Want to have a rockin' hot bod like a Victoria's Secret model? Adriana Lima said it's not as easy as walking down the catwalk, as she revealed her diet secrets and regiment which take weeks of preparation and discipline before the annual fashion show.
What's her secret to look so stunning? No solid foods and oodles of water.
According to Lima, she begins working out with a personal trainer months beforehand and commits to twice-a-day workouts three weeks leading up to the Victoria's Secret fashion show.
I know it's very intense but ... I just have an athlete's mind and I appreciate doing this thing, she revealed to the Telegraph.
While that seems pretty typical for a 30-year-old mother of one to require, Lima said she doesn't eat any solid food nine days before the show, instead opting for protein shakes and water. Her nutritionist prescribes her the shakes, comprised of powdered egg, which she drinks daily along with a gallon of water per day.
Within 12 hours before her debut in the show, Brazil-born Lima actually abstains from water completely.
No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that, she told the Telegraph.
Lima said she only does this once per year leading up to the annual fashion show, which eight million people reportedly watch each year.
It's not that I do crazy diets throughout the year. I just do it for this particular thing. After this show, I become normal again, she said.
Lima has gotten a ton of criticism about her no solid food diet for the show, but she has since made a public service announcement to teens so they don't try it at home, as Lima has professional dieticians helping her throughout her strict regimen.
Those teenagers out there, don't go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don't do that please, she told ET Canada.
Adriana Lima, mother of 2-year-old Valentina and wife of Marko Jaric, told ET Canada her comments in the Telegraph were mistaken, as she gnawed on coffee and a piece of cake during the second interview.
I have my Starbucks coffee right there ... it was a misunderstanding, Lima said.
