She Doesn't Drink Her Calories
Bella only fuels herself with nutritious 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."
She Fuels Up in the Morning
Whenever possible, Bella fuels up on 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. … My go-to is an egg sandwich on a plain bagel," she told Harper's Bazaar.
She Eats When Her Body Needs It
Bella listens to her body's hunger pangs, revealing that she has "really low blood sugar" so she needs to "eat all the time" to maintain energy. "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. She also fuels up before a workout. "I count on a smoothie, a juice or a protein drink 30 minutes before the session," she added to 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."
Her Workouts Are Long and Hard
Bella works out long and hard. She told E! News that they can last up to a whopping two hours. "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 said. "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.
She Trains At the Dogpound
Bella is one of the many stars you will find pumping iron and doing HIIT workouts at bicoastal gym The Dogpound, like Vanessa Hudgens. She also trains at Gotham gym in New York City.
Bellla also stays in fighting form with the help of 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.
She Is Authentic
In a recent interview with Vogue, Bella revealed that in order to maintain her mental health, she prioritizes authenticity. "It's like there were two Bellas—me, this person in the process of figuring out who she was, and 'Bella Hadid' the alter ego, who was, I dunno, a sexbot who goes out every night?" she said. "I have insane social anxiety! Partying is not my thing, but I felt enormous pressure to project that image because I assumed that's all people wanted from me. Now I don't want to live in that box. I definitely feel like I'm allowed to speak."
