Model and personal trailer Camilla Akerberg finally shares not only her diet but also her weekly exercise regime behind her amazing figure. Like what most fans expected, it takes a lot of effort to maintain her physique.
“With the knowledge behind me as a certified personal trainer and qualified nutrition coach, I am in good tune with my body and I eat foods that my body feels good eating and can digest well,” Akerberg told FEMAIL.
“I am always eager to learn more, and experiment in new ways on myself to see if it’s something that may suit me. But remember, what I eat might not be the golden pathway for you. We are all different and respond differently to foods.”
The 28-year-old model doesn’t eat the same foods every day, but she follows the same nutritional pattern.
“I eat mostly a pescatarian diet, as that works well with my body, but I do eat other meats on occasion too. I limit processed foods and added sugars – although I do admit that I am the biggest sweet tooth and love to indulge in candy and chocolates on occasion,” she shared.
“I do eat mainly very healthy though and I try and eat as much fresh, real foods as possible – and use supplements to enhance my nutrient intake.”
Akerberg usually wakes up at 5:30 am to enjoy some snacks and supplements. “I will have apple cider vinegar first thing in the morning in a big glass of water with some squeezed lemon juice,” she said.
“I have recently found it convenient to mix in my supergreens and water soluble supplements into the mix also. I also have a quick on-the-go meal before I leave the house, this morning it was a piece of pre-made frittata.”
She also has supplements including iron, curcumin, magnesium, and a multivitamin.
After training herself and her clients, she eats her breakfast at 9 am. Her meal usually includes two hardboiled eggs, avocado, tomato, smoked salmon, rocket, and a decaf almond milk piccolo latte.
“I have gone decaf for a while to decrease my stimulant intake. This is good to do once in a while if you take pre-workout and drink lots of coffee,” she expressed.
“I have BCAA’s whilst I train (and sometimes throughout the day) to help with muscle recovery, support protein synthesis, give me some energy whilst I train and they taste amazing,” Akerberg said.
Her lunch is around 1 pm and usually consists of something nutritious and quick like brown rice, broccoli, pesto, and tuna. She enjoys some snack around 3 am, often carrots and hummus.
Akerberg eats another snack around 5 pm and is often some blueberries and a piece of carob chocolate. Her dinner is around 7 pm and often consists of fish, asparagus, walnuts, cabbage, pear, and pumpkin.
She also enjoys an evening snack before bed, which consists of blueberries and a casein supplement.
Camilla Akerberg’s Weekly Exercise Regime
When it comes to her training, the 28-year-old focuses on resistance training. “I currently train five days per week in the gym with weights and also go on frequent walks to stay active. Girls, you don’t need to do cardio on overload to stay toned and don’t be scared that lifting weights will make you bulky,” she noted.
“We simply don’t have the same hormonal profile as men to become bulky – unless we really work for it and want it! Lifting weights and building lean muscle mass is a key factor to toning up! And this is the method I personally use to maintain my physique.”
Akerberg changes her training every four or six weeks. “Training is all about keeping on challenging yourself! I train harder following a plan- walking in to the gym knowing that what I am doing is important or you will come in, linger around and not get done what you need to,” she said.
“I have recently come back from a vacation in Los Angeles, and I am back into my training regime. I will follow this plan for the next few weeks before changing up the workout or specific exercises.
I also make sure I increase intensity from week to week – usually by adding more weight load or pushing out couple extra reps.”
Akerberg doesn’t give much emphasis on training her arms or chest. “I include chest exercises in my full body workout days and arms are training simultaneously with training compound back and chest exercises,” she shared.
