They max their magnesium
When the man who hones Victoria’s Secret models speaks, we listen. That man – Dan Roberts – tells us that he takes a magnesium supplement every day. Dietitian Helen Bond vouches for this. ‘Magnesium is important for releasing energy from food for muscles to contract, for nerves to function and to maintain healthy bones,’ she says.
Your Turn Whole grains, nuts, seeds, pulses and seafood are the best sources. (You’ll need 23 almonds, one banana, 30g of raw spinach, 85g of mackerel and an avo to meet your 300mg a day.) Falling short? If you take a supplement, don’t go overboard – no more than 400mg. OD-ing will not turn you into a Hadid overnight.
