Adriana Lima showed off her washboard abs on Instagram while exercising with two of her Victoria’s Secret supermodel friends.

Judging by her six-pack abs, it’s hard to believe Lima is the mother of two small children.

Adriana’s post-baby weight loss secrets were a low carb Paleo-style diet and boxing workouts, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

Lima said she works very hard to maintain her hot bikini body.

“I work out and I look after myself,” said Adriana. “I take this seriously because it’s my job.”

Adriana, who has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000, trains with former boxer Michael Olajide, author of Sleekify: The Supercharged No-Weights Workout.

Lima’s workouts combine muscle-sculpting moves with fat-blasting cardio exercise and shadow-boxing, said Olajide.

But exercise is only part of the formula for a sizzling bikini body. The 5-foot-10 Lima, who weighs 135 pounds, follows a low carb Paleo diet that’s low in sugar.

Adriana’s diet features high-quality proteins like eggs, grilled meat and chicken and low-sugar fruits like blueberries and blackberries. She’s also drinks plenty of hydrating coconut water throughout the day.

The Paleo diet works well for women because it reduces the blood-sugar spikes and hormone surges that fuel overeating, mood swings and weight gain, said Esther Blum, author of Cavewomen Don’t Get Fat.

Paleo has a huge celebrity following, including Megan Fox and Jessica Alba.

Low-carb, high-fat diets like the Paleo, Atkins and ketogenic diets accelerate weight loss and prevent cancer, diabetes and heart disease, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.

Adriana Lima’s beauty secrets include not over-washing her hair, and making sure she eats plenty of antioxidant-rich foods like vegetables and blueberries.

“Everything that goes in to your body is going to show up on the outside,” Lima said. “If you want your hair to grow faster, you can take flax seed oil or a flax seed pill.”
