The Sports Illustrated model shows off her fantastic figure while teasing an upcoming fashion show in one of her latest social media posts, wearing a purple bathing suit. "Who's ready for the @si_swimsuit show?!! 🙋🏻♀️ see you soon Miami!!" she captioned the post. How does the swimsuit model maintain her fit physique? Read on to see 6 of Brooks Nader's top diet and fitness tips for staying in shape and the photos that prove they work.
Brooks maintains a healthy diet. "For breakfast, I usually have avocado toast with a poached egg and coffee," she told Sports Illustrated. "Lunch typically consists of a salad or sandwich. For my salad, I usually create my own from Sweetgreen or Chop't [in NYC] with kale, spinach, romaine, tomatoes, jalapenos, onions, bell peppers and balsamic dressing. Otherwise, my sandwich is chicken salad." And for dinner? "I love having a rice bowl, sushi or pasta for dinner. The rice bowl I usually get from Cava, and it comes with white rice, crazy feta, chicken, onions, tomatoes and spicy peppers."
Brooks starts the day with a probiotic and a large glass of water. She also carries a gallon water bottle with her and sips on it throughout the day. "I don't always get through it, but I try," she told Sports Illustrated. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons. Water helps get rid of waste through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements, keeps your temperature normal, lubricates and cushions joints, and helps protect sensitive tissues.
Try Intermittent Fasts
Brooks is one of the many stars who relies on intermittent fasting. "I start eating at 12 p.m. and have my last meal at 8 p.m.," she told Spors Illustrated. "So it's only an eight-hour eating period." Intermittent fasting works by "prolonging the period when your body has burned through the calories consumed during your last meal and begins burning fat," explains Johns Hopkins Medicine.
Brooks doesn't believe in dieting. "I try to do everything in moderation and not limit myself too much. If I want a sweet I'll just have portion control and have a little bit of a cupcake instead of four cupcakes," she told Fox News. "I think that you can totally drive yourself crazy if you go on insane diets for long periods of time. You're just going to crack. It's taken me a while to just do everything in moderation — try to eat healthy as much as you can."
Have "Cheat Days"
Brooks is all about the occasional cheat meal. "This is so weird, but I love McDonald's," she told Fox News. "I eat cheeseburgers and french fries from McDonald's on my cheat days, which people might find gross. But I love McDonald's and I love pizza and I love wine. So that would probably be my meal, a very weird meal."
Avoid Sugar and Dairy
"I try and stay away from sugar and dairy but if I have a craving, I'll definitely satisfy it," Brooks told Daily Mail. "Any 'diet' a person goes under should just consist of healthy eating, but don't beat up yourself if you need to satisfy that fried chicken craving — I am Southern after all."
