Adriana Lima Defends Her Victoria's Secret Show Diet

  In a recent interview, Adriana Lima candidly commented on the lengths she goes to in order to look good for the annual Victoria's Secret show (read the full article here). In the interview, she admits to cutting out solid foods for over a week leading up to the show, and she also cuts out liquids for 12 hours before the event in order to drop a few extra pounds. The interview quickly spread, with many saying that Adriana may be setting a bad example for those who want a body like hers, especially teenage girls who may look up to the model. She has now appealed to teenagers not to take her diet regime seriously:

“Those teenagers out there, don’t go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don’t do that please.” Adriana insists that she snacks backstage before the show, and that the diet was 'misunderstood': “I have my Starbucks coffee right there … it was a misunderstanding,"

Adriana also says that she doesn't keep up the diet for long - only for the period leading up to the show: “I know it’s very intense but … I just have an athlete’s mind and I appreciate doing this thing, 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.”
