If I have the morning off, I'll either make eggs and sausage, and eat breakfast at home, or go to the bagel store below my apartment," she told Harper's Bazaar. Her go-to order is an egg sandwich on a plain bagel.


Pay Attention to Hunger Cues

Bella has "really low blood sugar," forcing her to "eat all the time," to avoid her blood sugar crashing. "I like having a good protein meal because I get really tired if I eat too much, so I try to fill myself up with things that will make me feel good," she told Harper's Bazaar. 


Make Healthy Food Choices for Fitness


Bella keeps her body fueled for success. "I count on a smoothie, a juice or a protein drink 30 minutes before the session," she told Vogue Paris. "After the session I eat something full of protein like chicken and wholegrain rice. It's ideal to strengthen the muscle mass and to increase the effects of the session."


Work Out Hard

Bella is serious about exercise. She works out at both The Dogpound and Gotham gyms, where she does muscle-building strength training and HIIT workouts. "I train and I work out hard for two hours — I don't like to do the whole yoga thing. I think yoga is calming, it's amazing, but if I'm going to go for it, I'm going to go hard," she told E! News. "Put in 100% from the start to the end of a workout. There is nothing better than to push yourself to the limit, while making the most of it. Going to the gym for two hours with only 50% motivation is the best way of erasing the feeling of accomplishment and well-being that boosts self-confidence that you get from a workout," she added to Vogue France.

Like many of her supermodel pals, Bella enjoys boxing. "I train with my coach for intensive sessions. I run non-stop for 20 minutes followed by a boxing session and finally a series of weights targeting the abs and glutes," she told Vogue France. 


Don't Listen to Insecure Voices

Even Bella is insecure. In a recent interview with Marie Claire she revealed that the modeling industry "created a lot of insecurities" and mader her "very insecure in general" growing up. However, her approach is now different. "But I've really learned that beauty for me is about that confidence within. And being able to work on your mental health. Being able to work on your internal health," she told them. "Beauty for me changes everyday. I see beauty within everyone. You know, I think energy is beauty. And I don't see ugly in anybody or anything—sometimes that's to my detriment, where I see the good in everybody. But I really do see beauty as an energy vessel."


Talk It Out

Bella is a huge proponent of therapy. "I look at my body now as a temple," she told Marie Claire. "Before, it kind of got to the point where my body wasn't owned by me. Now I feel like I own my body again. We all have so many insecurities in general. I wake up mostly every morning not feeling like the Bella that everyone else sees. I do the work every morning to be able to get to that point. And sometimes I don't even get there. But it really is about keeping that grounding and that love for yourself and understanding that your worth comes from you and not from anybody else. And yes, that was through therapy. And that was through a lot of self realizations and not putting my worth in anyone else's hand except for my own…."
