What celebrity trainers REALLY eat for breakfast
-Jul 3, Caroline Blight, Nutrition -
Have you ever wondered if it’s time to change up your breakfast regime for a healthier option? If so, we have turned to several of the world’s top A-list trainers to find out how they like to start the day…
They are known for sculpting the bodies of some of the most beautiful people on the planet – and are properly fit themselves! Celebrity trainers can only reach their acclaim by proving their methods work.
And, as adverts for their regimes too, are the perfect people to get some breakfast inspo from.
Unlike many of us, shovelling down some toast or grabbing a bowl of cereal as we put on our makeup, celeb trainers celebrate breakfast as the fuel in our engines for the day ahead.
Maybe if we could look like some of the stars they have helped we would even consider getting out of bed five or ten minutes earlier to make some of these…
Name: Tracy Anderson
Clients: Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow
Breakfast: Tracy is famed for her ‘method’ which changes up your work out every 10 days to keep muscle groups challenged. And she likes plenty of variety in her diet too but her go to for getting a blast of nutrients first thing is a green smoothie. “This really is the best way to start my day – my shake has a fantastic amino acid profile and best of all, no soy for protein. I like the vanilla flavor and usually add chocolate syrup. When I want to be a bit more healthy, I opt for the kale and banana combo.”
Name: Ramona Braganza
Clients: Halle Berry, Jessica Alba
Breakfast: For someone who’s programme involves 3 Cardio segments, 2 Circuits of Strength training and 1 Core Segment daily a good breakfast is needed as fuel. Ramona advocates eating properly rather than calorie cutting in order to back up the work you do in the gym. Hers is a retro breakfast your grandparents probably enjoyed – with a healthier twist. “Two eggs, two slices of turkey bacon, and a slice of wheat toast with a little jam. I also have a cup of coffee.”
Name: Harley Pasternak
Clients: Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Megan Fox
Breakfast: He’s got a celebrity fan list which almost reaches triple digits and is the go-to trainer in Hollywood. So it’s no surprise he is a fan of the Tinstletown mantra – protein, protein, protein – which makes up his breakfast!
“Protein in your morning meal improves appetite control by reducing cravings and preventing overeating later in the day.” But his current fave is a root vegetable he makes in to a kind of porridge. “Instead of oatmeal, jicama hot cereal. It’s higher in fiber than oatmeal and has more vitamin C than an orange. Shredded jicama, cinnamon, apple, walnuts, whey and a little water.”
Name: David Kirsch
Clients: Heidi Klum and Kate Upton
Breakfast: Supermodels love his diet and fitness plans – possibly beacsue he actually advocates eating not skipping meals. “When people want to lose weight, they stop eating and they shut down their body. Eat!” Taking his own advice he start his day with a power breakfast: an egg-white omelet with mushrooms, spinach, turkey, and some avocado.
Name: Amy Rosoff Davis
Clients: Selena Gomez
Breakfast: Amy likes to eat with her clients when she’s not putting them through their paces, and shares quite the feast with Selena: “Half of a healthy breakfast burrito of scrambled eggs, chorizo, avocado, rice, and beans; or, full-fat Greek yogurt and granola.”
