They max their magnesium

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - COSMO COMPETITION -

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.
