Claudia Schiffer needs to exercise and watch her diet to keep fit even with her busy schedule. After 20 years in the modelling business, and being Mum to two young children, Claudia admits she still has to work at keeping her statuesque figure. “I enjoy good food very much,” she says, “and I’m not one of those women who can eat whatever they want. I have to watch myself very carefully and think about what I eat all the time. I don’t drink alcohol – not even to celebrate an occasion – and I steer clear of caffeine. If I don’t it’s a disaster.”
On a typical morning she will have fruit for breakfast, along with tea and honey. “For lunch I try to have salads or vegetables or soups,” she says, “and for dinner, chicken salad or tuna salad or a bit of regular chicken or vegetables. I try very hard to eat healthy. And it’s not only for my figure. Sure, I would like to keep it the way it is. But it’s also for the energy. I have much more energy when I’m thinner. Sweets make me very tired. Heavy food, lots of meat, makes me tired.”
Her main ideas about healthy food are evinced in her diet 5+. Diet provides with 1200 kilocalories a day and leads to rapid weight loss – about 6.5 – 9 lbs per course. It is tasty, low-calorie and balanced diet. You won’t feel hungry. “5+” means that dieting period is 5 days. At the 6th day you are allowed to eat something tasty (like compensation), what you want, but only till 4 p.m., and then you can only drink water.
The Claudia’s Diet will satisfy everyone, who likes fruits and vegetables. Also, this diet allows to drink water without limits, but water should be not aerated.
