About the Author

Jill de Jong was born in Holland, and her successful modeling career brought her to the US. She was based in New York for many years, explored Miami for a few years, and then fell in love with Los Angeles, where she currently resides; a great place to pursue her passion for health and wellness. She made the career shift from full-time modeling to health coach, personal trainer, and chef, and has never looked back.

When Jill is not working, you can find her in the kitchen cooking or outside in Malibu running, biking, surfing, or stretching in a yoga class. She recharges by spending time with her boyfriend and friends. Meaningful conversations and delicious food make her heart sing. To stay motiviated to exercise, she signs up for triathlons and Spartan races.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“I love that Jill de Jong is not only taking the fear away from eating, but intelligently guides you in her easy-to-follow book toward delicious and healthy recipes.”

—Gabby Reece

“Jill de Jong and her expert coauthors show you not only that models do eat—but that nourishing food is what allows them to look and feel as good as they do! This book is packed with beautifying recipes that will inspire you to feed your body well at every meal.”

—Jolene Hart, health coach and author of the bestselling Eat Pretty series

Models Do Eat is a great book to use for everyday living. As a model myself, I constantly get asked what do I eat? I’m a firm believer in organic and foods that fuel your body, avoiding diet traps like counting calories or eating fat-free, depriving one’s self. This book has the best kind of recipes: easy to follow and powerful for mind, body, and soul.”

—Robyn Lawley, Sports Illustrated cover model

“Never trust anyone who tells you that not eating is the key to looking good! I applaud Jill and her team for creating this stunning, important book about one of the best parts of life: delicious, nourishing food! Models Do Eat is a celebration of healthy eating for real beauty—inside and out.”

Lauren Lobely, author of Accidental Paleo and plant-based chef

“Jill is such an inspiring woman. She’s the real deal; she practices what she preaches. I’ll always be on team Jill because she genuinely wants everyone to win.”

Nadine Velazquez, actress

“I used to eat lots of processed foods and over-exercised to make up for it. Jill introduced me to eating clean, unprocessed, delicious food, and I discovered that a healthy lifestyle was far from boring. I finally found the balance I needed. Jill has a very light and beautiful way to approach people and I am sure this book and her approach to food will captivate you.”

Martha Graeff, fashion blogger and model

First, I would like to thank Netgalley and BenBella Publishing for providing me with a free PDF copy of this cookbook in exchange for an honest review. This is the first cookbook in which I have found the opening chapters to be more valuable than the recipes. In most cookbooks, I admittedly flip through the pictures until I find something appetizing. This book is incredibly relevant to any woman on diet because it reinforces the fact that 1) carbs are not the enemy and 2) being healthy means a lot more than cutting carbs and counting calories; it means feeling good in YOUR body. Hey, if models can eat carbs, then so can I! As for the recipes, they are very easy to follow. However, they are divided up by model. Each model has a general theme, but overall, there is a lack of continuity or flow. I believe this cookbook would have benefited its readers more by separating the recipes into categories rather than grouping each model's recipes together. Unless I were planning on following a particular model's recipes, as a reader, I really don't care who wrote the recipe. Recipe author highlights could still be incorporated throughout the book but would not necessarily need to precede the recipes. The final thing I would add is the nutrition facts for each recipe, either on the recipe page or in an appendix. Overall, I was very impressed with this cookbook. I just wish I had it in hardcopy :)\ #netgalley #modelsdoeat

I am reviewing this book for Jill de Jong, BenBella Books, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. As well as providing us with healthy recipes, there are a list of foods which you can eat from and another list to avoid as these affect your gut. It encourages people to exercise but everyday exercise – go for a walk, or a cycle ride. Can’t wait to try some of these recipes.
