Somewhat predictably, Adriana Lima has come under fire after admitting that she goes on an all-liquid diet nine days before the show. Anderson Cooper put even put her on the Ridiculist! And now the model is defending herself.
“Those teenagers out there, don’t go starving yourself or only drinking liquids. Don’t do that please… 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.”
We’re glad she’s qualifying her statements and discouraging teenagers out there from following in her footsteps, but we still appreciate her honesty. But while it’s nice to know that her body is indeed as realistically unattainable as it looks, in a perfect world, Lima wouldn’t need to diet at all.
