We already know about the stunning couple's strict dietary demands -- no white sugar, white flour, gluten or MSG -- but it turns out their healthy eating habits extend even while they're on vacation. According to raw food chef Joanne Gerrard Young, who's cooked for the two at their home in Costa Rica for the last five years, Gisele and Tom do a 80/20 raw diet during their getaways.
"They don’t always do raw, but since it's so easy to do in Costa Rica, we do a 80/20 raw diet, with big colorful salads and lots of fresh veggies," Young tells Well + Good. "'G' likes to eat vegetarian sometimes, so we’ll do a grain separate from the protein, and she's totally into juice cleanses, so she'll do about one per year."
Young says the pretty pair eat their biggest meal at lunch and then a smaller dinner, and actually want to abstain from dessert.
"They didn't want to do desserts anymore, for healthy eating purposes, but I shared all of my raw vegan desserts with them and they love them and have them all the time," Young says.
Although, to be fair, a sample brunch menu from Young doesn't seem half bad -- dishes might include a Superfood Green Smoothie, Swiss Chard Summer Rolls with Sweet & Spicy Almond Sauce, Pineapple Cucumber Gazpacho, Creamy Coconut Noodles, and Coconut Mango Cream Pie.
In January, fans were shocked when Gisele and Tom's personal chef, Allan Campbell, revealed the couple's strict dietary restrictions to Boston.com. Campbell said the family eats 80 percent organic and fresh vegetables, and that Tom's diet is actually stricter than his supermodel wife. The NFL pro has ruled out mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers and eggplants from his diet, in addition to the no white sugar, white flour, gluten, or MSG rules that his wife also subscribes to. Tom, 38, also does not consume coffee or other caffeinated beverages, fungi, dairy, or most fruits.
... But there's no arguing with the results. Gisele's latest Instagram post on Tuesday shows her in a tiny bikini, flaunting her flawless bod.
Meanwhile, Tom has no problem staying on course when it comes to his eating.
"I've always been pretty disciplined," he said on WEEI's The Dennis & Callahan Morning Show in January. "When I was in the second or third grade, I was going to the gym with my dad in the morning and my sisters. They were all athletes. I remember I'd have to try to do 25 push-ups, 25 sit-ups, and 100 jump ropes every day."
"For one reason or another, I never drank any coffee or anything like that. I never tried it," he surprisingly added.
