Coffee Or Tea For Breakfast


Porizkova starts the day with tea or coffee, waiting as long as possible to break her fast. "Drinking tea is a great way to stay hydrated and can help to break up the monotony of just drinking water," says registered dietician Tyler Florek, who notes that people who drink tea are less likely to have heart disease or diabetes. "It is unclear if it's the compounds in tea that cause lower risk or that tea drinkers tend to have healthier lifestyles overall," he says.


Intermittent Fasting

Porizkova practices intermittent fasting, allowing herself a window of eight hours for meals. "You don't eat for 16 hours and then you eat for eight," she says. "I generally take it as I eat whatever I want for eight hours because I like food, but I also kind of tend to like more healthy food… If I need a fried chicken, then I'll eat a fried chicken. It's just the way it is."


Smoothies To Break Fast

Porizkova breaks her fast with smoothies or vegan soups. "No soft drinks, ever," she says. "No juices. If your fruit and veggies do not contain fiber (as in juices) it's basically sugar water. Intermittent fasting is not for everyone, people with certain illnesses or conditions who need to keep their sugar balance steady will not profit- but otherwise- for now science has agreed on fasting."


She Rides Her Bike

Porizkova loves riding her bike, especially while exploring new places on vacation. "It's been shown that cycling reduces anxiety and depression," says Jaclyn Kubiak, PT, DPT. "Mainly, because you can make it fun. You get the added benefit of being outdoors or you can go do it with friends. You can change the intensity for it yourself," he adds. "It can be as easy as you want or as hard and enduring as you want."


Personal Trainer

Porizkova has a personal trainer to help get her in the best—and strongest—shape. "Staying in shape after menopause takes a lot of frickin' work. Especially when you have wonky hips," she says. "I've had to cut down on my Pilates since I came back for the jungle shooting #beyondtheedge because my hips won't cooperate. What I'm doing instead, for now, is some serious PT. I found an amazing personal trainer at my local Crunch, Shelly, who alternates hip PT with strength training. But because I've been doing so much traveling, my results are inconsistent. So, yes, there are drawbacks to aging. One has to work a lot harder on things that were taken for granted. On the outside. On the inside, however, all the hard work already done is finally paying off. I may not be as strong or as supple or as smooth as in my youth, but I am comfortable with my vulnerabilities, conscious of my weaknesses, proud of my strengths – and best of all, have the wisdom to put it all together and delight in the results."
