When you’re a busy Victoria’s Secret Pink model like Rachel Hilbert (pictured above on the right) and Zuri Tibby (on the left), you need eating habits that will keep you fueled. These ladies are constantly on the go from photo shoots to appearances. Plus, they work out often to keep fit. So how do the ladies make sure they are getting all of the nutrients they need? During the launch of the brand’s first sports bra, Hilbert and Tibby told us what Victoria’s Secret Pink models eat in a day.
“I have a trainer that literally kicks my butt,” Hilbert tells SELF. So eating a breakfast that will power her through a workout is essential. Hilbert whips up hard-boiled eggs or reaches for a whole avocado, depending on how much time she has. “For lunch, I try to get in some proteins—either lean chicken, fish, or a salad,” says Hilbert. Her dinners are also well-rounded with poultry and lots of vegetables. And carbs are not off-limits. Hilbert avoids the processed ones and reaches for complex carbohydrates. “In between meals, I try to reach for vegetables and nuts, but that’s hard for me to do since I love chips,” says Hilbert. It’s OK, Hilbert we feel you.
Tibby’s meal plan is also relatable. She starts her mornings off with a hot cup of coffee and keeps things simple with eggs and toast. “I really like avocado toast and bacon,” says Tibby. Now that’s what we call balance. “For lunch, I’ll have a chicken salad and a smoothie,” says Tibby. “Throughout the day, I like to snack on nuts, bananas, and yogurt.” And for dinner, she likes to eat out to mix things up.
Of course, these models don’t stick to a strict diet all the time. There’s room for sweets and cheese as well. “On a cheat day I have to have ice cream,” says Tibby. “Oh, and lots of whipped cream!” She’s not alone. Hilbert is also a fan of ice cream, but on her cheat days she makes room for a big slice of pizza. “There’s this one place in New York City that makes these deep dish pizzas that melt in your mouth.” OK, so the next time we’re chowing down on pizza and ice cream, we’ll remember the Victoria’s Secret Pink models do it, too.
