Being healthy when you’re super busy can be tricky as making healthy food takes much longer and is generally more expensive than grabbing a sandwich or chocolate bar at work. But we’re about to show you that it can be done, thanks to these healthy tips from  daily routine of successful people

Not to mention, a healthier life means more energy, brain power and less fatigue meaning that you’re going to become more successful too!

1. Shots! Shots! Shots!

Sadly, the Apple Cider Vinegar kind. This natural detox method has loads of successful devotees including supermodel Heidi Klum, and involves consuming one spoonful of apple cider vinegar a day. Experts agree that this is a great way to help shed the pounds as it flushes out fats in the colon and aids digestion. It can also help lower your blood pressure, so we think you should buy a bottle immediately!

2. Kale up like Gwyneth Paltrow

The Goop founder knows a thing or two about staying healthy, and she outlined her strict diet regime for her role in Iron Man 2 on her website. She would drink a glass of kale juice after her morning workout, have a low carb Mountain Valley wrap for lunch, and a turkey kale soup for dinner. She would snack on kale juice and almonds during the day. This sounds pretty extreme, but there’s no denying the wonderful health properties of kale, and if it’s good enough for Gwyneth, it’s good enough for us!

3. Coconut oil

By now we’ve all heard that coconut oil is healthier than most other options, and it’s certainly pretty fashionable right now. But models including Miranda Kerr and experts alike, go even further to say you should eat it every day! Kerr eats one spoonful of unrefined coconut oil every morning to kickstart her digestive system, just try mixing a spoonful into your morning coffee, apparently it tastes pretty good!

4. Start your day with water

We know the benefits of lemon water, but some believe that just a mug of plain hot water in the morning and evening is enough to flush out your system and leave you feeling more energetic and fresh. Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver starts and ends every day with a cup of hot water, and she says it’s her secret weapon in fighting the bloat. She told Fashionista “Think about cleaning your drain at home – if you do it with normal water, nothing really happens, but with hot water, it clears out the whole thing.” Makes sense!

5. Go French with green tea, ballet, and vodka?!

We imagine you need to be at the top of your health game to be a Vogue Editor, and Vogue France’s Carine Roitfeld has some pretty unusual secrets she sticks to. She doesn’t diet but does love to drink green tea in the day, and vodka at night. She told Elle “I drink green tea all day long, and at night I drink vodka. So each night, I have my vodka. I’m not an alcoholic, but I do love vodka. And then I do ballet. French women—we eat everything.”

6. Cut out the red meat

We think Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is pretty much a perfect example of good health, and as well as the usual clean eating and exercise, Rosie says that a recent change to avoiding red meat has made her feel much lighter and brighter. She told Vogue Australia, “Since I cut it out I have noticed how much lighter and better I feel.” And the science backs this up as red meat is harder to digest, and thus takes much longer than other foods.

Some serious food for thought, and a few tips were going to take up tomorrow!
