Adriana Lima: Victoria's Secret Diet Rumors Are A 'Misunderstanding'
Adriana Lima wasn't too pleased to hear that reports of the extreme diet Victoria's Secret Angels must adopt in order to prep for the annual fashion show were swirling around the media.
The Telegraph wrote in an article that Lima testified to being on a pre-show nine-day liquid diet consisting of protein shakes and egg powder, after which she was banned from drinking water for 12 hours leading up to the show. They also reported that Lima worked out twice a day for the three weeks before.
However, Adriana is insisting that the details of the "crazy diet" are just a "misunderstanding." She spoke with E! Canada to set the record straight. She even showed E! Canada her piece of coffee cake prior to the show, saying, “I have my Starbucks coffee right there… it was a misunderstanding.”
Like anyone whose body is her source of income -- or who poses in her skivvies for all to see -- the model says she's conscious of her figure. She admits, “You can’t eat everything, of course… I eat healthy and work out a lot.”
The new mom also hopes to set a good example for others, saying, “Those teenagers out there, don’t go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don’t do that please!”
We're glad Adriana is trying to be a healthy role model, and we're relieved to hear those extreme diet rumors were one big confusion.
