First Lady Melania Trump may only be 49, but she certainly doesn’t look like it.
First lady Melania Trump sports a body enviable to most and when it comes to her diet, that slim figure is quite attainable. While the First Lady is very private about her personal life, she has, in interviews, offered the public a bit of insight into her daily diet, how she stays in shape and her favorite meal.
A former model, Melania is, of course, no stranger to a healthy lifestyle. She strives to eat seven pieces of fruit a day, all of which offer her the vitamins and minerals for her hair and skin. In the morning, her breakfast is made with only “a few ingredients and lots of vitamins in it.”
Frequently, Melania Trump will opt for a nutrient-filled smoothie or fiber-rich oatmeal, also choosing to supplement her diet with extra vitamins to benefit her hair and nails. “I take vitamins A, C, and E to keep my skin, hair, and nails healthy,” she revealed to Bella NYC. Water, moisturizer and sleep are also key for Melania’s youthful appearance, especially since she’s reportedly against Botox.
That doesn’t mean Melania is all about diet, but instead, balance. She explained, “I love chocolate and ice cream, and I have those things once in a while. It’s good to indulge cravings and your tastes once in a while…as long as you balance those things with healthy foods.” Sometimes, she’ll opt for a piece of dark chocolate for a snack or a glass of Diet Coke.
While she won’t “overindulge” in food (but the chicken parm from NYC’s Jean Georges (owned by 16 Michelin star chef Jean George) is reportedly her favorite) she also refuses to participate in diet fads.
As for her workout, Melania has listed ankle weights, pilates and tennis as some of her favorites, crediting them to getting her back in shape after Barron’s birth. Clearly, if we can’t afford Melania’s taste in fashion, we just might be able to afford her taste at the gym.
