How do the Victoria’s Secret Models stay or get into shape for the Victoria’s Secret shows? Here are some of this year’s show models giving a few secrets on what they do:
Lindsay Ellingson told Fashionista:
“I think it’s sexier and more feminine to be more full. So I add like almond butter, peanut butter, protein shakes to my diet, just to feel a little sexier and curvier.” Although the model said she “steps up” her workouts in preparation for the show, she added: “I try not to stress about it because that’s never good.”…
Candice Swanepoel told the Daily Beast:
“I eat a lot of protein because my metabolism is really fast, and if I work out too much I get smaller, so it’s a good balance of working out and resting in between.”
She cuts all solid food out of her diet nine days before the big show, sticking just to liquids — including protein shakes made with egg whites and up to a gallon of water a day.
Lily told the Daily Beast after having a child in 2012 that “… having a healthy diet is important. Nothing crazy. I definitely dieted, though. I ate a lot of organic salmon and vegetables. I couldn’t have worked harder — maybe I’m not as tiny as I used to be, but I’m womanly now and I’m proud of that.”
Alessandro Ambrosio told US Weekly:
“I cut all the sugars and sweets 10 days before and I got my trainer…and we were doing lots of glutes and arms and back exercises,” This was in 2012 when she walked the show and was secretly a couple months pregnant!
