We’ve read all about Victoria’s Secret models amping up their workouts in the lead up to the once-a-year runway show, but increasing their food intake? It’s not something you hear about as often (although Taylor Hill just recently admitted it too), but we are absolutely all ears.
Martha Hunt has revealed that while it’s all really clean food, she actually eats a lot more in the 72 hours leading up to the show, upping her protein intake for every meal.

“I’ll have Greek yogurt or eggs for breakfast, sushi for lunch, and salmon/chicken/or meat with vegetables and healthy carbs for dinner,” Hunt told The New Potato.
“I eat more than usual, because the workouts burn so many calories. Most of my snacks involve peanut butter or almond butter. I’m bad about eating my biggest meal at night; I know that’s not the healthiest thing to do.”
We reckon she can let that one slide, though.
So just how often did Hunt exercise during the three weeks before the 2016 show?
“I probably worked out five times a week. I don’t know if I will go that hard again!” she admitted.
Besides getting her into incredible shape, the new meal and exercise plan had some additional benefits for Hunt, who noticed her hair and nails growing faster than ever, right before the show. She put it down to the extra protein and healthier food choices.
When she’s not prepping for the VS runway, Hunt works out three times a week with a trainer, and practices transcendental meditation to keep zen.
Yes, she’s the picture of health, but her ultimate food day is pretty identical to ours, which makes us love her even more.
“[It’s] lemon ricotta pancakes in the morning, sushi for lunch, a classic homemade bolognese for dinner, and a fruit cobbler with ice cream for dessert.”
