Adriana Lima recently did an interview where she revealed how she gets ready for the Victoria Secret Holiday Fashion Show… and I hope you’re ready to read about some insanity…
“So here’s what it really takes to be an Angel: 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.”
Ya…. sounds just like me – trainer, 2x a day.
“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 daily gallon of water, and “just drink normally”. Then, 12 hours before the show, she will stop drinking entirely.“No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that,” she says.“
Sounds like a great pre-wedding diet. Why didn’t I know about this in 2009?
Here she is defending herself…saying that she really only does this once a year. Hmmm… I don’t know if I believe that.
What do you think of the stress these models put their bodies through?
