Victoria’s Secret Angel and supermodel Adriana Limahas one of those bodies that makes you put your head down in shame for eating that bagel and cream cheese this morning—and she has two kids. Aside from her fitness regimen—she does boxing and cardio on the regular, and she’s pretty hardcore about it—her diet also plays a big role in her rock-hard abs and incredible physique. So, when we learned that the model dished to Vogue about her favorite morning drink that helps keep her slim, we were all ears.
