As with many supermodels, Gigi is a protein fiend—and incorporates plenty of it into her diet to cultivate a lean physique. The supermodel told Harper's BAZAAR US that she loves scrambled eggs and toast as it's an "easy go-to". She also said "My boyfriend, being British, got me into breakfast beans, so that's what I've been eating lately".Her favourite salad is an arugula salad, which involves plenty of rocket and Parmesan cheese, and her favourite snacks are "salami, chips, hummus, carrots and fruit", according to SELF. Plenty of models have openly discussed omitting caffeine for their health and well-being, but Hadid has long stated her dependence on coffee to get through the day—something we can definitely relate to.
As much as Hadid loves comfort foods, the supermodel often needs to whip herself into shape for a job, and it's been reported that she drinks smoothies to help shred any excess weight. Though plenty of models' diets involve some method of fasting, Hadid has been open about the fact that starving yourself is never a viable option—for your health, or for your sanity.Speaking to SELF in 2016, Hadid said "If I don't have milk and bread and eggs, then I can't deal."
While Gigi might be occasionally liberal with some of the foods she eats, the eldest Hadid sister knocks it out of the park in the fitness department. Attending Gotham Gym in New York City, Hadid's trainer fills her workout schedule with plenty of alternating workouts—but her favourite of all of them is boxing, similar to other VS girls like Candice Swanepoel.
In an interview with SELF, Gigi's trainer Rob Piela said: "Gigi loves boxing, so we use it in a lot of her workouts."
"If boxing isn't your thing, [you] can swap it out for another cardio activity. I've always liked jump rope—it's great for legs—or running [if you prefer]."
"You just want to keep your heart rate up the entire time".
Piela shared one of Hadid's workouts with SELF, involving "three minutes of [non-stop] boxing, and then one minute of doing a lot of different leg-focused strength-training moves".
Alongside boxing, Hadid focuses on strength and muscle training, including building her core muscles.
Piela told SELF that he even remotely coaches Gigi for motivation when she's on the road, saying: "She's a great friend of mine. We FaceTime when she's on the road. The motivation and support, no matter where she may be, is critical."
