Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life
Supermodel and philanthropist Gisele shares personal stories, insights, and photos to explore lessons she thinks have helped shape her life. Her journey began in southern Brazil, growing up with five siblings, playing volleyball, and rescuing dogs and cats around her hometown.
In fact, she only wanted to become either a professional volley player or a veterinarian. But at the age of 14, fate suddenly intervened her dreams in the form of a modeling scout, who spotted Gisele in São Paulo.
Four years later, her appearance in Alexander McQueen’s memorably rain-soaked London runway show in spring 1998 launched her spectacular career as a fashion model and put an end to the “heroin chic” era of fashion.
Since then, she has appeared in almost 400 ad campaigns and on over 1200 magazine covers. Gisele has walked in more than 470 fashion shows for the most influential brands in the world. I addition she has become an icon, leaving a lasting mark on the fashion industry.
But until now, few people have gotten to know the real Gisele, a woman whose private life stands in dramatic contrast to her public image.
In Lessons, she reveals for the first time who she is and what she’s learned over the past 37 years. It’s to help her live a meaningful life; a journey that takes readers from a childhood spent barefoot in small-town Brazil, to a successful career, motherhood, and marriage to quarterback Tom Brady.
Gisele Bundchen Diet
With her own organic vegetable garden, greens at every meal and a strict detox twice a year, Gisele Bündchen is the ultimate healthy-living guru. The supermodel and her family’s nutritionist and chef, Allen Campbell, lift the lid on the dietary regime that helps Gisele maintain her reputation as the world’s most clean-living model.
A vitamin-packed breakfast
To kick off the day with a flying start, the Bündchen family eat a breakfast packed with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Plenty of fruits and vegetables
As well as juices and smoothies, Gisele likes to make seasonal fruit platters to snack on, combining a variety of fruits in small quantities to ensure as many vitamins as possible.
From strawberries and raspberries to blackberries, blueberries, and kiwis, the supermodel sources all these ingredients from her very own organic vegetable garden.
Eighty percent of the family’s diet is composed of organic vegetables and whole grains, namely brown rice, quinoa, millet and beans which are cooked in natural coconut oil. On top of this, food products containing white sugar and white flour are banned from the house.
Red meat in moderation
When the family does eat meat, it’s lean meat: organic steak, duck and chicken. In terms of fish, family chef Allen mostly cooks wild salmon.
Eating dinner between 5:30 pm and 6 pm allows you to have an early night and gives your body plenty of time to digest your meal so that your stomach can rest while you sleep. By doing this, during the early hours, your body will be light and cleansed.
The supermodel has followed this routine for a long time, helping her maintain her envy-inducing lean, toned body from the moment she wakes up.
A cleanse twice a year
