Like good wine beauty Cindy Crawford only prettier with age. This woman is 55 years old, and she looks 30. Her eyes sparkle, her skin and figure are beautiful. How did she manage to keep herself in shape after completing her supermodel career? It turned out that the point is not in one of the fashionable diets, but simply in a well-oiled routine of meaningful nutrition, in training and in love.
What Cindy Crawford Eats
The basic rule of the Crawford diet is simple: replace all processed foods with natural (“whole”) foods. “I don’t eat all sorts of rubbish, and I don’t eat a lot of packaged foods. On a typical weekday breakfast – a protein shake, which is prepared quickly from almond and coconut milk plus protein powder … For lunch – a vegetable salad, sometimes with chicken or fish, sometimes without. For dinner, we go to eat sushi or stay at home and I cook, for example, turkey meatballs with pasta, green salad and vegetables. “

Cindy uses snacks as a tool to support her throughout the day. She believes she makes the best decisions if she maintains proper blood sugar levels at all times. “In the afternoon I always have a small snack: almonds, an apple and a piece of cheese or hummus with celery. I always carry food in my bag. I hate the very idea that I can stay hungry when I’m hungry. “
It is very important for Crawford to have dinner with the whole family. Her husband Randy Gerber and kids, Presley and Kaia, don’t stick to the same rigid eating plan as her, but the supermodel doesn’t mind: “I love to eat with my family, and if they eat meatball pasta, I’ll just eat meatballs with spinach. Or I’ll make salmon and mashed potatoes with asparagus for them, but I won’t eat mashed potatoes myself. “

What does Cindy eat for dessert? Dark chocolate. “Every evening after dinner, I need a piece of dark chocolate. If I don’t have it, I can eat a hundred other foods and still not be happy. ” For a supermodel, chocolate is not only a delicacy, but also a sign to the body that food is over for today.
In 2010, she told one of the journalists: “My secret is that there are no secrets. I exercise, I eat. I do 80% good 80% of my time – and that’s achievable. ” In 2015, she announced that before having breakfast, she must definitely drink a mug of green tea. “I like green tea. I am a green tea person and I feel good with this feeling. My body wants green tea every morning. “

How Cindy Crawford trains
“I never wake up with the thought: “How I want to train today,” Cindy recently admitted in an interview. “When I was a model, I forced myself to do sports, to look good in a swimsuit… Now everything is different. ” Now she only maintains the habit of “being in sports” because training makes her feel good: “Knowing that I am strong has a huge impact on my mental health.”
Sometimes Cindy takes a break
Exercise Crawford is an alternation of cardio training and strength training. “Cardio exercises can include jumping on a trampoline, walking on a treadmill, or running. In Malibu, I even use a ladder for thisthat descends from the house to the beach. I put on my headphones, turn on an audiobook or music, and run on it for 20 minutes. I can go hiking or ride a bike with my husband, ”admits the supermodel of the 90s.
Cindy also regularly attends a pole dance studio in Los Angeles. “It’s so much fun doing it with friends. We feel so good together that I hardly feel embarrassed. Once a week, I definitely take a friend with me to train and talk to her – it’s such a wonderful multitasking. “

How the beauty world of Cindy Crawford works
From a 2017 interview with harpersbazaar.com: “We live on the beach in Malibu and here you can go anywhere in yoga attire. If I need to go to town for a meeting, I’ll wear pants. I don’t wear dresses and skirts, except when going to social events. If I put on heels and a belt, I feel tight. Chloe and Stella McCartney are my favorite brands.

I have a large wardrobe for clothes. There: about 100 pairs of shoes, 20 dresses, some nice bags and a lot of jeans, blouses and small jackets, mostly made of leather. Everything is “arranged” according to the principle “from light to dark”. There is also a place where I keep my wedding dress and the Versace dress I wore to the MTV Awards.

I spend no more than 5 minutes on my hair, if, of course, they have already been washed. At night, I usually pin them on the back of my head, grease the ends of my hair with serum and dry a couple of strands a little in the morning.
For the skin I use my own line of cosmetics. I love antioxidant and sun protection day cream. I spend up to 3 minutes on nude makeup. As I got older, I started using less makeupbecause my skin looks good and I’m not trying to hide it. I apply foundation, a little concealer and a little powder, then comb through my eyebrows and I finish the makeup with a little eye shadow, mascara, blush and lip gloss“.
