Ready For Your Summer Body? Super Model Joan Smalls, Shares 3 Rules For A Hot Body

Looking to shed a few extra pounds this summer, but not sure where to start? Take a cue from a top model! Puerto Rican beauty and Victoria&#39s Secret Angel Joan Smalls was in Ney York City recently and shared some basic rules on how she always looks so thin and trim with E! Online. So if you want to look model-ready while you still have a few weeks left of summer, read on for Joan&#39s three rules for maintaining a totally hot body.

1.    Do Cardio. Whether you like to run, walk or dance, cardio is key. “Cardio is important,” Joan says. “I used to box, and still do some at times.” Our tip: Instead of taking an elevator to work, take the stairs. Is your commute short? Opt for a quick bike ride, rather than jumping in your car. Every bit of cardio helps.

2.    Eat Veggies. “Eat veggies, lots and lots of veggies,” she says “A good tip is to substitute some of the larger portions of what you love, and that&#39s not always best for you, with more veggies.” Our suggestion? Next time you eat a burger, swap out the fries for a small salad. Not sure what to have for lunch? Add a veggie platter to a lean protein to keep you full and satisfied until dinnertime!

3.    Don&#39t Diet. “I don&#39t believe in dieting because I&#39m Puerto Rican, and it&#39s really hard to not eat what you love,” she says. “It&#39s in my blood to eat rice and beans, so I&#39ve learned to manage portions because you get to eat a little bit of what you absolutely love and crave.” Just ensure you&#39re eating what you love in moderation. So instead of eating an entire slice of that chocolate cake you crave cut it in half. You&#39ll still satisfy your craving without consuming the unnecessary calories.

Noted! We&#39ll definitely be keeping these healthy tips in mind as we finish out the summer.
