I can’t begin to think how wrong this is, it can’t be good for you.
If you ever wanted to look like a Victoria Secret Model you may think again once you hear how they look so “good” when they hit the runway for the globally televised show donning wings and bras bedazzled with millions of diamonds. It’s a wonder they can stand up under the weight of the their wings! Check this out it’s just insane…

To prepare to wear tiny lingerie on such a major stage, the models must look their best — and veteran Angel Adriana Lima revealed to the Telegraph just how they do it.
First, she starts working out: “Lima, 30, has been working out every day with a personal trainer since August. For the last three weeks, she’s been working out twice a day.”
Then comes the insane diet. Hint: there are very few solids involved:
She sees a nutritionist, who has measured her body’s muscle mass, fat ratio and levels of water retention. He prescribes protein shakes, vitamins and supplements to keep Lima’s energy levels up during this training period. Lima drinks a gallon of water a day. For nine days before the show she will drink only protein shakes – “no solids”. The concoctions include powdered egg.Two days before the show she will abstain from the gallon of water a day, and “just drink normally”. Then, 12 hours before the show she will stop drinking entirely.
WTF! So she ends up walking a show dehydrated and starving, whoa that’s hot!
Whether or not you have a nutritionist or not, that is not healthy. I understand that at times in some professions you might have to to make certain sacrifices in order to fit a certain criteria (as a dancer I well know that) but this is crazy, especially given the fact that she (Adriana Lima) is already so thin! Or does this tell us that she is not as naturally as thin as she appears? Is she living her life in a perpetual state of hunger to maintain her size and thus her contract? And if she is naturally thin then how much thinner does she have to be to wall the runway?
Let me just say this: To all the young girls and women who aspire to be or look like Victoria Secret models—
DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE!
Dieting like this is not healthy for you body and can have adverse effects in the long run, you screw up your metabolism which can cause the yo-yo weight gain and loss that is hard to control, it also can create real, long term health problems, and in extreme cases can do damage to your organs. It’s not worth it. I’ll tell you another secret, CURVES ARE SEXY, they are feminine and beautiful. Breasts and hips and thighs are attributes that set women apart from men in the most delicious ways, and there was a time when the Victoria Secret brand celebrated that!
