Wanna Look Like a Victoria's Secret Supermodel?

Adriana Lima prepping for the 2011 Victoria's Secret Show

Who doesn't? Well, Adriana Lima, VS model, shared her secrets to slimming down before the big runway show with People magazine and now I am sharing her secrets to being skinny in a short amount of time with you! I should put a disclaimer out there that Adriana even notes that she doesn't recommend you go and do her diet at home, but nonetheless, here are her secrets:

"In the run-up to the annual shows, I work out twice a day and drink only protein shakes for nine days. I indulge in "no solids" for those days, then, for 12 hours before the show, no liquids at all so you dry out - sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that."

Yikes! Seems like kind of an extreme way to lose weight, but if you are anything like me, you've probably tried a few extreme diets {remember my Dukan obsession?} from time to time.

What do you think of this diet? Does it  make you feel better that she literally has to eat nothing to look like that on the runway? I have to say that it makes me feel just a teensy bit better that she isn't stuffing her face with donuts and Pepsi in the days before a shoot and still looking like that. She has to diet just like the rest of us!


  1. Thank you for your sweet comment! I am not a huge diet fanatic (as though anyone really is), so I have to agree with you that protein shakes and liquids are a bit extreme....unless I can count coffee as a liquid :) I am officially subscribed and look forward to some great beauty trends!

  2. No thank you!! she's absolutely gorgeous but I need food...real one that type that I can absolutely smell and taste!! :)

  3. No liquids for 12 hours doesn't sound good... although she looks great, why would you wantto "dry out"..lol??

    THanks for the visit!! off to read more

  4. I normally don't agree with crash diets but hers doesn't sound so bad. Plus, it's once a year, even I would do that to look good in front of millions!
