At 38 years of age, US-born Caprice Bourret, the famous lingerie model, still gets plenty of modeling jobs. If, in this sense, she doesn’t have a care in the world, when it comes to her body and, in particular, staying in such great shape, she has to pay extra attention because, to state the obvious, keeping weight off is harder than it was before she turned 30, she explains in a piece with the Daily Mail
Caprice, as she’s known in the UK mostly, has always been a thin girl and did not have to put that much of an effort into staying that way. However, things started to change after turning 30, she says, which means she had to start paying more attention to working out. Also then, she changed her diet and has become, unfortunately, obsessed with her weight. However, her biggest ally is regular exercise, of which she gets more than plenty every day.
“Before I was 30 I used to be able to get away with not doing much exercise but now I have to work harder to stay slim. I run a lot, I play tennis three times a week, I do weights at home and I take my chihuahuas for a two mile brisk walk round Hyde Park every day too. I pretty much make sure I do some exercise every day,” Caprice reveals for the Mail. This is actually the model’s strongest suit, since she’s not the type to restrict herself when it comes to eating.
“After more than 15 years modeling it’s inevitable that I’ve become obsessed with my weight. I stand in front of the mirror every single day of my life and look myself up and down. I can look at my body and I can tell that I’ve put on two pounds without getting on the scales. And when I get on them I’m right every single time. My job means I’m very self-disciplined about what I eat. I occasionally pig out on pizzas or nachos but most of the time I’m sensible,” Caprice explains.
The only golden rule she abides by is that she tries never to eat after 5 o’clock in the afternoon. She doesn’t do desert that often either, and, if she has to attend an event at night, she has a piece of fish and some salad.
