TGIF, am I right?
What’s up babes? Honestly, all we have on our minds right now is the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which is only 5 days away! We have watched this spectacle for years, and this one will be no different. However, this year, we will be watching with a fresh attitude. Here’s why.
We knew we had to post about the year’s sexiest, skinniest event. I mean, this is Skinny Lately, and what could possibly be more fitting?! What girl on this planet DOESN’T want to know all the secret fitness tips and tricks these hot models have up their
million-dollar bras sleeves? No hands? Okay good. So we rounded up a few of vicky’s secrets to share with you! As we researched, the results were shockingly more controversial than inspiring. Check em out and decide for yourself!
Back in 2011, CNN reported on the behind-the-scenes prep work the models put themselves through to look their slimmest on the big day. Here’s what Adriana Lima had to say:
- 2 workouts a day for 4 months leading up to the show.
- No solid food 9 days before the show – just protein shakes, water, and powdered egg whites (yikes).
- 1 gallon of water per day.
- Fast for 24-48 hours immediately before the show.
Seem extreme? Yeah, we agree. But let’s be honest…these girls get paid to be flawless. Should this be your go-to plan to slim down for your next beach getaway? No, definitely not. Unless you are getting paid a few million to strut your stuff, cut yourself some slack.
What’s interesting is that in a similar article, written up this year, the models seemed a bit more reluctant to divulge their hardcore shape-up secrets. Alessandra Ambrosio offered up these tips:
- Load up on salads and greens
- No cake (OK…duh)
- Lots of ballet-inspired workouts
We aren’t buying it. There is more to rocking a bejeweled thong on national television than avoiding cake and having a salad for lunch. So let’s all agree to take this year’s fashion show with a grain of salt. Admire their dedication, respect their sacrifices, and be grateful you aren’t in their stilletos.
