Models are famous for their slim, trim and picture-perfect physiques. Although they are often stereotyped as not eating much or having disordered behaviors, there are many healthy ways for models to cut an enviable figure. Avoid any dangerous methods of weight loss in favor of following healthy tips and tricks from models who put their health first while still looking their best.

Watch Your Calories

To lose weight, models take in fewer calories than they burn off. Lose 1 to 2 pounds per week by cutting 500 to 1,000 calories from your daily diet. Models eat nutrient-rich, low-calorie foods that won't pile on the pounds. Body + Soul states that Miranda Kerr enjoys vegetables, salmon and quinoa to stay healthy and slim.

Reduce and Substitute

Reduce portion sizes and make substitutions to your daily menu to decrease caloric intake. Use low-fat milk in your oatmeal, ditch the sandwich for a salad and snack on apples instead of chocolate. Miranda Kerr's chef Kate McAloon says that Miranda eats a variety of foods but she watches how much she eats of them.

Get Moving

Exercise not only burns off calories for weight loss but also helps build muscle for a defined physique. Heidi Klum credited cardio for her weight loss after pregnancy; engage in cardio such as running or biking five times per week for 45-minute sessions. Strength-train two to three days per week, doing one to two exercises for each body part including the arms, shoulders, chest, legs and back.
