The Victoria’s Secret model reveals her extreme diet before she hits the runway; no solid food and twice-a-day workouts!
No solid food, twice-a-day workouts and no water?!
Yep- welcome the life of one Victoria’s Secret model and her extreme, pre-runway routine.
Adriana Lima – a veteran Angel and mother of a 1-year-old – reveals in a new interview with The Telegraph exactly how she gets her smokin’ bod runway-ready.
Two months before the annual VS show, the model hits the gym not once but twice a day – doing everything from jumping rope to boxing to keep her trademark curves in top form.
And you know how you’re supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day? Well, this supermodel guzzles a GALLON a day when she’s training hard.
But 12 hours before the big show- it’s no agua at all. None.
Lima tells the paper: “No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that.”
So what does she eat? Salads, maybe? Grilled fish? Nope – try no solid foods for nine days pre-strut!
Instead, Lima drinks protein shakes made with powdered eggs. Yummy.
So, is all that sacrifice really worth it? According to this model, absolutely.
She says: “Actually, the Victoria’s Secret show is the highlight of my life. Becoming an Angel, once I achieved that, it was a dream-come-true for me.”
Well, Adriana, props for living the dream – and for admitting it’s not easy looking that perfect!
