Four years later, her appearance in Alexander McQueen‘s memorable rain-soaked London runway show in the spring of 1998 launched her spectacular modeling career and ended the era of “heroin chic” fashion.

Eighty percent of the family’s diet is made up of organic vegetables and whole grains, namely brown rice, quinoa, millet, and beans that are cooked in natural coconut oil. In addition to this, food products containing white sugar and white flour are prohibited in the house.

When the family eats meat, it’s lean meat: organic steak, duck and chicken. In terms of fish, the Allen family chef cooks mostly wild salmon.

Dining between 5:30 p.m. m. and 6 p.m. M. It allows you to go to bed early and gives your body enough time to digest your food so your stomach can rest while you sleep. By doing this, for the first few hours, your body will be light and clean.

The supermodel has followed this routine for a long time, helping her keep her lean and toned body that makes her envious from the moment she wakes up.
