When it comes to hot bodies and flawless skin, supermodels like Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr and Kendall Jenner know how to make us envious.
So, how do they do it?
Firstly: Genetics — no one gets to look like that without winning the genetic jackpot. But even with their pre-programmed destiny to look downright flawless, these supermodels often still follow strict diet and exercise routines, often prescribed by their personal trainers and nutritionists.

Here, we rounded up seven weight-loss tips that supermodels have shared over the years — from the creative to the crazy.
“I’m not really one for fad diets, I like to keep things simple. I grew up on a farm, so if I want to detox or shed some weight or eat cleanly, I’ll cut out carbs and refined sugars. So that’s my tip for eating well: nothing extreme,” Huntington-Whiteley told Vogue.co.uk in 2012.
“The first step is eating healthy. I predominantly eat organic when I can. I eat extremely healthy because when I do, I have more energy. I love spinach, avocado, lots of greens and broccoli,” Kerr said.
“I drink a lot of protein shakes and do a lot of weight-lifting,” Iman told Modelinia of her regime.
“I usually start my day off with a cup of detox tea," the famous model and reality star told E! News. “I have like 12 cups a day.”
“I used to always box and run, and with boxing, I would build a lot of muscle. After I had my son I started doing ballet. It makes you long and lean — it’s like the Pilates look. One thing that I’ve always done since I was younger is suck in my stomach. I think that gave me [ab] muscles. I don’t even think about it — like when you sit in a car, use your core to sit up straight. You can work out sitting in a car! I did leg and butt exercises during my pregnancy, but I haven’t done anything since I had my baby because I don’t want to damage my stomach muscles. It’s better to wait a while,” Kroes told Style.com.
Swanepoel said that she often eats more but increases her exercise routine in order to get in shape before a runway show: “I do boxing. I do Pilates on the machine. I do a lot of lunges," the model said. "I ran on the beach this year, which really tightens everything up.”
“I’ve been using a Megaformer — it is like the Pilates reformer with a carriage in between two platforms and you change the springs for resistance — so you have to resist these pulleys to strengthen your body. It is basically a torture machine!”
