While supermodel Helena Christensen says she's obsessed with food, she doesn't attribute her smoking good looks to any trendy superfoods. In the April issue of InStyle UK, the gorgeous 40-year-old gives her rigorous fitness regimen credit for maintaining her model body and says, "I'm in better shape than I was at 25 because I'm actually doing something physical."
She's leaving it open for us to assume that she didn't exercise when she was in her 20s, and it's hard to believe that she looked as good as she did without working out. Helena explains, "I'm super lucky with my metabolism. I have to be realistic — that might not always be the situation. That's why I chose really intense training."
Helena is smart to use exercise for revving up her metabolism. While her statement that she "eats like a pig" might make some of us a little jealous, I love Helena's realistic attitude that her amazing metabolism might not last forever. She's chosen a healthy way of dealing with that reality, and she looks fantastic.
