Adriana Lima Reveals Shocking Victoria's Secret Diet Regime

Adriana Lima has candidly shared the lengths she goes to when it comes to looking good for the annual Victoria's Secret show. She has spoken on her shocking diet, which includes taking up a liquid diet of only protein shakes for over a week before the big day. The Telegraph reported:
She sees a nutritionist, who has measured her body’s muscle mass, fat ratio and levels of water retention. He prescribes protein shakes, vitamins and supplements to keep Lima’s energy levels up during this training period. Lima drinks a gallon of water a day. For nine days before the show, she will drink only protein shakes – “no solids”. The concoctions include powdered egg. Two days before the show, she will abstain from the daily gallon of water, and “just drink normally”.

 12 hours before the show, she will stop drinking entirely in an effort to lose some last minute weight:

 ”No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that."

 Lima has been working out since August for the show, and for the last three weeks, had kicked her regime into overdrive, working out twice a day:

 "It is really intense, it's not really the amount of time you spend working out, it's the intensity: I jump rope, I do boxing, I lift weights, but I get bored doing that. If I am not moving I get bored very easily." 

Victoria's Secret stylist Sophia Neophitou added that Adriana is extremely disciplined: 

"Adriana works really hard at it. It's the same as if you were a long-distance runner. They are athletes in this environment - it's harder to be a Victoria's Secret model because no one can just chuck an outfit on you, and hide your lumps and bumps."
