Aasen loves falafel, but won’t touch any meat. “I don’t eat meat, just fish. I don’t like meat, though; I never did,” she says. “Growing up, I would sort of push the chicken around when we had dinner and just eat the rice or potatoes.” Chickpeas in foods like falafel are great for you. “Perceived satiation increased while participants consumed chickpeas and perceived bowel function improved. Health benefits, increases in dietary variety and satiation with legume consumption were the main perceived benefits, while inconvenience and gastrointestinal upset discouraged legume consumption,” says one study.

Aasen mixes up her workouts to keep things fun. “I do Pilates at SLT. It’s so tough! I like SoulCycle, too. I love the hip-hop-themed rides; they’re my favorite,” she says. “I just did one that was about the evolution of Rihanna. It was incredible.”

Aasen keeps herself accountable by working out with her buddies. “My friend Frida Aasen [a fellow Victoria’s Secret model] and I went to a workout right before Fashion Week,” says Herieth Paul. “I love going to Dogpound. You just feel stronger going in there, and we have a trainer that kicks our butt.”

Aasen’s favorite NYC restaurant is Omen, a Japanese restaurant in Soho—the perfect choice for a supermodel. “Traditionally, the Japanese tend to have a healthy attitude to food and eating,” says registered nutritionist Nicola Shubrook. “They have a saying, ‘hara hachi bu’, which means to eat until you are 80% full, and it’s not uncommon to teach children this philosophy from a young age.”
