3 Model-Approved Weight-Loss Tips That Deliver Major Results
Autumn is not really peak time for working out and eating right (it *is* the season of hearty food, baked puddings and giant food-baby hiding knits, after all). That said, dropping the ball now when it comes to staying fit and healthy makes it that much harder to drum up motivation later. (Until you see bikinis dropping in store, that is...)
In the interests of keeping in shape as it cools down outside, we're looking to our favourite models for an insight into their routines (courtesy of their very expensive trainers and nutritionists) and for advice on how to take our basic regimes to the next level. Think of this trio of model-approved weight-loss tips as your secret weapons in slimming down.

Sticking to the same type of workout eventually becomes less demanding on your body energy-wise, so to keep progressing with weight loss you'll need to mix things up. Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn all subscribe to a combo of boxing and ballet (among other activities) to keep themselves in shape. Even adding in 20-minutes of sprints to your usual gym routine can help push you through a plateau.
Committing to a super-strict nutrition plan can often end in tears, unless you have the willpower of a god (in which case, share your secrets please). Indulging in the occasional treat can be an effective way of fending off a junk food binge, but store-bought "healthy" options are often anything but. Make like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and get in the kitchen—you'll have 100% control over the ingredients. (Especially worth it if you're trying to kick a sugar addiction.)

Sometimes a hectic workout schedule isn't a good thing... Intense exercise can be incredibly taxing on your body (slowing down weight loss and even encouraging weight gain), so if you're at CrossFit five days a week, you may want to consider adding some R&R to your schedule. Gisele Bundchen opts for yoga, but meditation (try the Headspace app, free) tai chi and even just walking can help you find balance.
