Christie Brinkley Shares Her Tips to Stay Youthful
After 13 years since her last swimsuit photo shoot, American model and actress, Christie Brinkley will return to Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue this year!
The 63-year-old has definitely still got, looking like 20-something. She has shared her tips on how to maintain that killer bikini bod!
After trying some pretty weird diets in the past like juice fasting to eating one kind of food at a time, she explained to New York Magazine in 2015 that; "The only thing that really lasts is a well-balanced diet."
WARM WATER AND LEMON
To get revved up for the day, Christie has told the magazine that she found this next tip on her Instagram.
Brinkley puts a bit of manuka honey and cayenne pepper into her hot water with the juice of a whole lemon, then sips it every morning — before she even thinks about making a cup of coffee
THE RIGHT BREAKFAST
Brinkley said in a 2014 interview that she loves loves sheep-milk yogurt mixed with blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, papaya, chia seeds, raw oatmeal, and walnuts. To add a little more protein, she'll whip up an egg-white omelet with spinach and mushrooms. She's also a huge fan of avocado toast.
LIGHT LUNCH BUT FILL UP FROM SNACKS
Brinkley enjoys a salad for lunch whatever grain or bean was left over from dinner piled on top. Then, later in the afternoon, she'll make fresh juice using kale, lime juice, orange juice, and avocado and snack on a homemade pumpkin-seed mix made with Himalayan salt, walnuts, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, and dried raisins.
If she's hungry before lunch, an apple — sometimes with peanut butter — is her go-to post-breakfast snack.

The model’s favourite dinner dish is brown rice with lentils, roasted red and yellow peppers, and fennel with a sweet potato and a salad on the side. A ton of different veggies with grains — or, as she puts it, going for "as many colors as possible in a day" — is the goal. And she's not against imbibing while she eats: "I like a glass of red wine with dinner because it doesn't interfere with my sleep."
Brinkley has revealed that she indulges in one splurge every single day: a Gnosis Pom Açai raw chocolate bar.
