Victoria Secret

Today (whilst trying to figure out different areas of primary research) I decided to find different stories and interviews given to by Victoria Secret models as I believe many young girls look up to these women as glamorous and the concept of ‘perfection’. The first thing I saw was a ‘diet plan’ to help the models maintain their underweight BMI and decreased body fattening appearances; which these diets could be seen on the internet for any individual to see and potentially repeat. I found this on a website (http://fluffy-to-fit.tumblr.com/vsmodeltips) that tells the readers a plan of dieting that the Victoria Secret models stick by in order to stay in shape. Here is what I found:

  • Break­fast: Such things as egg whites oat­meal, veg­gies, fruit, organic yogurt. Lean pro­tein and slow-burning, com­plex carbs.
  • Lunch: You’ll nearly always see a Victoria secret model backstage sipping on a green smoothie! A green smoothie includes water and a range of leafy greens (spinach, lettuce, etc. The darker the veggie the more vitamin it holds, so imagine how much you’d be getting from a green smoothie!), a salad (raw, or slightly steamed) topped with chicken or turkey, fish (Such as tuna or salmon), or lean  meat.
  • Din­ner: Eat veg­eta­bles (Just like the previous, eat your greans! steamed spinach, cau­li­flower, zuc­chini, broccoli asparagus) with fish, chicken, or turkey, also sweet potato is a big favourite of Miranda Kerrs!
  • Snacks: Low-glycemic fruits like berries, cher­ries, pears, apples, kiwi; A good treat that Jason suggests to the models is having apple with a spoon of peanut but­ter, I personally suggest a nut mix like almonds, peanuts, cashews, You can buy this at Woolworths and other supermarkets it’s one of my favourites! (Make sure it’s salt and sugar-free); hum­mus with cucum­ber slices or celery, or a small por­tion of a left­over meal.

As you can see from this piece of information, the models eat no processed foods to help maintain their body weight. Although this is a delightful eating habit due to the well balanced nutritions and positive food types, eating a decreased amount is an unhealthy way of losing weight and should be done properly.
