- Supermodel keeps herself trim on a very strict diet and exercise regime

Kate Upton has one of the best bodies in the world.
The blonde supermodel’s curves are so jaw-dropping that if you found yourself on the same beach as her, it would be tough not to gawp, no matter what sex you were.
But as you reach for your afternoon chocolate hobnob, rest assured that the 22 year old, who wears a US size 8 (UK size 12), is on an extremely strict diet and exercise regime to achieve that look.
Kate Upton, who appeared on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, lives by the ABC rule: No alcohol, bread or processed carbohydrates
Kate, who appeared on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, lives by the ABC rule: No alcohol, bread or processed carbohydrates, and goes through a 48-hour juice cleanse before every big film scene of photo shoot.
In a new interview with the Evening Standard magazine, Kate reveals that she eats lean and green meals every day, with only the occasional ‘cheat day’, where she indulges in salty fried food.
According to the newspaper, the star eats a combination of one whole egg and one white egg scrambled on a bed of spinach for breakfast, followed by a green juice and handful of almonds mid morning.
For lunch, she has grilled chicken, grilled vegetables and quinoa and then tops up with a protein bar late afternoon.
Kate only eats certain fruits – blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, kiwis and apples
Then for dinner she prepares a meal of sashimi of grilled chicken with a kale and cashew salad.
Fans of red meat will also be disappointed – Kate lives by the rule ‘if it flies or swims, it’s good,’ meaning bacon, steak and sausages are out of the question.
She told the paper: ‘For me it’s about being strong, having the strength to work ten-hour days and eating healthily.’
Even within the realms of healthy food, Kate has her limits – although most people would consider themselves virtuous for snacking on fruit, she only eats specific types, including blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, kiwis and apples.
Kate is seen as a role model for young women, who are often led to believe that super skinny is beautiful
But while Kate works hard at her figure, she is also keen to act as a role model for young women who are constantly faced with anorexic-looking models in high fashion magazines.
Along with stars like Kim Kardashian, she is spearheading a change in perceptions of beauty – showing that curvy is just as beautiful as super skinny.
She said: ‘I’m happy to be seen as a good example, if I can help girls who are going through body image issues, I think that’s amazing.’
