Cindy Crawford is 50 and fabulous, thanks to a low carb diet and regular exercise that includes Pilates, yoga and circuit-training workouts, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
Crawford maintains her supermodel physique by following a low-carb diet and working out three to four times a week. Low carb diets promote weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Cindy, a mom of two, said she eats well to be healthy, not just to be skinny. Cindy also indulges her guilty pleasures, which include dark chocolate.
"I love chocolate and I have some every day," Crawford said. "I like to get the Dagoba Chocodrops that are 74% cacao. I like that they are chip-sized, so a small handful satisfies."
Cindy's Workout Routine: Yoga, Pilates and Weightlifting
Cindy's workouts typically include cardio exercise such as running, spinning, stair-climbing, and hiking. She also does Pilates, yoga, lifts weights, and circuit-trains.
Yoga is anti-aging and promotes natural weight loss by reducing stress, sculpting lean muscles and suppressing appetite, said Jennifer Aniston’s yoga teacher, Mandy Ingber, author of the bestseller Yogalosophy.
Crawford confessed she was terrified of turning 50, but has learned to embrace aging.
Beauty changes as I get older. I've always found that beauty and confidence are synonymous.
If you feel confident, that's what people see. I always tell people to fake it until they make it."
Crawford, who admits to having undergone a few cosmetic procedures (including Botox), said consistent exercise, eating well, and having a positive attitude are critical for successful aging and authentic happiness.
"My goal in life is not to be happy all the time," said Cindy. "That's asking a lot. I just want to be present so I can experience whatever emotion is there. Sometimes it's joy, sometimes it's not joy, and I'm fine with that. I just want to be real."
