A Fitness Model’s Favorite Foods

I’m a personal trainer and a fitness model, and I maintain a body fat percentage of less than 6%. Nope, that’s not a typo; it is indeed a single digit. People say, “You must have to kill yourself at the gym to maintain that percentage,” but the truth is, I only work out 60-90 minutes a day, five days a week, including cardio. The real reason I stay so lean is because of the way I eat.

Here are a few of my diet staples–you’ll note a lot of lean protein and whole grains here:

    According to my calculations, once you have hit your target weight or bodyfat %, the calories to maintain it are not that much higher than at your previous body fat. Would you say the biggest key is to keep yourself in check once the target % is acheived, and that effort to maintain is similar to before ?
