Kate Upton said her bikini fitness secrets are a gluten-free Paleo-style diet and workouts combining cardio exercise and weight training, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Fortunately, the bodacious Upton loves to work out.
“I love going to the gym,” said Kate. “I try to go three times a week. I live a very stressful lifestyle, so it’s good for me to work all that stress out.”
Kirsch said Upton is very disciplined about her diet and workout regimen.
“Everyone wants to know if Kate is disciplined with her diet and exercise, and the answer is that she is amazing about her diet,” Kirsch told Elle.
“She does a few egg whites with spinach for breakfast, and when she wants to, she does a 48-hour cleanse.”
David is a proponent of a gluten-free diet, saying eliminating gluten not only enhances weight loss, but improves mood.
“It’s sugar, alcohol, and processed carbs that we avoid,” said Kirsch, author of The Ultimate New York Body Plan.
“I don’t have Kate on a specifically gluten-free diet, but by the nature of what she eats, it is gluten free.”
Kirsch, who whipped Upton into shape for her two Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover shoots, said intense circuit-training workouts are the foundation of their exercise sessions.
David said everyone can benefit from fat-blasting circuit-training workouts in as little as 10 minutes.
“Make time for one or two circuits first thing in the morning,” said Kirsch, creator of The Ultimate New York Body Plan workout DVD.
“No one can tell me they don’t have 10 or 15 minutes extra minutes a day. I don’t believe it. You don’t have to do 90 minutes.”
Despite having made the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue two years in a row, Upton has been widely criticized for being too meaty to be a supermodel.
Kate, who has been been called a “lardy, fat pig” and a tacky-looking bimbo, is shocked that her weight is such a hot topic, but has answered the criticism by proclaiming that she embraces her body just as it is.
“It’s kind of funny to think, ‘The news is talking about whether I’m fat or not,” she said. “It was hard at first. I really just live my life. I love my body.”
