X-Diet: You already know that the first step to being fit and sexy is to be slim. The second is to maintain your ideal weight over time. Easy to say, but difficult to do, right…?
Many celebrities, like Jennifer Lopez, Charlitze Terhon, Maria Sharapova, Jason Statham, Bradley Cooper and John Travolta look still beautiful in their 40s and 50s. When you study how they do it, you learn that they all follow simple nutritional hacks, such as: avoiding processed food, reducing carbs and sugars, eating good fats and detoxing regularly.
Here, you learn why refined food is bad, how Victoria Secrets models eat, and what you can do about it today.
WHY PROCESSED FOOD IS SO BAD?
Yes… Unless you live in a bio-farm, it’s difficult to avoid processed food. It is everywhere: from the coffee you drink in the morning, to those bags of salad, fruits and bread that you buy in the supermarket. Any piece of food that is preserved or transformed in some way – through mechanical or chemical processes – is processed. But, why is it so bad?
Simple! Most packaged food contain chemicals and preservatives. When they accumulate in your body, they accelerate aging and may cause serious health issues, including cancers. They also degenerate your cellular health making your skin, hairs and nails look older.
Victoria Secrets models, or their expensive coaches, know this well, and avoid processed food as much as they can.

The cellular damage that sugar causes will be explained in the next XDIET post. But you already know that refined sugar (the white one) is deprived of its main nutrients. So, it only adds dead calories into your body. Replacing it with honey is a smart, healthy and tasty strategy to supplanting refined food with more natural one. It’s that simple, and that effective…
XFIT ACTION: SO, WHAT SHOULD I EAT?
These are simple hacks that supermodels and most celebrities do. Apply them in your daily diet too:
- Try to eliminate everything that is not fresh and natural. Avoid products wrapped in plastic
- Always read the ingredients labels and don’t buy products containing things you don’t know, understand or pronounce
- Make a weekly reserve of fresh fruits and vegetables in you local farmers’ market. Choose seasonal and unpacked items when possible
- For your proteins, use trusted stores with fresh, hormone-free and wild-caught products
These simple hacks may cost you a bit more time and money. However, they allow you to reduce the amount of chemicals and preservative that you put in your body. They also give you more energy, and make your skin and hairs more radiant and beautiful, just like a celebrity.
