Bella’s Struggle With Lyme Disease
Bella was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012. She had to give up her lifelong Olympic dream because of this disease. She was also robbed off her teenage years. When everyone was enjoying being a teenager, Bella was struggling with her illness.
Recalling the time when she first got sick, Bella says,
It was a dark time. I was exhausted all the time. It affected my memory so I suddenly wouldn’t remember how to drive to Santa Monica from Malibu where I lived. I couldn’t ride. I was just too sick. And I had to sell my horse because I couldn’t take care of it. I couldn’t get out of bed for six days. And my brain would get all foggy, and I couldn’t see. That was the hardest time of my life.
Despite struggling with her illness so much, Bella fought through. Modelling was difficult because she was often exhausted and had to take her medications. But she persevered. Today, Bella has become the most in-demand top model of her generation.
Bella Hadid Diet
Bella Hadid is the most relatable person ever when it comes to dieting secrets. The secret to Bella Hadid diet and fitness is that there is no secret. Revealed by Bella herself, there is no Bella Hadid diet secret. She likes to eat and cannot restrict herself. She does not believe in going on diets. She says it can drive you crazy. And nobody wants to go crazy. So Bella eats whatever she wants and whenever she wants in portions. When asked about her top diet tip, Bella said "If you want to have a piece of bread, go have a piece of bread".
The woman loves her pizza. And her Instagram is a witness to this love. Though don’t be fooled by it. Bella does not eat tons of junk food as portrayed through her posts on the photo sharing website. She maintains a healthy and balanced diet.
According to her nutritionist, Dr. Charles Passler,
Bella Hadid diet is low on carbohydrates and high on protein to help the beautiful model stay fit and lean. “It’s adequate protein, adequate fat and lots and lots and lots of non-starchy vegetables. That is typically the most bulletproof, easiest, soundproof way to make sure that somebody stays on track,” says Passler on Bella’s diet.
If you will take a look into Bella Hadid’s fridge, you will find that it is full of dietician approved food items. Vegetables, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, baby carrots, celery sticks, cashew and almond butter, hummus, and yogurt are common residents of the model’s fridge. If you will notice these are all protein rich foods.
She also has a stash of Siggi yogurt. It is an Icelandic yogurt which is similar to Greek yogurt in its nutritional values but has a higher level of protein and tastes better.
Bella has low blood sugar, which means she has to eat constantly. But if she eats too much, she feels tired. So as a solution to this problem Bella eats a whole lot of protein. This keeps her feeling full for a longer time.
Whenever Bella has to reach out for a snack, her favorite go-to option is celery sticks and protein rich cashew butter. This forms a highly nutritious snack with multiple health benefits.
Bella Hadid diet also includes green juices. Bella keeps a stock of green juices in her kitchen and when she is out working, she orders a lot of green juices to get her through the day. She also keeps ginger shots in a cooler with her while she is on a shoot. She drinks one whenever she starts feeling low.
Bella has followed in the footsteps of her mother when it comes to having a healthy lifestyle. One habit that she still follows from her friendly tradition is having an early dinner. When she was a child, she used to have dinner with her family at 6 pm. She maintains this tradition of an early dinner and takes hers at 7.30 pm.
Bella Hadid Diet Plan
Bella Hadid diet is balanced, low on carbs and high on proteins. The Bella Hadid diet plan in a day is:
- Breakfast: Eggs and sausage
- Lunch: Salmon or chicken and vegetables; if not these, then pasta
- Dinner: Sautéed kale
Bella Hadid Workout
Bella Hadid starts her day with stretching. She stresses on the importance of eating right with a serious workout schedule.
On her pre and post workout diet habit, Bella says,
I count on a smoothie, a juice or a protein drink 30 minutes before the session. After the session I eat something full of protein like chicken and wholegrain rice. It's ideal to strengthen the muscle mass and to increase the effects of the session.
Bella is very dedicated to her fitness and is a regular at gym. She likes to train in the Gotham gym in NYC with her trainer Rob Piela. She likes to train for 2 to 3 hours daily and increases the hours spent further when she is preparing for her fashion show.
Bella likes to do yoga but feels it is too slow for her. Yoga calms her mind but she likes to get in on some serious action. Her go-to workout is boxing. She is very much obsessed with it and likes to include either boxing or boxing related elements to the Bella Hadid workout. Bella revealed that the credit for her washboard abs goes to boxing techniques she employs in her daily workout routine.
Usually the Bella Hadid workout starts with 20 minutes of non-stop running followed by a boxing session and weight training which targets her abs and glutes.
Bella doesn’t believe in following the same routine every day. She likes to have fun even in the gym. She mixes her routines which often include a lot of cardio and Pilates other than boxing.
Running is a form of cardio and Bella loves to run. She is often captured in the act by the paparazzi.
Seeing the young model’s interests and requirements, Rob Piela created a special 25 minute leg cardio for the Hadid sisters. This workout includes 3 minutes of boxing, and then 1 minute of doing any combination of leg-focused strength-training moves from the following:
- Squats – 20 reps
- Donkey kicks – 12 reps each side
- Plié squats – 12 reps each side
- Banded squat walks – 12 reps each side
As a practice Bella stretches her body before and after the Bella Hadid workout for 7 to 10 minutes so as to get the maximum benefit out of her intense workout sessions. Bella also states that after an intense workout you should keep moving.
Like most of us, Bella too does not wake up every morning feeling very enthusiastic about going to gym. But she comes around and pushes herself when she is there. She says, “The key to a successful workout is to put in 100% from the start to the end of a workout. There is nothing better than to push yourself to the limit, while making the most of it. Going to the gym for two hours with only 50% motivation is the best way of erasing the feeling of accomplishment and well-being that boosts self-confidence that you get from a workout."
Bella has faced her own share of difficulties. It could have been easy to just give up. But that’s not Bella Hadid. She keeps herself motivated with the support of her loved ons.
