Gisele Bundchen Diet — Interview Vogue UK December 2011

Gisele Bundchen Talks About Her Success and Her Diet

>> In British Vogue's December 2011 issue, which she covers, Gisele Bundchen talks about her success. "Like I tell my five sisters, who don't work at it very hard at all, whatever you put in, you get out. I'm not afraid of working hard at anything, whatever it is. I just always want to be the best that I can."

She also talks about her husband of just under three years, Tom Brady: "He's such a gentle giant. I'm so proud of him. When I go to watch him play, I'm like this big cheerleader, jumping up and down for him. I was born such a passionate person. I don't know if that's my blessing or my curse!"

That passion extends to health and diet at the Bundchen-Brady household. For her 5-year-old stepson, Jack, and her 2-year-old son, Benjamin, sugar is a no-no: "My children, they are like white canvases. When Benjamin eats broccoli, he thinks it's dessert!" For Jack's last birthday, Bundchen made the cake herself with "cocoa powder and coconut oil and, you know, those dried things — what are they called? That's it! Dates — and I put them all in the processor, and whoosh! Delicious!"

Bundchen admits she will have an occasional ice cream cone or a couple of pieces of chocolate. But she hardly drinks: "Well, Tom, he doesn't drink at all, so what am I going to do, have a glass of wine by myself?" And she tries to limit red meat to once every 15 days or so. "I love meat. C'mon, I'm Brazilian! But I also love animals. So what I find really helpful — you might think I'm crazy — is that before I eat any meat I always take one second of silence to put my hands over it and bless it and be grateful at least that it was a life . . ."
