Isn’t it amazing that the former supermodel Christie Brinkley is 55 years old and she still looks perfect? It’s obvious that Christie still gets to the gym and takes care of herself, but what a lot of you may not know is that she has a penchant for organic vegetables and has her own vegetable garden. Here’s a sample day-in-the-life veggie-rich eating plan for Christie provided by Ok! Magazine:

Breakfast

4oz cup Activia (yogurt) = 110 calories

1 cup mixed berries = 70 calories

1 tablespoon ground flaxseed = 37 calories

1 cup coffee = 45 calories

2 tablespoons of light cream = 90 calories

Lunch

Half an avocado = 80 calories

Half a cup garbanzo beans = 90 calories

2 cups mixed greens = 60 calories

Dinner

6 ounces salmon = 300 calories

4 ounces steamed vegetables = 40 calories

These three meals are quite nutritious and there is evidence of calcium, protein and fruits and veggies but that’s only 922 calories a day! According to the Ok! Magazine consulting dietician, Amy Stephens, she thinks Christie needs to add some carbohydrates to her diet. Amy says,

“People don’t like to hear it, but they need carbs to keep energy up and prevent cravings. Half a cup of brown rice or whole wheat pasta would be a great addition.”

Adding the carbohydrates would definitely give Christie the extra calories she needs because 922 aren’t that much. All in all, Christie looks fabulous. And for the record, with all the organic gardening Christie does she surely gets her exercise; gardening burns approximately 275 calories an hour.

Another woman in great shape who dows a low carb diet!!!

I think that with 55 years old, if she would be lacking energy from carbs she would modify her diet, but obviously Atkins is working for her. Her menu is totally Atkins 2nd phase.

Unless she has a hypothyroid issue, there is something not right with the 922 calories. For someone who is about 6 ft. tall, her basal metabolic rate is most likely well over 1000 calories. She can't be on a caloric deficit diet or we will see her bones! Either she is not disclosing everything, or the writer is missing a piece of info.
