ANEven Gisèle Bundchen, today a model of self-discipline and conscious nutrition, did not always lead a healthy life. In an interview with British Vogue, the model revealed that she drowned panic attacks in alcohol in the early years of her career. She started the day with coffee and cigarettes, and at night she emptied a bottle of wine. “From the outside it looked like she had it all, even though she was only 22. Deep down, I felt like she had hit rock bottom,” Bummel recalled of early major shows, parties and her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio.
A friend eventually recommended that the Brazilian seek the advice of a naturopath. He banned caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, sugar, and Bundchen dairy products. At that time, the forty-one-year-old woman changed her diet to vegetables, nuts, and lean meat. “The decision was easy. The naturopath asked me if I wanted to live or not,” Bundchen said. Today, healthy eating doesn’t stop at the model’s family. Bundchen’s husband, football player Tom Brady, and their children Benjamin and Vivian eat mainly vegetables, whole grains and low-fat meats.
