From bodycon dresses to plunging necklines, Denise Keller – model and TV host – looks simply amazing in the hottest fashion of any style like it was meant just for her.
Camera-trick or just pure hard work? We catch up with Denise who jet sets around the world on a madcap filming schedule for her top body sculpting secrets.
I know this may sound impossible to your readers, but is there one body part you dislike the most?
Every woman tries to hide some kind of unsightly body part with her clothes. “Wear black, it makes you slimmer!” they say, but the truth is, every morning, you wake up to find it staring right back at you in the mirror. I can relate to that everyday. All I have to do is turn around and tell myself ‘droopalicious’ is OK, like some kind of mantra to get through my day. What was once perky, is now droopy. Yes, my butt doesn’t look or feel 20-yrs anymore. Neither do my inner thighs.
That is just crazy! You look perfect to us! Seriously, what sort of exercise regime do we have to follow to get a body like yours?
I exercise everyday and run for an hour at least to get my heart pumping. I do this because I love to go out for great dinners with friends and family. I never really hold back on my diet, which means I need to work even harder at my body. Sometimes, when I’m really motivated on weekends, I do a full cardio session with weight training and conclude it with a good cat stretch on the mat. Yoga keeps me focused in my job. I love to exercise when my schedule permits but I rarely have a regular schedule on the road!
If you are on the road and unable to hit the gym, what are some tricks you employ to stay in shape?
I travel sometimes with resistance bands. They come in all strengths and lengths. They don’t take up too much space in my suitcase and they’re really easy to use to tone biceps, triceps and other parts I may need to pep up before a shoot or an event.
I also find it quite useful to use pool towels to do my yoga stretches in my room. They’re as long as yoga mats and really useful when you work up a good sweat.
Besides working out, tell us the truth, are you on any impossibly restrictive diet we hear so many celebs are on?
The only dietary restrictions I hold is to avoid all things white: white sugar, white pasta, white rice, white flour…I have learned that you can have carbs for fuel but being sensible with carbs gives you extra mileage. Your carbs are meant to give you fuel, but it’s also meant to give you good fiber and other nutritional value. So it’s my new thing, I can’t say no to pasta but I can say yes to whole wheat pasta.
My other secret is quinoa – it’s a beautiful grain that is high in protein and very fibrous. It’s super yummy in salads.
That’s sounds like fabulous dietary advice that I am sure many of our readers can adhere to, thanks for that! You know how many celebs deny going for beauty treatments… do you undergo any beauty treatments to help you stay in such fabulous shape?
I recently discovered Coolsculpt at The Sloane Clinic and I’m shockingly surprised to see results. I had never tried any body treatment before and was getting annoyed with my workouts not being as effective as they were in my 20’s. I had tried pretty much everything to bust fat around my inner thighs and yoga stretches to tighten my buttocks, but nothing worked.
Coolsculpting, the non-invasive fat melting treatment that allows you to pop in and out of the clinic without downtime? My first follow-up question would be: Is it painful? And my second would be: Did it work for you?
I had 2 simple and painless sessions. The suction device that traps your trouble spot was rather ticklish around the inner, but after a couple of minutes I got used it and fell asleep. I first saw the results after a month at the swimming pool. I was pleasantly surprised to see the unflattering areas tighten so much. It was almost gone! I would definitely do it again.
Only two sessions? That sounds almost too good to be true, yet looking at you, I cannot help but believe that Coolsculpting most certainly worked for you. So would you recommend this to our readers?
Yes, I would highly recommend it to friends and family. I find that it’s even more effective when you combine it with a good workout. It drains the fat faster and gives better results.
One last tip to stay body beautiful like you.
